Dell Inspiron 14 5000 Series review: A stylish thin-and-light for the budget-minded with impressive battery life


Dell's current Inspiron lineup -- regardless of series -- has been very consistent at offering above average looks and features for what you're paying. There may be a disappointing spec here and there, but there's typically some other feature to...

The Dell Inspiron 14 5000 series is a bit more attractive than your average mainstream laptop. It's just thin and light enough to make short trips to the coffee shop or around campus manageable.
