Bought this in March 2012 and it's been more than 3 months now. So I think I can give a fair review of this laptop now that I have spent a considerable time with it.
The laptop came without an OS so I installed Ubuntu on it. (Using Ubuntu 12.04 at the time of writing this review)
I would suggest you go with Ubuntu instead of Windows because the hardware of this laptop works like a charm with it. Windows will slow it down terribly.
(I have seen many people blame the laptop for its slowness when it's infact Windows that causes it.)
The reasons why I am happy with Inspiron 14R:
- The bootup time is less than 15 seconds and shut down is less than 10 seconds.
- Superslick to use.
- Love the 3 USB ports with two of them being USB 3.0
- Keyboard and touchpad are great to use
- Durable body
- Webcame is great to use
- My battery life is around 4:30 hours. Credit goes to Ubuntu 12.04 which has some great power saving features.
It does get a bit hot and the gruelling summer of Gujarat isn't helping either.
Pro Tip: When using any laptop at home, remove your battery and use the power outlet to work on your laptop. This is because when your laptop gets heated up, the heat affects your battery life. Heat is the biggest killer of battery so make sure you remove it and keep it aside.
I know it will be cumbersome to remove and replace battery everytime you come home and go out, but these small things will save you Rs. 3000-5000 in next few years.
THIS PRODUCT IS QUITE AWESOME WITH LATEST FEATURES SUCH AS BLUETOOTH 3.0 ,USB 3.0 AND INTEL WIRELESS DISPLAY.SO WHAT CAN U DEMAND MORE THAN THAT.WORKS GRETA WITH WINDOWS 7 HOME BASIC AND THE GREAT THING IS THAT IT NEVER HANGS.SOUND QUALITY IS SO GOOD THAT U WILL LOVE IT.SO ACCORDING TO ME IT IS IDEAL FOR COLLEGE STUDENTS AND PROFESSIONALS.DONT THINK SO MUCH JUST GO FOR IT.
And also, service provide by Flipkart is awesome. I have got this product in two days.
This is an excellent deal for this price..u get the latest features like BT 3.0 and USB 3.0 @ such an affordable price..the build quality is good and performance,as usual, meets Dells' standards..it is just awesome..
The windows experience index is using 32Bit windows 7 professional:
Primary Hard Disk=5.9
All in All , a nice product..Best deal if your budget is under 30k.
this is a good product with all your basic needs to be filled .
Support win7 64 bit , but you can install the win xp, all the drivers avail for win 7 from dell site, for xp driver you may need to download from other sites. i hv installed xp and working fine .only issue with BT , as it contains BT3.0 , i am not getting the BT3.0 driver.
I bought this 1.5 years back (Not from flipcart.com)and now its battery is gone, performance is very slow. Warranty also ended. A big disappointment. It worked well only for 1st year. I'll advice go for lenovo, HP or sony.
