Dell Latitude E6440 (SM012LE64408GER)

Solid keyboard, mediocre display

The Latitude E6440 from the US manufacturer Dell is aimed at customers from the business sector - and the 14-inch notebook can easily meet this requirement. One detail is interesting, however. While the keyboard seems pretty good, the display struggles with one or two weak points.

Matt, but not very rich in contrast

The specialist portal, for example, determined a contrast value of only 389: 1 in a test, and in the opinion of the editors, the panel is also not very color-accurate and also not particularly stable in terms of viewing angles. The latter in particular can be annoying in everyday office life - for example when discussing diagrams or graphics with colleagues. The resolution in the tested version is solid 1,600 x 900 pixels, and you still get an anti-glare surface. Anyone who is in a brightly lit room or wears a light shirt does not have to worry about annoying reflections. Also important: The keyboard does not have a separate numeric keypad, but according to it offers a soft but well-defined stroke. A clear plus point for prolific writers.

Hardware, security and connections

Other features include Windows 7 Professional, a DVD burner and an Intel CPU called Core i5-4300M. The latter clocks at up to 3.3 GHz, has two cores and works quickly and without frills, even with tougher jobs. A simple onboard graphics, four GB of RAM and a 500 GB hybrid hard drive round off the hardware. The latter contains an 8 GByte flash module that accelerates the system start-up and access to frequently used data. In terms of security, the notebook offers, among other things, a Kensington lock, a fingerprint scanner and a TPM module, and you also get a strong 36-month guarantee, in which a technician is on the mat the next working day to fix the problem. Finally, the terminal strip remains. There are LAN, WLAN, Bluetooth 4.0, four USB 3.0, HDMI, VGA, card reader, headphone output and a slot for a separately available docking station.

The Dell Latitude E6440 is easy to connect, works quickly and scores with the good keyboard, the security tools and the service package. In return, there is the waiver of an SSD and the less than optimal display. With regard to the conditions - in the web trade you currently pay an impressive 1,130 EUR - these are two downright downsides.
