Dell Inspiron 14 7000

 

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.

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)

 

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...

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.

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
