How we test - Housing
Even with the connections Dell Inspiron 14z comes with its own way, because all the bushes, but the power supply connection were provided with plastic covers. So you have to connect a cable, only one flap folded down or sideways, so you can reach the port. This rather less widespread system protects the connectors from dust, dirt and sharp objects. In addition, the notebook seems thus more "one-stop" to exist, because the sides of the Inspiron will not be interrupted by the connections. Whether this protection proved to be seen yet.
In the selection of available interfaces surprised Dell with a missing VGA port. This was replaced by a mini-DisplayPort. Also left behind are still found an HDMI and a USB 2.0 port with power charge function when laptop is turned off. Before the vents sits a card reader for SD, MMC and MS. Back is the connection for the AC adapter and the Gigabit LAN port. On the right side there are the DVD burner and behind a common connector for microphone and headphones, and two USB 3.0 ports.
The plugs are all user Dell Inspiron i15R-526MRB-friendly positioned at the back and leave it to work with an external mouse on both sides.
