Dell Latitude 2100 Netbook

 

We take a look at Dell's durable "student-rugged" netbook, which offers a rubber coating and touch-screen to set it apart from the crowd.

Dell Latitude 2100 review

 

Dell is aiming to market the Dell Latitude 2100 at students and schoolchildren - and the 2100 certainly looks like it's built for that group. The spine of the netbook (the outside back of the battery) has a little plastic strip for personalising the...

The child-oriented Dell Latitude 2100 netbook is certainly a neat idea and is decently executed, but is it rugged enough to rise to the occasion?

Dell - Latitude 2100

 

The latest addition to Dell's Latitude line of business notebooks is the diminutive 2100, but Dell's latest netbook isn't only aimed at business types: the company is also aiming it at the highly lucrative education segment. ...

In many ways, the Latitude 2100 is Dell's best netbook to date, with some interesting options such as the touchscreen and choice of operating systems. Well built to withstand the knocks and bumps of life on the road or in the classroom, this does mean...

Dell Latitude 2100

 

If you can bargain for the right spec Latitude 2100 at the right price, you'll have an excellent netbook and one we prefer to Dell's 'consumer' version.

Its rather angular design aside, we think the Latitude 2100 is the best Dell netbook to date. The rubberised coating should ensure long-term survival even in the hands of nippers, while the option of 2GB of Ram, the revised SD card slot design and the...

Dell Latitude 2100 review

 

Dell sees its Latitudes as the Swiss army knife of laptops. But the market is evolving, and the multihued, kid-friendly Dell Latitude 2100 netbook models are the latest attempt to appeal to a younger crowd.

The child-oriented Dell Latitude 2100 netbook is certainly a neat idea and is decently executed, but is it rugged enough to rise to the occasion?

Dell Latitude 2100 netbook

 

A ruggedised 10.1in Dell netbook designed specifically for students

Competitive price, touch screen, rugged chassis, long battery life, comfortable keyboard

802.11n wireless networking isn't standard, touch screen not sensitive at extreme edges, no on-screen volume indicator

Armed with an Intel Atom N270 CPU, 1.5GB of RAM and an 80GB hard drive, the Dell Latitude 2100 performs well. Thanks to its 6-cell battery it also lasts a long time away from an outlet. It's a comfortable netbook to use and its rugged design should...

Review: Dell Latitude 2100

 

It may be designed for children, but that doesn't mean the Latitude 2100 can't be enjoyed by big kids too.

Cool, tough rubber exterior coating. Adult-sized keyboard also accommodates the smallest hands. Responsive trackpad. Snappy performance. Clear window on front of chassis meant for student’s name tag

Tattletale web browsing light a little too Big Brother for our tastes. Optional extras drive up the price tag quickly. Chunky monkey power adapter

Dell Latitude 2100

 

Families, don't be surprised if you see the Dell Latitude 2100 show up in a classroom near you. As I've written in the past, Dell is aggressively targeting the K-8 education market with this line of rugged-looking netbooks. At the time I played with a...

A good touchscreen implementation ; Rugged-like

Big and bulky ; Skimps on hard drive space

Dell courts classrooms with this Latitude's kid-friendly touchscreen, but the big-boned netbook skimps on space.

Dell Latitude 2100

 

The Dell Latitude 2100 starts at $369, and will be configurable on Dell.com. While our $484 review unit came with a 16GB SSD and six-cell battery, other models will come with mechanical hard drives up to 250GB and three-cell batteries. Customers will...
