Dell Inspiron 14 review: If you're looking for a reliable device with good display quality, battery life & performance, this is a good investment

HIGHLIGHT: Attractive looks, reliable performance and good battery life


The DellInspiron 14 5000 series 2-in-1 laptops look like a no-nonsense workhorse built to take your office workload. But these machines are also made to provide the ultimate flexibility for work, play and entertainment.

The model we used is the Dell Inspiron 5406 2-in-1 with 11th-gen Intel Core i5-1135G7 processor, 8GB of RAM, 512 GB SSD, Windows 10 Home, 14-inch Full HD touch display and NVIDIA GeForce MX330 graphics card.

For this price, the hardware specifications seem to just fit the bill for daily productivity needs. But when you turn the laptop360-degrees to convert it into a huge Windows tablet, it feels that there’s more value in buying it. Of course, carrying around a tablet that weighs over 1kg makes no sense. But thanks to the touch display and pen support, you can fold it like a notebook and use the touch pen to scribble presentations.

There’s a 14-inch Full HD LED-backlit touch display that offers good clarity and viewing angles.

You will not have to worry about the display qual-ity apart from the fact that it’s quite reflective under direct sunlight or too much light. The device easily delivers a battery life of 8 hours when used continuously and Dell claims that you can fast-charge the battery to 80% in an hour.

The 11th-gen Intel Core i5-1135G7 processor with 8GB of RAM does a decent job in handling day-to-day office work. You won't face any lags or performance issues as such. It is quite a smooth performer with a praise-worthy trackpad and chiclet backlit keyboard. It’s fun to use the device for work with minimal glitches. And, yes, you also get a finger-print scanner integrated with the power button.

The laptop responds well to casual gaming and entertainment needs. But the audio levels could have been better. The device is quite sturdy and weighs a little less than 1.5kg. The design looks simple yet attractive.

Connectivity options are ample and ports include HDMI, two USB 3.2, one Type-C with support for power and video, audio combo jack and SD card reader. The laptop comes in various configurations and you can choose one that suits your needs.

If you are someone looking for a reliable device to work from home with good display quality, battery life and performance, the Dell Inspiron 14 5000 2-in-1 is a good investment. Not to forget, this device can also cater to your entertainment needs and literally bend according to your need.

Dell Inspiron 14 5000 review: Too cheap for its own good?

MSRP $580.00

“The Dell Inspiron 14 5000 is a cheap laptop that feels and performs like one.”

Pros

  • Decent productivity performance
  • Touchpad works reliably
  • Affordable
  • Good expandability

Cons

  • Poor build quality
  • Battery life is awful
  • Clunky design

Budget laptops are experiencing a renaissance. Recent models have been sleeker, faster, and longer lasting than ever — in some cases, rivaling premium laptops.

If you need some examples, just check out laptops like the Lenovo Yoga C640, the Lenovo Flex 5 14, and the Acer Swift 3 with Ryzen. From performance to design, it’s hard to overstate just how good these laptops have gotten.

I took a look at Dell’s Inspiron 14 5000 to see if it keeps up the trend. My review unit came equipped with an Intel 10th-generation Core i5-1035G1 CPU, 8GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive (SSD), and a 14-inch 1080p display. That configuration of the Inspiron 14 5000 retails for $650, but it’s on sale right now for $580.

That’s a mighty attractive price, but can the Inspiron 14 5000 clear the high bar set by other recent budget laptops?

Design

Sometimes, a laptop is made of plastic but doesn’t feel like it. It’s plenty rigid and exudes a quality feel — the Lenovo Flex 5 14 is a prime example (yes, I’ll mention that laptop throughout this review). Then, there’s the Inspiron 14 5000, a plastic laptop that looks and feels like one.

The lid, keyboard deck, and chassis bottom all have way too much flexing and bending going on. A year ago I might have written that off due to the price. Today, the Inspiron just feels cheap. Even opening the hinge gave the impression of cheapness — the hinge is quite stiff, and you need to wrangle it open with two hands. And yet, the screen still wobbled while using it.

