Unlocking Excellence on a Budget: The DELL Inspiron 14 7445 2-in-1 Review

In the crowded field of low-priced laptops, a diamond in the rough may be easy to miss when you should have been taking a closer look – at the DELL Inspiron 14 7445 2-in-1. It’s an object lesson in providing a high level of performance, flexibility, durability and value for not a lot of money. This review explains how the Inspiron 14 is the type of laptop DELL is getting right when it comes to offering more for less: quality, value and innovation for families or on-the-go workers considering smaller investments.

A Closer Look at DELL's Versatile Performer

Embracing the Power of Flexibility

Some might dismiss the DELL Inspiron 14 7445 2-in-1 as just another budget laptop. And, yes, it’s a computer with a stunningly attractive 14-inch display and Intel’s latest 11th-generation Core processor that costs less than $1,000. But the Inspiron 14 is more than just a portable computer. It’s a gateway to mobility. It’s a glimmer of adaptability in the cold, unsettling grey of personal computing. It’s the only computer that a student, let alone a professional, needs.

Proving Performance and Endurance

The Inspiron 14 from DELL is not only built for power, delivering almost 10 hours of battery life for solid performance, but it’s also built for longevity. It surpasses US military standard 810H (never mind the milk indoors) so you can rest assured your notebook can withstand the daily wear and tear of real life. In a nutshell, the Inspiron 14 won’t let you down, no matter if you’re crunching numbers, streaming media or travelling for work.

An Exercise in Compromise

Yet the Inspiron 14 also reminds us that “perfect” is a horizon, not a goal. The dim and dull display and anaemic audio are areas where DELL traded off excellence for, well, balance. Provided you don’t mind these omissions, however, the Inspiron 14 is a solid machine and an equally solid jack-of-all-trades.

Where Durability Meets Design

Shown in a serious Midnight Blue aluminium chassis (50 per cent recycled material) that’s not aiming to emulate the premium DELL counterparts, the Inspiron 14 is here to cater for a different kind of customer; one who wants something in its own right, not a poor relation to its pricier stablemate. It carries an MIL-STD-810H test rating to suggest it can jump in the back of an open-backed truck to keep pace with your most dynamic lifestyle.

A Dash of Display Disappointment

Its Inspiron 14 display might not win you any hardware trophies for brightness or color accuracy, however the combination of pixel touch responsiveness and viewing modes ranging from tablet to tent make it all you need to see what you’re doing. DELL even throws in a 1080p webcam, colour-vibrancy lacking notwithstanding, and camouflages it with a privacy-shutter. Darn right there’s a webcam throw-in. As noted earlier, there’ll probably come a time when you enjoy a little face-to-face video chat.

Sound and Fury

DELL was clearly aiming for the ultimate in audio satisfaction, though the Inspiron 14’s speakers probably won’t go loud enough for the big game in the backyard. For listening to music in the background or taking calls with clients via Skype, they’re more than good enough. Those who are seeking an auditory escape, however, might want to wear a good set of headphones anyway.

Typing Comfort Comes Standard

Typists get rewarded with an excellent, backlit keyboard, which makes time spent on the machine less painful. It also includes a precision touchpad, so navigating is equally comfortable. Writing code is as smooth as it gets on this user-facing machine. DELL is well-known for its devices.

A Solid Performer Under Pressure

Its AMD Ryzen 7 processor, plentiful RAM and storage, and fingerswipe touchpad turn an Inspiron 14 into a smooth performer for tasks such as word processing, browsing the web and light CAD and video production. It’s not an up-all-night graphic-design or gaming machine, but it’s a pretty good choice for that King Lear seminar, especially when you consider that it is a 14-inch laptop that costs less than $350.

Should the DELL Inspiron 14 7445 2-in-1 Be Your Next Laptop?
