Dell Latitude 14 5411: A lot of performance in the 14-inch laptop
The case of the Dell Latitude 14 5411 is a bit thicker than the competition for a modern 14-inch device. In return, it's made of very sturdy plastic and appears extremely stable. There's also enough room for a Gigabit LAN port and a smart card reader. A SIM slot is located underneath the microSD card slot as well, which makes working over mobile networks possible in combination with the optional WWAN module.
Thanks to the good maintenance options, the WWAN can also be retrofitted. The same applies to RAM, for which two memory slots are available. In our test configuration, only one of them was occupied by a 16 GB module. In addition, there was a 512 GB SSD.
The actual system performance is provided by an Intel Core i7-10850H that was able to deliver its performance well in our test. Instead of just the internal graphics unit, an Nvidia GeForce MX250 is also available for displaying image content. This also allows running games at low to medium resolutions and graphics settings. However, we could also perceive noise coming from the SSD during read and write operations in addition to the uniform noise of the fans. At 8:30 hours, battery life was good in our real-world WLAN test.
From our point of view, the display should undergo a significant improvement. With an average brightness of 236 cd/m², not only is it dimmer than comparable rivals, but it has a relatively low color-space coverage as well. For business users looking for a higher CPU and GPU performance in a compact and stable laptop, the latter points of criticism should play a minor role though.
