The Dell Latitude 14 5410 is a great work tool - but unfortunately it doesn't offer an AMD Ryzen 4000 option
If you look at current business laptops from large manufacturers like HP and Lenovo, the rather limited battery capacity quickly catches the eye. For the Lenovo T series ThinkPads, 57 Wh is the maximum (for the ThinkPad T14s and ThinkPad T15), while current HP EliteBooks of the 800 series offer a maximum of 53 Wh. These two manufacturers seem to be focusing on a thinner case and lower weight instead of on maximum battery capacity.
Dell, the third major manufacturer in the world of business laptops, takes a somewhat different approach. The Dell Latitude 14 7410, for example, is heavier than other business laptops in this price range, but it contains a larger 68 Wh battery.
The same is also true for the considerably less expensive Dell Latitude 14 5410: We also find a battery with a 68 Wh capacity and a slightly higher weight here.
Our extensive test showed that the larger battery is absolutely worth the extra weight. 15 hours in the Wi-Fi test is an extremely strong result. Although the Dell laptop is also thicker than comparable business laptops, it has another advantage in return: Apart from the CPU, the components are not soldered. With two RAM slots, it can be upgraded to up to 64 GB.
So, is the Dell Latitude 14 5410 the perfect work laptop? Unfortunately, no. Dell has unnecessarily limited itself to Intel CPUs for the current Latitude models, and AMD Ryzen 4000 processors are generally not offered. That's a pity, because you can't combine the extremely good battery life with the most efficient and powerful mobile laptop CPUs currently available.
