Dell Latitude E6420 XFR

 

For those who work in harsher environments than an office or classroom, the Dell Latitude E6420 XFR fully-rugged laptop is built to go off the road and protect your data.

Ultra-rugged design. Core i7 CPU and SSD combo makes for speedy performance. Bluetooth helps connects your wireless peripherals. WiMAX will help keep you connected wherever your work takes you. Backlit keyboard.

Pricey. Laptop gets hot.

Dell Latitude E6420 ATG

 

What does $3000 get you in a business laptop these days? With the Dell Latitude E6420 ATG, it buys top-flight computing speed and nearly half a day's battery life packed into a feature-rich chassis with a fortified case that might stop some bullets.

Four USB ports ; Supersturdy construction ; Great performance ; Incredible battery life

Heavy for its screen size ; Average gaming scores ; Extremely pricey for a 14-inch laptop

The Dell Latitude E6420 delivers all the power you'd want in a business laptop plus outstanding battery life, but its weight and high price tag make it overkill for mainstream users.

Dell Latitude E6420

 

The Dell Latitude E6420 can be outrageously powerful (for a steep price) or run the bare essentials yet still be a competent business laptop.

Revamped design is nice. Sturdy frame. Wide selection of Intel processors. Backlit keyboard. Great typing experience. Soft mouse buttons. Excellent battery life. Higher-resolution available.

Very heavy for a 14-inch laptop. Pointing stick is stiff.

Dell Latitude E6420-ATG

 

The triple-metal construction includes a magnesium-alloy skeleton, an anodized aluminum lid, and a powder-coat magnesium-alloy bottom panel. This same metal construction extends to the steel hinges and zinc-alloy latch mechanism. The outer edges of the...

Semi-rugged construction inside and out. Fast Intel Core i7 processor. Almost nine hours of battery life. Adjustable backlit keyboard

Heavy and unwieldy. Expensive

From its semi-rugged construction to its beefy Intel Core i7 processor, the Dell Latitude E6420-ATG is made to take a beating while providing all of the functionality you need from a business laptop.

Review Dell Latitude E6420 ATG Notebook

 

Handled laptop. Robust laptops are called for on the construction

Very stable chassis; Protected ports; Extremely bright, matt screen; Very quiet and cool; High application performance with SSD; User-friendly interface positioning; Large selection of communication modules; Large range of services; Typing-friendly...

High weight; No number pad; No DisplayPort / USB 3.0 directly on device; Viewing angle dependency on the vertical plane

If you have reasons for a semi-ruggedized notebook, you luckily don't have to choose from hundreds of models. In addition to Panasonic (Toughbook C1), only Getac (S400) and Wortmann (TERRA Mobile INDUSTRY 1280) offer corresponding devices. However,...

Dell Latitude E6420 business laptop

 

Dell Latitude E6420 review: A well built 15.6in laptop with good speed, but it could use more features for the price

Performance ; Build quality ; Keyboard

Lacks USB 3.0 ; Could use more features ; 64-bit Windows has to be specified

The Latitude E6420 is a well built business machine with good performance. However, it could use a few more standard features for the price (such as USB 3.0) and we also wish that Dell supplied both the 32-bit and 64-bit Windows 7 versions in the...
