The new Inspiron™ 14R features Windows 8, a 14" screen, color options and long battery life in a system built to travel. Add an optional touch screen to boost interactivity.
Whether you’re streaming blockbusters or setting a new high score, up to 4th Gen Intel® Core™ processors deliver long battery life and a stunning visual experience to get the most from your favorite Windows 8 apps and games.
At about 1″ thin, Inspiron™ 14R slips easily into a travel bag for when you’re on the move. Even with a 6-cell battery, you’ll hardly know it’s there.*
Style for miles

We want you to love your new PC for years to come. That's why we test every Inspiron laptop for reliability not just in the places where you expect it, but for the open road ahead.
• Turn up the heat: From locker rooms to locked cars, we test Inspiron laptops for survival in harsh short-term heat conditions of up to 65°C/149°F.
• Everything hinges on it: We test Inspiron laptop hinges to ensure they still feel tight, even after opening and closing the lid 20,000 times.
• Keys to success: We test commonly used keys for 10 million keystrokes and touch pad buttons one million times with no failure. So go ahead, finish your novel.
• Buttoned up: No matter what you set your power and multimedia buttons to do, we've tested them all to survive up to 40,000 pushes with no problems.
• Twist and turn: Call us excessive, but after twisting every Inspiron laptop's base and lid more than 25,000 times, we can assure you the parts inside are well protected.
• Always a good fit: You'll probably never need to remove and reinstall your Inspiron's battery 750 times, but you can rest easy knowing that we've tested even that.
