Dell Inspiron 14R (model n4010) Series Laptop – Specs and Review

by MJK on July 19, 2010



I always say technology is “beauty with brains” especially when I talk about the Dell Inspiron14 R (model n4010) series that they have launched recently, the first thing to catch your attention is its style and silver accent but it’s more than just beauty, although it starts with a higher price but with improved hardware than Inspiron 14, it has few plus points to it

Get your’s from the four colors available in ; Mars Black, Peacock Blue, Tomato Red, or Promise Pink, the price for Inspiron 14R is 649$ and 40$ added if you choose any color other than Black, the reason for its high price is the Core i3 or i5 processor  which ultimately doubles the speed of your laptop CPU along with clearer interrelated graphics.

The R series does not give you many configuration preferences, once you choose a model all you can do is change its color and upgrade to 6GB of RAM, the exterior of Inspiron R series is quite attractive and user friendly, the lid hinge or support is set off about a half inch forward to the back of the laptop, the keyboard tray has a smooth silver color, there is a power plug on the right side extending from the back, and a USB port to the left side. The ether jack, exhaust vents, an HDMI output, eSATA/USB port and a multiformat card reader are placed on its left side, to the right side is the other USB port, headphone and microphone jacks with the 8X CD/DVD burner. It is an upgrade of 802.11n networking, and has a much louder speaker audio quality. With a 14” lcd size and 5.1 pound weight the Dell Inspiron 14R is quite a good buy.

Lets talk about the entertainment part, the vivacious graphics and screen gives you the opportunity to play games a mighty fine experience but there is one imperfection the fan makes a loud noise while any graphic intensive game is played other wise in regular use it runs quiet and normal.

Another feature is the Core i3 and i5 processors that makes web surfing, e-mail, word processing and image editing easy, with 4GB RAM the system is quite appealing and corresponding.

The keyboard has soft buttons and clicks easily but the space bar is set quite low, the bigger touch-pad is firm and even, with the two buttons which makes clicking on them easy hence no misclicks.

Although the graphics are not switchable and effects its battery life which is just 3 hours and some people might find the spacebar a little pesky the Inspiron R14  other wise is an attractive system, it can pretty much do everything, not bad for a 800$ price tag especially for the younger crowd..
