Reviews for the Dell Inspiron 14 Plus 7440

85.2% Dell Inspiron 14 Plus 7440 laptop review: Dropping GeForce RTX for integrated Intel Arc | Notebookcheck
The latest Inspiron 14 Plus ships with the latest Intel Core Ultra 7 CPU and a high resolution IPS display for a decent price. However, discrete GPU options have been removed which puts all the pressure on integrated Arc 8 to do the heavy lifting.
80% Dell Inspiron 14 Plus (7440) review: a budget battery life champ
Source: Laptop Media English
The Inspiron 14 Plus is a budget-friendly powerhouse of a machine, smashing through most of our performance benchmarks with ease. It has an impressive 15 hour battery life, powerful speakers, enough ports to power all of your accessories without a dongle, and a funky ice blue chassis. This may be a standard consumer laptop designed to fit into the crowd in a professional environment, but it can hold up to demanding workloads with ease and last for a full day and maybe even through overtime hours. The major drawbacks are the display that could be brighter and more colorful, the solitary USB-C port, and the subpar webcam. You can easily work around the webcam and port issues, which just leaves the display. While it's far from our most colorful or brightest display, the Inspiron 14 Plus is not a laptop for creative professionals, and it can easily stand up to the demands of a corporate environment.

This Dell laptop alleviated my long work days with a clever design feature
Source: Zdnet.com English
While the Dell Inspiron 14 Plus 7440 lacks the bells and whistles seen on higher-end models, it excels at being a reliable machine with some nice touches. The laptop offers on-the-go professionals a hi-res screen, decent battery life, and solid performance. Yes, the poor placement of the heat vents may disappoint some, but they're worth putting up with considering what you're getting in return. Prices for the model start at a very reasonable $1,000, a solid deal for what you're getting here. You can opt for a 2.8K display and 32GB of RAM which bumps the cost up to $1,200.

90% Dell Inspiron 14 Plus (2024) review: This is what a well-rounded machine looks like
Source: PC World English
If Dell had added another heat pipe and used the extra rear grille as an actual exhaust port to keep the CPU thermals in check, this probably would have been the rise of a new king of everyday PCs. Even without that concession, the Dell Inspiron 14 Plus is a remarkably well rounded system. In just about every category, it’s decent at worst. And in most departments, it’s better than the competition. It may not be as pretty as a ZenBook or Pavilion Plus, but it’s faster and lasts longer. And even if it’s no ThinkPad or XPS, it’s so much cheaper. Even with the Acer Swift Go 14 offering a lot of the same aspects, I’d never trade the Dell Inspiron 14 Plus’s keyboard for one from Acer. The fact that you can get a system this well rounded for $1,000 (and I’ve even seen it for $850 already) is a huge boon for PC shoppers looking for a no-nonsense, machine that’s all together excellent.

80% Dell Inspiron 14 Plus 7440 Review: Long-Running, All-Metal Mainstream Laptop
Source: CNet English
The Dell Inspiron 14 Plus 7440 is a mainstream laptop between Dell's lower-end Inspiron (non-Plus) line and the premium XPS series. The all-aluminum chassis is a step up from the plastic shells on the Inspiron line, but the overall design isn't as sleek and modern as an XPS. It also lacks the GPU upgrades offered on the XPS line, but the Intel Arc graphics, courtesy of the Core Ultra chip, are more capable than Intel's previous integrated graphics processor. The 2.2K-resolution IPS display is a bit sharper than the typical 14-inch full HD laptop display, but superior OLED panels on offer in the XPS line remain out of reach for the Inspiron 14 Plus. The 14-inch, 16:10 display makes the Inspiron 14 Plus a versatile machine, giving you enough screen space to be productive without feeling too cramped while also being compact enough for daily travel, even if it's a tad heavy for its class.

60% Dell’s Inspiron 14 Plus review: one hand tied behind its back
Source: Digital Trends English
If I were reviewing the Inspiron 14 Plus a couple of years ago, I could easily recommend it. It’s well-built, very fast, and it has good battery life. What’s not to like? At $1,000, it’s a very good midrange laptop by most standards. However, it’s competing with laptops like the Zenbook 14 Q425, which boasts the same qualities, has even better battery life, and costs around the same price but uses a superior OLED display. The Inspiron also lacks an additional Thunderbolt 4 port, and its keyboard and touchpad aren’t the best. I suggest that you consider some other midrange laptops instead.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.

The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.
