Dell’s Inspiron 14 laptop lineup is getting an overhaul this summer with the launch of three new models (or five, depending on how you count, since two of the new laptops are available in Intel or AMD versions).

The new Dell Inspiron 14 Plus is the most powerful of the bunch thanks to support for up to an Intel Core i7-12700H processor and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti graphics. But with a starting price of $1299, it’s also the most expensive model in the lineup. There are several more affordable options though.

The new Dell Inspiron 14 5000 series laptops, for example, are available with a choice of Intel Alder Lake-U, Alder Lake-P, or AMD Ryzen 5000 series processors, and up to NVIDIA GeForce MX570 graphics. Prices start at $899.

And the new Dell Inspiron 14 2-in-1 7000 series is a convertible model with a 360-degree hinge, Intel Alder Lake-U or AMD Ryzen 5000 processor options, and a an $849 starting price.

But while the Plus-branded model costs more, it also packs some better specs: it’s the only new model in the lineup to support up to 40GB of RAM, the only model with an HDMI 2.0 port, and the only model with Thunderbolt 4.

Here’s an overview of specs for Dell’s new Inspiron 14 series notebooks:
