80% Dell Inspiron 14 7000 review: Capable, but not uncompromising
Source: It Pro English
If you can negotiate the price down to around 15% less, and you’ll take daily advantage of the power and portability it offers, there are reasons to consider the Inspiron 14 7000 over the less powerful HP Envy 13 and the more expensive Dell XPS 13. However, if you’re fussy about screens and keyboards, we suggest you steer clear.

82.9% Dell Inspiron 14 7400 7415 2-in-1 Review: High performance on a budget | Notebookcheck
Dell's latest Inspiron convertible offers an experience that's close to the XPS 2-in-1 or Latitude 2-in-1 while costing hundreds of dollars less. There are some catches, of course, but they don't detract all that much from the core experience.

It’s tough to beat the affordable price of the Inspiron 14. The best part is the battery life, which can easily outlast your average day at the office. However, the Inspiron 14 lacks ports, with a dim, disappointing display and slow SSD speeds compared to the competition..If the Dell Inspiron 14 doesn’t suit your needs, check out the Asus Vivobook Pro 14 or the Asus Zenbook 13, which both deliver better performance and more eye-catching OLED displays for roughly the same price.

70% Dell Inspiron 14 7415 Review: Nice features on a budget
Source: Toptenreviews English
Meanwhile, AMD’s integrated Radeon graphics still aren’t made for serious gaming, but I was able to eke out a session of Fortnite at medium graphics settings and 50% display scaling. And, of course, less demanding games like the 2D platformer Axiom Verge 2 worked just fine. Still, I’ve had better gaming experiences with the Iris Xe graphics in Intel Core i7-powered laptops and our 3DMark Time Spy test shows that these laptops tend to fare better in gaming benchmarks as well. Overall, this Dell Inspiron 14 2-in-1 offers a lot to like, especially at its oft- discounted price of $. It’s a sturdy laptop with strong performance, a convertible touchscreen, loud speakers, and a convenient fingerprint reader. But the trade­offs you’ll make in pursuit of that lower price—most notably the dim display and stiff trackpad—might just keep you from outright loving it.

Dell Inspiron 14 2-in-1 review: A mainstream laptop you can fall in love with
Source: XDA Developers English
The short answer is yes, the Dell Inspiron 14 2-in-1 is an easy laptop to recommend. Despite a few shortcomings, it still punches well above its weight. As mentioned, there are a few shortcomings. The screen falls short in the color gamut department, and performance takes a big hit when the laptop isn’t connected to power. And of course, the webcam is still 720p. With all of that considered, I still fell in love with this machine. It’s just a delight, from the keyboard with its larger keys to the familiar yet unique design that has rounded edges and a subtle blue color. Performance in general is pretty good too, as tends to be the case with AMD Ryzen processors. And let’s not forget that all specced out, it still only costs $1,049. If that’s the price target that you’re trying to hit, then I’m not sure what else you could want from a laptop.

60% Dell Inspiron 14 2-in-1 (7415) review: an affordable home machine
Source: T3 English
There is a lot of competition for the Inspiron 14 – £900/$1000 gets you a lot of computer these days. Overall though, the Inspiron 14 is a decent pick for this budget, with acceptable performance and build quality. It’s no gaming machine, though, and the compromises that keep the price down are evident in the flimsy keyboard and the screen that just can’t manage the brightness levels that make games and videos pop off the screen.

At first blush, the Dell Inspiron 14 7415 2-in-1's aluminum chassis and classy deep blue cover give the impression of a premium convertible, and its eight-core AMD Ryzen 7 processor acts the part with highly capable performance. After using it for a bit, however, the dim display will disappoint and the cheap touchpad will annoy. Plus, it's a bit of a bruiser even among larger-screened, tank-like convertibles. In the end, we think you're better off spending a bit more for a truly premium 2-in-1 from HP's or Dell's stable, or opting for Lenovo's AMD-based Flex 5 14 and pocketing the savings.

