Dell Latitude 13 Education Review

 

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

Dell Latitude 13

 

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.

Dell Latitude 13

 

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

Hands on: Dell Latitude 13 7000 (2016) review

 

The lightest business laptop you could ask for

Many customization options ; Tactile keyboard ; Competent trackpad

Doesn't amaze in any way ; Bigger than other Ultrabooks

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?

Dell Latitude 13 review

 

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.
