Maintenance-friendly work laptop: The Dell Latitude 15 5511
Dell does without the "slim", "super light", and "mobile" marketing phrases for the Latitude 15 5511, but it presents the business laptop as a practical work machine in return.

The design of the Dell Latitude 15 5511 can best be described as "classic". With a thickness of approximately 2.5 centimeters, it's anything but thin, and there's not much of an all-around narrow display bezel to be seen either. In return, the Latitude is extremely robust.

Other advantages of the generously sized case are the numerous ports, whereby there's also room for a microSD, a nano SIM, and a smart card slot. Our test configuration did not include a WWAN module, but the corresponding slot including the antennas is already installed. Since Dell's laptop can be opened very easily, nothing stands in the way of a subsequent configuration. Once opened, users can also access two RAM slots, the SSD, and a reserved slot for a SATA storage drive in the Latitude 15 5511.

The CPU performance of the Intel Core i5-10400H that we tested is also good and can definitely compete with comparable AMD processors. However, since only the internal Intel UHD Graphics 630 is responsible for the graphics, there are no resources left for demanding 3D applications.

Similar to Lenovo's ThinkPads, Dell installs a pointing stick in the Latitude 15 5511 alongside the keyboard and touchpad. This is a very good mouse replacement after some getting used to. We didn't like the display quite as much, as it turns out to be rather mediocre in all aspects. The brightness of 241 cd/m² on average is just about acceptable, and the color-space coverage as well as the contrast ratio are really only suitable for office applications.

However, the Latitude was designed for this very purpose. Therefore, positive points like the mechanical webcam shutter and the extremely good battery life should still be highlighted. Our review reveals what else the Dell Latitude 15 5511 can offer.

I carried out my first IT experiments with a 386-based system and a whole 4 MB RAM. This was followed by work on various PCs and laptops that I maintained and repaired for friends and acquaintances. After training to become a Telecommunications Systems Technician and gaining a few years of experience, I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Industrial Engineering. Currently, I pursue my fascination for IT, technology, and mobile devices by writing reviews and articles for Notebookcheck. I have also worked for Gamestar, Netzwelt, and Golem, among others.

I've been fascinated with technology ever since I got my very first Android smartphone, which was quite a while ago. The power packed into such a small footprint still amazes me. Learning to program made my understanding of technology deeper, and at the same time, it expanded my interest to the area of desktop computers and laptops. All this led me to enjoy reading and watching reviews of new devices, and that's how I stumbled upon Notebookcheck. I immediately found their reviews to be very comprehensive, and luckily, I've even had the chance of translating them since 2019. When it comes to the huge field of technology, I'm currently also interested in specializing in Java programming.
