Dell Latitude E5400 notebook review


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 businesses. The Latitude E5400 sits towards the lower end of the range, with plastics used instead of...

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

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

Offering robust build quality and an excellent keyboard, the Latitude E5400 is made for daily use, and is a comfortable work partner. Support for older peripherals also makes it a great choice for businesses

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.

A decent pc for the price


I ordered this laptop for a friend who needed a new laptop. he is very satisfied as am I. The description has a B Grade: Scratch and Dent. However, when we got laptop it looked A Grade. Couldn't see what made it a B grade.

Decent specs for the price ; Would buy from this seller again

Nothing really bad here

I think replacement period should be extended.

I have bought several laptops, and this is the only one that burned out after only 2 months

It works, but...


Overall what was advertised, but lacking where I need it most. It is refurbished, and meets the specifications listed on the sales page, so I can't be too critical.

Specs are what I'd expected them to be, and what were advertised. Overall reasonable laptop for the cost

The battery is shot. Holds a charge 25, maybe 30, minutes when all settings are set to saving power. Which is problematic, given mobility was the reason I purchased this laptop

Excellent Condition


It has almost everything I want

Windows 7 can't run some of my old games or I just don't know what I am doing
