PROS:                                                                                                          CONS:
Spacious keyboard; Soft keys                                                      Weight at 5.2 punds

SWITCH: easy option to change look of laptop
Metallic Body

Having an Intel Core i5 processor, you'll feel the speed difference from the moment you turn it on. I compared the starting up and closing down time with an Intel core i3 to find a noticeable difference. Having a a difference of 15-20 sec in starting and 10 sec in closing time. I've also done some serious video editing and conversion on this, with zero crashes or freeze ups.

Dell Inspiron n4110 Keyboard
The Dell Inspiron 4110 has a metallic black body which makes it strong enough to take an accidental fall. The metal body however adds to the weight. When I compared it with my 15.6" hp in plastic (2.0 kg), it was heavier at 2.5 kg! Despite having a smaller screen. But because of its small size it's still easily portable. The interior is all metallic black and has a reflective edge to it. However the black looks unclean, becasue fingerprints and dust show up very easily. A single dust particle is obvious.

I have completely fallen for the Dell's keyboard. The keys are so soft and don't even make the slightest sound when you type. They're also set apart making the keyboard very spacious and in between them there is plastic layer, so as not to let dust go under the keys and gather there.

This model in the inspiron line has the option to change your laptop lid with optional interchangeable lids. So you can personalize your laptop with SWITCH by Design Studio. Click here to view the range of available lids. From basic colours to intricate designs. It's a great option if you want to personalize your laptop frequently with no hassle.

  • 1 x USB 2.0
  • 2 x USB 3.0
  • 1 x HDMI v1.4
  • 1 x USB 2.0 with E-SATA & Power Share
  • 1 x network connector 10/100
  • 1 x VGA Port
  • Audio jacks (1-line out, 1 Mic-in)
The n4110 has four USB ports on each side: left, right, back. Having two USB 3.0 ports is a major plus, because all new hardware & external storage devices  are being produced with USB 3.0 connections, for faster transfer of data. There is also a USB 2.0 eSATA port.
Dell Inspiron n4110 Speakers

The 14R supports an SRS premium sound system. There are two speakers located on the front edge of the base when turned over. These aren't exactly in the best of positions, because when placing the laptop in your lap, you're likely to block the speakers sound.

When fully charged, it can run up to 4 hrs 30 mins. And yes, that's good.

Dell did pack in a lot of software beforehand. Most NOTICEABLY is the Dell stage, which gives easy access to your photos, videos, music. It pops open on your desktop when you startup. Dell also offers online storage.
Additionally there is also McAfee SecurityCenter (30-Days Trial) &  Microsoft® Office Starter 2010 .

The Dell Inspiron is a great laptop for it's price and you won't be disappointed. The idea of changing your lids with just a push of a button is great for personalizing and making your laptop stand out. The Intel Core i5 processor also adds for a smooth experience.
