Review Dell Latitude E6420 ATG Notebook


Handled laptop. Robust laptops are called for on the construction site or terrain. The semi-rugged Latitude is off-road capable without looking like a tank. Will it become the multipurpose weapon for the technician on the move? ...

Very stable chassis ; Protected ports ; Extremely bright, matt screen ; Very quiet and cool ; High application performance with SSD ; User-friendly interface positioning ; Large selection of communication modules ; Large range of services ;...

High weight ; No number pad ; No DisplayPort / USB 3.0 directly on device ; Viewing angle dependency on the vertical plane

The long battery runtime with the "small" 6 cell battery and the low noise level

Incredibly Sturdy Case; High-Quality Metallic Design; Very Good Craftsmanship and Excellent Feel; Conveniently Placed Ports; Many Options for Internet Access Available; Comprehensive Warranty; Comfortable Input Devices; Backlit Keyboard; Bright...

No Displayport or USB3.0 Ports; Low Screen Contrast; Limited Vertical Viewing Angles; High GPU Temperature Possible

Lenovo Thinkpad T420, HP Elitebook 8460p. We can even recommend the Acer Travelmate 8472TG, albeit reluctantly.

Dell Latitude E6420 ATG


The Dell Latitude E6420 ATG is a powerful semi-rugged laptop with stylish looks and all-day battery life but a hefty price tag.

The Dell Latitude E6420 ATG is a semi-rugged laptop that offers exceptional power and battery life and a more durable design than your typical business machine. However, at $3,012, this notebook is quite expensive. In fact, for the price delta between...

Dell Latitude E6420 ATG


What does $3000 get you in a business laptop these days? With the Dell Latitude E6420 ATG, it buys top-flight computing speed and nearly half a day's battery life packed into a feature-rich chassis with a fortified case that might stop some bullets.

Four USB ports ; Supersturdy construction ; Great performance ; Incredible battery life

Heavy for its screen size ; Average gaming scores ; Extremely pricey for a 14-inch laptop

The Dell Latitude E6420 delivers all the power you'd want in a business laptop plus outstanding battery life, but its weight and high price tag make it overkill for mainstream users.

Dell Latitude E6420 ATG Review


If you like the current lineup of Dell business laptops but need something more rugged for use and abuse at work, then Dell's new Latitude E6420 ATG might be the perfect notebook for you. Keep reading to find out more about this semi-rugged laptop. ...

Excellent durability ; Good battery life ; Fantastic expansion options (modular bay)

Expensive ; Heavy like a magnesium alloy brick ; Difficult to upgrade (lots of screws)

If you can look beyond the cost and the weight, what you'll find is a surprisingly durable semi-rugged notebook that can survive just about anything you throw at it (or anything you throw it into) and has the performance and battery life to do just...

Dell Latitude E6420 Review


The Dell Latitude E6420 has a lot going for it: stylish looks, a great keyboard, epic battery life, and solid performance. Our $1,361 review configuration is a bit expensive for what it offers. Nevertheless, this notebook is a really strong choice that...

Stylish, durable design, Great keyboard, Long battery life with nine-cell battery

Dell Latitude E6420-ATG


The triple-metal construction includes a magnesium-alloy skeleton, an anodized aluminum lid, and a powder-coat magnesium-alloy bottom panel. This same metal construction extends to the steel hinges and zinc-alloy latch mechanism. The outer edges of the...

Semi-rugged construction inside and out. Fast Intel Core i7 processor. Almost nine hours of battery life. Adjustable backlit keyboard

Heavy and unwieldy. Expensive

From its semi-rugged construction to its beefy Intel Core i7 processor, the Dell Latitude E6420-ATG is made to take a beating while providing all of the functionality you need from a business laptop.

Dell Latitude E6420


Latitude-branded laptops are dedicated to the most demanding businesses and largest enterprises for a reason: They're fully loaded, with a world of options to choose from. For instance, the Dell Latitude E6420 ($1,788 direct), the company's latest...

Revamped design is nice. Sturdy frame. Wide selection of Intel processors. Backlit keyboard. Great typing experience. Soft mouse buttons. Excellent battery life. Higher-resolution available

Very heavy for a 14-inch laptop. Pointing stick is stiff

The Dell Latitude E6420 is configurable in so many ways because it has so many options to choose from, though it's quite heavy for a 14-inch laptop.
