Dell Inspiron 14R China Edition (Ins14TD-1628)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi there,

I do see a lot of discussions about Ultrabook-alike notebooks capable of gaming around here. This model has been never mentioned. Me beeing currently located in Shanghai and without something to play with the Dell wakened my interest.

Let's cut the crap, this is about:

- Intel Core i5-3210M
- NVIDIA GeForce GT 640M DDR3 2GB
- 14.0"(35.6cm) HD+ WLED True-Life (1600x900)
- 6 GB DDR3 SDRAM,1600 MHz
- 750GB, 7200RPM SATA
- 2.38kg, 28.88-31.62mm thick, full-size backlit chiclet keyboard, 3*USB 3.0
- about 940$

Besides this specc there is also another version with an Intel Core i7-3612QM and a 1000GB, 5400RPM HDD available. I don't need a QuadCore and a 5400RPM HDD would piss me off every day.

It's tempting to spend a lot of money on a great Gaming Laptop, but I don't think this is necessary. I will miss my SSD a lot though. I believe this is the cheapest combination of a GeForce GT 640M and a 1600x900 resolution on a 14" notebook.

Also there is no review out there, but I did found some pictures:

That is on the fat end of the ultrabooks. But its rare to get a dedicated GPU. Do you really need the GPU?

Other options are the Sony S13 Premium (HD+ IPS screen option~) and the Gigabyte U2442N (GT 650M and GT640M versions available~ with slim profile and HD+ screen again.)

A GT640+ I need 4sure. I want to game with it in the end too. Otherwise I would just get a slim ultrabook.

The Sony is very expensive and the Gigabyte seems not available around here as I recall.
