Dell Latitude E6520

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.

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…

Great for the money.


Great shape for a refurbished. I am very happy would have given 5 eggs if not for the cons below.

Did NOT have a web cam as advertised. Display has some streaks sometimes when scrolling through pages like facebook.

Okay product, annoying problems


The REAL cons I have with this purchase, that are not the fault of the laptop: The specs say this comes with Windows 7 Professional 64-Bit, and comes with a key for that, however, it came pre-installed with Windows 7 Home Premium. Okay, so it's...

-Not too bulky -Good specs for the price
