Dell Inspiron 14 5000

CNET
12 September 2014
  • Summary: For those in need of an inexpensive thin-and-light laptop for home or school (but not necessarily the thinnest or lightest), the Dell Inspiron 14 5000 series is worth putting on your list despite its imperfections.
  • Pros: 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.
  • Cons: Screen quality is overall disappointing. Configuration options are very limited. Though the keyboard itself is good, there might be too much flex for some.

Dell Inspiron 14 5000 (2014) Review

LAPTOP Magazine
15 July 2014
  • Summary: With a better screen and longer battery life, the Dell Inspiron 14 5000 would be a much stronger contender among 14-inch laptops. We like the attractive design, comfy keyboard and loud speakers, but you're simply not getting enough for your $749.

Dell Inspiron 14 7000

CNET
7 June 2014
  • Summary: 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.
  • Pros: 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.
  • Cons: 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.

techbargains.com
17 April 2014
  • Summary: Much thinner than its previous versions, the Inspiron 14 is a beautifully designed machine. Its silver chassis and chrome edges makes it look like it's a system that costs much more, and the system hums along at a very quiet pace without producing a trace of heat.
  • Pros: Design:, Thin and Light:, Silent/No Heat:, Performance:, Display:
  • Cons: Visual Issues:, Sound:, Battery Life:, Hardware Limits:

  • Conclusion: 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.
  • Pros: Long-running battery, High-resolution display, Sleek aluminum enclosure
  • Cons: Uncomfortably sharp edges on bottom panel, Dull display, Uneven keyboard backlighting
