Reviews for the Dell Inspiron 14R-1181MRB
Source: PC Mag Archive.org version
Stylish though the Dell Inspiron 14R-1181MRB may be, it has a lot of trouble living up to its appearance. It's outclassed by every other similarly priced laptop we've looked recently at in terms of performance, right on down from the Editors' Choice Asus U41JF-A1. Laptops like the Asus U41JF-A1 and the Samsung QX410-J01 have slightly higher prices, respectively, but unless your needs really don't go beyond the basics, they will give you a lot more capabilities for your coin.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
380M: The Core i3-380M is a fast clocked Core i3. The TurboBoost, AES, VTd, and Trusted Execution functions are deactivated in the i3-series. Therefore, it always clocks with max. 2.53 GHz (of course Speedstep is included). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
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.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
