Versatile laptop thin and light and yet powerful thanks to its Quad Core i5-11300H Intel Tiger Lake-H processor, the Dell Inspiron 14 5418 with 14-inch Full HD anti-glare screen takes advantage of a fast 512 GB SSD storage which boosts its reactivity. This elegant silver Ultrabook is able to run not too greedy games thanks to the graphics solution Iris Xe of the CPU and benefits from a backlit chiclet keyboard, a fingerprint reader but also a Wi-Fi connection ax and USB-C.

Chassis, connectors, Dell Inspiron 14 5418 screen
With its thin and lightweight light silver design, this versatile Ultrabook that rises slightly forward when opened has a sleek and understated look.
It is equipped with good connectivity with its USB-C, its Wi-Fi ax wireless modules ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) and Bluetooth 5.1 for remote connections and communications, an audio port but also 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you connect USB 3.0 peripherals.
As a fingerprint reader is integrated, we can authenticate by biometric recognition via Windows Hello technology.
In addition, the keys of the chiclet keyboard can be backlit, which is practical to better distinguish them in reduced lighting conditions.
The screen for its part is suitable for videos and more generally for High Definition content with its 16: 9 format and precise Full HD definition. Its anti-reflective treatment also makes it more readable than a shiny panel in a bright environment (eg outdoors).
Performance, battery life of Dell Inspiron 14 5418
This Dell Inspiron 14 5418 is a compact High Definition performance laptop designed for everyday general purpose use.
It embeds a Quad Core i5-11300H Intel Tiger Lake-H processor which delivers solid general performance capable of satisfying a maximum of users, associated with 8 GB of RAM.
The Core i5-11300H notably guarantees faster processing than a low-power Quad Core, particularly in areas requiring CPU resources using multicore (eg photo retouching, video editing, 3D rendering).
Within the Tiger Lake-H, we find the Iris Xe, a graphics solution whose performance is clearly superior to those of the previous generation Intel UHD 630.
Concretely, thanks to the Iris Xe, you can watch photos and videos but also run games that do not require too much 3D resources.
But of course if the goal is to play demanding titles, it is better to opt for a PC with an appropriate dedicated graphics card.
SSD storage clearly reinforces its responsiveness and fluidity on a daily basis compared to a simple hard drive.
It must be said that an SSD is much faster than the latter while being less energy intensive, more robust and silent.
In practice, thanks to the SSD, we benefit from much faster starts / stops, processing and software launches, or even faster arrival on the cards of online games.
With its 512 GB, the SSD offers here a capacity similar to the standard of hard disks. However, if you need more space, you can always use an external storage unit such as a USB-C / USB 3.0 device to benefit from fast transfers.
As for battery life, bet on about 5 hours on battery in light use for this Ultrabook whose compactness, finesse and controlled weight facilitate transport.
However, expect it to make itself heard and heat up when pushed hard (eg: treatments).
