First Look: Dell Inspiron 14z hands-on

2:04 /

With a graphics card, optical drive, and big 500GB hard drive, this new slim system from Dell offers a great mix of hardware and design for the price.

I'm Dan Ackerman and we are here taking a look at these Dell Inspiron fourteen Z. This is a new version of the Inspiron fourteen Z part of the redesigned Inspiron line -- and if you're looking -- -- might go. This doesn't really look like Dell Inspiron I remember those being sort of the low budget very -- -- -- from Dell kind of people keep plant he laughed out. Of this new series of Inspiron so I actually think they're very nicely designed to look pretty good -- -- the more expensive than they are. Case -- point. This is an 899. To fourteen inch it's technically an ultra book even though. It's a bit bigger than most ultra books I've got an optical drive and it -- -- graphics card -- it. All these things that don't really think ultra book but technically they sneak in under the line there -- you know it's part medal of part plastic. I would pick it up it feels little more plasticky than it looks -- different little more expensive -- it is when you touch it. I you can kind of -- okay this is in front -- like the more expensive side XPS line for example. That Dell had. Got a nice big touch -- however even that got the separate left and right mouse buttons a lot of laptops now moving to that Cingular click pad. And the keyboard it's sort of -- variation on that island style that would have keys are just a little bit more rounded. I found the keyboard is little class. That's two too terrible but one -- I was pleasantly surprised by with the fact that little ports on the phone and laptop. Are covered up by flat so you don't seem actually looks kind of nice to get to you with -- -- get HDMI. I get an ethernet Jack not even the 2200 dollar fifteen inch -- that MacBook Pro has an ethernet Jack. -- -- have display port slash thunderbolt ports that this guy lacks. Up when you think about that right combination of price performance design. I think you'd you'd do well to at least take a test drive. In this guy right here that is the Dell Inspiron fourteen Z.
