Dell Latitude E5400 review

 

Dell's business laptop offers power and connectivity

Great build and usability ; Excellent value for money ; Good connectivity

Not very portable ; Could do with some more features for a business machine

It doesn't hit the spot for portability, but this business laptop is a good all-rounder

Dell Latitude E5400 notebook - Pocket-lint

 

Dell's Latitude E-series may not offer the most exciting laptops on the market, but they're reliable, strong and great for small, medium and large

Good value for money, outstanding keyboard, good screen and quality

Looks dull, bulky, lacks the high-end feel of more expensive machines

A good choice for corporate users on a strict budget, the Latitude E5400 is unlikely to excite, but it’s still a highly usable and well-made machine. Further backed by decent performance, a great keyboard and a useful amount of ports, it comes highly...

Dell Latitude E5400 review

 

First off, as is the case with most Dell notebooks, design matters. Despite its all-black industrial design, the Dell Latitude E5400's looks aren't lacklustre. With a metallic hinge and latch system, Dell has improved stability and security of the...

For a 14-inch laptop, the Dell Latitude E5400 weighs 2.56kg and is well worthy of your choice for a business laptop.

Dell Latitude E 5400 Notebook

 

We had been eagerly waiting to lay our hands on the E5400 for a while, mainly because of two reasons: first, being amongst the first notebooks to be based on the new Centrino 2 platform and second, being pitched as a true no-nonsense business notebook.

A terrific business notebook that would do well to sport a webcam for video conferencing.

Can't beat the price

 

Some scuffs and scratches on the outside surface only. The screen was scratch free!

Received a better model than expected for the same price. Dropped more RAM on it and it is working great! =)

None thus far.
