Dell Latitude 13 Education Series

 

A water sealed keyboard and Gorilla Glass screen for around £500

Hard-wearing exterior ; Great keyboard ; Impressive battery life ; Rapid Core i5 processor ; Versatile specifications and options

Terrible screen ; Tinny speakers ; Heavy, thick design ; More expensive than rivals

The Latitude is no media laptop, so that means poor speakers. Bass is almost entirely absent, and the mid-range lacks depth – music and games sound crushed together. The high-end is far too tinny. There’s a surprising amount of volume, but that doesn’t...

Dell's MacBook Air equivalent for those who can't afford an Adamo?

Dell Latitude 13 3000 Series 2-in-1 (3379)

 

The Dell Latitude 13 3000 Series 2-in-1 (3379) won't break any speed or battery life records, but it's a competent and affordable business 2-in-1 with a sharp touch display, a good selection of ports, and a sturdy and aesthetically pleasing design.

Appealing pricing. High-quality, attractive metal body. High-quality full HD touch display.

Battery life is short for the category. So-so keyboard.

Conclusion The best qualities of the Dell Latitude 13 3000 Series 2-in-1 (3379) are its affordability, and its build and design, which look and feel attractive and high-end. The screen is a bright point, even at 1080p, and aside from some quibbles with...

Dell Latitude 13 7000 (7370)

 

Though it's an eye-catching business laptop laden with little bulk, the Dell Latitude 13 7000 (7370) does not offer performance to complement its high price.

Impressively thin, light, and quiet. Attractive design.

Expensive. Unexceptional performance.

Conclusion Blending the performance you need with the profile you want is a challenge for all PC manufacturers, and it's not one Dell has completely met with the Latitude 13 7000 (7370). You get the muted upscale looks, of course, and the overall...

Dell Latitude 13

 

The Dell Latitude 13 ultraportable laptop inspires technolust when you first pick it up. It's sleek, it has a great keyboard, and it weighs less than 3.5 pounds without the power brick. The LED-backlit display looks pretty good for most desktop chores....

Great keyboard for getting work done ; Thin and light, with a sleek appearance

Could use more USB ports ; Battery life severely limited

Dell's Latitude 13 is an elegant-looking ultraportable with a great keyboard, but limited expandability and poor battery life are significant drawbacks.

Dell Latitude 13

 

The Dell Latitude 13 is a razor thin business laptop that will exceed your design and typing expectations, but don't expect too much from the tiny battery.

Exquisitely thin. Sturdy. Fantastic keyboard and mouse buttons. Fairly priced. Fast hard drive. SSD available. Better-than-expected feature set.

Small battery yielded paltry battery life. Battery is non-removable. Performance hampered by a low-powered, aging processor. No HDMI or DisplayPort.

Dell Latitude 13 3000 2-in-1 (3379) Review

 

If you use your laptop to give presentations or want to get some work done on a tablet, a 2-in-1 is the device for you. The Dell Latitude 13 3000 2-in-1 ($699 to start; $899 as reviewed) gives you the flexibility to work in four different modes and...

USB Type-C; Affordable; Loud speakers

Uncomfortable keyboard and trackpad; Not MIL-STD-810G tested for durability

The Dell Latitude 13 3000 2-in-1 has support for USB Type-C, but its keyboard and trackpad are uncomfortable to use.

Dell Latitude 13 7370

 

Business laptops have been getting sexier and thinner, and Dell is taking that to the extreme with the $1,743 Latitude 13 7370 ($1,299 starting price). This notebook sports the same striking, bezel-free display as the XPS 13, giving you a 13-inch...

Beautiful design; Vivid Infinity display; Strong port selection;

More expensive than competing machines; Slower performance than the competition; Below-average battery life; Awkward webcam

The Dell Latitude 13 7370 is a beautiful and durable business notebook with a great display.

Dell Latitude 13 Education Review

 

Designed for K-12 students, the Dell Latitude 13 Education Series puts Windows 8.1 Pro in a tough, long-lasting, 13-inch touch-screen notebook.

Long-lasting battery; Loud speakers; Plenty of connectivity options; Durable, spill-resistant build

Hefty design; Relatively dim screen; A little pricey

Designed for K-12 students, the Dell Latitude 13 Education Series puts Windows 8.1 Pro in a tough, long-lasting, 13-inch touch-screen notebook.

Dell Latitude 13 7000 review

 

XPS-styled notebook is in a (business) class of its own

Thin and light ; Tactile keyboard ; Great port selection

Core M only ; Pricey ; Unusual webcam position

With a compact chassis, excellent keyboard and great build quality, the Latitude 13 7370 is the Windows laptop to take on the road. It's not exactly a powerhouse thanks to Intel's Core M chip inside, so don't expect it to be the fastest business brain...