The Inspiron 14 5000 resembles a lot of laptops in this price range.

The Inspiron 14 5000 is also pretty chunky, at 0.83 inches thick and weighing 3.63 pounds. Those measurements are pretty close to the Flex 5 14’s 0.82 inches and 3.3 pounds. However, the Flex 5 14 always felt like it had the build quality to justify the extra bulk. The Inspiron 14 5000, on the other hand, just feels like an old-school budget laptop that’s too large just because the engineering dollars weren’t spent to slim it down.

Acer’s Ryzen-based Swift 3, another 14-inch clamshell laptop, comes in at just 0.63 inches and 2.65 pounds, and it costs just $650. If there really is a new wave of higher quality budget laptops on the way, the Dell doesn’t fit in.

The Inspiron 14 5000 resembles a lot of laptops in this price range. It sports a silverish chassis, with a few chrome-colored accents here and there. The dark-colored bezels don’t add to the look, and while they’re thin enough on the sides, the massive chin is unsightly.

Once again, the Inspiron 14 5000 comes across like an old-school budget laptop and not one of the newer crop of machines that, in this case, look like they should cost more money. The Lenovo Yoga C640 and Flex 5 14 are both examples of better-designed budget machines.

Expandability is one advantage the Inspiron 14 5000 has over its competitors.

Expandability is one advantage the Inspiron 14 5000 has over its competitors. You can configure two drives, up to a 2TB hard disk drive (HDD) and up to a 512GB SSD at the same time. That’s a benefit for anyone who has a lot of files to carry around.

Dell also took advantage of the larger chassis to equip quite a few ports. There are two USB-A 3.1 Gen 1 ports, a USB-A 2.0 port, a full-size HDMI port, an Ethernet drop-jaw connector, and a full-size SD card reader. If you opt for the configuration with a discrete GPU, then you also get a USB-C 3.1 port.

Overall, while it lacks Thunderbolt 3, that’s an impressive collection of ports. Wireless connectivity is Wi-Fi 5 and Bluetooth 5.0.

Performance

The Inspiron 14 5000 uses an Intel 1oth-gen Core i5-1035G1 CPU, a midrange processor in the Core line that promises solid quad-core performance. That’s what the Inspiron delivered — good performance that lives up to the CPU but nothing that stands out. The challenge for Dell is that two of the other competitors we’ve mentioned, the Flex 5 14 and the Swift 3, use AMD’s Ryzen 4000 processors that make mincemeat of Intel’s offering at this price.

In Geekbench 5, the Inspiron scored 1,169 in the single-core test and 3,197 in the multi-core test. That compares to another laptop with the same CPU, the Acer Spin 3, that scored 1,215 and 3,615, respectively. But that’s not the real story, as the Flex 5 14 hit 1,096 and 4,543 and the Swift 3 hit 1,120 and 4,831. Clearly, the AMD chips can leverage their extra cores for significantly better performance, and at the same basic price.

The same held true in our more real-world Handbrake test that converts a 420MB file to H.265. Here, the Inspiron took just over 4.6 minutes to complete the test compared to the Spin 3 at just over four minutes, meaning that the Inspiron fell behind even its most direct competitor. The Flex 5 14 took just 2.7 minutes and the Swift 3 finished in 2.5 minutes, demonstrating just how much faster the AMD processors are in demanding tasks.

Don’t get me wrong — the Inspiron 14 5000 gets the job done in productivity tasks, web browsing, media consumption, and the like. But it faces some stiff competition from laptops like the Flex 5 14 and Swift 3 that leverage AMD’s excellent new silicon.

Display and speakers

Some budget laptops make up for other deficiencies by equipping a nice display, such as the Yoga C640 that enjoys a display that rivals laptops costing more than twice as much. Alas, that’s not the Inspiron 14 5000 — its display is way behind the curve, demonstrating the kind of low quality that we once assumed we’d see with laptops in this price range.

