The 14 inch Active Matrix TFT Color LCD LED-backlit glossy display with 1366×768 pixel resolution and 16:9 image aspect ratio offers vivid, sharp and bright images but not super rich in colours. It comes with the integrated Intel HD 3000 graphics that allows you to play the older games at higher settings and newer titles at lower settings and resolutions.
Gun metal gray and black stylish looking Dell Latitude E6420 weighs 4.5 pounds and measures 13.80 x 9.40 x 1.20 inches and it is portable for when you are on the go with also its decent battery life. Keyboard is not backlit and doesn’t include a separate numeric pad on the side due to the size but is spill-resistant and the concave keys with tactile feedback are comfy to type on and the 3.1 x 1.8 inch touchpad with separate left and right clicks seems responsive and allows easy navigation on Windows 7 screen and the palm rest is soft to touch and easy on your wrists. For connectivity you have the DVD-RW optical drive, 802.11bgn wireless with an on/off switch on the right, 3 x USB 2.0 ports (one with eSATA support), an HDMI port, a Smart Card Reader, an ExpressCard /54 slot, VGA out, an Ethernet port and a Kensington lock slot at the rear, a Smart Card Reader at the front for business security, a genuine Dell AC charger and a 2 megapixel webcam with decent image quality.
Dell Latitude E6420 is a very decent and affordable mobile choice with its tri-metal durable magnesium alloy internal frame for business users- stylish and modern, solid and durable with a tank-like build, unique design- space age angular shape with matte chrome sides, aluminium lid, reinforced matte chrome hinges and a nice orange stripe around the keyboard, fairly compact and portable, has a great ergonomic keyboard with responsive keys, a powerful second generation processor with a Passmark benchmark score of 3557 as of today that can handle demanding tasks smoothly and decent battery life. It stays cool and comfortable even after hours of operation or performing demanding tasks. Speakers are sufficient for watching videos, playing games or listening to music in a small room- sound is loud and clear, not tinny but not amazing either. The Intel HD 3000 GPU lets the system play Full HD 1080p resolution video easily and smoothly and you can play games like World of Warcraft easily at 40+ frames per second at HD resolution and when the games get more demanding the FPS will go down so you’re better off sticking to older and less demanding titles. Latitude E6420 is more of a business type laptop designed for professionals and offers quite a lot of performance, portability, durability and reliability for the money.
