Essential. Conservative usefulness, flying fingers on the touchpad and keys, and old-school interfaces. Whether the new Sandy Bridge Latitude also provides a portion of mobility can be discovered in this review.

The configuration we received will set you back a whopping Rs. 82,747 including taxes and delivery. This puts it in competition with the Lenovo X1 we recently reviewed, which also sold for a similar price. Given a choice between the two, I’d have to go with the Dell Latitude and here’s why. The X1 may be slim and light and have a slightly better keyboard but the heating issue is a big setback in my book. It’s impossible to use the laptop on your lap for a long time which means you’ll have to find a desk or a table to use it on. The Dell Latitude doesn’t have this problem and although it's a bit chunkier, it's just as tough and durable and looks better, as well. It’s not perfect though. Dell could have easily included USB 3.0, an IPS panel for the screen and an option to add a graphics card for this price.

With a price tag of £850 for a 14-inch screen and an Intel Core i5-based configuration that didn't even have an integrated webcam, our 5.6-pound test unit seemed designed for enterprises willing to pay a premium for durability and excellent battery life over portability and video chat support.

Dell's software bundle for its business customers is minimal: You get the starter edition of Roxio Creator and CyberLink's PowerDVD for use with the DVD burner, as well as a couple of network-connection utilities (including the NetWaiting dial-up modem utility, which seems odd since this configuration had no dial-up modem) and Dell's backup, recovery, and data-protection tools.

The Dell Latitude E5420 may not have the same sleek lines and rugged features as the E6320 or E6420, but an incredibly solid build quality, good traditional keyboard, antiglare screen and low starting prices combine to offer a reliable business notebook that won’t break the bank. The ability to work with other Latitude E Family docks and batteries is a big plus, and hopefully your IT guy will spring for a dock and a set of external speakers for your desk.

Dell reviews


Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

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).

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core i3:

2310M:

Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. The CPU is clocked at 2.1 GHz and features the Turbo Boost 2.0 only for the graphics card (650/1100MHz).

Intel Core i5:

2430M: Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. The CPU is clocked at 2.4 GHz (Turbo Boost 2.7-3 GHz) and the GPU at 650 (1200 MHz Turbo).


14.0: 14 inch display size is a mixture between the small formats of subnotebooks and the 15 inch standard display. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.3 kg:

These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 13 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

2.4 kg:

This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


75%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
