Reviews for the Dell Latitude 3340 Education Series

73% Review Dell Latitude 3340 Notebook | Notebookcheck
Studious. Commonplace plastic barebones, hard-rubber bezel, and the most basic technology. But a battery runtime of 14 hours and more! Who would buy such a laptop for a not exactly bargain price? Perhaps universities or colleges will be interested?

The Dell Latitude 13 Education Series should certainly be on your short list when shopping for a moderately priced laptop for your K-12 student. Other systems may have faster processors or more memory, but the Latitude 13 Education has a ten-hour battery life and is designed to be a durable companion for the next few years (and then some). It's our new Editors' Choice for entry-level desktop replacement laptops.

The Dell works well for education: the strong, rubberised exterior make it tough, there's a Gorilla Glass screen, the keyboard is excellent and the battery life is class-leading. It's also got broad configuration options, which is important for this type of machine. This Latitude isn't expensive, and that does mean downsides.

The Latitude 13 Education ($769 as reviewed) is a sturdy laptop that's capable of handling day-to-day functions. Its impressive battery will last you the school day and even through after-school activities. Unfortunately, this notebook's bulk may cause teens some grief, and the performance could be better for the price.

Laptops designed for education are rare, but Dell has worked hard to ensure that this machine will stand up to classrooms: the tough, rubberised chassis, Gorilla Glass screen, fantastic keyboard and ample battery life all work in its favour. The poor quality screen is problematic, but if you can look past this it's a smart laptop that it's a good option if you need a rugged laptop for a child that won't break the bank.

80% Dell Latitude 3340 review: a 'built for school' laptop that provides good value for money
Source: PC Advisor English
It may not be the most stylish laptop around, and the viewing angles of its screen have room for improvement, but the Latitude 3340 provides good value for money. Its application performance and battery life are as good as you'll get for less than £600, and Dell's on-site support should provide peace of mind for schools and small businesses that require kit at a competitive price.

13.3": This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Netbooks, UMPC and some subnotebooks have tinier displays. Nevertheless, the majority of standard laptops has a higher format. The advantage of a small display is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.773 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 12 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