To begin with, it suffers from very low brightness, namely 195 nits that is well under our preferred 300 nits and makes a real impact on working on the laptop, viewing images, and watching video. It’s an anti-glare display, and so that helps a little. But as you can see in the photos above, it still comes across as a bit hard to read with any significant ambient lighting. The Yoga C640 and Flex 5 14 both hit a more reasonable 242 nits, by means of comparison.

The display is another area where the Inspiron 14 5000 fails to impress against some of its competition.

Contrast is low at 720:1, where we like to see 1,000:1 or more. Granted, not many budget laptops offer anywhere near that level of contrast. The Yoga C640 was an exception at 1040:1. The Flex 5 14 was more in line with the Inspiron at 770:1.

Color depth was also lacking, at just 64% of sRGB and 48% of AdobeRGB. The Yoga C640 hit 96% of sRGB and 73% of AdobeRGB, a much stronger score, while the Flex 5 14 also was poor at 63% and 47%, respectively. The Inspiron’s color accuracy was decent at 1.74 (under 1.0 is considered excellent), though.

The Inspiron 14 5000’s display will get you through your productivity tasks without a problem, but you won’t love the experience. Ultimately, it’s another area where the Inspiron 14 5000 fails to impress against some of its competition.

The audio was similarly a mixed bag. The speakers offer plenty of volume but a bit of distortion as things got louder. Bass was lacking, and mids and highs weren’t pleasant, making this a disappointing sound system. You’ll undoubtedly want to plug in headphones or use an external Bluetooth speaker if you’re doing more than watching the occasional YouTube video.

Keyboard and touchpad

The Inspiron 14 5000 doesn’t equip the excellent keyboard you’ll find on its more expensive XPS line, but instead uses a version with smaller keycaps and less spacing that makes for a bit of a cramped feel. The mechanism is OK, with good travel and a click that’s precise and doesn’t bottom out uncomfortably. If you’re a fast-touch typist, you may not hit your maximum speed with this keyboard, but you won’t be too far off.

The touchpad is equally adequate. It’s a Microsoft Precision touchpad, and so it supports Windows 10’s multitouch gestures reliably, and its surface is comfortable and provides good tactile feedback. There’s no touch display here, which may or may not matter to you. I favor laptops with touch displays, but I might be in the minority there.

Windows 10 Hello is provided by a fingerprint reader that’s built into the unmarked power button. I was able to log in quickly and accurately without ever need my PIN or password.

Battery life

Another measure of an old-school budget laptop is battery life, which tends to be rather poor as the battery capacity is sacrificed in the name of cost. The Inspiron 14 5000 suffers from a paltry 42.5 watt-hours of battery, which is significantly less than the 52.5 watt-hours in the Lenovo Flex 5 14. It’s not a lot of juice for a laptop with a Core CPU and a 14-inch display. My battery tests only affirmed this.

First, in our demanding Basemark web benchmark test, the Inspiron 14 5000 lasted for a paltry hour and a half. That’s a poor score usually relegated to gaming laptops that run fast CPUs at full throttle. The Flex 5 14, which we didn’t give high marks for battery life, lasted for almost four hours, and the Yoga C640 made it to over 3.5 hours. Simply put, the Dell isn’t going to last long if you’re pushing the CPU.

Next up was our web browsing test, where the Inspiron scored 4.7 hours. Again, this is a poor result, with the Flex 5 14 lasting eight hours, the Yoga C640 10.5 hours, and the Acer Swift 3 with Ryzen making it to just under eight hours. The Inspiron 14 50oo likely won’t make you more than half a day of even light productivity and web browsing tasks.

Finally, we ran our local Full HD movie trailer until the battery ran out, and the Inspiron 14 5000 couldn’t make it to six hours. The Flex 5 14 managed 11 hours, the Yoga C640 a (rather bizarre) 23 hours, and the Swift 3 10 hours.

