Dell Latitude E4300

 

At first glance, you might mistake the Dell Latitude E4300 for an earlier-vintage laptop: Its sharp lines and subtle finish stick out in today's world of glossy gadgets with rounded corners. That's not to say the E4300 isn't a handsome portable,...

Excellent keyboard and trackpad ; Good selection of device and expansion ports

Thin, tinny sound from built-in speakers ; Battery sticks out from back of chassis

The E4300 is a solid business or general-purpose laptop with some sweet extra touches.

This stylish 13-inch ultraportable offers great performance and extra-long endurance.

We can't help but compare the Dell Latitude E4300 to another business-oriented, 13-inch ultraportable, the Lenovo ThinkPad X300, as well as its update, the ThinkPad X301. Like the Latitude E4300, the X300 and X301 are both ultra-thin, use SSDs, and...

The Latitude E4300 is one of the two ultraportable laptops in Dell's new E-series release. Designed for business customers, the laptop carries a hefty starting price of The Latitude E4300 is one of the two ultraportable laptops in Dell,834 Canadian...

Good Battery Life of 5-6 Hours ; Superior Customer Service ; Superior Build Quality and Durability ; Good, Snappy Performance ; Relatively Cool and Quiet

Poor Screen Quality Compared to Competitors (See Sony Z and X301) ; Unresponsive, Noisy Keyboard a Step Down from the Latitude D-Series ; Expensive ; Poor Audio Quality

Aesthetically this is the sexiest Dell business laptop yet. Dell’s Customer Service for Small Business has proven its superb care once again. I tried very hard to love this laptop given my positive experiences with the Dell D820, and Dell Business...

Dell Latitude E4300

 

Business ultraportables are revered for what they bring to the table. They are priced at a premium and are expected to meet significant criteria. Since business travel accelerates wear and tear, durability is one of the main objectives. Several hours...

Illuminated keyboard. Color options. Huge hard-drive selection. Very good performance. Dual batteries can be used in tandem. Very good battery life. Rugged. Excellent keyboard

SSDs make it pricey. Stiff pointing stick

The Dell Latitude E4300 is a powerful business ultraportable that lets you choose between a trio of fashionable colors, and its 13-inch widescreen is a first in the Latitude line.

Great price but flawed h/w

 

Got it for a family member. I am the BAD guy now for presenting a gift with a NOTICEABLE flaw...

clean ; un-sctatched ; very readable OS product key ; win7 and not win XP ; did not smell like smoke

Brown blotches on the screen behind the plastic but in front of the LCD panel. This is not dead pixels. It looks like water / moisture of some kind trapped in the display. Looks like the display needs to be DISASSEMBLED, wiped / blown, and the...

Cool little machine

 

For the price, this little laptop was a great buy. Has excellent features that are very helpful to me. I work in the military and the CAC reader built in is great, screen is crystal clear, and always starts up and runs smooth. Very happy with the...

Small, but nice quality display ; Sturdy build, and strong hinges ; Fast Processor, and decent amount of RAM stock ; Nice keyboard feel and layout ; Loaded with Win 7 premium ; Unbelievable battery life ; Card reader built in

Very little video memory, slow on processing graphics

Excellent choice for a mobile, workhorse laptop

 

I've only had the laptop for a week, but the performance has been great so far. I voided the warranty right off the bat by putting in a 120GB Samsung SSD in place of the stock 160GB hard drive, and putting in 8GB of RAM. After installing Linux Mint...

Solid build (mostly, see cons) ; Good stock components ; Excellent keyboard and touchpad layout (Thinkpad-esque) ; Can hardly tell that it's a refurb

Screen bezel seems a bit weak, and there's a "loose" screw-in panel on the bottom that seems to be held in place by stickers. I'd also prefer if the screen snapped into place when closed, rather than just being kept in place by its hinges
