Dell Latitude 2100 review

 

Are Dell's school laptops a class act?

Lots of options and features ; Great usability

A little bulky ; Can get a little pricey

This laptop's customisability and decent performance mean that it's a great choice for students - or anyone else

Dell Latitude 2100 review

 

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 review: Dell Latitude 2100

 

Dell Latitude 2100

Rugged design with rubber cover; touch-screen option.

Tiny keyboard; big and heavy for a Netbook.

Aimed primarily at school kids, the Dell Latitude 2100 is an interesting new take on the Netbook. It's worth a look if the unique features--including an especially rugged design and a touch screen--are important to you.

Dell Latitude 2100 Review

 

Dell's Latitude 2100 provides students with a netbook that is durable and comfortable to use. The $499 asking price is a bit steep for a 10-inch netbook, even one that's this rugged, but Dell will presumably offer volume discounts to those who purchase...

Student-rugged design, Unique education features, Comfortable keyboard with antimicrobial option, Speedy performance

Larger and heavier than most netbooks, Below-average battery life

Review Dell Latitude 2100 Netbook

 

Mobile class room Connoisseurs are well acquainted with Dell's La

Robust and resistant case; Long battery life; Well-equipped; Good keyboard; Many options; Availble with Linux; Many support options; Silent system noise

High weight; Bulky design; Adverse interface arrangement; Lurid indicator-LEDs; Small touch screen; low-contrast display, not outdoor-capable; difficult to upgrade/maintain

You should take a look at the Asus EeePC T91, the Gigabyte Touchnote T1028x, the Wortmann Terra Mobile Edu III, and the Unimall Classmate, which all come with a touch display.

Dell Latitude 2100

 

The Latitude 2100 is an interesting answer to customising for the needs of schools. As a by-product, Dell has created a robust little netbook that can just as easily be tossed around by any techie who likes to work roughly.

Quite rugged, Business level warranty, Good keyboard, Gigabit Ethernet, Decent battery life

Network activity light isn't very granular, 576-pixel screen height can be limiting, Polarising looks

Expert Review

 

The Latitude 2100 is one of the most durable netbooks we've used, and its touch screen is a nice addition, but you'll pay a premium for both features.

Tough construction, Excellent keyboard, Network-activity light, Available touch screen

Expensive, Thick design, Limited vertical resolution
