Dell Inspiron 14 Plus 7420 laptop review: For power users on a budget

14-inch rapid multi-tasker. The Inspiron 14 Plus packs a lot of power for a 14-inch laptop with its 12th gen Core-H CPU and GeForce RTX graphics. It's a good solution for users who want something more powerful than a standard Ultrabook yet cheaper than an Asus Zephyrus G14 or Razer Blade 14.

Dell has introduced three separate 14-inch Inspiron 14 7420 models for 2022: the standard Inspiron 14 7420, Inspiron 14 7420 2-in-1, and Inspiron 14 7420 Plus. This review focuses on the Plus model which carries much faster Core H-series processors and discrete Nvidia GeForce RTX graphics designed for power users dissatisfied with the usual Core-U series Ultrabooks.

Our specific review unit comes with the Alder Lake-H Core i7-12700H CPU and GeForce RTX 3050 GPU for approximately $1400 USD retail. Other SKUs with the Core i5-12500H, RTX 3050 Ti or integrated graphics, and smaller 54 Wh battery are planned, but all configurations come with the same 2.2K 2240 x 1400 resolution panel.

Competitors include other high-performance 14-inch laptops like the Asus VivoBook Pro 14, HP Pavilion 14 Plus, Schenker Vision 14HP Envy 14, or the Lenovo IdeaPad 5 Pro 14. The Razer Blade 14 and Asus Zephyrus G14 can also be considered alternatives, but they are significantly more expensive.

Case — A Miniature Inspiron 16 7620

The chassis can be best described as a smaller version of the Inspiron 16 7620 Plus since they both share the same visual design language. The materials used for the metal chassis and layer of Mylar over the clickpad and palm rests are similar to the larger Inspiron as a result. It's a smooth matte feel from top to bottom that almost mimics the smooth metal outer lid of an XPS 15.

The weakest aspect of the skeleton is perhaps the lid as it twists quite readily. Minor creaking is audible when twisting the base and applying pressure on the keyboard center will slightly warp its surface as well. Though this model retails for almost as much as a Dell XPS 15, don't expect it to be built as strongly as one.

One might expect the Inspiron 14 Plus 7620 to be larger and heavier than the Inspiron 14 7620 2-in-1, but that's not really the case. Its footprint is identical to the 2-in-1 version while being just a hair thicker and heavier despite the significantly more powerful hardware inside. Nonetheless, it's still heavier and larger than most other 14-inch laptops like the HP Envy 14, Asus Zenbook 14X, or Schenker Vision 14 all of which also carry discrete Nvidia graphics.

Connectivity — Thunderbolt 4 Support

Port options are identical to the Inspiron 16 Plus 7620 albeit the full-size SD reader has been swapped for a smaller microSD one. We appreciate the support for Thunderbolt 4 as neither the competing HP Pavilion Plus 14 nor Asus Vivobook Pro 14 OLED support Thunderbolt even though they have USB-C ports.

SD Card Reader

Transfer rates from the integrated spring-loaded MicroSD reader are slow much like what we observed on the Inspiron 14 7420 2-in-1. Moving 1 GB of pictures from our UHS-II test card to desktop takes about 45 seconds.

Maintenance

The bottom panel pops off fairly easily with a Philips screwdriver and a sharp plastic edge. Once inside, users can service the battery, 1x M.2 2280 storage slot, 1x DDR5 SODIMM slot, and M.2 WLAN module. Note that 8 GB of RAM comes soldered on all SKUs meaning users can add just a single module for a maximum RAM capacity of 40 GB.

Accessories and Warranty

There are no extras in the box other than the AC adapter and paperwork. The usual one-year limited warranty applies if purchased in the US.

Input Devices — Been Here, Seen That

Keyboard and Touchpad

The typing experience is the same as on the Inspiron 16 Plus 7620Inspiron 16 7620 2-in-1, or Inspiron 14 7420 2-in-1 as all four models share the same keyboard keys and Mylar clickpad. Even the primary and secondary key symbols and size of the clickpad (11.5 x 8 cm) are identical between the models regardless of any screen size differences. In short, the keys have adequate feedback and moderate clatter save for the Space key which feels a bit too shallow. Similarly, the clickpad surface works reliably for standard cursor control while its integrated keys are too soft and spongy when dragging and dropping.

Display — Full sRGB Coverage and 60 Hz

While other 14-inch laptops typically aim for 1200p, 1800p, or 2160p native resolutions, the Inspiron 14 Plus 7420 come standard with a relatively uncommon 2.2K or 2240 x 1400 panel instead. Core attributes are otherwise solid including the full sRGB coverage, ~1000:1 contrast ratio, and decent response times for its size class. It's a bummer that OLED or glossy options aren't available to boost colors or sharpness even further.

The display is not calibrated at factory and so its colors are not as accurate as they could be. Color temperature in particular is too warm at around 6000 compared to the 6500 target of the sRGB standard. After a proper calibration with our X-Rite colorimeter, average grayscale and color DeltaE values would improve from 3.6 and 2.23 to just 0.8 and 0.63, respectively. We recommend an end-user calibration to fully exploit the 100 percent sRGB coverage of the panel.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
22.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 12 ms rise
↘ 10.8 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.4 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 40 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (22.7 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
32.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 16 ms rise
↘ 16.8 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.25 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 32 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (35.9 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 19601 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Outdoor visibility is underwhelming as the display averages only 300 nits at its maximum setting. You'll want to work under shade whenever possible if outdoors or the screen becomes washed out under brighter ambient lighting. The MSI Summit E14 carries a significantly brighter screen while still offering discrete GPU options in comparison.

Performance — Supercharged 14-incher

 
 

Testing Conditions

We set our unit Ultra Performance mode via the My Dell software prior to running any benchmarks below. It's recommended that owners become familiar with My Dell as it serves as a portal to warranty support, battery charging behavior, system performance, and more as shown by the screenshots below.

Standard Optimus is supported for switching between the integrated and discrete GeForce RTX 3050 GPUs. Advanced Optimus, MUX, and WhisperMode are not supported.

Processor

CPU performance can be analyzed from a glass half full or glass half empty perspective. From the pessimistic point of view, the 45 W Core i7-12700H in the Dell is somewhat disappointing as its multi-thread performance is about 10 percent slower than other laptops equipped with the same processor. From the optimistic point of view, the Dell is significantly faster than most other 14-inch laptops where 15 W, 25 W, or 35 W CPUs are more common. This is one of the smaller laptops you can get with the Core i7-12700H, but the flip side is that its Turbo Boost performance is subsequently more limited when compared to larger laptops with the same processor option. After all, the Core i7-12700H is frequently found on full-fledged gaming laptops as well. The 16-inch Lenovo Legion Slim 7 with the same CPU, for example, offers 30 percent faster performance than our Inspiron 14 Plus.

The limited Turbo Boost performance of our CPU can be demonstrated by running CineBench R15 xT in a loop. As shown by the graph below, our initial score of 2410 points would dip by 21 percent by the third or fourth loop to represent a notable performance drop.

Storage Devices — Heat Spreader Included

Our unit ships with a 512 GB SK Hynix BC711 PCIe3 NVMe SSD offering sequential read rates of up to 3600 MB/s. The drive would exhibit no performance throttling issues when running DiskSpd in a loop as it comes with its own heat spreader pre-installed. In comparison, most other OEMs do not include one with their budget or even midrange laptop models. It would have been nice to see faster PCIe4 options on the Inspiron 14 Plus 7420, however.
