The Dell Inspiron 14R can be considered as the premium version of the Inspiron 14. With more options in the form of graphics cards, memory and wifi card. It is smaller than the 15.6'' Inspiron 15R, the only difference between them are the smaller screen size of the 14R and two USB2.0 ports as opposed to the three found in the larger 17R and 15R.  In addition to the extra options, an eSATA/USB combo port have to added in place of an USB 2.0 port (now 2X USB2.0). With these small revisions the Inpsiron 14R is thicker and the weight has increased by 0.4lbs over the Inspiron 14. Windows 7 Home basic and Windows 7 Ultimate (both 64-bit) have been added to the list along side the existing Windows 7 Home Premium and Professional. Many features remains the same with the 720p HD WLED display, Blu-Ray drive option and two 2 W speakers. The Inspiron 14R offers more flexibility than the Inspiron 14 in terms of configurations. The Inspiron 14 manages to retain many of the 15R features whilst being lighter and smaller. It is aimed at buyers who are looking for a budget notebook with good portability and battery life.
