Dell Inspiron 14R-N4010 Laptop

 

It is priced like an entry-level laptop, but looks like a high-end device.

Expert review by:

Dell Inspiron 14R-5437 review: It's no barn burner, but it runs a good long while

 

Here's a solid, utilitarian, all-purpose laptop that favors function over looks. It's not overly swift, but it runs for a whopping 9 hours on a single charge.

Super-long battery life ; Attractive industrial design ; Very good input ergonomics

Mediocre benchmark performance ; Heavy for a 14-inch notebook ; Resolution limited to 1366 by 768

The Dell Inspiron 14R-5437 is a solid, utilitarian, all-purpose laptop that favors function over looks. It's not overly swift but it runs for a whopping 9 hours on a single charge.

Dell Inspiron 14R-5437

 

Ten hours of battery life in a well-equipped, affordable 14-inch desktop replacement laptop. That's the Dell Inspiron 14R-5437 in a nutshell.

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 is a desktop replacement laptop that can go the distance. With a 6-cell removable battery pack and a power sipping fourth-generation Intel Core i3 processor, the Inspiron 14R-5437 has the power to run for almost ten hours....

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 (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 i14R-2265MRB

 

The Dell Inspiron R is this year's newly designed iteration of the Dell Inspiron, with slightly sleeker colors and touches that make it look a bit more like a Studio series (another of Dell's brands) laptop. Our Back-to-School retail roundup features...

Streamlined look, easy-to-use keyboard and touch pad; built-in WiMax antenna; fast Core i5 processor

WiMax may not be of much use, as it's not available in most major cities yet

With Windows 7 Professional and built-in WiMax, the Dell i14R-2265MRB is a retail laptop angling for the professional market, and as such might be a good option for a budget small-business machine.

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.

Dell Inspiron 14R Review

 

The $819 Dell Inspiron 14R is a good choice for students and other consumers looking for strong performance in an attractive, comfortable design. However, if you care about battery life you might want to either opt for a model with integrated graphics...

Sturdy, good-looking design, Comfortable keyboard and touchpad, Speedy performance, Discrete graphics

Short battery life, Lid is fingerprint-prone, Below-average Wi-Fi throughput

Dell Inspiron 14R-1898MRB

 

The 14R-1898MRB's interior mirrors the outside, as the palm rests and the area above the keyboard have the same look. And if you hold the laptop by the palm rest, you'll notice that there's less flexing than that of the Dell 1464. Other design changes...

New Inspiron design. Better battery life with the 6-cell battery. Excellent keyboard and navigating experience. Affordable. 500GB hard drive. Good performer. Optional WiDi

A bit thick and boxy

The Dell Inspiron 14R-1898MRB is an affordable mainstream laptop that comes with a ton of options and a new look to spice things up.

Dell Inspiron 14R-1761MRB

 

Designs don't change as often as components and pricing when it comes to laptops, as altering the aesthetic is more intricate and costly. Dell, for instance, updates its Inspiron line every year or so, and that time has come. The Dell Inspiron...