The bottom line is that the Inspiron 14 5000 has inferior battery life that’s disappointing even given the price — and particularly compared to some other recent budget laptops.

Our take

The Dell Inspiron 14 5000 is an old-school budget laptop that cuts corners everywhere, so much so that it’s a little jarring to review it so soon after checking out the Lenovo Flex 5 14 and Yoga C640. The Inspiron’s display is dull, its performance gets trounced by Ryzen 4000 laptops, and its battery life is terrible.

Budget laptops are getting so much better, and the Inspiron 14 5000 has been left behind.

Are there any alternatives?

It’s been obvious from this review that there are better alternatives than the Inspiron 14 5000. Chief among them is the $600 Lenovo Flex 5 14, which offers a similarly poor display but beats out the Dell in performance, battery life, durability, and overall good looks. Plus, it’s a 2-in-1, which is a nice perk.

You could also opt for the Acer Swift 3, which is another 14-inch clamshell that’s faster and enjoys a better battery life. And it costs the same as the Dell’s retail price and is well worth the $80 premium at the Inspiron’s sale price.

How long will it last?

The Inspiron 14 5000 doesn’t evoke that much confidence in its longevity. Probably it will make it through a few tumbles, but I wouldn’t want to abuse it. The one-year warranty is standard and disappointing, as usual.

Should you buy it?

No. The Inspiron 14 5000 might have been attractive at its price even a few months ago, but there are many far better budget laptops available today.

Deal | Dell Inspiron 14 5000 2-in-1 with 11th gen Core i5-1135G7 now available for $650 USD, is probably the least expensive Tiger Lake laptop at launch

Intel's 11th gen platform will become widely available on more laptops by the end of this month across a range of manufacturers and SKUs. Fortunately, this means that users won't need to spend $1000 or more just to be an early adopter of Intel's fancy new processor.

One particular deal is the Dell Inspiron 14 5000 2-in-1 equipped with the Tiger Lake Core i5-1135G7 CPU for a final retail price of $650 USD after applying the code '50OFF699' at checkout. It may not be a Core i7, but a Core i5 will be more than enough for casual browsing, streaming, and student use. The integrated Iris Xe GPU will make light editing and gaming possible as well without needing to spend hundreds more on a laptop with dedicated GeForce MX graphics.

Some drawbacks to keep in mind are the 8 GB of single-channel RAM and outdated 768p resolution display. RAM is fortunately upgradeable and we recommend selecting the 1080p option instead for an extra $50 USD. The higher native resolution is a vital because upgrade because 768p has no place on a 14-inch Windows convertible.

Expect many more Tiger Lake and especially Ice Lake deals in the weeks ahead as retailers gear up for the impending Holiday shopping season.

Dell Inspiron 14 2021 Review and Unboxing - The Prodigy Laptop!

Dell Inspiron 14 5000 Series review: A stylish thin-and-light for the budget-minded with impressive battery life

For the Inspiron 14 5000 series it's 802.11ac Wi-Fi, a backlit keyboard, and the fact that the laptop is a bit more travel-friendly than you might expect given its pricing.

The 14 5000 starts at $550 and comes in three configurations; we tested the midpriced version, which retails for about $700. The 14 5000 isn't available in the UK or Australia, however the 15 5000 is, which has the same overall design but a larger 15.6-inch screen (touch optional), a keyboard with number pad, and configurations that include discrete graphics and, in Australia, solid-state hybrid drives and full-HD IPS touchscreens. Prices for the 15 5000 start £480 or AU$945.

The 14 7000 series is a step up in almost every way, but it's just more than $1,000. If you can't stretch your budget, the 14 5000 series is a compromise that doesn't necessarily feel like one. Well, at least not too much of one.

Design and features

What's best about the design of the 14 5000 series is that it looks better than you might be used to from a laptop that starts at $550. While the chassis is most definitely polycarbonate, the lid is finished with brushed metal with a small, simple Dell logo in the middle.

