The Dell Inspiron 14 7400 comes with either the Intel Core i5-1135G7 or the Intel Core i7-1165G7. Our review device has the Core i7 CPU, 16 GB of RAM, Nvidia’s GeForce MX350 and a 1 TB SSD. There is also a model without a dedicated GPU.

The Dell laptop looks very slim and modern. However, when compared to the rest of the competition, the Inspiron 14 needs a bit more depth because it has a 16:10 screen. The display has a QHD resolution, does not use PWM and is quite colour-accurate. Despite a low contrast ratio and a somewhat elevated black value, we find the screen to be very good, especially in day-to-day use.

Although the Dell notebook does not feature a lot of ports, it comes with a Thunderbolt 4 port, which allows users to easily expand connectivity with the help of various adapters and docking stations. The Inspiron 14 also has an HDMI port and a microSD card reader. Even though the Thunderbolt 4 port can be used for charging the device, the power adapter comes with a barrel plug.

Thanks to a Tiger Lake CPU, the Dell laptop offers a good level of performance. The Nvidia GeForce MX350 in the Inspiron 14 is somewhat more powerful than the integrated Intel Iris Xe Graphics. The main advantage of the MX350 is the 2 GB VRAM buffer. In our suite of benchmarks, the Inspiron 14 achieves average or slightly above-average results. Moreover, the Dell notebook also offers decent battery runtimes, which could have been a little longer.

In summary, we find the overall package to be quite good. At the end of the day, small weaknesses are just small weaknesses. To learn more about the Dell Inspiron 14 7400, read our extensive review.

I carried out my first IT experiments with a 386-based system and a whole 4 MB RAM. This was followed by work on various PCs and laptops that I maintained and repaired for friends and acquaintances. After training to become a Telecommunications Systems Technician and gaining a few years of experience, I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Industrial Engineering. Currently, I pursue my fascination for IT, technology, and mobile devices by writing reviews and articles for Notebookcheck. I have also worked for Gamestar, Netzwelt, and Golem, among others.

I am a big fan of technology, which is why I try to keep up with it. Among my other passions are literature and writing, and so it should not be surprising to anyone at all that I have a four-year bachelor's degree in philology. However, my interests are not limited just to the world of technology, or, for that matter, the world of literature. I am also interested in people and the stories they have to tell. And more recently, I took an interest in artificial intelligence.
