Reviews for the Dell Inspiron 14R-N4010

80% Dell Inspiron 14R-N4010 Laptop
Source: Tech2.in.com English
The performance of N4010 and the N5010 is almost the same, mainly in terms of processing power. In fact, this machine can be compared with any other laptop which performs well with an Intel Core i3-330 CPU. However, while using heavy applications, you’ll notice how the additional RAM is beneficial. And ofcourse, the N5010 will be better at GPU-intensive tasks. Take a look at the benchmarks and the scores of both the laptops are almost the same.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

350M:

The Core i3-350M is technically a Core i5-430M without the Turbo Boost overlocking feature. Therefore, it always clocks with max. 2.26 GHz (of course Speedstep is included). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.

14.0": 14 inch display size is a mixture between the small formats of subnotebooks and the 15 inch standard display. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.3 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 13 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