Mainstream laptops can be thick and heavy, but that's not the case here. It's not necessarily the thinnest or lightest 14-inch laptop, but you shouldn't have trouble slipping it into a shoulder bag or backpack. The whole thing measures 0.9-inch thick (22mm) with a width and depth of 13.5 by 9.7 inches (342x246mm) and weighs in at 4.8 pounds (2.2kg).

The 14 5000's keyboard is spill-resistant and backlit, and those are standard features even on the $550 entry configuration. There is a fair amount of flex in the keyboard deck, so if that's something that really bothers you, you may want to hit up a Best Buy to type on it for a bit.

I also found the keys to be a bit spongy feeling, perhaps caused by whatever makes it spill-resistant. Still, it's not a bad typing experience: the keys have good travel so that you don't feel like you're typing on a tabletop and there are no odd placements or awkwardly small keys.

The touchpad is large and supports multitouch gestures up to four fingers, though you'll have to enable many of them. It's a decent touchpad, but if you tend to type with your hands on the palm rests, you'll want to bump up the palm-rejection setting. Even with it turned all the way up I still experienced the occasional cursor jump.

The laptop's 14-inch touchscreen has a 1,366x768-pixel resolution, something that's still pretty common on midrange models. It's fine, all things considered, but it doesn't get very bright so working outside in bright daylight might prove problematic and color and contrast aren't great either. Basically, you get a touchscreen that's nice to have for Windows 8.1, but it's not a particularly good one.

Sound quality from the front-firing stereo speakers is good for casual listening, and they get fairly loud without distorting. You'll probably want to connect some decent desktop speakers or headphones when you can, though.

Ports and connections are nothing out of the ordinary. You get two USB 3.0 and one USB 2.0 ports; a full-size HDMI output; Ethernet; a headphone and mic jack; and an SD memory card slot.

Wireless features include newer 802.11ac Wi-Fi, which oddly isn't available in the pricier 14 7000 series, and Bluetooth 4.0.

Performance and battery life

The Inspiron 14 5000 series currently comes in three configuration options with the main difference being the processor. The entry model has an Intel Core i3 CPU, 4GB of memory, a 500GB 5,400rpm hard drive, and Intel Graphics HD 4400 integrated graphics. Then you can step up to either a Core i5 or Core i7 processor with 8GB of memory and a 1TB 5,400rpm hard drive.

That's it, though. There's no option to max out the memory to 16GB or swap in a hybrid or solid-state drive. You can't get a higher-resolution display or get a regular screen instead of a touchscreen. It certainly simplifies things when you go to buy, but if you were hoping to mix and match components, you can't.

What you can do, however, is remove two screws to get access to the hard drive, dual RAM slots, and the battery. If at any point you want to upgrade or replace those components, it's easy enough to do.

With the $700 Core i5 configuration, you can expect to get through daily tasks and entertainment with relative ease. It can handle multitasking like streaming music or video in the background while you do basic photo editing or Web surfing without feeling sluggish or like you're waiting an eternity for something to happen.

The system boots in less than a minute and applications open relatively fast. If, however, you've been spoiled by the speed of a solid-state drive for your OS and other software, it may in fact feel like an eternity.

The integrated graphics are good enough for casual gaming and viewing HD video. For demanding PC games you can get playable frame rates at reduced settings at native resolution. There is no option for discrete graphics with the 14 5000 or any of the other 5000 series models.

If one of your main concerns is being able to keep working on and off all day, the Inspiron 14 5000 should do the trick. In our video playback battery drain test it reached 7 hours and 4 minutes. That's really very good considering the size and price of this laptop, and with less demanding tasks you'll be able to go class to class or meeting to meeting for much of the day without hitting up an outlet.

Conclusion

Like all of the Inspiron laptops we've tested, the 14 5000 series is a good value with impressive battery life, but you don't get a lot of choice when it comes to specs.
