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.

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.

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...

Good Deal!!!


Overall, I am happy with what I believe was a good deal.

Dell computer in perfect cosmetic and working condition. I have owned 3 others of this model (E6520), and have found them to be dependable. This one is off to a good start

Minimal packaging (PC was in cardboard/plastic sleeve inside otherwise empty cardboard box. I was surprised it was not damaged when the box was damaged in transit. I would like to see at least air bags or some additional type of padding

Consumer review by: Darren M. (

it's a off lease descent enough


over all if your looking for something that is low cost to get you to windows 7 this fits the bill works fine not brand new but NEWEGG still gives you a warranty which is good

system was clean booted up fine typical off lease system few minor dings and dents but you can't expect it to be flawless over all I got this for older relative to bring them up to windows 7 so overall no issues

no real bad stuff just minor things drivers did not work that smooth after a web trip to dell downloaded everything I needed was smoother

1080P with 15" display. Appears fairly rugged. Tight hinges. Only one small nick on the inside case corner. Battery about 85% capability (could be worse)

Cheap non-oem charger. DVD player but no burner function. Battery about 85% capacity (could be better) ; Hard disk diagnostics shows 5+ years of wear. This really irks me. I wanted to upgrade to an SSD but the condition of this disk (one of the disk...
