Dell Inspiron 14 Plus 7420 laptop review: For power users on a budget

14-inch rapid multi-tasker. The Inspiron 14 Plus packs a lot of power for a 14-inch laptop with its 12th gen Core-H CPU and GeForce RTX graphics. It’s a good solution for users who want something more powerful than a standard Ultrabook yet cheaper than an Asus Zephyrus G14 or Razer Blade 14.

Dell has introduced three separate 14-inch Inspiron 14 7420 models for 2022: the standard Inspiron 14 7420, Inspiron 14 7420 2-in-1, and Inspiron 14 7420 Plus. This review focuses on the Plus model which carries much faster Core H-series processors and discrete Nvidia GeForce RTX graphics designed for power users dissatisfied with the usual Core-U series Ultrabooks.

Our specific review unit comes with the Alder Lake-H Core i7-12700H CPU and GeForce RTX 3050 GPU for approximately $1400 USD retail. Other SKUs with the Core i5-12500H, RTX 3050 Ti or integrated graphics, and smaller 54 Wh battery are planned, but all configurations come with the same 2.2K 2240 x 1400 resolution panel.

Competitors include other high-performance 14-inch laptops like the Asus VivoBook Pro 14, HP Pavilion 14 Plus, Schenker Vision 14, HP Envy 14, or the Lenovo IdeaPad 5 Pro 14. The Razer Blade 14 and Asus Zephyrus G14 can also be considered alternatives, but they are significantly more expensive.

Note: The manufacturer may use components from different suppliers including display panels, drives or memory sticks with similar specifications.

The chassis can be best described as a smaller version of the Inspiron 16 7620 Plus since they both share the same visual design language. The materials used for the metal chassis and layer of Mylar over the clickpad and palm rests are similar to the larger Inspiron as a result. It’s a smooth matte feel from top to bottom that almost mimics the smooth metal outer lid of an XPS 15.

The weakest aspect of the skeleton is perhaps the lid as it twists quite readily. Minor creaking is audible when twisting the base and applying pressure on the keyboard center will slightly warp its surface as well. Though this model retails for almost as much as a Dell XPS 15, don’t expect it to be built as strongly as one.

One might expect the Inspiron 14 Plus 7620 to be larger and heavier than the Inspiron 14 7620 2-in-1, but that’s not really the case. Its footprint is identical to the 2-in-1 version while being just a hair thicker and heavier despite the significantly more powerful hardware inside. Nonetheless, it’s still heavier and larger than most other 14-inch laptops like the HP Envy 14, Asus Zenbook 14X, or Schenker Vision 14 all of which also carry discrete Nvidia graphics.

Port options are identical to the Inspiron 16 Plus 7620 albeit the full-size SD reader has been swapped for a smaller microSD one. We appreciate the support for Thunderbolt 4 as neither the competing HP Pavilion Plus 14 nor Asus Vivobook Pro 14 OLED support Thunderbolt even though they have USB-C ports.

Transfer rates from the integrated spring-loaded MicroSD reader are slow much like what we observed on the Inspiron 14 7420 2-in-1. Moving 1 GB of pictures from our UHS-II test card to desktop takes about 45 seconds.

An Intel AX211 comes standard for Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity. Though we experienced no issues when paired to our 6 GHz network, transmit rates would be slightly more unsteady than receive rates as shown by the graph below.

the 2 MP webcam offers a similar picture quality as the 2 MP webcam on the standard Inspiron 14 7420 2-in-1. A physical privacy shutter comes standard while Windows Hello and IR are not supported.

The bottom panel pops off fairly easily with a Philips screwdriver and a sharp plastic edge. Once inside, users can service the battery, 1x M.2 2280 storage slot, 1x DDR5 SODIMM slot, and M.2 WLAN module. Note that 8 GB of RAM comes soldered on all SKUs meaning users can add just a single module for a maximum RAM capacity of 40 GB.

There are no extras in the box other than the AC adapter and paperwork. The usual one-year limited warranty applies if purchased in the US.

The typing experience is the same as on the Inspiron 16 Plus 7620, Inspiron 16 7620 2-in-1, or Inspiron 14 7420 2-in-1 as all four models share the same keyboard keys and Mylar clickpad. Even the primary and secondary key symbols and size of the clickpad (11.5 x 8 cm)are identical between the models regardless of any screen size differences. In short, the keys have adequate feedback and moderate clatter save for the Space key which feels a bit too shallow. Similarly, the clickpad surface works reliably for standard cursor control while its integrated keys are too soft and spongy when dragging and dropping.

While other 14-inch laptops typically aim for 1200p, 1800p, or 2160p native resolutions, the Inspiron 14 Plus 7420 come standard with a relatively uncommon 2.2K or 2240 x 1400 panel instead. Core attributes are otherwise solid including the full sRGB coverage, ~1000:1 contrast ratio, and decent response times for its size class. It’s a bummer that OLED or glossy options aren’t available to boost colors or sharpness even further.

