  • 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. Plus, if you need that optical drive, extra storage space, and 14-inch screen, Samsung's Series 5 Ultra will deliver those features in a lighter, more stylish package (with better battery life in our testing,...
  • 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

  • Conclusion: There are better all-rounders than the Dell Inspiron 14z, then, but it's still worth a look if all you want to do is browse the web, or have a laptop to work on, and place comfort and quality above features.
  • Pros: As the name suggests, the Dell Inspiron 14z gets a 14-inch screen. It does the job, but there's certainly nothing special about it – the 1366 x 768 pixel resolution is average at best, and the glossy finish can be frustrating when you're trying to work on a train or in direct sunshine. Dell has used aluminium for parts of the chassis, along with plastic, offering higher quality than most budget laptops. The high quality runs through the keyboard, which is well shaped,...
  • Cons: Unfortunately, Dell hasn't included a dedicated graphics card on the Dell Inspiron 14z, so you won't be able to take on the latest games, or carry out intensive 3D tasks. The Dell Inspiron 14z also proved annoyingly noisy when carrying out multiple tasks, with the fans kicking in when watching movies.

21 November 2011
  • Excerpt: Dell has always been a pretty consistent name when it comes to the consumer computing end of the spectrum. They may not necessarily have the most powerful machines or the sexiest products, but they’ve done a good job at keeping the prices reasonable while still offering you a decent package.

Trusted Reviews
18 January 2013
  • Summary: The cheaper, chunkier cousin to the XPS 14z offers a brushed aluminium lid in two different colours and some decent specs without breaking the bank. But is it any good?
  • Pros: Decent value for the specs, Brushed metal lid and keyboard surround, Nice typing experience, Good connectivity
  • Cons: Mediocre screen, Connections awkwardly recessed, Stiff touchpad buttons, Somewhat noisy under load

  • Conclusion: Unter dem Strich bietet Dell mit dem Inspiron 14z einen leistungsstarken Alltagsbegleiter. Die Anwendungsleistung des Intel Core i5 bewältigt anfallende Aufgaben mühelos. Untergebracht wird die Hardware in einem optisch stilvollen, flachen und zugleich stabilen Aluminiumchassis. Auch die Anschlussvielfalt des 14 Zollers überzeugt. Mit geringem Gewicht und langen Akkulaufzeiten ist das Dell äußerst mobil.
  • Pros: sehr gute Anwendungsleistung, stolze Verarbeitung, solide Ausleuchtung des Displays, lange Akkulaufzeiten, geringes Gewicht, stimmige Eingabegeräte
  • Cons: langsame Festplatte, hohe Temperaturen unter Last, Display: Luminanz / Kontrast
