Dell Inspiron 14 7000 Series Review

 

The Dell Inspiron 14 7000 Series is a well-rounded, middle-of-the-road Ultrabook that does fairly well in multiple categories. Read our full review to find out more.

Good 1080p touchscreen display ; Durable yet portable ; Well-rounded device ; Great battery life

Slow boot and launch times ; Poor keyboard and mouse feel ; No discrete graphics

The Dell Inspiron 14 7000 series is a decent machine, with decent portability, for a decent price. It doesn’t excel in any particular area, but also doesn’t fall short when compared to the competition in this segment. This laptop doesn’t stand out with...

Dell Inspiron 14 7000 Series (2014) review: Very good looks and value, not a lot of choice

 

Dell unveiled the Inspiron 14 7000 series laptop (and the 15 and 17 7000 series) in September of last year, billing it as its thinnest and strongest Inspiron to date.

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.

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 Series review: Upscale looks at a reasonable price

 

When it comes to laptops -- and really many other products -- there are people who care more about value and getting the job done than looks and bells and whistles, and vice versa. The Dell Inspiron 14 7000 Series aims to satisfy both groups and, for...

Dell Inspiron 14 7000 Series review

 

Dell's Inspiron 14 7000 Series is a slim, aluminum laptop with a nice 1080p touchscreen and solid battery life. We just wish it included an SSD.

With its nice full-HD screen and slim, solid aluminum shell, Dell’s Inspiron 14 7000 Series looks much nicer than many laptops that cost more than its $849 starting price. It’s certainly a more premium-looking device than the similarly sized Lenovo...

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

Dell Inspiron 14 7000 Review and Ratings

 

Despite attractions such as a slim profile and a 1080p touch screen, the Dell Inspiron 14 7000 laptop is too rough around the edges—literally—to merit a recommendation.

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

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

It may have started slow, but the 7000 finished our labs testing strong, running for nearly nine hours in our grueling battery rundown test. That's extra impressive for a system that employs a small 4-cell (58WHr) battery and speaks volumes about the...

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

Dell Inspiron 14 7000 Series Review: Slick and Stylish

 

Looks good Decent CPU and graphics performance Sturdy and lightweight Good value for money

Typing can be uncomfortable Average battery life Limited connectivity and expandability

We tested the Core i5 version of the Inspiron 14 7000 Series, which is surprisingly not as expensive as many of the laptops sold as ultrabooks today. It's very thin, relatively light, and decently powerful. Dell obviously made some choices with the...
