Little business partner. Following the positive rating of Dell's Latitude E5450 product line, we tested the 12.5-inch Latitude E5250. However, it did not completely fulfill the high expectations.

The Dell offers reasonable power in a sturdy, well-made body, but its key rivals are better in every area – and they're no more expensive, either, if you opt for comparable specifications. The Lenovo ThinkPad and Dell XPS offer more bang for your buck in conventional laptop categories, so we'd only stick with the Latitude if you specifically need its various business features.

So the question is, should you consider it? If a small, well-built, yet highly functional and comfortable-to-use laptop is needed for your business, then the Latitude E5250 is an excellent choice. We do have some qualms about its screen quality and the speed of its SSD, but unless you need a higher resolution IPS screen, and more overall speed, those things shouldn't bother you.

The Dell Latitude E5250 is a dependable ultraportable that can take all of the dings that come with office and commuting life. It offers good battery life, fairly strong performance and a comfortable keyboard. However, our $1,861 configuration is too expensive for what you get; we suggest starting with the $948 Core i5 model and adding the full-HD touch screen ($217), which brings the total to $1,165.

Source: PC World English
The Latitude 12 E5250 is a capable laptop with state-of-the-art connectivity and good performance. Personally, I’d opt for a Latitude 14 or 15 with a larger display and keyboard at roughly the same weight. But tastes vary, and if you or your business like the Latitude 12 5000 series form factor, and can afford one, by all means.

Great for business users on the go, the 12.5-inch Dell Latitude 12 5000—also known as the E5250—offers just enough performance to get work done in a portable package not much larger than a tablet. Overall, we'd feel better about recommending the Latitude 12 5000 if Dell hadn't just knocked our socks off with the XPS 13.

Comment

Model: The Dell Latitude 12 E5250 is a business oriented laptop that looks the part while packing in capable hardware specifications. The 1.67 kg laptop is extremely portable largely due to the compact design and materials used for construction. The entire chassis comes in a professional black and the front cover is made out of magnesium alloy. All the edges are rounded off for better fit in bags while keyboard and touchpad are tactile and sensitive enough.

There is a 12.5 inch 16:9 TN screen with matte finish to prevent reflections during on-the-go usage. The screen produces good contrast and sharpness but can be found to be subpar when it comes to brightness. At the heart of the Dell Latitude 12 E5250 is an Intel Core i5-4310U processor clocked at 2 GHz, 8 GB DDR3L 1600 MHz RAM and an Intel HD Graphics 4400 GPU. This setup is fully capable for office works and working on the move.

There is a Sanddisk X110 SSD with 256 GB capacity and this greatly improves start-up and response times. Other technology on-board consists of three USB 3.0 ports, a HDMI out, a Display Port out and Bluetooth 4.0. The Dell Latitude 12 E5250 also takes security into serious consideration with features such as a card reader and fingerprint sensor. There is a 40 Wh Lithium-Ion, three cells battery with express charge ensuring power on the go.

Intel HD Graphics 4400:

ULV integrated GPU (GT2) with 20 EUs found on certain Haswell CPU models.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
4310U: Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 2.0 GHz with Turbo Boost support. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
12.5":

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that 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.

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

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.

In 2014, the global market share of Dell laptops was 12.3% and it is 14% in 2016.
73.5%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
