Review Dell Latitude E5500 Notebook

 

Business Trabant. Latitude E6500 and E5500 – those are the names

Plain business design; Good stability despite plastic chassis; User friendly positioning of the connections; Docking port; Outdoor suitable display; Interesting start price; Very low noise and temperature emissions; Good battery life, already with a...

Moderate ergnomics due to construction height; No UTMS option; Moderate illumination of the display; Brief warranty ex factory

But as soon as you try to update the laptop to the E6500 level (various services, three year warranty, …) you come quickly to the same price level of over 1000.00 Euros which, in turn, brings the consumer quickly close to the E6500.

Perfect Business Laptop

 

Have been using the E series latitudes since they were released. Found the E5500 the best on performance, features and price. The large screen and light weight are a plus. Accessories are great. Can choose between a laptop or monitor stand. Spot on...

Terrific machine!

 

Most people who do reviews seem to be complaining, so I wanted to take the time to add my thoughts. So far this laptop is terrific! I bought it thinking most people who bother to write a review do so only after having problems. The machine I bought,...

Does not live up to expectation

 

I have now used this machine for the last 6 months and so far I have replaced, the hard drive, the keyboard (twice), the biometric finger sensor (three times), and have exchanged the battery once. This is not a machine for serious business. That is...

Good solid laptop

 

This machine (with P8600 processor) provides nearly the same computing power as my desktop with E6600, but burns much less power, stays very cool and is quiet. It came with XP Pro and Vista, so I could use XP. Battery life is great. I've used it for...

will real 5500 please stand up?

 

I was getting ready to pull the trigger on this one but noticed that the Latitude comparison picture looks just like the 6500, but when you take a closer look it's not the same and a bit clunkier looking. I believe the comparison page photo is not...
