Summary: The Dell Latitude E5500 was one of the last laptop computers to have a serial port. While there are USB converters nothing beats an actual serial port. We use the port for programming different security, access control and fire alarm panels. The converters were hit and miss even as far as they would work today and not tomorrow. The Dell is a rugged and dependable computer.

Excerpt: DURABILITY OF DELL LATITUDE In our work place we use the Dell on forklifts. We have tried many other laptops and can say none could stand up to the wear and tear as the Dell . Just imagine a laptop on a forklift in a very fast pace work enviroment? I tell you the computer takes a beating, and many cannot stand up to the rigors of this type of enviroment, Dell Latitude performs great in this enviroment and also is very durable.
Excellent durability, lots of USB ports, but no SDcard ports =[

It comes with Microsoft Office so you don’t have to download it and it is able to get wireless. The battery doesn’t die fast and it charges pretty quickly. Its very good, easy to use and durable.
