Silver Dell Inspiron i5447-6250sLV is a 14 inch versatile, slim and compact laptop designed for those more on the move, with a responsive vivid HD quality touchscreen, a powerful Haswell Intel i5 processor with speed to load websites and apps quickly, outstanding sound with Waves Maxx Audio and faster 802.11ac wireless technology with a reasonable price tag.

Dell Inspiron has a 4th generation Intel Core i5-4210U processor at 1.7 GHz (3M Cache) up to 2.7 GHz with Turbo Boost Technology, 8GB DDR3L (2 DIMM- 2x4GB) SDRAM memory at 1600 MHz, 1TB Serial ATA hard drive at 5400 rpm and 64-bit English Windows 8.1 OS. Intel i5-4210U is a very low voltage- energy efficient Haswell processor released in quarter 2 of 2014 that is used more in ultra books. It is a dual-core processor but offers great four way processing with hyper threading (two cores handling four threads in parallel) and turbo boost that increases the speed when you need more performance and less power usage when you don’t need the extra performance.

1 TB is equal to 1024GB of spacious storage for whatever you want to save on the computer, it has the 5400rpm rotating speed which seems to be the standard but still offers fast read and write times and the generous 8GB of system memory gives it quite a bit of multitasking power to run several apps, software and internet browsers at once and can be expanded up to 16GB if you need even more RAM. The latest Windows 8.1 operating system comes pre-installed with its additional functionality, so you do not need to upgrade it from the standard Windows 8 and once you get used to it, you’re likely to enjoy it more than the previous versions of Windows.

Vivid 14 inch LED backlit touchscreen with a native resolution of 1366 x 768 pixel HD resolution for clear visuals with sharp detail and vibrant colours in videos, photos and games and the Intel HD 4400 integrated graphics card with its 20 execution units and some architectural enhancements is 20 to 30 percent faster than the HD 4000 that you see on many budget laptop and slightly lower than the HD 4600 with lower clock rates as it is designed for ultra books mainly. It is also nice to have the accurate and responsive 10-finger touch display with capacitive sensors to use with the Windows 8’s apps and tiles. You get nothing less of stunning and immersive studio quality sound through its built-in Dell 2.0 stereo speakers and the Waves MaxxAudio.

The brushed aluminium silver Dell Inspiron is 0.9 inch thin and almost 20% lighter than previous Dells at 4.6 lbs weight. It is quite a portable machine for those with on the move lifestyles (will fit in a backpack easily) with also the 43WHr 3-cell lithium ion battery that gives up to 6.5 hours of battery life in average use on a single charge. It comes with an optional backlit keyboard to let you type comfortably in dimly lit rooms. There is no DVD drive on the Inspiron- being a slim and light machine but a variety of connectivity options such as the 802.11ac wireless, Bluetooth 4.0 tied to wireless card, 10/100 Ethernet LAN with RJ-45, Multiformat Media Card Reader, 2 x USB 3.0 ports, 1 x USB 2.0 port, an HDMI port, a 720p webcam with integrated microphone and a Biometrics- FastAccess Facial Recognition function.

Conclusion: Dell Inspiron i5447-6250sLV is a stylish and durable touchscreen PC laptop that is easy on the eyes, functional and versatile, and with solid build quality. Windows 8 may not be everyone’s cup of tea but it is often about a small learning curve and you can choose to use the more familiar desktop screen anyway. It doesn’t come with a DVD drive but when was the last time you needed one? And this contributes to the compact and lightweight factor of the PC. Intel i5-4210U processor with turbo boost and hyper threading, 8GB RAM, 1TB SATA hard drive, LED backlit 14” touch display with Intel HD 4400 graphics, Waves Maxx Audio, fast 802.11ac wireless and a good range of useful connectivity options are some of what you will get in an attractive looking package.
