Deal | Dell Inspiron 14 with Core i7-1260p becomes a potential bargain after recording a massive 42% off at Dell's official store
With an average rating of 4.1/5 stars after more than 2300 reviews, the Dell Inspiron 14 seems like a good pick for folks looking to buy a decently powerful 14-inch laptop that doesn’t break the bank. If you are in such a camp, Dell now has the Inspiron 14 for only US$599.99 instead of the US$1,029.99 list price, representing savings of US$430 (via slickdeals).
When it comes to the hardware, the Dell Inspiron 14 on offer packs a 12th gen Core i7-1260p processor, 16 GB of expandable DDR4-3200 memory, 512 GB of replaceable SSD storage, and a 14-inch 2240x1400 resolution display with an advertised 300 nits of brightness. Moreover, the laptop rocks Wi-Fi 6E, a backlit keyboard, and a 54 Wh battery.
Thanks to the Core i7-1260p with 4 P-cores and 8 E-cores, the Inspiron 14 is bound to be a speedy machine. In our tests, the CPU is on par with the 8-core Apple M1 Pro and only 13% behind the latest Core i7-1360p in the Cinebench R23 Multi-Core benchmark. The single-core performance of the Core i7-1260p is also commendable as the CPU scored 1,695 points in Cinebench R23 Single-Core which is only 7% behind the 13th-gen Core i7-1360p and is only 3% less than the much more power-hungry Core i7-13700H. In other words, the Dell Inspiron 14 should be able to handle everything except the most demanding of tasks.
Put simply, if you need a budget laptop with fast performance, the Dell Inspiron 14 looks like a good machine to consider.
