Dell's Inspiron 14 7000 series continues to be a stylish value for everyday life
When it comes to laptops, plenty of people care more about value and performance than they do about looks or how thin and light a system is.
But, if you care about both, you'll probably want to check out the Dell Inspiron 14 7000 series.
I'm Josh Goldman with CNet, and this laptop offers very good performance and battery life, in a slim, light, aluminum body that is sturdy enough to handle a daily commute.
Last time we looked at this series, even the $850 entry model had a full HD screen and a backlit keyboard, but Dell dropped the price to $800 and dropped the screen resolution along with it.
So, you'll have to pay $1,000 to get one with a 1080p screen.
But, you'll also get an updated dual Core, Core i7 processor instead of a Core i5 and 2 GBs of additional memory for a total of 8 GB.
All of the configurations come with a 500GB hard drive but if you want to spend $50 more you'll get a 32GB mSATA SSD2.
That's what we tested and it performed very well.
It's no power house nor is it meant to be, but for general office work and entertainment and light photo and video editing it's plenty.
Battery life on our video drain test came in at just less than eight hours, which is great.
You can see full review on Cnet.com.
But while the entry model isn't quite the bargain it used to be.
The series continues to be a nice balance of value and style.
I'm Josh Goldman, and, that's a quick look at the Dell Inspiron 14 7000 series.
