Review Dell Latitude 3440 Notebook


An asocial office playboy. Dell presents the successor of its Vostro 3460 as an affordable office notebook in a snazzy aluminum body. The dedicated graphics also makes the test version interesting for gaming with friends. So much is clear from the...

good display considering the built-in TN panel; relatively stable viewing angles; solid, well-built case; comfortably quiet fan; tireless; successful input devices (after some getting used to it)

somewhat thick and heavy; keyboard layout requires some getting used to; no HDMI; no SD card slot

The very solid and well-made case can be had (in less well-equipped versions) for under 500 Euros (~$685).

Review Dell Latitude 3540 Notebook


Vostro's successor. Dell introduces a new line of laptops with the Latitude 3000 series. We have our hands on the 15.6-inch Latitude 3540. A Haswell ULV processor alongside a matte Full HD screen are to attract both private and professional users. Our...

Good application performance; Decent gaming performance; Matte Full HD screen; Good battery runtimes; Two operating systems (Windows 7/8 Pro); Recovery DVD (Windows 8 Pro only)

No HDMI out; No 3G/LTE modem (cannot be retrofitted); No docking port

Dell omits the digital video port (e.g. HDMI, DisplayPort) in the Latitude. This is inconceivable because every 300 Euros (~$407) laptop sports at least an HDMI port nowadays.

Working on a budget. For around $500 USD, the Latitude 3330 aims

Inexpensive; Sturdy edges and corners; Long battery life with 6-cell battery; Easily serviceable; Relatively quiet keys with deep travel; WWAN options; Matte screen and good outdoor usability

Not as rigid as the more expensive Latitude E series; Low contrast and inaccurate colors; Very small touchpad; No keyboard backlight or higher resolution options; No fingerprint reader or mSATA support; Very warm surface temperatures; Slow HDD and...

The notebook offers good expandability options and hardware for the price.

Compact, solid case; Good workmanship and high-quality Haptik; Extensive connection options; Extensive security and communication features; Bright, outdoor suitable display; Passable heat and loudness emissions in idle/office use; Very good battery...

Touchpad keys need getting used to; Average contrast and viewing angle stability of the display

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 3330 review: The embodiment of a no-frills notebook


This budget offering is no bargain if you expect more than basic productivity.

Budget price ; Attractive design

Mushy keyboard ; Only 2.4GHz Wi-Fi networking

Sleek and lightweight, the budget-priced Dell Latitude 3330 makes a good first impression. But it has difficulty running even the most routine multimedia—much less games—because of its bare-bones...

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...
