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 apparently goes even a step further in view of compatibility. Thus, the various configurations available for the modular bay (additional 30W battery, HDD adapter, optical drive, USB 3.0 adapter) can be swapped throughout Dell's E6x20 notebook...

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.

These nearly identical machines share more than the high performance of Sandybridge processors

Gadgetell Review: Dell Latitude E6520 noteboook

 

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...

Dell's Latitude series has long been a favourite of corporates. Sitting in-between the Vostro series for small businesses and the Precision series for mobile workstation...

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 Latitude E6520 review

 

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...

Decent Computer - Decent Price

 

Great machine overall. Even better price.

Can't beat the specs for the price! This machine new from Dell has to be $1200 or more. We buy tons of Dell laptops and since we found out the NewEgg has refurbed ones for a decent price we have been buying them here! I bought this one personally and...

Battery was no good when it arrived. NewEgg gave me a $25 giftcard for the trouble and the refurbisher sent me a replacement battery ; Screen hinges were a little loose too - I tightend them up

Great Laptop for Price

 

Overall I am very Happy with the Laptop!

This computer is great. I did not come with trail programs all over it. The computer fired right up out of the box and I was brought through the initial Windows 7 set up. Then I was able to add all of my programs to the computer with no problems. I use...

The battery does not last very long, but it just could use a better battery with the laptop. For the most part I am not away from a power supply when I need it, so it hasn't been a very big hassle. I do plan to upgrade this soon though
