Nice laptop within budget
Display and Outfit
The Dell Latitude E5530 (841020825) arrives with a 15.6-inch HD LED backlit display which offers comfortable viewing experience with a resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels. It is wrapped in a 33.2mm thick black coloured outfit which has a weight of 2.3kg and carries matte finish that may not look appealing but resists scratches easily.
Configuration and Platform
On the inside, the Dell Latitude E5530 (841020825) is packed with a 2.4GHz Intel Core i3 processor from the third generation family. For handling multiple tasks, it has a mere 2GB DDR3 RAM which operates at 1,600MHz and can be further expanded up to 8GB through the two unused DIMM slots. The integrated Intel HD 4000 GPU has been given the responsibility of managing rich graphics. It sails on 64 bit Ubuntu OS.
Camera and Storage
The Dell Latitude E5530 (841020825) packs a simple webcam embedded in the bezel above the display. Together with the dual array microphone, it provides noise free video calling experience. The 500GB Serial-ATA hard disk operating at 5,400rpm offers plenty of space for creating a library of files. With the DVD RW drive, you can easily store files on disks and retrieve them when required.
Battery and Connectivity
The notebook is fuelled by a 6 cell Li-ion battery which is capable of delivering service for a maximum period of 4.5 hours on the trot. Moving on to the networking and connectivity features, we have HDMI out, digital media reader, Bluetooth v4.0, one USB 3.0 slot, two USB 2.0 slots and Gigabit Ethernet.
The Dell Latitude E5530 (841020825) is a nice laptop available at an affordable price tag. It comes with a standard Intel Core i3 processor but lacks a good RAM. Another disappointing thing is the lack of Windows on board. The durable battery backup comes extremely useful for those who need to move continuously.
