This Dell Inspiron 7460 Review is summarised through pros and cons of this notebook.

Dell Inspiron 7460 Pros

  • Premium and compact design: Inspiron 7460 sports good design and build quality. Brushed aluminum reinforced with a magnesium alloy top inner frame in addition to diamond-cut edges, give premium feel to this notebook. The ultra thin bezel of display helps to make the notebook compact even though it has 14 inch display screen.
  • Full HD display screen: Dell Inspiron 7460 comes with 14 inch full HD IPS display screen. The screen is vibrant and decently sharp. Viewing angles and color accuracy are satisfactory.
  • Connectivity ports:  While there is a increase in trend of dropping of ports to make the notebook slimmer, Inspiron 7460 sports almost all essential ports such as USB 3.0, Media Card Reader, HDMI, USB 3.0 with power share.
  • Good performance:  As it has 7th Generation Intel Core i5 with NVIDIA GeForce 940MX graphics and 8GB of RAM, this compact notebook provides good day to day performance. The video editing performance was also decent.
  • Keyboard: Inspiron 7460 comes with backlit keyboard. The keys have decent travel. Overall it feels good to type on this keyboard.

Dell Inspiron 7460 Cons

Here are the few things which we didn’t like on this Dell Notebook.

  • Glossy Display screen: This notebook has glossy screen. As a result of it,  it is difficult to use in outdoor. Even in indoors where light source is behind, it is little difficult to read on this screen.
  • No optical drive.
  • Low Sound output: Sound via speakers are decent. But if you are looking for good audio experience, it is better to use external speakers.
