Very robust construction ; IP65 certification ; Matte display screen suitable for outdoor use

High purchasing price ; High weight ; Grainy image presentation

The bright 14" display is completely suited to outdoor use, however you have to live with a somewhat coarse presentation

Due to the justifiable price and the warranty time with a minimum of 3 years the notebook comes in question for private as well as business clients.

Dell Latitude E6400 XFR Review

 

The Dell Latitude E6400 XFR is a 14.1" rugged business notebook, based off the standard E6400 with a new chassis built around the same internal components to make it rugged and waterproof. The chassis offers completely dust and weatherproof access...

Very fast compared to other rugged notebooks ; Very bright sunlight viewable display ; Optional 12-cell "slice" battery pack

Heavy use of plastic ; High pricetag

The touchpad is recessed into the palmrest, allowing it to be fully weather-sealed against dust and water intrusion. The touchpad surface is very responsive and has minimal lag in our testing. The surface texture is a rough matte finish, providing...

Dell Latitude E6400 Review

 

Unlike the previous generation of Dell Latitude noteboks that featured rounded edges and curves, the Dell Latitude E-series features "down to business" industrial design. The chassis is entirely made of magnesium alloy with plenty of 90-degree edges...

Very tough structure and rugged overall chassis design ; Excellent selection of ports and fantastic docking station ; Excellent battery life ... particularly with extra battery slice ; Solid performance ; Remains very cool where your body comes into...

Industrial design (although cool) looks a little "unfinished ; Build quality is durable, but alloy chassis feels thin in some spots ; ControlPoint software can be frustrating ; Trackpoint/touchpoint is better than the one on the D630, but still not great

Overall, corporate clients who are looking for the next generation of business notebooks from Dell have plenty of reasons to buy the E6400. Dell made every effort to improve the Latitude family, and the E6400 is a great 14-inch business notebook. That...

Dell Latitude E6400

 

The E6400's 14-inch widescreen is as bright as the 14-inch screens on the T400 and the 6930p. And it's matte, too, so you don't get the glare coming from the glossy ones found on consumer laptops. The 1,440-by-900 resolution is the same as you find on...

Trendy brushed-aluminum look. Excellent battery life. Many configuration options. Anti-glare screen. Largest battery on a business laptop. First-rate keyboard and mouse buttons

Palm rests could have used the lid's design treatment. Real aluminum metals would have been more rugged

The E6400 is a major upgrade from the previous D630. Dell has finally added an SD slot, has incorporated a trendier design, and continues to offer its wide selection of configurations and parts.

Dell Latitude E6400 XFR is as tough as they come

 

This black laptop PC is built like a tank and is only slightly lighter. But that weight is mostly armor that protects it from extremes of all sorts.

Extremely tough; backlit keyboard; touch screen

Heavy; expensive
