Design & Build:
Dell Latitude 3379 is a 2 in 1 laptop which aims to deliver workplace PC which the business can afford. Employees today don’t seek laptop which is heavy to carry and take around, they look out for laptops which are lightweight and can be carried around when required. And yes, Dell latitude 3379 is a perfect one for the employees to take around. As it is a 2 in 1 laptop it can be converted to tablets and can be easily taken around. The 13.3-inch touchscreen delivers resolution 1920 x 1080 pixels with the dimension of 0.74 – 0.76 x 12.69 x 8.82 inches and a weight of just 3.86 pounds.
However, if there is an internal issue in the laptop the IT department can’t just fix it above the surface instead it must remove the bottom panel which is quite painful.
Features & Ports:
In the left side of Dell Latitude 3379, you can see an AC power jack, USB, type C port for mini Display port, HDMI v1.4a, single size USB 3.0 and audio jack for headphones. While on the right side of the laptop you will find a power button, volume button, full-size SD card reader, USB 2.0 port and security cable slot.
Speakers & Screen:
Viola! Finally, PC manufactures identified 720p resolution DOESN’T WORK ANYMORE. Dell latitude offers a single panel display option and a touchscreen. The IPS panel delivers exceptional wide viewing angle with excellent contrast, rich colors with acceptable brightness for indoor use. On the other hand, the LED backlight is not enough to overcome the reflections of the glossy screen. When you take the laptop outside the sunlight washes out the screen which makes you see the reflection of the glossy screen.
The built-in speakers are not that impressive. The stereos are loud with minimal distortion but the audio has no bass.
Keyboard & Touchpad
The LED backlight present in Keyboard is quiet while the individual key movement is shallow. The keyboard backlight has three settings (high, low and off). The LED are well centred with minimal lights while the multi-touch click pad uses generic Microsoft drivers which are accurate, smooth with minimal gestures.
Though the laptop works like a high-priced business class hardware but unfortunately the internal hardware reveals its truth. The sixth generation Dell Latitude delivers reasonable performance for a 15 W processor and is modest step down in comparison to Dell XPS 13 and Inspiron 13 7000. But the base configuration of Latitude 13 is a step up as it has 2.1 GHz intel Pentium 4405U. Followingly, the integrated graphics, Intel HD 520 is enough to handle playing video 1080p which is enough to handle corporate webcast and streaming website.
The processor and graphics present in Dell Latitude are in the average state. The San Disk 256GB x 400 M.2 SATA delivers high transfer speed but what we users were expecting this year was NVme drive instead to get the work quickly done.
