Summary: This is a great laptop, and I liked it a lot. It's a powerhorse, with an i7 processor under the hood. Even though it's almost four years old, it still performs very well. It has 4 CPUs, each of which are powerful 2.7 GHz. It has a full sized keyboard and a full-sized number pad.
Summary: This is the third Dell laptop my work has provided me over the past 6.5 years and it is the best one so far in terms of simple functionality, plus it has the bells and whistles like and HD display, HDMI out, integrated number pad, and multiple USB ports.
Summary: Good notebook, not so great battery life. Purchased this for my company to use but realized that the battery drained too fast for prolonged meetings. Other than that its a pretty good notebook. Fast processing speed helps run some programs easily. Definitely need a higher capacity battery.
Summary: This model, the E6520 is a dramatic improvement over the E6510, which was the previous version of this model. The E6500 and E6510 were so badly designed, compared to the competition, that I had given up on Dell laptops and moved to HP's Elitebook 8560p.
