Dell Latitude 14 5000 (5480)


Dell's highly configurable Latitude 5480 is a strong rival to its 14-inch business laptop competition, though our near-$2,000 test unit was too much machine for mere spreadsheets and reports.

Colossal quad-core horsepower. Good battery life. Faultless security and manageability.

Gets pricey with options. Slightly dim display. Thunderbolt 3 not standard.

We may be overemphasizing the Latitude 5480's sticker shock: A nice dual-core model with, say, 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD will satisfy most needs for under $1,500, and even companies that crave our unit's mighty power will amortize its cost over...

Speedy performance; Long battery life; Strong Audio; Durable chassis

Dell Latitude 14 5000 (5480) Review and Ratings


By moving to Intel's latest CPUs, the Latitude 5480 makes a strong case against formidable competing machines from Lenovo.

Blazing "Kaby Lake" CPU performance ; Rugged chassis ; Abundant security options

Pricey, in our test configuration ; Screen bezel thick at top and bottom ; Battery not user-replaceable

The Dell Latitude 5480 excels in many areas for business use. It’s rugged enough to stand up to daily business travel. It offers a shopping basket's worth of optional security features to match the level of security your organization desires. And Dell...