70% Dell Inspiron 14 2-in-1 review: A sad display on a good laptop
Source: Digital Trends English
The Inspiron 14 2-in-1 is a difficult laptop to rate. It’s well-built and looks good, and it provides excellent performance and long battery life. Those are good enough to warrant the $1,000 price, just barely. However, the display is a letdown, and that creates a dilemma. If your productivity workflow is demanding and you don’t care about wide colors, then the Inspiron 14 2-in-1 will meet your needs in an exemplary fashion. The problem is, you can spend the same or less money and find laptops with similar performance and better displays. I’ll mention at least one in the following section. I’ll recommend that Inspiron 14 2-in-1, but with some serious qualifications. The Inspiron 14 2-in-1 is fast and power-efficient, but the display’s poor brightness and colors limit its usefulness for creators. If you don’t care about wide colors, then it works well as a productivity machine without any creative aspirations.

Priced at just under $1,000, the Dell Inspiron 14 2-in-1 is a good all-rounder laptop. With AMD Ryzen chips under the hood, it works great as a general day-to-day machine for web browsing, light photo editing, and your daily Teams or Zoom calls.

Dell: Dell Inc. is a multinational technology corporation that develops, manufactures, sells, and supports personal computers and other computer-related products. Based in Texas, Dell employs more than 82,700 people worldwide (2009). In 2006, Dell purchased the computer hardware manufacturer Alienware. In most countries, the laptops are directly sold to consumers by Dell and each notebook custom-assembled according to a selection of options. In 2014, the global market share of Dell laptops was 12.3% and it is 14% in 2016.


Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Intel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620.

NVIDIA GeForce MX250: Successor of the MX150 and still based on the same Pascal GP108 chip (similar to the desktop GT 1030) but with higher clock speeds. Available in two versions, a normal 25 Watt version and a low power version with 10 Watt TDP and reduced performance. The 25 Watt version e.g. offers a 21% higher boost clock than the old MX150 leading to a 5% performance gain.

NVIDIA GeForce MX350: Successor of the MX250 and most likely a renamed GeForce GTX 1050 based on the Pascal GP107 chip with 640 shaders and a 64 Bit memory bus for GDDR5.

AMD Vega 8: Integrated graphics card of the Ryzen APUs based on the Vega architecture with 8 CUs (= 512 shaders) and a clock of up to 2.100 MHz.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Comet Lake:

i5-10210U: Comet Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Whiskey Lake and still produced in 14nm++). The CPU cores can clock between 1.6 and 4.2 GHz (all 4 cores 3.9 GHz max.) with HyperThreading (8 threads). The integrated memory controller supports LPDDR4-2933 and using cTDP up/down the performance can be adjusted by the OEM (10 - 25 Watt possible, 15W default). Compared to the faster i5-10510U, the level 3 cache was reduced from 8 to 6 MB.

i7-10510U: Comet Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Whiskey Lake and still produced on 14nm++). The CPU cores can clock between 1.8 and 4.9 GHz (all 4 cores 4.3 GHz max.) with HyperThreading (8 threads). The integrated memory controller supports DDR4-2666 and using cTDP up/down the performance can be adjusted by the OEM (10 - 25 Watt possible, 15W default).

Intel Tiger Lake:

i7-1165G7: An upper mid-range, quad-core processor of Tiger Lake product family. The i7 is designed for use in ultra-light (yet actively cooled) laptops; it is manufactured on Intel's second-gen 10 nm process marketed as SuperFin. The CPU cores run at 2.8 GHz (base clock speed @ 28 W TDP) to 4.7 GHz (single-core Boost frequency). This i7 features the 96 EU Intel Iris Xe G7 iGPU; it was the second-fastest CPU of TGL-UP3 line-up when Intel initially launched the series in 2020.

AMD Lucienne (Zen 2, Ryzen 5000):

R7 5700U: A laptop-grade APU with eight SMT-enabled Zen 2 cores running 1.8 GHz to 4.3 GHz and a Vega series graphics adapter with 8 CUs clocked at up to 1,900 MHz.
