Dell Latitude 9510 2-in-1 Review: A 5G 15-inch Convertible That Isn't Huge Or Unwieldy

For the moving office. 15.6-inch screen sizes have traditionally not translated so well into convertible form factors due to the sheer size and weight involved. The Latitude 9510 2-in-1 mostly circumvents this by narrowing the bezels even further and reducing the screen size to 15.0 inches instead.

In previous years, the Dell Latitude family would consist of only the budget Latitude 3000 series, mid-range Latitude 5000 series, and the high-end Latitude 7000 series. For 2020, Dell has introduced the Latitude 9000 series with the intent of offering the absolute thinnest and most feature-packed business laptops that the manufacturer can produce.

Kicking off the new Latitude 9000 line are the 15.0-inch Latitude 9510 clamshell and Latitude 9510 2-in-1. These systems inherit characteristics from the Latitude 7000 series including the unique proximity sensor albeit in an even thinner and sleeker chassis design. Users who prefer a smaller screen size can go with the 14-inch version instead called the Latitude 9410.

SKUs range from the 10th gen Comet Lake-U Core i5-10210U CPU, 8 GB LPDDR3-2133 RAM, 128 GB SSD, and 1080p display for $1600 up to the Core i7-10810U, 16 GB LPDDR3-2133 RAM, 1 TB SSD, and same 1080p display for $2900 USD. Our test unit is a higher-end configuration but without the optional 5G WAN or Smart Card reader.

Competitors in this space include ultra-thin business laptops like the Lenovo X1 Carbon, ThinkPad T15, or the HP EliteBook series

Case

Unlike the Latitude 7310 or 7410 which come in carbon fiber or aluminum options, the Latitude 9510 comes only in aluminum alloy. Its keyboard base feels more rigid than the Lenovo X1 Carbon with only minimal flexing when applying pressure on the keyboard center. Hinges feel firm with no creaking as well especially when compared to what we just experienced on the XPS 17.

We're able to notice slight creaking and flexing when attempting to twist the lid from its two corners. The chassis isn't perfect as a result, but it's still impressive given the limited dimensions.

The system is lighter and smaller than many 15.6-inch business laptops including the Lenovo ThinkPad T15 due to the very narrow bezels and smaller 15.0-inch screen size. Dell is sort of cheating in a way with the smaller display, but we think it works in their favor since it makes tablet mode easier to handle.

Connectivity

We're glad to see a variety of ports available instead of relying solely on USB-C like what's currently happening on the latest XPS laptops. Our main complaint is that both USB-C ports are along the same edge whereas we would have preferred them to be on opposite edges to accommodate charging on either side.

A Smart Card reader is optional, but its presence will preclude the larger 88 Wh battery option.

SD Card Reader

Dell Latitude and XPS systems have some of the fastest SD card readers in the market. Moving 1 GB of pictures from our UHS-II test card to desktop takes about 6 to 7 seconds compared to 14 seconds on the ThinkPad T15.

Communication

The Intel AX201 comes standard for Wi-Fi 6 compatibility. We experienced no connectivty issues when paired to our Netgear RAX200 test router. 

4G LTE and 5G are supported alongside eSIM. The Qualcomm X20 and X55 are included if configured with 4G or 5G, respectively.

Security

Smart Card, fingerprint reader, TPM, vPro, Wedge lock, IR camera, and proximity sensor for Dell ExpressSign-In are all available here. The one option that is not available is a physical webcam shutter which Dell has omitted on the Latitude 9510 2-in-1 but not the Latitude 9510 clamshell.

Maintenance

The bottom panel is secured by 9 Phillips screws for easy servicing. Unfortunately, both RAM and WLAN are soldered and the M.2 SSD itself is protected by a hard-to-remove cover. The second M.2 slot for WAN is missing the antenna meaning users cannot configure a WAN-less SKU at checkout and then install their own WAN module at a future date.

Accessories and Warranty

There are no included extras in the box. Optional accessories are otherwise plentiful ranging from the Dell Premium Active Pen to Thunderbolt 3 docking stations and a carrying sleeve.

Three-year warranty comes standard with options to extend up to five years.

