Review Dell Latitude 2100 Netbook


Mobile class room Connoisseurs are well acquainted with Dell's La ...

Robust and resistant case ; Long battery life ; Well-equipped ; Good keyboard ; Many options ; Availble with Linux ; Many support options ; Silent system noise

High weight ; Bulky design ; Adverse interface arrangement ; Lurid indicator-LEDs ; Small touch screen ; low-contrast display, not outdoor-capable ; difficult to upgrade/maintain

That Dell even in this class offers that many configuration, warranty, and support options

Hands-On: Dell Latitude 2100 Netbook in Review


School netbook. Dell would like to capture the market of schools ...

Thanks to the good keyboard and the specific features, the Latitude seems to be well fit for the intended field of deployment. It could be an acquisition worth recommending for notebook classes

Kid-Friendly Netbook Has Grown-Up Chops


It may be designed for children, but that doesn't mean the Latitude 2100 can't be enjoyed by big kids too.

Dell Latitude 2100


Families, don't be surprised if you see the Dell Latitude 2100 show up in a classroom near you. As I've written in the past, Dell is aggressively targeting the K-8 education market with this line of rugged-looking netbooks. At the time I played with a...

A good touchscreen implementation ; Rugged-like

Big and bulky ; Skimps on hard drive space

Dell courts classrooms with this Latitude's kid-friendly touchscreen, but the big-boned netbook skimps on space.

Super rugged netbook ; Easy quick access controls ; Good battery life

Thick and heavy ; No high-resolution screen option ; Touchscreen without tablet convertibility

Dell Latitude 2100 - A Review of the Dell Latitude 2100


Student-rugged design, Unique education features, Comfortable keyboard with antimicrobial option, Speedy performance

Larger and heavier than most netbooks, Below-average battery life

Above the display is a 1.3-megapixel Webcam, which provided extremely clear images in a Skype video chat. A colleague saw little motion blur when we quickly waved and could even make out facial details. The microphone on our unit did not work.

Dell Latitude 2100 Netbook Review


The development of netbook market is very rapid, and the whole network market pay attention to the students, while student netbooks perform not so well. Dell netbooks' performance on the market is good to some extent such as Dell Inspiron mini 9 and...

Dell Latitude 2100 comes with a 3-cell battery which is 11.1V and 2800 Whr, in the battery life test, the 3-cell battery just can last for about 3 hours.

Dell Latitude 2100


The Latitude 2100 is one of the most durable netbooks we've used, and its touch screen is a nice addition, but you'll pay a premium for both features.

Tough construction; excellent keyboard; network-activity light; available touch screen

Expensive; thick design; limited vertical resolution

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

Dell Latitude 2100 netbook


Dell's Latitude 2100 is designed specifically for school students, but it's available for everyone. It's the first netbook we have seen to feature a t...

Competitive price, touch screen, rugged chassis, long battery life, comfortable keyboard

802.11n wireless networking isn't standard, touch screen not sensitive at extreme edges, no on-screen volume indicator

Armed with an Intel Atom N270 CPU, 1.5GB of RAM and an 80GB hard drive, the Dell Latitude 2100 performs well. Thanks to its 6-cell battery it also lasts a long time away from an outlet. It's a comfortable netbook to use and its rugged design should...
