Reviews for the Dell Studio 1458

Dell Studio 14: Defining Solid
Source: AnandTech English
That rant is essentially neither here nor there, though: Dell can really only equip their notebooks with what's available, and odds are good that jumping to a 5650 would've put too sizable a dent in that impressive battery life and perhaps generated too much heat for the chassis to handle. The rest of the Studio 14 is exceptionally well-rounded: quiet, powerful, flexible, portable.

The new Dell Studio 14 combines best performance with a very good design. It has nice feature sets and sells for an attractive price. A great 14-inch all-purpose laptop for the home.

It was time for new laptop, donated old Dell XPS M170 to family member. My first impression was it was a little larger and heavier than I imagined.I enjoy using the system and would buy it again.

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.


2.4 kg: This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
