In our test, the Dell Latitude 14 5410 can convince us primarily with two aspects: Upgradeability and battery life. But because Dell insists on only offering Intel CPUs, we can't give the Dell laptop an absolute recommendation.

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.

I was an ardent reader of Notebookcheck’s laptop reviews even back in school. After writing reviews as a hobby, I then joined Notebookcheck in 2016 and have worked on device reviews and news articles ever since then. My personal interest lies more with laptops than smartphones, with business laptops being the most interesting category for me. Technology should make our lives and work easier and good laptops are an essential tool for that to happen. This is why laptop reviews are not just my work but are also my passion.

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.
