Chassis, connectors, Dell Inspiron 14 7415 2-in-1 display
For an Inspiron, the Dell Inspiron 14 7415 2-in-1 inherits a nice design with a chassis made of aluminum . The assembly is neat but the design remains very sober, in a blue hue that is out of the ordinary and discreet smooth and matt surfaces. This Mist Blue color does not correspond to the visuals presented.
The keyboard is backlit in white in several shades for easier typing in the dark, and a fingerprint reader takes place at the power button for quick authentication to its session via Windows Hello.
Taking center stage, the 14.0-inch screen cultivates a sense of immersion thanks to an edge-to-edge design and the bright WVA IPS panel that is visible from all angles. Good point, Dell has kept the standard positioning of the webcam despite the refinement of the border and it benefits from a shutter for confidentiality. As for the screen itself, the dense Full HD definition (1920 x 1080 px) allows you to view High Definition content in the best conditions and to modulate the display while the touch technology offers a playful dimension and different from Windows 10. Of course, touch requires, it will be necessary to compose with a shiny screen which reflects the reflections in a bright environment.
The connection that equips this Inspiron 14 7415 is correctly provided with a USB Type-C Gen1 which supports the video stream and the power supply, two USB 3.2 Type-A ports (standard format) and an HDMI 1.4 output as well as a video player. microSD card. Wireless modules are entrusted to recent Wifi AX and Bluetooth 5.0.
Dell Inspiron 14 7415 2-in-1 performance, battery life
The strength of this Dell Inspiron 14 7415 2-in-1 is first of all to look at the processor department with the support of an AMD Ryzen Lucienne Zen 2 (2021) Ryzen 5 5500U Hexa Core low consumption. This shows a nice increase in performance compared to the Ryzen 5 3500U (2019), thanks in particular to the number of cores which doubles but also to the finer engraving used. It is also significantly more efficient than its predecessor of 2020 (Ryzen 5 4500U) but more noticeably. For all common office-type uses, it is perfectly at ease as an Intel Core i7-1165G7 (2021) would be, but the difference emerges more visibly on tasks that consume CPU resources that can take advantage of all cores such as content creation (editing, rendering, modeling …).
Namely that we remain on low consumption (TDP 15W), so do not expect from this processor the same resources as an Octo Core-H (Ryzen 5 5600H; Cezanne) which is a processor designed for complex and in-depth calculations. Opposite, the 8 GB of RAM is the minimum in 2021 to comfortably surf Windows 10.
The graphics chip, an AMD Radeon Vega 7 built into the CPU, is more than enough for everyday work and the tasks listed above and even allows for a few games from time to time on graphically undemanding games. Most will however require to make some concessions on screen definition and / or details.
The storage is entrusted to a 256 GB M.2 NVMe PCIe SSD , allowing to bring its share of fluidity to Windows 10 and to the overall execution of the programs, knowing that this is paid at the level of the capacity. If we count the space occupied by the system and by the programs, there is only about 200 GB of free space, enough to house a small part of your game library. For the rest, you will have to opt for an external or online solution.
Last characteristic which is important, especially on a 14-inch convertible which is intended to move, autonomy should approach 9 hours of operation in current use. It’s about the right amount for working on the go.
