Dell - Latitude E6500

 

The Latitude E6500 is - as ever from Dell - highly configurable, and the base price, while it might be attractive, will almost certainly not be what most people end up paying. However, the ability to ...

This is a nice laptop with some good features coming as standard. We love the backlit keyboard and screen auto brightness control. Just be aware that you probably won't stick close to the base price if you start configuring this laptop to your own spec.

Dell Latitude E6500

 

The Dell Latitude E is a glimpse into the future of laptops. With high expandability, configurable and a strong design, it should suit most corporate environments.

High resolution, high quality screen ; Back-lit keyboard ; Dual-navigation ; eSATA ; PCMCIA and Express Card ; Ambient light sensor

Lack of dedicated numpad ; Mouse software not as configurable as it could be ; Air vent on left-hand side instead of rear

The Dell Latitude E is a glimpse into the future of laptops. The gauntlet has been thrown. Toshiba, Lenovo, Fujitsu — your turn.
