Dell’s Latitude E6520 is a solid, all-around laptop for corporates. It’s far from sexy and some might even say the orange stripe around the keypad is goofy. But this isn’t a machine designed to compete with an Apple MacBook Pro. This is a machine designed to be part of a corporate laptop pool that sits effortlessly on a Windows network and runs typical Windows applications with ease.

Despite a smaller than desired mousepad and the decision to stick with a hybrid style keyboard it is hard to find things we would change on the Latitude E6520. It is great to see a 1080P anti-glare display available as a $130 upgrade for users who need loads of screen real estate while working on the go. While not as sexy as the ThinkPad X1 or as affordable as the Latitude E5420, the E6520 delivers in all the ways a business class notebook should.

The bigger your company, the more important it is to choose the right laptops for your employees. This laptop offers great enterprise-management features, strong performance, a rugged build, and excellent battery life. Given its price and size, it's best for executives with healthy budgets and little need to travel with it.

Overall, the Latitude E6520 ticks all the right boxes for a corporate laptop, with ample performance, a comprehensive set of connectivity options, plus a decent screen and keyboard. Its only real downside is its weight, and even this is not too great a flaw if the system is to be used as a desktop replacement.
