The Intel i7-6600U is one of the fastest running ultra low voltage processors of the year 2015 and offers enough power for demanding multimedia and office applications as well as multitasking.
Technical specs include the Skylake Intel i7-6600U dual-core processor (4MB cache) at 2.6GHz up to 3.4GHz speed with hyper-threading for two cores to handle four threads and a Passmark benchmark score of 4812, large 16GB DDR4 SDRAM at 2133MHz to handle a great deal of multitasking, 256GB Solid State Drive for snappy performance and ample storage size and a 64-bit Windows 10 Pro version with a user-friendly interface.
This is a certified refurbished unit by Klamp Electronics, which is a select seller with a great performance history on Amazon.com. So it looks like brand new with no wear or tear and includes the same accessories as the brand new model and a minimum of 90-day warranty. It is tested, inspected, cleaned (if needed) and repackaged before going out in the market but you’ll receive it in a generic brown box. It feels no different to the brand new version with one year warranty.
15.6-inch LCD-backlit non-touch anti-glare display has the standard high definition display of 1366 x 768-pixel resolution and the standard TN panel without the 178-degree viewing angles of the more expensive IPS panel. Image quality is fine overall with decent contrast and vibrant enough colors but not as sharp or clear as a Full HD screen.
There is a high definition webcam with good picture quality for still snapshots and live image, along with a built-in microphone. The Intel HD 520 built-in graphics card with the shared memory with the main CPU offers a general multimedia performance that is more or less equal to the dedicated NVIDIA GeForce 820M graphics card. You can play the latest games of 2016 at low settings and resolutions if you will be gaming at all on this business laptop. The multimedia stereo speakers offer pretty decent sound for a business laptop.
Black Dell Latitude is a decent, reliable and portable laptop that you can use both at home and on the road, as it weighs 4.6 pounds and measures 9.9 x 14.8 x 0.9 inches, which means it is both fairly lightweight and slim. It has the Dell dual pointing keyboard wth 83 keys that also includes a numeric pad on the side and a multi-touch trackpad with the separate left and right click buttons. Thermal Design Power is 15 watts for the i7 ultra low voltage processor and you can expect around 5 to 6 hours for the usual web browsing and video streaming.
It has the latest dual band wireless 8260 that includes the 802.11ac WiFi connection with Bluetooth 4.1, 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet with RJ-45 connector, a Headset/Microphone combo jack, 3 x USB 3.0 ports (one of them with PowerShare), an HDMI output, the older style VGA output, SD 4.0 Media Card Reader, and a Security Lock Slot. You’re getting decent value for money here as this is not brand new but a certified and refurbished product with all the original accessories and 90-day warranty rather than the one year of the brand new.