Input Devices

Keyboard

Dell uses the same backlit keyboard across the Latitude 7310, 7410, and 9510 for a sense of consistency between its latest high-end Latitude models. Keys feel uniform in terms of feedback with quiet clatter, but the Space and Enter keys in particular are too loud much like what we experienced on the aforementioned Latitude 7000 models.

Touchpad

The Precision clickpad (~11.5 x 6.8 cm) is slightly larger than the one on the HP Envy x360 15 even though our Dell is the smaller system. The glass surface is smooth with only a bit of sticking for better accuracy when gliding at slower speeds. Feedback from the integrated mouse keys is firmer than on most other laptops including the XPS 15 with both shallow travel and an audible click when pressed.

Display

As Dell's top-of-the-line 15.6-inch business laptop, our system comes with a top-of-the-line 1080p touchscreen that's both brighter and with deeper colors than most less expensive alternatives like the ThinkBook 15. Response times are slower than expected, however, meaning that ghosting is more noticeable even if texts and images are crisp.

* ... smaller is better

Color space covers sRGB entirely and about 65 percent of AdobeRGB to be similar to most consumer Ultrabooks including Dell's own XPS series. The Latitude 9510 isn't a system for creators or video editors so the lack of full AdobeRGB coverage isn't a huge problem.

Further measurements with an X-Rite colorimeter show a poorly calibrated display out of the box with color temperature being far too cool and the color teal being unusually inaccurate. Calibrating the panel ourselves addresses the problem for noticeably better colors and grayscale. We recommend an end-user calibration to get the most out of the display especially since it is capable of accurately reproducing sRGB.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
32 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 16.4 ms rise
↘ 15.6 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 81 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (24.6 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
52.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 25.2 ms rise

The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.9 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 86 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (39 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17927 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

Outdoor visibility is average despite the 400-nit display because of the glossy and glare-heavy screen. Dell should consider adding 1000-nit panel options like on some HP EliteBook models to aid in outdoor conditions. Stay in the shade whenever possible to avoid squinting at texts and images.

Performance

Processor options include only Comet Lake-U up to the uncommon 6-core Core i7-10810U. This processor is essentially the Core i7-10710U but with integrated vPro support so users shouldn't expect it to be run faster. Sadly, there are no AMD Ryzen or Iris Pro options which would have boosted GPU performance significantly.

We didn't experience any software or hardware issues during our time with the test unit. However, we recommend becoming accustomed to the pre-installed Dell Command, Optimizer, Power Manager, and Digital Delivery applications as their settings directly impact system performance and behavior including the unique proximity sensor.

We ran all benchmarks below on Dell's Ultra Performance mode to get the best scores possible. This setting can be found on the Dell Power Manager application.

 

Processor

CPU performance is a mixed bag as shown by our graph below when running CineBench R15 Multi-Thread in a loop. The initial high score of 1064 points would drop to just 640 points by the third loop to represent a significant 40 percent dip in performance. This ultimately means that the system is best for "bursty" workloads instead of high loads for long periods. The unsteady results are reflected by the unsteady clock rates that we will detail in the Stress Test section below. Thus, while the Core i7-10810U is most similar to the Core i7-10710U on paper, it may not perform nearly as well as one might expect on the Latitude 9510 2-in-1.

See our dedicated page on the Core i7-10810U for more technical information and benchmark comparisons.

Storage Devices

The Latitude 9510 utilizes the smaller and less common M.2 2230 slot whereas most other laptops use M.2 2280. The 512 GB Toshiba BG4 NVMe drive in our unit offers theoretical sequential read and write speeds of up to 2200 MB/s and 1400 MB/s, respectively, which we are able to confirm with AS SSD. The more popular Samsung SSD PM981 as found on laptops like the ThinkBook 15 is even faster.

M.2 2230 slot is made difficult to upgrade because of the cover. Additionally, Dell says a second M.2 SSD cannot be installed on the WAN slot because "the connectors are different".

GPU Performance

The old UHD Graphics 620 is still chugging along in 2020 which is perfectly fine for browsing, word processing, Flash games, and 4K video playback. For anything more, we recommend looking elsewhere for dedicated GeForce options or at least an Ice Lake Iris Pro or Zen 2 Radeon RX Vega for significantly better graphics performance.

