16 January 2013
  • Summary: The Dell Inspiron 14z is a machine of several surprises. It’s also a very good machine; falling closer to the “budget” side, no doubt, but a good machine nonetheless. Dell may not have intended great things for this Ultrabook, but for what it’s worth, the Inspiron 14z is quite inspirational.
  • Pros: Sleek design, Solid performances, Discrete graphics, Optical drive
  • Cons: Cramped keyboard, Annoying port covers

31 October 2012
  • Excerpt: When the first generation of ultrabooks was around, affordable was not a word that well described them. Now however, things have changed. The second-generation ultrabooks with Intel Ivy Bridge processors have arrived, clearly aimed at specific demographics across multiple price points.

Dell Inspiron 14z review

16 July 2012

Expert Review

19 June 2012
  • Conclusion: At the $899 price point we tested, however, if you're looking for a good balance of performance and style, you'd likely be better off living without the extra 0.7 inch of screen size and opting for a Sony VAIO T Series or spending an extra $100 for Dell's XPS 13.
  • Pros: More configurable than most ultrabooks, Discrete graphics, Built-in optical drive
  • Cons: Thick and heavy for an ultrabook, Mediocre battery life, Port selection could be better for a laptop this size

Review: Dell Inspiron 14z

9 May 2012
  • Pros: Great combination of portability, performance, and value. Decent battery life: About 4 hours with DVD playback.
  • Cons: Input problems all around, from tiny keyboard to jittery touchpad. Cheap port covers on left side just get in the way. Dim screen, with uninspiring 1366 x 768-pixel resolution. Could use another couple of USB ports. Difficulty with switchable graphics system.
