  • I wouldn't recommend a $1,329 for home use.
    It has a 5400 RPM hard drive, not even an SSD.
    Edit: "hybrid hard drive", so maybe some SSD. But doesn not say how much space on the SSD part. Still overpriced I think.

    • But doesn not say how much space on the SSD part.

      it says "8GB Cache"

      • I misread it, thinking it was the typical 8MB you would find on a conventional hard drive.
        8GB is not particularly useful. That means it does not really use SSD for storage.

        • Perhaps you should try researching what a hybrid HDD actually is, and how it works. They're actually very good, and a very decent compromise between large storage space and high data speeds.

          Incidentally, this is a very nice laptop at a very decent price. I use one (a slightly different model) for business use and it's been going for about 6 months without skipping a beat.

        • If the drive cannot store a useful amount of data on flash memory, it means it needs to be read from the magnetic part. This means significant delays, whichever way you look at it.
          With the current prices of SSD drives, there should be no need for hybrids at this price level.

        • this is a lot of things (and Dell are generally decent quality), but cheap isn't one of those things

        • The point of hybrid drives is to get high capacity AND fast speeds, in applications where you can't fit a second hard drive. A 1TB SSD is vastly expensive, whereas a well-implemented hybrid drive can provide 1TB of storage, with high-speed access to the important files on your system, for a fraction of the price.

          Unless you're a professional video editor, you don't need high-speed access to the big multimedia files that tend to take up most of your space on your HDD. What you do need/want is fast boot times and a responsive OS, which a hybrid drive permits by caching the important files and serving them up at SSD speeds.

          If you look at the testing results on these drives, you'll see that they deliver 90% of the benefits of an SSD, at 20% of the price. Battery life, boot times and general OS responsiveness for common tasks is accelerated dramatically, and you still get LOTS of storage space for all your files.

          Yes it's a compromise, but it's not a bad one.

  • Hard to find a definitive answer on whether this has an mSATA slot. Usual mixed reports. Freakin' ridiculous it's not a standard feature on all the latest model laptops.

  • Inspiron 14 7000 is much thinner but not full hd and cheap like dell us :(

  • I bought this latptop a few months back, still with Windows 8.0 and let me tell… what a nightmare when it updated to Windows 8.1. Screen would freeze in a "Please Wait" state and there was absolutely nothing that could be done. Had to restore the original installation 3 times as drivers would not be compatible with the new OS - I am an IT professional with years of experience and I would be sorry for the every day user that had to go through the same pain.

    I also felt that it's quite heavy even though the case is aluminum.

    Probably, wouldn't buy again.

    • I was in the same situation, but happily mine updated to Windows 8.1 with no issues whatsoever. I wonder why our experiences were so different?

    • Had the same problem with my Inspiron 15, it would freeze whenever it went to "sleep" after updating to 8.1 and would require a hard reset. Had some issue with the base 8.0 install as well so ended up just going back to 7 and it has been perfect since. Might give it 6 months for Dell to get their drivers in order and try it again.

  • Been wanting to pull the trigger on this laptop all week because of the good discount on offer, not sure if anything better around given the specs and price?

    • I would wait, given that the better End-Of-Financial-Year specials are likely to come. Chances are that better deals come along in the next few weeks. Especially Dell tends to do their best deals in June. I fondly remember this deal
