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. Although the 14-inch touch screen was a nice feature, notebooks with smaller, higher resolution displays can out perform it and provide better mobility.
Yes, smaller convertible systems like the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 or the Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga are more expensive, but they offer noticeably better performance and better mobility if you can scrape together a little extra cash.
On the other hand, the Dell Inspiron 14 is good enough for people who just need to do the basics. For advanced tasks, higher-end specs, and better performance, shoppers should look elsewhere.
- Long battery life
- Heat dissipates well
- Display needs more clarity and richer colors
