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?

If you’re looking for a laptop with all-day battery life predominantly to be used for work, the Latitude 3340 is a more than competent choice. It’s slightly let down by its poor screen, which is a real shame but if your work doesn’t require accurate colours you’ll be able to get by. If you want better performance, and don’t mind sacrificing some battery life, the Dell Inspiron 15 5000 is a better choice.

The Dell Latitude 3340 is not a notebook you will long to own for its sense of style. However, its tough design, incredible battery life and reasonable price make it a great option for the intended educational market. We would have liked to see options for 8GB RAM and a higher-resolution screen with better viewing angles, but nevertheless, this is a notebook that suits its school and child orientation very well.

Like all laptops, the Latitude 13 is about compromise, about finding a balance among performance, battery life, cost, and portability. Its durable construction makes it a few ounces heavier than we'd like at 4.1 pounds, but otherwise it pretty much hits the sweet spot, offering decent performance and over 10 hours of battery life for an attractive price.

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":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

1.773 kg:
