Expert Review

CHIP
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

Hardware.Info
6 November 2012
  • Excerpt: If you're looking for a laptop that has all the connectors and a DVD burner, you don't have that many options these days. Many Ultrabooks don't have a DVD burner, but that's not the case with the Dell Inspirion 14z.

Review: Dell Inspiron 14z

Wired
16 July 2012
  • Excerpt: Dell’s Inspiron gets a big makeover this year, evolving (at last) into a sleek and modern-looking laptop while maintaining a very low price. Marketed as an ultrabook, the new Inspiron 14z may surprise you at first since it’s a 14-inch model instead of the usual 13.3.
  • 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.

Dell Inspiron 14z (Summer 2012)

PC Magazine
22 June 2012
  • Conclusion: The Dell Inspiron 14z (Summer 2012) ultrabook is built for speed. Unfortunately, it sacrifices battery life for raw multimedia and 3D power, which is costly in the long run.
  • Pros: Excellent 3D performance for an ultrabook. HDMI-out port. Third-generation Intel Core i5 processor. Discrete graphics. Full-size Ethernet port. Skullcandy-branded audio.
  • Cons: Lags competitors in battery life. Not backlit keyboard. Relatively heavy. Some bloatware.

Dell Inspiron 14z Review

Digitaltrends
28 February 2012
  • Excerpt: It’s easy to forget that most people who buy new laptops buy inexpensive ones. Pay attention the next time you visit the house of a technically un-inclined friend — or even visit a coffee shop — and you’ll see plenty of Dell Inspirons, HP Pavilions and Lenovo IdeaPads.

Dell Inspiron 14z Notebook Review: A Portable Workhorse

PC Perspective
8 December 2011
  • Excerpt: When I think of inexpensive workhorse laptops, Inspiron is one of the first names that comes to mind. This may partially be because HP remains oddly committed to a strange number-based naming scheme that’s as easy to remember as my second cousin’s birthday, but it’s also because the Inspiron is as...