See our dedicated page on the UHD Graphics 620 for more technical information and benchmark comparisons.

Emissions

System Noise

Latitude 7000 laptops are generally very quiet machines and the Latitude 9510 2-in-1 is no different. Expect the fan to be silent during common loads like browsing or word processing. Running the first benchmark scene of 3DMark 06 would cause fan noise to jump to 33.4 dB(A) halfway through while Prime95 induces a maximum of 39.5 dB(A). Fortunately, the fan powers down rather quickly once the demanding load stops. Unless if you plan on running such high loads on a daily basis, then the laptop will be inaudible almost all of the time.

All fan modes can be found on the Dell Power Manager software.

Surface temperature gradient is mostly symmetrical with hot spots near the center top row of keyboard keys. This area can reach over 40 C when running extreme loads while the palm rests remain relatively cool. In comparison, the Lenovo ThinkBook 15 is always warmest on its left half but with a similar maximum surface temperature of around 42 C.

Stress Test

We stress the system with synthetic loads to identify for any potential throttling or stability issues. When running Prime95, clock rates would boost to 4 GHz for about 10 seconds until hitting 96 C and then drop to 3.2 GHz thereafter. After another minute or so, clock rates and temperature would begin cycling between 1.2 GHz to 2 GHz and 57 C to 68 C, respectively. The roller coaster clock rates when under high processing stress reflect our CineBench loop test results above.

Running on battery power results in slightly slower CPU performance. A 3DMark 11 test on batteries would return Physics and Graphics scores of 8112 and 1952 points, respectively, compared to 10599 and 1947 points when on mains.

Energy Management

Power Consumption

The system is very power efficient during low loads. When idling on desktop, consumption is only about 2 W to 6 W even when set to the maximum display brightness.

We're able to record a maximum consumption of 96.3 W from the small-medium (~13 x 6.5 x 2.3 cm) 90 W AC adapter which is a lot higher than usual for a laptop powered by a Core U-series CPU. However this falls quickly over time due to thermal limits as shown by our graphs below.

Battery Life

52 Wh and 88 Wh capacity options are available with the latter being particularly huge considering the 2-in-1 form factor and power-efficient CPU. Keep in mind that the Smart Card reader is compatible only with the 52 Wh option due to space limitations.

Runtimes are extraordinarily long at over 18 hours of constant real-world WLAN use on our 88 Wh test unit. Runtimes should be about 40 percent shorter with the 52 Wh configuration, but 10 hours of runtime is still more than a full work day. Charging from empty to full capacity takes just 1.5 hours.

Verdict

In review: Dell Latitude 9510 2-in-1. Test unit provided by Dell US
In review: Dell Latitude 9510 2-in-1. Test unit provided by Dell US

The most distinguishing features of the Latitude 9510 2-in-1 are its extraordinarily long runtimes, 5G-enabled wireless, metal chassis, and ease of handling especially for a 15-inch convertible. These attributes make it fit for travelers who want something larger than the typical 13-inch or 14-inch business subnotebook like the HP EliteBook x360 1040 or Lenovo X1 Carbon without sacrificing too much in the way of portability and weight in the process. It's still heavier and larger than the aforementioned HP or Lenovo, but it's definitely smaller than any 15.6-inch convertible for a comfortable middle-ground solution.

As featured-packed as it may be, there are still a couple of options missing. The lack of a webcam shutter for the convertible model is strange especially for a series that focuses so much on security. Additionally, a 1000-nit panel option would help put the system on par with the HP EliteBook x360 series in terms of outdoor viewability.

Users intending to run long and demanding loads should look elsewhere. CPU performance drops sharply after just a few minutes of extreme processing loads and the lack of any Ryzen or additional GPU options will become obvious after running graphics-intensive tasks. The system runs very quietly and with long battery life as result, but the middling processor performance is the price to pay.

Versatile for almost all your in-office and out-of-office needs.. so long as your needs don't involve intensive processing loads. The uncommon 15.0-inch screen size works well for a convertible form factor to be both larger than 14-inch subnotebooks and yet smaller and more portable than the common 15.6-inch alternatives.
