This computer have a very good quality. its shape is awesome..
Daniel Orozco (Guatemala)
I called Dell again and told them my problem, it was pretty obvious and customer support said they would send the 2GB RAM stick.
If I can't solve this issue, this will be the first and last DELL I buy.

I read 3 or 4 computer websites about the Dell Inspiron 14z before purchasing on Amazon, and my experience is in line with those reviews. (I ordered the model with i5 processor/6 GB of RAM). My family has several other Dell Inspiron 14-inch laptops; this is our first 14z. (And Dell, if you're reading this, I really wanted to buy another 14R, but the switchable lids make it feel cheap. It's a computer, not a toy). Anyway, back my review:

- Lightweight and thin, yet sturdy
- Very good processor speed (probably worth getting the i5)
- Accessible keyboard
- Three USB ports
- Bright, clear screen
- 1 year of McAfee
- Windows 7

Could be better:
- Port covers are not necessary and get in the way
- The mouse buttons take a lot of effort to "click" (and as such, I would not recommend this computer for a small child)
- Does not have the Power DVD software common to previous Dell laptops I've purchased
- And, unfortunately, includes a lot of software you probably won't want. The first 30 minutes of using this computer was a struggle among all the various "helpful" programs all simultaneously expecting to be registered, activated and/or updated. A "Nero" program was particularly annoying and could not be turned off, only minimized; I wound up uninstalling it altogether.
- Surface areas easily show fingerprints
- I would have liked to add the optional backlit keyboard, but it is only available on the top-of-the-line 14z model for $200 more

All in all, a good value, and I estimate I saved $60 buying from Amazon rather than direct from Dell.

Short story: Stay way. I have had multiple problems with this laptop and Dell support can not fix said problems.

I needed a laptop for school that could handle CAD programs, handle computational programs, have a good battery, and be portable. At the time my Toshiba Satellite had lasted me a good 4 years but the hard drive was becoming spotty and the battery life was decreasing. I decided to upgrade and after a little looking around I decided on the Dell Inspiron 14z. It looked good for a decent price. I quickly received the laptop from Amazon and the Dell was considerably faster than my previous Toshiba, a lot lighter, and the battery life was almost double. After a month of owning it I discovered that the microphone did not work with Skype or Google Chat. I guessed this problem was around since I bought the laptop. I was still in school at the time so I waited until summer to get it fixed. In July I contacted customer support via online chat help. After over an hour of diagnosis it was determined that my laptop motherboard was defective and I needed to send it in. This is what I had been afraid of, but since it was summer I could be without the laptop for a couple weeks to get it fixed.

Dell sent the package very quickly and then called me every step to let me know what was happening. A little too much in my opinion but it was good to know it would be done quickly. I then received the laptop back from Dell. I turned it on and first tested the microphone and it worked, problem solved. Not too fast, I was reloading my files that I had backed up and noticed that on 'Computer' window that my laptop said it only had 4GB of RAM. As in the description it came with 6GB of RAM when it was new. I opened up the back panel and saw that there was a 4GB RAM stick in the slot.

Hello Ryan,

I am sorry to see that your experience with your system and Dell Technical Support has not been perfect. This is not the kind of experience we want our customers to have. I know how important it is to have your computer up and running for school.

Please feel free to reach out to our social media support team so they can look into this on your behalf. They may be able to provide additional help. They can be reached on Facebook (, Twitter: @DellCares ( or on the Dell Community Forum (

I bought this laptop for my wife to use for her daily use such as email and watching videos. Let's just say that for the price, it can't be beat. It comes with Windows 7 Home, a Core i5-2450M and 6 GB of RAM. I felt that it was just the right size at 14" ... not too big and not too small. It also still has a DVD/CD drive.

When I was researching laptops, I was on the fence of getting a laptop with an i3 processor or an i5 processor. I had to pay a little more, but I felt that it would still be a pretty decent laptop a few years for now.

The i3 processor is only a dual core, while the i5 is a quad core. Also it comes with 6 GB of RAM -- most laptops only come with 4 GB in this price range. I haven't tried it for gaming yet, but when I get a chance, I'll try installing Diablo 3 and revise my review. I have no doubt that this laptop should be able to handle it. Maybe not at the best settings, but good enough to play without any issues.

Initial setup was like any laptop. A few registration prompts, but nothing major. If you've owned a laptop before, setting this up should be simple enough.

Somethings that I found annoying is the default Dell application that handles your media and movies. I had to manually set it so that it doesn't open up. I'll try to post pics later. Also I hate the fact that it has covers on the USB ports because it doesn't really open up all the way and it ruins the convenience factor.

Overall I feel that this is a little power house with great features that should last for awhile before I think about upgrading.

5/28/12 UPDATE

I installed Diablo 3 and it runs fine with the default settings minus the anti aliasing.
