Those are the three pillars that the Dell Latitude E is built on. Even if a thoroughly efficient graphic solution for the E with a Quadro NVS M graphic card would be available, the notebook concentrates on these core competences in order to offer a good starter price.
How good the Dell Latitude E cuts of in exactly these points you can read in the following test. Following its Due to the shape factor the notebook already finds many interested parties primarily amongst mobile users and traveling business people. Except for the graphic performance the E barely ranks behind the bigger E The Latitude pallet, however, offers even more models which are trimmed particularly in the direction of mobility.
For instance the Latitude E with a Both models have an increased mobility factor due to their measurements and weight. Initial cutbacks become apparent in the offered performance reserves, however. Case Recently we were permitted to take a closer look at the Dell Precision M This is the efficient brother of the E which, having almost the same case, is rather more equipped for performance. A major difference between the two families is the design of the display lid.
Basically, the lid of the Latitude shows as good a stability as the Precision models. When changing the opening angle, though, considerable image changes in the area of the right edge and in the lower left display corner were noticed. Nevertheless, the metal display lid put away higher selective pressure without any problems.
The base unit itself offers a good stability but gives away inconsiderably when selective pressure is applied but not representing a problem for the usage of the notebook, though. We were surprised that the large service lid on the bottom side of the case did not sit very tight, but even clattered somewhat.
After removing the lid, for which only a single screw had to be undone, it turned out that obviously a fastener of the principally extremely robust metal lid had broken off. Besides 3 USB 2. The arrangement of the single ports can be described, as in is the Dell E, as very user friendly, the single connections being on the side edges in the back area, and therefore hardly impairs the left and right working area beside the notebook even when fully occupied. Accordingly, for various extensions merely the offered ExpressCard shaft is left over, in the E The offer is topped with an optionally available Bluetooth 2.
The SmartCard Reader as well as the in our test sample integrated Fingerprint Reader serve the security of your data in the notebook. Thanks to the built in TPM chip this can even be increased, supplying the Dell E with all important security features. Optionally, this package can be extended to 4 years ProSupport, which is a year less than by the Precision series.
In our test device of the E a keyboard with integrated light was built in. This can be helpful in surroundings with not optimal light conditions, for instance in an airplane or in darkened rooms at lectures. The typing experience has to be described as a bit jolting because of the significant pressure point. A possible slight bend of the entire keyboard under pressure was also noticeable. Negative effects affecting typing through this could not be detected, though.
While the touchpad and the TrackPoint could absolutely convince with their response behavior, small improvements are still possible concerning the respective keys.
So it may come to impairments through the surrounding case when using the touchpad keys single handedly, or we found the TrackPoint keys a bit too sticky in our test sample. This may be a strongly differing subjective impression, though. Besides the better overview and the bigger working surface due to the finer resolution, one also benefits from the LED background light, which supplies a particularly high brightness. The suspicion that the same screens are built into the Latitudes as found in the Precision models of the same size was confirmed by our measurements.
