Dell Inspiron Chromebook Design and Build

Base on our available report, it’s in only Urban Gray color variant, the Dell Inspiron Chromebook 14’s entire body (except the keyboard, of course) is made of a finely-polished aluminum chassis. And regardless of the device is being used as a laptop or tablet, the device is bulky and isn’t particularly lightweight (at 1.81 kg).

The rear of the device isn’t exactly exciting either; there a Chrome logo at the top-left corner of the lid and at the center, the Dell logo. The aluminum body adds aesthetic points to the device as well as a bit of ruggedness.

The device’s stylus pen is stowed in the device. Alongside the device’s loudspeaker, you’ll find the pen storage at the front-right side at the bottom. The location of the pen’s storage is decent as it allows easy access to the pen.

However, I do not understand why Dell chose to embed both speakers of the device at the bottom; when used as a laptop, audio quality will be greatly affected as sound will bounce back to the surface the Chromebook is placed and lead to some sort of audio distortion.

Port selection on the Inspiron Chromebook 14 is decent and are evenly distributed to the left and right side of the device. A USB v3.1 Gen 1 Type-C port, micro SD card slot, power button, and volume adjustment keys are housed on the right-hand side of the device. The volume rocker is a great addition, particularly for users who would use the Chromebook mostly as a tablet. On the left-hand side: a full-sized USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A port, a second USB 3.1 Type-C port, and the 3.5mm headphone jack. Another interesting feature of the Dell Inspiron Chromebook 14 is that both USB-C ports on either side can be used to charges the device.

While the chiclet-style keyboard will allow for a smooth typing experience as it comes with decently sized and spaced keys, the key press/travel is equally like that of any Chromebook. For a more convenient typing experience (especially at night), the keyboard of the Inspiron Chromebook 14 is backlit.

However, being a Chrome OS laptop, the keyboard lacks some keys (Windows key, Caps Lock, F-Keys etc.) you might have been used to on Windows laptops and tablets. Also, letters on the keyboard are in lowercase — this isn’t entirely a serious issue but it might feel weird to use at first, particularly if you have used uppercased keyboards for years.

The trackpad, on the other hand, is spacious, has a smooth surface, and clicky.
