Reviews for the Dell Latitude 3330
Working on a budget. For around $500 USD, the Latitude 3330 aims for students and small business users on a budget who may not want the fancy features of a typical Latitude E series model. But what else has the model sacrificed to get to that low of a price point? We take a closer look at the most affordable Latitude yet.

Sleek and lightweight, the budget-priced Dell Latitude 3330 makes a good first impression. But it has difficulty running even the most routine multimedia—much less games—because of its bare-bones infrastructure.

Dell intends its Latitude 3330 for small business and education, and its reasonable performance and battery life are good enough for these markets. The screen, build quality and design are all average, though, and the Latitude isn’t any cheaper than rivals.

Let's step back for a second. Our job here is not necessarily to say if a notebook is fast or loaded or revolutionary. We need to convey such things as appropriate, but ultimately we need to make a call on value—does a device carry high or low total value for its target audience? The Latitude 3330 is neither fast nor loaded nor revolutionary.

In real-world terms, the across-the-board low scores it produced in our benchmark translate to longer wait times for basic computing operations, such as installing apps, editing digital photos, and decompressing zipped files. The lag may not be too bothersome if you merely need to write letters and term papers, run simple spreadsheets, check email, and catch up on news in a browser.

Dell offers multiple customization options that can make the Latitude 3330 less expensive—and even less powerful. This notebook will fulfill a student’s or business traveler’s most basic needs, but buyers should be prepared to accept subpar performance for even routine Web multimedia.

Though it's not the fastest budget laptop on the market, the Dell Latitude 3300 offers a compelling user experience for the money because of its light weight, best-in-class keyboard, accurate touchpad and colorful screen. If you want better performance and are willing to carry a larger laptop, consider the 14-inch ThinkPad Edge E431, a slightly updated version of the ThinkPad Edge E430 we tested last year.

Dell designed the Latitude 3330 for students and small business use. Several features make it perfect for this use, e.g. the sturdy built. Durability is a good selling point when students have to lug the machine around daily. Its square edges and matte silver coating, along with black touches make it look like it could withstand some hard knocks. It’s also priced just about right for this crowd. The machine looks like common laptops of a few years ago. There are no super sleek and shiny bits, no backlit keyboard, no touch screen or lit-up logo on the lid. The design is plain and functional.
The keyboard is possibly its main selling point. It is big, feels nice to the touch and is sturdy. It is perfect for long hours of typing. The screen is nothing to shout about with 1366x768 pixel resolution and decent but less than dazzling colors. The Dell Latitude 3330 may come in a few different hardware configurations, but they all hold one thing in common. They are at the lower end of what is available, and will be underpowered compared to most machines out there on the market. But on a positive note - the battery will last decently long. It still can't compare to some of the top power saving ultrabooks out there, but it does last. At the end of the day, there are much better machines than the Dell Latitude 3330 out there at this price range.
Intel HD Graphics 3000: Integrated graphics card in the Intel Sandy Bridge processors (Core ix-2xxx). The HD 3000 is the faster (internally GT2 called) version with 12 Execution Units (EUs).
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
2375M: Power efficient ULV processor clocked at 1.5 GHz without Turbo boost. Offers an integrated HD 3000 clocked at slow 350 / 1000 MHz and a DDR3-1333 memory controller. The difference to the similar Core i3-2377M is just the lack of Small Business Advantage (SBA) support (needed for the Ultrabook logo).» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
