Dell Latitude 13 Education

 

Designed for K-12 students, the Dell Latitude 13 Education Series puts Windows 8.1 Pro in a tough, long-lasting, 13-inch touch-screen notebook.

Long-lasting battery; Loud speakers; Plenty of connectivity options; Durable spill-resistant build

Hefty design; Relatively dim screen; A little pricey

The Latitude 13 Education ($769 as reviewed) is a sturdy laptop that's capable of handling day-to-day functions. Its impressive battery will last you the school day and even through after-school activities. Unfortunately, this notebook's bulk may cause...

The Dell Latitude 13 ultraportable laptop inspires technolust when you first pick it up. It's sleek, it has a great keyboard, and it weighs less than 3.5 pounds without the power brick. The LED-backlit display looks pretty good for most desktop chores....

Great keyboard for getting work done ; Thin and light, with a sleek appearance

Could use more USB ports ; Battery life severely limited

Dell's Latitude 13 is an elegant-looking ultraportable with a great keyboard, but limited expandability and poor battery life are significant drawbacks.

The Dell Latitude 13 is a love-at-first-sight, impulse purchase. It's a razor-thin business laptop that will exceed your design and typing expectations. But there are always consequences for products that push the "unique" envelope. The Latitude 13 is...

Exquisitely thin. Sturdy. Fantastic keyboard and mouse buttons. Fairly priced. Fast hard drive. SSD available. Better-than-expected feature set

Small battery yielded paltry battery life. Battery is non-removable. Performance hampered by a low-powered, aging processor. No HDMI or DisplayPort

The Dell Latitude 13 is for professionals who have a keen taste for design and below-average standards for battery life and performance.

This lightweight, thin companion is for business users who need basic performance and lots of security. Battery life and performance miss the mark, however.

Very thin, light; excellent keyboard; useful Dell software and IT support; mobile-broadband option

Short battery life; slow performance; no docking connector; battery not user-replaceable; no optical drive; no dedicated media keys

Double your display real estate by adding a second monitor. It's a snap: Here's how

Dell Latitude 13 Education Series

 

A water sealed keyboard and Gorilla Glass screen for around £500

Hard-wearing exterior ; Great keyboard ; Impressive battery life ; Rapid Core i5 processor ; Versatile specifications and options

Terrible screen ; Tinny speakers ; Heavy, thick design ; More expensive than rivals

The Latitude is no media laptop, so that means poor speakers. Bass is almost entirely absent, and the mid-range lacks depth – music and games sound crushed together. The high-end is far too tinny. There’s a surprising amount of volume, but that doesn’t...

Dell's MacBook Air equivalent for those who can't afford an Adamo?

The hard drive is a more generous 250GB model, and better still, runs at a speedy 7,200rpm. Upgrading to 320GB costs only £12, while £78 gets you a 64GB SSD. Both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi N are part of the base spec, but a webcam isn't, and will set you...

Dell Latitude 13 review

 

Our configuration of the Dell Latitude 13 impressed with its slim dimensions and good battery life, but its performance was compromised by its sluggish processor and stingy 1GB of RAM.

Great keyboard ; Attractive appearance ; Good build quality

Sluggish performance ; Battery isn't removable

There have been times when Dell should have been imprisoned for crimes against tasteful design, but the Latitude 13 shows that the company can produce a great-looking -- and sturdy -- ultra-portable laptop when it wants to. Our laptop's performance...

Dell pegs the Latitude 13 as an ultrathin business laptop. We think its understated slimline looks will in fact appeal to anyone looking for a well-made near-ultraportable weighing under 1.6kg.

More performance and features can be found for the same money elsewhere. It's far from being a speed demon, but it's quick enough for regular admin work. The Dell Latitude 13 stands out more for its slim profile, low weight yet still sturdy build.

The Dell Latitude 13 is a low power business laptop that, at just 20mm thick and 1.6kg weight, encroaches on ultraportable territory.

More performance and features can be found for the same money elsewhere. It's far from being a speed demon, but it's quick enough for regular admin work. The Dell Latitude 13 stands out more for its slim profile, low weight yet still sturdy build.
