Reviews for the Dell Latitude E6400 XFR

Dell Latitude E6400 XFR Ruggedized Notebook In Review | Notebookcheck
Bulletproof. The Dell Latitude E6400 XFR is the extra robust version of the E6400 business notebook and direct competition to the Panasonic Toughbook CF-19. The XFR can score points with the compatibility of the E6400 and the stable construction. How the "field notebook" turned out in the test, find out in the following report.

Great protection, staggering performance and decent usability. Dell is one of the world's best known laptop manufacturers and makes a broad range of machines for both business and consumer markets. It's impossible not to be impressed by the E6400 XFR, however, and if you want to give your data the best chance of survival in extreme conditions, few laptops are better.

Overall, the E6400 XFR is a deliberately different proposition to competing rugged laptops. It's not best suited to situations where you really need to keep the weight down and it doesn't have the battery life or mission critical ruggedness for the most demanding environments, but it is very powerful, making it a useful alternative for anyone that doesn't want to sacrifice on performance

This fully rugged notebook combines top-notch performance with impressive durability. Those in the market for a fully rugged notebook need something that can hold up to the elements, but it also needs to perform well as a notebook when Mother Nature isn’t abusing it. Dell’s Latitude E6400 XFR combines an already strong business laptop with one of the toughest exteriors we’ve seen. At $5,137, it’s about a grand more than the GD Itronix GD8000, but users can expect significantly better performance—albeit at the expense of battery life. Overall, the E6400 XFR is a very strong rugged notebook, especially for customers who want to purchase all their laptops from a single vendor.

Dell Latitude E6400 XFR Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
The Dell Latitude E6400 XFR is a well built, higher performing, fully rugged notebook. It is based off of the Latitude E6400, with a ruggedized chassis wrapped around it. While it is definitely more rugged than the standard E6400 or E6400 ATG, it may not be as durable as other fully rugged notebooks. Dell chose to use plastic cladding for most of the external panels while other manufacturers use stronger metal panels. The main area of concern with this approach is the cooling fan grill, which showed significant flex, and may be an area that could get damaged in a tumble. The performance of the E6400 XFR is well above other rugged notebooks, but this comes at the cost of battery life

Comment

NVIDIA Quadro NVS 160M: Based on the GeForce 9300M GS but optimized for the stable business use (special drivers and bios). Supports PureVideo HD to help the CPU decode HD videos. Memory speed: 400 MHz GDDR2, 700 MHz GDDR3

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

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


Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).

The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.


P9600:

The P9600 is a middle class dual-core CPU of the Core 2 Duo line and similar to the T9550 (except for the lower TDP of 25 vs 35W). The performance of the P9600 should be sufficient for most applications and games of 2009.

14.1": 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.


3.87 kg: This laptop is heavy below average, compared with the average of notebooks. Therefore especially desktop replacements fit in this class of weight.


Dell: Dell Inc. is a multinational technology corporation that develops, manufactures, sells, and supports personal computers and other computer-related products. Based in Texas, Dell employs more than 82,700 people worldwide (2009). In 2006, Dell purchased the computer hardware manufacturer Alienware. In most countries, the laptops are directly sold to consumers by Dell and each notebook custom-assembled according to a selection of options. Market share regarding sales of personal computers in 2007 (market research IDC): HP 18.9 %, Dell 16.4 %, Acer 9.9 %, Lenovo 7.5 %, Apple 5.7 %

Dell reviews


76.67%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
