Dell Latitude 3550-0123 Notebook Review

 

Everything is new. Dell's new entry-level business device comes with a matte IPS display, long battery runtimes and a large maintenance hatch. Priced at almost 900 Euros (~$987), it is not a cheap system though.

bright and high-contrast IPS display, gaming capabilities, good battery runtimes, large maintenance hatch, a lot of storage, runs quiet
