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.

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

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

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.
