Reviews for the Dell Latitude 13 5300 2-in-1
For a 13.3-inch business convertible, it nails all the right wireless connectivity features including optional Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5, and LTE-A. However, it's still a tad on the heavy side when compared to other convertible subnotebooks in its size class.

Given the Dell Latitude 5300‘s price and features, I wouldn’t recommend it. Although PCMag gave it a rating of 3.5 out of 5, it’s far too expensive to competitive. I see laptops with Intel Core i7 processors and 16GB of RAM on a regular basis that cost less than the Dell Latitude 5300, and those systems would undoubtedly perform better due to their superior hardware.

The Dell Latitude 5300 2-in-1 lacks the wow factor—light weight, aluminum design, and futuristic proximity sensor—of the Latitude 7400 2-in-1. Many business users (or, more accurately stated, IT department managers), however, are willing to cast aside such niceties for a better bottom line. And the 5300 convertible does just that—it drops the flashy aspects of its more spendy sibling to deliver a solid, well-rounded hybrid at a more approachable price. It offers Intel's latest silicon inside a sturdy, compact design that delivers strong performance and tremendous battery life. You may want to date the Latitude 7400 2-in-1, but you'll end up happily married to the Latitude 5300 2-in-1—with your office's budget manager performing the ceremony.

A powerful 2-in-1 system that delivers the latest Intel technology in an interesting form-factor. Surprisingly, it’s upgradable if you need more storage or RAM. Battery life could have been better, but it isn’t dire.
