Review: Dell Studio 14 Laptop, India
The new Dell Studio 14 laptop is available in India in 7 vibrant colors.

Looks
It is the Dell Studio 14 laptop. It is obviously very good looking. Available in seven different colors as seen in the photograph above, the Dell Studio 14 looks solid and weighs a light 2.39 kgs. As it is considered to be a high end laptop similar to the XPS series, it does have some features like the XPS such as the wedge shaped contour and the drop barrel hinges. No matter which color of the Dell Studio 14 laptop you buy, it is bound to turn heads. Dell has not designated some of the keys as Fn keys and so the keyboard looks much better.

Left Side of the Dell Studio 14 laptopOn the left side of the Dell Studio 14 Laptop you will see a Wi-Fi Network Locator, slot loading DVD +/- RW drive, Wi Fi catcher switch, USB port and audio ports. If you want, you can also order for and get a Blu Ray disk.

Right Side of the Dell Studio 14 laptopThe right side of the laptop has a two USB ports as interfaces, VGA, 4 pin IEEE 1394 54mm Express Card slot, 8 in 1 memory card reader, a power button and Gigabit Ethernet.

The Dell Studio 14 laptop Screen
The Dell Studio 14 laptop has a 14″ screen. It is also considered to be one of the best gaming monitors at the moment. This screen is a bright glossy screen perfect for watching movies and working indoors in the absence of light. The glossy screen will also attract a lot of dust and you will have to try and keep the screen as clean as possible or the dust will show. There is a 2.0 megapixel camera that works great even in the dark.

Processor
This laptop has the latest Penryn processor T6400 with a 2.0 GHz clockspeed. This is pretty decent and combined with the 4 Gb of RAM that comes with the machine, it is much more than enough for all your basic needs. The only pitfall though is the old Intel 965 GM chipset still being continued with the machine. This hardware does not support 800 MHz FSB speeds. The graphics card is an Intel Integrated Graphics Media Accelerator x3100. The 4500MHD is definitely the latest in graphics cards and this is available in the Dell Studio 15. Apart from this the configuration is pretty much the same in both laptops. The RAM is 4 Gb and hence will support Dual Channel too, providing the best speeds.

Battery Life
The Dell Studio comes with a 6 cell Lithium-Ion battery. With this battery it lasted for two hours and twenty minutes in our battery life test. The LCD was but at 40% brightness, with wireless off and a power saver profile applied to the rest of the functions. We watched a HD movie on the laptop during this time.
Overall
The Dell Studio is perfect for any college student who loves gaming, travels a lot and needs a stylish laptop to go with him. If the Inspiron looks good, the Studio is fast and has a much better body too. The basic difference between the Inspiron and the Studio models of Dell is that Dell Studio is considered to be the one better suited to more graphics, movies and gaming as compared to the Inspiron model.The laptop has been released quite recently in India and a few South East Asian countries. It is available in India at a lumpsum price of Rs. 43,800 INR. You can also read this article on How to buy a Dell laptop in India.