The display is not calibrated at factory and so its colors are not as accurate as they could be. Color temperature in particular is too warm at around 6000 compared to the 6500 target of the sRGB standard. After a proper calibration with our X-Rite colorimeter, average grayscale and color DeltaE values would improve from 3.6 and 2.23 to just 0.8 and 0.63, respectively. We recommend an end-user calibration to fully exploit the 100 percent sRGB coverage of the panel.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession – a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.

Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 19845 (minimum: 5 – maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Outdoor visibility is underwhelming as the display averages only 300 nits at its maximum setting. You’ll want to work under shade whenever possible if outdoors or the screen becomes washed out under brighter ambient lighting. The MSI Summit E14 carries a significantly brighter screen while still offering discrete GPU options in comparison.

We set our unit Ultra Performance mode via the My Dell software prior to running any benchmarks below. It’s recommended that owners become familiar with My Dell as it serves as a portal to warranty support, battery charging behavior, system performance, and more as shown by the screenshots below.

Standard Optimus is supported for switching between the integrated and discrete GeForce RTX 3050 GPUs. Advanced Optimus, MUX, and WhisperMode are not supported.

CPU performance can be analyzed from a glass half full or glass half empty perspective. From the pessimistic point of view, the 45 W Core i7-12700H in the Dell is somewhat disappointing as its multi-thread performance is about 10 percent slower than other laptops equipped with the same processor. From the optimistic point of view, the Dell is significantly faster than most other 14-inch laptops where 15 W, 25 W, or 35 W CPUs are more common. This is one of the smaller laptops you can get with the Core i7-12700H, but the flip side is that its Turbo Boost performance is subsequently more limited when compared to larger laptops with the same processor option. After all, the Core i7-12700H is frequently found on full-fledged gaming laptops as well. The 16-inch Lenovo Legion Slim 7 with the same CPU, for example, offers 30 percent faster performance than our Inspiron 14 Plus.

The limited Turbo Boost performance of our CPU can be demonstrated by running CineBench R15 xT in a loop. As shown by the graph below, our initial score of 2410 points would dip by 21 percent by the third or fourth loop to represent a notable performance drop.

PCMark 10 results are excellent and higher than even competitors like the Schenker Vision 14 with faster RTX 3050 Ti graphics or the Asus Vivobook Pro 14 with the AMD Ryzen 5600H CPU. There’s no doubt that the Core i7-12700H is playing a huge part in boosting the overall performance of the Inspiron 14 Plus 7420 over most other 14-inch multimedia laptops.

Our unit ships with a 512 GB SK Hynix BC711 PCIe3 NVMe SSD offering sequential read rates of up to 3600 MB/s. The drive would exhibit no performance throttling issues when running DiskSpd in a loop as it comes with its own heat spreader pre-installed. In comparison, most other OEMs do not include one with their budget or even midrange laptop models. It would have been nice to see faster PCIe4 options on the Inspiron 14 Plus 7420, however.

Model supports just one M.2 drive of up to 80 mm in length with no secondary options. A copper heat spreader is included to aid in cooling

Graphics performance is where we expect it to be relative to other laptops with the same GeForce RTX 3050 GPU. In fact, results are pretty much on par with the RTX 3050 Ti as found on the Schenker Vision 14 or Asus ROG Flow Z13. Dell may introduce SKUs with the RTX 3050 Ti in the near future, but we don’t recommend it as it will likely just be marginally faster than our base RTX 3050 SKU at best.

Users upgrading from the much older GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q will see significant improvements of about 50 percent.

Keep in mind that graphics performance is reduced if running on Dell Optimized mode instead of Dell Ultra Performance mode. A Fire Strike test on Optimized mode would return a graphics score of 10966 points compared to 12125 points when on Ultra Performance mode.

The twin fans in the system are sensitive to high loads. When initiating 3DMark 06, for example, fan noise would pick up quickly before stabilizing at around 47 dB(A) towards the end of the first benchmark scene compared to 43 dB(A) on the Schenker Vision 14 or 35 dB(A) on the HP Envy 14 each with discrete GeForce graphics.

Running games on Ultra Performance mode would result in a fan noise of almost 52 dB(A) which is comparable to many dedicated gaming laptops with faster graphics. Fan noise would drop to 48 dB(A) if gaming on Dell Optimized mode instead, but this entails a small cut to graphics performance as mentioned above. Thus, users must endure the maximum RPMs of the fans if they wish to squeeze the full 50 W power envelope of the GeForce GPU.

Thankfully, the fans are pretty quiet at 26.5 dB(A) against a silent background of 23.2 dB(A) during more mundane tasks like web browsing or video streaming. Only when higher loads are introduced will they begin to ramp up very quickly.

