The mid-range Inspiron 14 5000 series sits in between the lower-end Inspiron 14 3000 series and higher-end Inspiron 14 7000 series. For $500, you'll essentially be paying a low-end price for what is considered the latest generation mid-range laptop.

It looks like Dell really wants to get rid of all of its current Inspiron 14 stock. After having bumped down the price to $700 USD just a few weeks ago, the system is now down to just $519 to be almost $200 cheaper.

There is a catch to the new deal, of course. Core specifications have been bumped down from the Core i7-1165G7 CPU and 16 GB of RAM on the $700 SKU to the Core i5-1135G7 CPU with just 8 GB of single-channel RAM on the $519 SKU. Thankfully, any performance differences between the Core i5 and Core i7 will be mostly trivial for typical browsing or streaming loads while the limited 8 GB of RAM can thankfully be upgraded. Perhaps most importantly, the display remains the same at 1080p instead of the horrid 768p option that remains commonplace on laptops in this price range.

We've yet to review the Inspiron 14 5402 and so we can't offer our personal experiences with the model. But, for a little over $500, this looks to be one of the better deals available at the moment.

  • Core i5-1135G7 CPU w/ Iris Xe graphics
  • 14-inch 1080p 300-nit IPS display
  • 8 GB DDR4 3200 MHz single-channel RAM (likely upgradeable)
  • 512 GB NVMe SSD (upgradeable)
  • 2x USB-A, 1x USB-C Gen. 2 w/ DisplayPort and Power Delivery, HDMI 1.4, MicroSD reader, 3.5 mm combo audio
  • 17.9 x 321.3 x 216.15 mm
  • 1.429 kg

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
