Dell Latitude E6400 14.1in Business Notebook


Dell is bound to sell loads of these things, but would you want to use one? Andy finds out. Now with video review.

A powerful, flexible, sturdy and well designed portable all-rounder, the Dell Latitude E6400's design and functionality caters very well to the needs of a wide range of users, be they relatively undemanding users who want something practical and long...

Dell Latitude E6400 14in business laptop


Black and angular, Dell's new Latitude offers the styling of a ThinkPad and the performance of Centrino 2.

With its angular black mittel-Europa executive styling - BMW rather than Lexus - the Latitude E6400 certainly looks the part of a serious business machine. It provides all the connectivity - network and peripheral - you could wish for and decent...

Dell Latitude E6400


Dell's new business laptop is an unmitigated success, says Sasha Muller.

We caught our first glimpse of Dell's new Latitude E-series when we came face to face with its semi-ruggedised E6400 ATG laptop. With a suitably burly build and plenty of carefully focussed business features, it was a promising debut for the range....

Dell Latitude E6400 ATG


Dell's Latitude E-series is finally here. Sasha Muller takes an exclusive first look at Dell's semi-ruggedised E6400 ATG laptop.

It wasn't so long ago that we clapped eyes and hands on Dell's newly-redesigned Vostro range of laptops, designed expressly for the needs of smaller businesses. Now comes the turn of its premium business range, and the launch of Dell's latest Latitude...

Dell Latitude E6400 ATG


Semi-rugged laptop for professionals.

Semi-rugged design, touch screen, backlit keyboard, solid-state drive, dual-band 802.11n Wi-Fi, ambient light sensor

Ports aren't dust-proof, no ExpressCard slot, touchpad can't be disabled by a Fn key combination

The ATG should satisfy users who are after a well-performing, semi-rugged notebook, but more demanding users who are looking for a unit to use in a very dusty area might want something that has dust-protected ports and slots as well.

Dell Latitude E6400


Style and speed.

Performance, usability, looks great, excellent screen, chock-full of cool features

Heats up, no ExpressCard slot, may inspire insane jealousy among others

This notebook ticks pretty much every box: style, speed, connectivity (including Gigabit Ethernet, Bluetooth and 802.11a/g/n Wi-Fi) and usability. It packs in plenty of business-friendly features, including a smartcard reader and a fingerprint scanner....

Dell Latitude E6400


A trendier design and tons of configuration options make the Dell Latitude E6400 leaps-and-bounds-better than the previous D630.

Trendy brushed-aluminum look. Excellent battery life. Many configuration options. Anti-glare screen. Largest battery on a business laptop. First-rate keyboard and mouse buttons.

Palm rests could have used the lid's design treatment. Real aluminum metals would have been more rugged.

Dell Latitude E6400 Review


Unlike the previous generation of Dell Latitude noteboks that featured rounded edges and curves, the Dell Latitude E-series features "down to business" industrial design. The chassis is entirely made of magnesium alloy with plenty of 90-degree edges...

Very tough structure and rugged overall chassis design ; Excellent selection of ports and fantastic docking station ; Excellent battery life ... particularly with extra battery slice ; Solid performance ; Remains very cool where your body comes into...

Industrial design (although cool) looks a little "unfinished ; Build quality is durable, but alloy chassis feels thin in some spots ; ControlPoint software can be frustrating ; Trackpoint/touchpoint is better than the one on the D630, but still not great

Overall, corporate clients who are looking for the next generation of business notebooks from Dell have plenty of reasons to buy the E6400. Dell made every effort to improve the Latitude family, and the E6400 is a great 14-inch business notebook. That...
