Summary: We can’t help but compare the Dell Latitude E4300 to another business-oriented, 13-inch ultraportable, the Lenovo ThinkPad X300, as well as its update, the ThinkPad X301. Like the Latitude E4300, the X300 and X301 are both ultra-thin, use SSDs, and come with a combination of a TrackPoint and a touchpad. The E4300 offers a much faster processor (2.4 GHz vs. 1.4 GHz) and slightly better graphics performance than even the fastest configuration of the X301.
Pros: Extra-long battery life, Speedy SSD, Bright screen with good viewing angles,
Cons: Mediocre graphics performance, Thick and bulky when battery slice attached, Mushy keyboard,
