Dell Latitude 15 5510: Either-or with mass storage
With the Latitude 15 5510, Dell offers a solid Office notebook with optional business features. This includes a Smartcard reader as well as an optional WWAN modul, which users can add subsequentially thanks to the already installed antennas. The 16 GB of RAM are installed in single-channel mode in our test unit but thanks to the two RAM slots, it can be extended and configured in dual-channel mode by the user.
The 512 GB NVMe SSD sits in an M.2-Slot. There is also a SATA port but for some inexplicable reason the M.2 bay also blocks the SATA bay which makes the installation of a secondary storage device impossible. A real design faux-pas which should have been avoided.
With the rest of the hardware, users can execute Office applications and simple image editing programs without problems. However, under heavy load, the Intel Core i5-10310U can't sustain its performance. The fan works quietly but the core clock rates cannot be stabilized over time when the system is stressed.
Beyond that, the Dell notebook scores with a very good battery life. It achieves around 10.5 hours in our practical WLAN test. Hence, mobile users with intensive writing tasks should get an eyeful of the Latitude 15 5510. What buyers of this laptop are to be expected of the device is shown in our full review of the Dell Latitude 15 5510.
