Although we didn't test this exact model, in our Dell Inspiron 14 7000 hands-on, we liked its lightweight and compact design. Weighing 2.8 pounds and measuring 12.7 x 8.8 x 0.7 inches, the Inspiron 14 7000 is one of the most ultraportable notebooks around. It's on par with the weight of the Dell XPS 13 (2.8 pounds, 11.6 x 7.8 x 0.6-inches) and MSI Prestige 14 (2.8 pounds, 12.8 x 8.5 x 0.6 inches). It's slightly lighter than the Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 (2.9 pounds, 12.1 x 8.8 x 0.6 inches).
In terms of design, the Inspiron 14 7000's magnesium alloy chassis accounts for its lightness and durability. And with thin bezels surrounding its 14.5-inch display, the Inspiron 14 7000 is also fairly compact.
Performance-wise, the Inspiron 14 7000 should be on par with that of the Editor's Choice Asus ZenBook 13 we tested. It houses the same Core i7-1165G7 CPU and 8GB of RAM SoC which delivered powerful overall and gaming performance in our lab. The system notched a score of 5,084 on the Geekbench 5 overall performance test, which surpasses the 4,030 premium laptop average.
As for connectivity, the new Inspiron 14 7000 is outfitted with two USB 3.2 ports, a single Thunderbolt 4 port, an HDMI 2.0 port, and a 3.5mm headphone/mic jack.
Overall, the Dell Inspiron 14 7000 is a solid pick if you want to upgrade to a stylish yet powerful machine. As an alternative, Dell also offers the Dell Vostro 14 5402 for $749 ($678 off). It packs a 14-inch (1920 x 1080) display, 2.8-GHz 11th Gen Intel Core i7-1165G7 quad-core CPU, 8GB of RAM, Iris Xe graphics, and a 256GB SSD.
