Dell Inspiron 14R-N4110 Laptop Review

 

Budget performance. Dell's affordable Inspiron family has always been popular with everyday users, but does this 2011 14-inch Inspiron have the bang for the buck needed to continue the lineup's appeal?

2x USB 3.0, Intuitive port placement, Decent build quality and performance, WiMAX configuration option, Despite the plastic case, the corners and edges feel refined and stiff. The connectivity selection is also commendable with multiple USB 3.0 ports...

Colors only available with surcharge, System noise under moderate/heavy use, Fingerprint magnet, No easy HDD/CPU access, The ability to swap case lids may be an appealing idea in theory, but in practice the case quality seems to have suffered as a...

Dell Inspiron 14R-5437

 

The Dell Inspiron 14R-5437 offers ten hours of battery life in an affordable 14-inch desktop replacement laptop.

Nice Price. Almost 10 hours battery life. Removable battery. Optical drive. Good friction on screen hinges (no screen bounce).

Low 1,366 by 768 resolution screen. USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports are same color. Non-backlit keyboard.

The Dell Inspiron 14R-5437 makes sense when you're using it to replace an older laptop or desktop PC. It's got the power and features to keep most entry-level users happy, with the added benefit of close to ten hours of battery life on a replaceable...

Dell Inspiron 14R (2013) Review

 

The Dell Inspiron 14R offers nearly 9 hours of battery life and a touch-screen display, but it's not the sleekest laptop in its price range.

Excellent battery life; Runs cool; Aluminum lid and deck

Somewhat bulky and heavy for 14-incher; Shallow keyboard feedback

The Dell Inspiron 14R offers nearly 9 hours of battery life and a touch-screen display, but it's not the sleekest laptop in its price range.

Dell Inspiron 14R (I14RN-1364PBL)

 

Very little about the Dell Inspiron 14R (I14RN-1364PBL) helps it stand out in the crowd, in either a good or a bad way.

Equipped with decent hardware. Includes two USB 3.0 ports.

Unremarkable productivity performance, battery life. Some bloatware.

Dell Inspiron 14R-7616DBK

 

Equipped with a second-generation Intel Core-i3 processor, the Dell Inspiron i14RN4110-7616DBK ($649.99 list at Best Buy) offers some nice connectivity and wireless features and a sizable hard drive at a reasonable price. However, its performance is...

Solid feature set. Second generation Core i3 CPU. Large hard drive

Spongy keyboard. Small touchpad. Lackluster performance

The Dell Inspiron i14RN4110-7616DBK offers the latest Core-13 technology and has a good selection of wireless options and I/O ports, but its performance is only so-so.

Dell Inspiron 14R-1296PBL

 

The Dell Inspiron R14-1296PBL is an attractive 14-inch notebook with a strong wireless feature set, but its performance is lacking.

Stylish design. Lots of wireless options. Large hard drive.

Sluggish performance. Integrated graphics. Low battery life.

Dell Inspiron 14R (Pentium)

 

This attractive budget notebook offers impressive sound and good enough performance for everyday computing.

The Dell Inspiron 14R proves that Intel's Pentium processor is still powerful enough for those who need a basic notebook for surfing the web, watching videos, and working on Excel or Word documents. Though it scored low on some benchmarks, this 14-inch...

Dell Inspiron 14R-1181MRB

 

Good looks notwithstanding, the Dell Inspiron 14R-1181MRB won't satisfy you unless you have very general needs.

Attractive design. Decent-size hard drive.

Overall slow performance. Low battery life.

Dell Inspiron 14R-1440PBL

 

The Dell Inspiron 14R-1440PBL laptop did not perform as well as systems that cost about the same or less, thanks to a sluggish Pentium processor.

Vibrant design. Excellent user experience. 500GB hard drive is spacious.

Slow performance scores. Weak battery life scores. Overpriced.

Dell Inspiron 14R (model N4010)

 

Just in time for the back-to-school season, Dell has released its new R series of Inspiron all-purpose laptops. Though the stylish silver accents are the first thing you'll notice, the Inspiron R series is more than just a cosmetic upgrade. The...

Discrete graphics and premium sound ; Good keyboard and touchpad

Fan gets noisy in graphics-heavy games ; No switchable graphics means poor battery life

Dell has assembled a slick update to the Inspiron line that, despite a few shortcomings, will let students and home users do anything they need to without breaking the bank.
