Summary: The Dell Inspiron 14 5000 Series notebook PC is an adequate computer but it’s expensive when you consider the $700 price tag. This notebook has enough muscle to get the job done, but things like poor Wi-Fi reception really don’t help matters.

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.

Summary: Among value-priced 14-inch notebooks, the $599 Inspiron 14 is a strong choice. It sports a classy design and backs up its handsome looks with a fair amount of power and blaring speakers. We much prefer the keyboard on the ThinkPad Edge 14, which also lasts longer on a charge.
