Review Dell Latitude E5540 Notebook


Moonlighter. The new generation of Dell's office workhorse, the Latitude E5540, is clad in a black, 15.6-inch suit and with a power-efficient Intel Core i5 processor. Is it a must for the office?

Dell Precision 15 5540 review – a thin and light tool for professionals


Dell seems to be really proud of its 15-inch XPS laptop design, as they not only used it for the XPS 15 7590 for the fifth year in a row, but they also use it do build the Precision 5540 around it.…

High price;Gets warm on the outside under heavy load;Uses aggressive PWM to adjust the brightness until 140 nits (our Health-Guard profile fixes that) (SHP14BA (MWP1T-LQ156M1))

Bit on the heavy side.

The SSD and the I5 makes this a very fast laptop, sadly I had to experience this through a secondary monitor since the Back-light was burnt out

This Laptop comes with windows 8 not windows 7 Pro. There is no secondary disk in the box to switch operating systems either

good customer service


This computer has a solid-state hybrid drive, I am not an expert but I believe it is a little misleading to put it as SSD. Those are not really solid state, as far as I know. (I hope newegg will correct this comment, or the info on the website)

Good technical support

This is my second review on this computer. I increased the rating by one star just because of the customer service I received from dell for the past 2 days. The send me software to solve the problems i was having with the touchpad, and when it did not...
