Dell Inspiron 14 (5447)

 

The Dell Inspiron 14 (5447) is a solid desktop-replacement laptop with respectable performance and minor drawbacks, like quiet speakers.

Brushed-aluminum lid. Touch-screen display. 1TB hard drive. Backlit keyboard

Low-resolution display. Quiet speakers. No Gigabit Ethernet

The Dell Inspiron 14 (5447) ($699.99 as tested) is a desktop-replacement laptop with a solid mix of capability and features. It's priced for affordability, but small touches, like a brushed aluminum lid and backlit keyboard make for a nice laptop that...

Dell Inspiron 14 7000

 

That statement is probably more impressive to you if the Inspiron name conjures up images of thick, plastic, somewhat generic-looking laptops that "got the job done" but not much else.

The Dell Inspiron 14 7000 series provides very good performance and nearly 8 hours of battery life in an attractive, thin aluminum body. It's well-priced for what you're getting, particularly the highest-end configuration.

The $800 entry version does not have a full-HD screen and it will cost you $200 more to get a configuration that does. It has a lean port and connection assortment and older 802.11n Wi-Fi instead of 802.11ac.

While the entry model is less of a bargain than it used to be and configurations are limited, the thin, aluminum-clad Dell Inspiron 14 7000 remains an attractive option for its looks, performance, and price.

This laptop's performance doesn't measure up to its gorgeous looks.

Attractive industrial design ; Bright, responsive high-res touchscreen

Mediocre benchmark performance ; Mechanical hard drive ; Flimsy, unevenly backlit keyboard

Dell's Inspiron 14 7000 series notebooks perform much less impressively than they look.

Dell Inspiron 14 7000 Touch ( 2013)

 

Starting at about $850, this mainstream thin-and-light ditches the plastic chassis of past lower-end Inspirons for an aluminum shell and a slimmer build. With that you get upscale features like a 1080p touch screen covered with Gorilla Glass and a...

The Dell Inspiron 14 7000 Series offers mainstream laptop buyers a more stylish option than lower-end Inspirons. It's well-priced for its design and configuration, which includes an aluminum body that's barely more than half an inch thick, a 1080p...

Dell offers just two hardware configurations and no option with a hybrid or solid-state drive. Battery life is decent, but not quite the nearly 9 hours Dell quotes.

Though its components and performance are somewhat average for its price, the Dell Inspiron 14 7000 Series' aluminum chassis, backlit keyboard, and 1080p touch screen give it a more premium feel.

Dell Inspiron 14 7000

 

The Dell Inspiron 14 7000 is a striking aluminum notebook with a colorful touch screen and good battery life.

Attractive and thin aluminum design; Good battery life; Colorful and responsive touch screen; Accurate touchpad

Keyboard somewhat mushy with uneven backlighting; Below-average display brightness; Not fastest in its class

With the $849 Inspiron 14 7000, Dell has created an attractive and long-lasting notebook for a reasonable price. This laptop certainly delivers on the aesthetics front, thanks to its slim aluminum chassis. We also appreciate the responsive and colorful...

Long-running battery, High-resolution display, Sleek aluminum enclosure

Uncomfortably sharp edges on bottom panel, Dull display, Uneven keyboard backlighting

Though it doesn't offer quite the battery life or as thin an aluminum enclosure, the Lenovo IdeaPad U430 Touch is the more well-rounded of the two 14-inch contenders. It remains our Editors' Choice and Top 100 Products of 2013 pick.

Review: Dell Inspiron 14 7000

 

Dell Inspiron 14 7000 is one of the most beautiful laptops we've ever seen. It is a forged aluminium design that's “accented with diamond-cut bevelled edges”, as claimed by Dell. It flaunts a backlit keyboard and comes with an optional edge-to-edge...

Great Looks, Sleek aluminum enclosure, Good specifications, Responsive touch screen, Good battery backup, Light, Good speakers (for a laptop), Good implementation of sound enhancement through software

Viewing angles are mediocre, Screen not as bright, Expensive for such a screen

Great laptop for the price!

 

This laptop is awesome! Runs fast! Perfect size. Touch screen is fantastic. I am very picky about laptops and I would highly recommend this one. I don't care for Mac operating system but I like the way they look. I was hoping this would look like a Mac...

Okay for this price level

 

Not very power considering the price, but okay for web browsing and light tasks. Something wrong with the charging unit. Maybe should try another laptop brand...
