Review: Dell 14z Ultrabook, affordable portability arrives**


Last month Dell launched their entry level 14Z Ultrabook. We got a chance to spend some time with it here at techAU and now have a detailed review, letting you know if you should throw down your hard...

What Dell have delivered with the 14z is an Ultrabook for the mainstream. Those on the tightest budget can get into the ‘Ultrabook’ market for just $799. I say ‘Ultrabook’ because with an optical drive and a spinning disk this model varies...

Decent for a refurb


Wifi is a little iffy in Linux. Sometimes, it won't detect my network. Most of the time is works with no problems. Its a little inconsistent. Windows 8 runs fine but the tile system is unnecessary for a nontouch screen device. Its like an annoying web...

Nice and sleek looking. Good hardware for the price. Mine actually came with 8gb and an ATi dedicated card. It was either a mistake in spec listing or I just got lucky ; The 32gb mSATA ssd is a nice piece. I installed Linux Mint 15 on it. Runs great ;...

The ATI card is power hungry and gets hot. Its worse under Linux because of bad drivers. If you are using Linux like me, turn off the dedicated card. It'll cut your battery life in a matter of minutes and overheat ; Wifi is a little iffy in Linux but...

Never buy a Dell product again


Have ordered and used 1 Dell Inspiron 620, 2 Dell Inspiron 14z. Will never by any Dell product again. I do not want to live with such a noise from my PC or laptop

Beautiful design for an entry-level laptop ; Newegg has great customer service, they send a replacement right away for my issue

IRST Caching using the mSata SSD is not configured by default. I have to setup it, and it's not easy for non-technical customers ; Hard drive rotating noise (or similar) can be heard from 3ft. I actually got the same issue with my Dell Inspiron 620...

BAD Hard Drive


It's very lightweight, fast as advertised, easy to set up. Love the look and feel overall

Less than 24 hours of ownership, the hard drive fried. Needless to say, I was unimpressed. Dell would not pay to have a new hard drive overnighted, so, I have to wait 2-3 days. But hey ! They're going to call me to see if I received it ; WHAT

great for average user


My initial impression is good the device feels and looks solid. Bottom line is its a no brainer for somene that just needs a laptop to get the job done but also want solid computer that isnt cheap or flimsy feeling. I would highly recomend to college...

Aluminum cover is nice very clean look ; very good value you really get a lot for your money ; comes with adobe photo shop preinstalled elements 9 ; clean interface great keyboard very comfortable

dell bloatware some of it is use full like the snip it app but mostly annoying easy to remove though ; finger prints get on the cover easily and are hard to get off might not go well if your ocd ; integrated graphics not optimal for gaming but to be...
