3/5 Dell Inspiron 14z (2012) DigitalVersus 2013-02-15 09:40:00


  • Quiet, even when working hard
  • Temperature is kept in check
  • RAM compartment can be accessed by users


  • Glossy screen, display quality isn't great
  • Audio quality could be better
  • Not great for gaming


Seeing as audio quality could be better and the screen isn't great, the Dell Inspiron 14Z only gets a three star score. However, this 14" ultrabook works quietly, has a built-in DVD drive, a set of standard connections, and sells at a reasonable price.
