Dell Inspiron 14 5410 and 7415: Two convertibles as different as the left and right Twix

Teaser
Dell could possibly even confuse professionals a bit with the Inspiron 5410 and 7415 convertibles. The two laptop series are identical on the outside. In terms of technology, they basically only differ when it comes to the choice of processors.
Marc Herter (translated by Stephanie Chamberlain), 🇩🇪

Lenovo laptops with Intel or AMD processors are usually only differentiated by an "I" or an "AMD" in the name. Asus and Acer have only used cryptic model codes recently. Dell, on the other hand, has reinvented the wheel and named the outwardly identical 14-inch convertibles "Inspiron 5410" for the models with Intel processors and "Inspiron 7415" for the devices with AMD processors. We had a test unit of both models and, as usual, we conducted a detailed review.

If you compare the Dell Inspiron 5410 with the Dell Inspiron 7415, you will hardly find any obvious differences. Even on the inside, the similarity between the two laptops is astounding. Apart from the different battery sizes, you would probably have to use a screwdriver here to tell the difference between the Intel and AMD models.

If you look at the individual benchmarks of the laptops, you will almost only be able to detect a difference when it comes to comparing the Intel Core i7 and the AMD Ryzen 7. AMD beats Intel in the multi-core benchmarks, while Intel beats AMD in the single-core benchmarks. In the system benchmarks, the AMD Inspiron is clearly in the lead for the first time. Probably also because it has an edge in terms of RAM and SSD speeds.

Customers who want to make a purchase decision based on the performance rates will have a hard time here. And Dell's naming doesn't really help in making the whole situation any easier. This is because the models with seven thousand numbers actually represent a higher quality than those with five thousand numbers. To add a bit more confusion to all of this: The Dell Inspiron 14 7400 laptops are exclusively available with Intel processors.

Our reviews of the Dell Inspiron 5410 (with Intel processor) and the Dell Inspiron 7415 (with AMD processor) show where the two laptops really differ, and where names might only be smoke and mirrors.

From an early age I liked to thoroughly examine all kinds of devices to see how they worked, which also involved taking my own devices apart and therefore not always to the delight of my parents. Nevertheless, with my grandfather’s support, I became a computer and electronics tinkerer. With the family PC and Lego Mindstorms, my interested in software and programming took off, and I am currently an engineering program student. I enjoy building all sorts of gadgets with Arduino and 3D printers, and I still like to put electronic devices through their paces. By joining the Notebookcheck editorial team, I have been able to turn my hobby into a profession.

I've been fascinated with technology ever since I got my very first Android smartphone, which was quite a while ago. The power packed into such a small footprint still amazes me. Learning to program made my understanding of technology deeper, and at the same time, it expanded my interest to the area of desktop computers and laptops. All this led me to enjoy reading and watching reviews of new devices, and that's how I stumbled upon Notebookcheck. I immediately found their reviews to be very comprehensive, and luckily, I've even had the chance of translating them since 2019. When it comes to the huge field of technology, I'm currently also interested in specializing in Java programming.