Surface temperatures when idling are warm at around 28 C on both the top and bottom which is similar to other thin multimedia laptops with discrete graphics like the Asus Vivobook Pro 14 or Schenker Vision 14. When gaming, hot spots can reach just over 40 C near the keyboard center and rear of the chassis while the pam rests remain more comfortable at the sub 30 C range. Hot spots here are generally cooler than on the aforementioned Asus or Schenker which can can reach 45 C to 55 C.

Running Prime95 to stress the CPU would cause clock rates, temperature, and board power draw to spike to 3.5 GHz, 100 C, and 80 W, respectively, for about 10 seconds or so. Thereafter, clock rates, temperature, and board power draw would steadily decline before stabilizing at 1.9 GHz, 80 C, and 38 W, respectively, in order to keep temperatures in check. The performance drop is relatively steep as the HP Pavilion Plus 14 with the same CPU is able to maintain a faster 2.2 to 2.9 GHz range when subjected to the same test.

Running Witcher 3 shows the GeForce GPU stabilizing at 1590 MHz, 74 C, and 50 W. In comparison, the RTX 3050 Ti in the larger Inspiron 16 Plus would stabilize at 1627 MHz, 84 C, and 63 W. Core temperatures are unsurprisingly high since this is one of the few 14-inch laptops to come with both a Core H-series CPU and a GeForce RTX GPU. Changing the power profile from Ultra Performance to Optimized will drop the GPU power draw to around 45 W or less.

Running on battery power limits performance. A Fire Strike test on batteries would return Physics and Graphics scores of just 9493 and 7637 points, respectively, compared to 26940 and 12125 points when on mains.

Power consumption on Power Saver mode ranges between 6 W if on the minimum brightness setting to 10 W if on the maximum setting. Changing the power profile to Ultra Performance mode with the Nvidia GPU active raises the idling power consumption to 20 W which is about twice that of most slower 14-inch laptops powered by U-series CPUs.

Gaming demands between 96 W and 106 W compared to just 40 W or 50 W on traditional U-series-powered alternatives. The Intel 12th gen H-series is known to be very demanding on top of an already demanding discrete GPU. Thus, it’s no wonder that the Inspiron 14 Plus runs both louder and warmer than the average 14-inch laptop.

We’re able to record a maximum draw of 137 W from the medium-sized (~15.3 x 7.5 x 2.6 cm) 130 W AC adapter when running both Prime95 and FurMark simultaneously. Consumption tends to cycle between 110 W and 137 W as shown by our screenshot below. Expect a slower charge rate if running such taxing loads.

Runtimes are better than expected at over 7 hours of real-world WLAN usage which is very close to what we recorded on the slower Inspiron 14 7420 2-in-1 with no dedicated graphics at all. However, note that our results reflect only the 64 Wh configuration and not the lesser 54 Wh configuration which should have slightly shorter battery life.

Charging from empty to full capacity with the included barrel AC adapter takes about 2 hours. Charging via third-party USB-C AC adapters is supported.

In review: Dell Inspiron 14 Plus 7420. Test unit provided by Dell

If you’re looking to maximize CPU and GPU performance on your next 14-inch laptop, then consider the pricier Razer Blade 14 or Asus Zephyrus G14. If you’re looking for a thin-and-light 14-inch Ultrabook, then the Asus Zenbook 14 or LG Gram 14 may be better options. For the best of both worlds, however, the Dell Inspiron 14 Plus 7420 rides a fine line between extreme performance and portability while keeping prices at reasonable levels. Frequent travelers who rely on performance beyond what the Core U-series and integrated graphics series can offer will find the Dell to be a solid solution.

Packing this much power into a 14-inch chassis comes with the usual drawbacks: warmer temperatures, louder fan noise, heavier weight, and higher power consumption than most other laptops in the 14-inch category. Of these four disadvantages, we believe weight could be improved upon the most as the competing Asus Vivobook Pro 14 ships with AMD H-series CPUs and the same GeForce RTX 3050 GPU while weighing a couple hundred grams lighter. The fans are at least excellent at staying quiet during lower processing loads and so they are only loud when running demanding applications.

The Inspiron 14 Plus 7420 may be heavy, but it’ll get the job done at faster speeds than your typical Ultrabook.

Other drawbacks include the spongy clickpad and flexible lid. For such a heavy 14-inch laptop, a more rigid lid would have been appreciated. The performance advantage over most 14-inch laptops in this price range is otherwise the main highlight of the system.

The Inspiron 14 Plus 7420 clamshell is now shipping on Amazon and Newegg For $1300 and $1400 USD, respectively. However, configurations are currently limited to integrated graphics only. We recommend purchasing directly from Dell if you want the GeForce RTX 3050 SKU.
