Dell Inspiron 14 5418-066 Chassis, Connectors, Display
It sports a sober and elegant appearance with its thin and light light silver design, the fact that it rises slightly forward once opened bringing a touch of originality.
This versatile laptop has good connectivity including 1 USB-C, Wi-Fi ax wireless modules(newer and more powerful than Wi-Fi ac)and Bluetooth 5.1 for remote connections and communications, an audio port or 3 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers made up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are connected to it.
Via Windows Hello technology and the integrated fingerprint reader, it is possible to authenticate by biometric recognition.
The chiclet keyboard can be backlit of course which is very convenient so that you can better distinguish its keys when the ambient light is reduced.
Fans of High Definition content will appreciate that the screen adopts a precise Full HD definition associated with a 16/9th format that lends itself well to video playback. As it is anti-reflective, the screen is also more readable in bright environments (e.g. outside) than a shiny slab.
Dell Inspiron 14 5418-066 Performance, Battery Life
This Dell Inspiron 14 5418-066 is a compact, high-performance High Definition laptop designed for everyday versatile use.
A maximum of users will be satisfied by the overall performance delivered by this thin and light laptop as it is built around 8GB of RAM and a Quad Core i5-11300H Intel Tiger Lake-H processor.
For example, it ensures faster processing than low Quad Core consumption, especially under CPU-intensive work taking advantage of multi-core such as photo editing, 3D rendering or video editing.
In addition, the Quad Core i5 Tiger Lake-H incorporates the Iris Xe. The performance of this graphics solution is significantly superior to that of the previous generation Intel UHD 630.
In practice thanks to the Iris Xe, you can watch photos and videos of course. But also play titles not too demanding in graphic resources.
That being said as it is not backed up by a dedicated graphics card, this sleek silver Ultrabook is not designed for heavy graphics work like gaming.
When it comes to storage, Dell chooses a quiet SSD while being more energy efficient than a hard drive, more shock-resistant and much faster.
As a result, thanks to the SSD, we benefit for example from starts/stops, software launches and processing much faster than with a simple hard disk, or a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
Here we find a 512 GB SSD, capacity similar to the standard in hard drives. However, in the event that additional space is needed, it is of course possible to use an external storage unit. Opting for a USB-C/USB 3.0 device is then an interesting solution to obtain fast transfers.
As for the autonomy of this Ultrabook whose transport is facilitated by the controlled weight, compactness and finesse, count on about 5 hours on battery in light use. Also expect noise and heating in case of heavy loads (e.g. treatments).
