The Dell Inspiron 13 7348 (734858500iST) is a quality laptop for those who want the functionalities of a tablet and a laptop in one. It comes with a high quality display for having pleasurable viewing and navigating experience. It also boasts of powerful performance but comes at a price.
I bought this directly from Dell store and have used it for about a month. Here are my impressions:Things I like: -Ample RAM -Display Quality -Light weight -Small(ish) charger -Decent CPU -Good lookingThings I hate: -Flimsy body -Very loud fan -Keyboard is horrible to type on -4-5 hour battery life -Pathetic stylus -Touchpad rattlesAnother point to keep in mind is that Dell is supposedly shipping this with its newer keyboard technology and their are reports about faulty keys. My machine has a dead alt key and the right half of keyboard goes unresponsive from time to time.
My Requirement - A sleek, light weight, future proof laptop with no compromise on performance with a Windows based OS. DELL Inspiron 7348 delivers the above and more in an impressive 2 in 1 package.Have been using this laptop for over 3 months now. Bought directly from dell store in the initial launch days of this laptop.Pros :- 1) Its Sleek and Elegant with good Finish. Although the body is made of plastic yet it feels premium. Everybody loved it at the First glance. 2) Performance is good. I use this laptop for some coding and media playback usage. The laptop is fast dosen't lag on playing bluray videos as well. Pretty much handles everything you throw at It. PS - haven't tried gaming on this laptop since it dosen't have a external graphic card, so can't really comment on what all games it can support 3) Ofcourse the touch screen, which is mostly of use while browsing through Windows Interface or while playing videos. Not really useful all the times since it is not a capacitive one, so you need to press a lil and be a little precise with your touches.For Precision Guarantee - you have a stylus which is a great addition to the laptop and comes of great use while using it in tablet mode.4) 360 degree rotatable hinges, Very useful while watching movies, using lappy in tablet mode. No problem is setting lappy in any degree setting. Support lappy well.5) Backlit Keyboard 6) Decent Battery Backup. 7) StartUp time is real quick.Cons - 1) Heats Up too early (Not so Major). I was surprised to smell a foul burning smell initially with laptop geating heated up and Shut down automatically. didnt face the issue much though, works fine if not placed on mattress for long durations (since it somewhat covers up the exhaust vents )2) Slight lack of brightness at edges of the screen, Not too much noticeable though yet you can see it on a white background. 3) TouchPad & touchscreen could have been a lil better. 4) Speakers are Ok, not exciting. Most IMP - This laptop is famous for ghost touches issue on touchscreen (many reviews online), However I haven't observed any ghost touches on my inspiron as of now. Verdict - Its a great Windows based 2 in 1 with good specs, priced at decent money.Value for Money good utility 2 in 1.
