Reviews for the Dell Latitude E6500
Full Metall Jacket. Like many other manufacturers, Dell also launches several new models on time for the start of new Intel Centrino 2 platform primarily in the business area. The E6500 series is thought primarily for professional office users with an increased mobility need and high quality demand. With the high-quality magnesium case the notebook sets the bar particularly high in respect to stability, for the competition.

This is a nice laptop with some good features coming as standard. We love the backlit keyboard and screen auto brightness control. Just be aware that you probably won't stick close to the base price if you start configuring this laptop to your own spec.

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.
