Dell Latitude E6500

 

The Dell Latitude E is a glimpse into the future of laptops. With high expandability, configurability and a strong design, it should suit most corporate environments.

The Latitude E6500 is - as ever from Dell - highly configurable, and the base price, while it might be attractive, will almost certainly not be what most people end up paying. However, the ability to ...

A let down !!!

 

I bought this Dell Latitude E6500 (with Vista Ultimate 64bit OS) and a docking station in November 2008. This is the fourth Dell Latitude laptop I owned. I was quite happy with the previous laptops, however, this one was a problem from the beginning....
