Summary: This style notebook is fantastic, it can go anywhere. works perfect indoors or outside at job sites. I would rate this as very equal if not lighter in weight to a semi rugged panasonic. The handle feature is great, does not get in the way when using the notebook. Good port covers. Packed with features, Win 7 Pro 32bit handles legacy apps with no issues. Been thru a lot of different style/types of laptops and this one seems to be the best so far.
Summary: This computer is what it says it is and so far it does what it claims it will do HOWEVER... 1. It doesn't have a built in camera, so no skype video. Never even thought to look. I assumed wrongly that such things were standard these days. 2. It doesn't have any system for lighting the keyboard. Again, most computers don't brag about it but they have some method of lighting the keyboard in the dark.
Very fast, highly capable and tons of built in features!

Summary: Bought this so my girlfriend would have a nice computer for school. I really like the built in webcam and microphone for Skype and Rosetta Stone, although the microphone is not very accurate. This processor is very fast and doesn't freeze up under a high load of programs and downloads. Great computer for games or school, very well rounded. Haven't found anything that I really dislike yet.
Excellent performance, Exceptional build quality Great battery life.

Summary: The Dell E6420 is a laptop with excellent build quality, excellent keyboard feel and is easy to customize for individual needs, it has a full height WWAN slot which can be used other PCI-e devices, Laptop also features excellent thermal management and QUIET fans, For most of my field work I use Panasonic toughbooks which have NO fan so I am very impressed with the very low noise level of the fan especially since I work in many nearly silent environments.
Summary: I've used this laptop for work, 8+ hrs a day, for the last 18 months, and the thing is a rock. Very stable, fast boot, overall very very happy my employer chose this model. I have had a number of laptops over the last 10 years, inlcuding Lenovo, Toshiba, Dell, Samsung. This is by far the best, even 2 years after it's release. Running Windows 7 Pro 32-bit.
Summary: Been using this laptop for over a year now, and it has been rock solid. Great battery life and no hard drive issues. It runs applications quickly whether in Ubuntu 12.x, Windows 7, or even Windows 8. All have run great and without problems. I appreciate the simplicity of the system since it is primarily for business - Office applications, browsing, and email. But there is still plenty of power to work in Photoshop, Lightroom, or other photo/video editing software.
