Review Dell Latitude E6520 i5/HD Notebook

 

Core Business. Productively focusing on your work is to be made possible with a Latitude E6520. In review: The basic version with an i5-2410M CPU, incorporated graphics and HD display. You can find out why "Very Good" was missed slightly in this review.

Very good input devices, AR treated display, Many interfaces including docking & E-module ports, Part of the interfaces on the rear, Wide opening hinges, Good battery runtimes, Low power consumption, Quiet and cool, The keyboard's clear key drop and...

Weak contrasts & viewing angles, High weight, Contrast and resolution – but that's available for a surcharge

Dell Latitude E6520

 

The bigger your company, the more important it is to choose the right laptops for your employees. If you own or work for a big business (one with 500 employees or more), your laptop needs are likely very different than if you worked at a small or...

Very good performance ; Excellent battery life ; Ruggedly built ; Strong enterprise IT management features

Expensive ; Bulky and heavy

This laptop offers great enterprise-management features, strong performance, a rugged build, and excellent battery life. Given its price and size, it's best for executives with healthy budgets and little need to travel with it.

What is being reviewed? Up for review today is the Dell Latitude E6520, a 15 inch notebook that (if you ask us) is sporting a…

While we are not necessarily fans of the overall size of the notebook in terms of portability, that is something that would arrive with any 15.6 inch notebook. Not to mention, we suspect that plenty of notebook users rarely if ever take their computer...

The Latitude E6520 is also big and heavy, so it’s probably not the best choice for road warriors or other users who frequently carry their laptop around. But for executives who occasionally need to take their office system home or to another site, it’s...

Dell's Latitude E6520 is a mainstream corporate laptop based on Intel's new generation of Core processors, offering a decent-sized screen and keyboard in addition to the security and management benefits of Intel's vPro technologies, plus a host of...

Sturdy build with magnesium alloy frame, large 15.6in display, good performance, comprehensive connectivity options

Heavy, relatively pricey

The Latitude E6520 is a sturdy, well-built corporate laptop that looks stylish and provides all the features required for a desktop replacement system. It's somewhat heavy, and pricey compared to some rivals, but should serve well as a mainstream...

DELL E6520

 

Bought it to supplement an aging business PC with low demands. Have to say it will suffice for it's intended function. Rated a 4 Egg due to no webcam and smaller capacity HD. Unexpectedly, however, it does have a full HD screen (1920x1080). Computer is...

Intel i5 Processor, Windows 7, Great Price

3rd Generation Intel i5, No webcam, only a 320GB HD. Many laptops in this price range generally come with a Webcam and at least a 500GB HD

Dell E6520

 

For those of us that work on their own equipment the pros out weigh the cons. This is a fairly snappy laptop without a new SSD 8Gb DDR3 Corsair Vengeance and with it makes for a very good user experience. There is ALOT of OEM parts on the web (backlit...

High res 1080 screen, 2.5 Ghz i5 with ht, has something called Optimus which uses a Nvidia NVS 4200m GPU along with Intel's HD3000 GPU. The Nvidia chip will do some light to moderate gaming and u can switch within Windows as to which is the primary GPU...

Heavy 5.5 lbs, only USB 2.0 as the unit I received was a early 2011 Model. Hard drive was set up as raid so after cloning to SSD AHCI wont work even with the regedit work around. No backup media to reinstall OS

Dell E6520 Intel i7

 

Using this to support multiple monitors in an office setup. Purchase a docking station to ensure you have enough USB and monitor plug-ins. You can purchase refurb docking stations for around 60.

High performing laptop at a reasonable price. Machine I received looked very close to new. SSD drive ensures machine quickness, no heat build up and no noise. Has fresh copy of Win7 Pro and no additional bloatware
