Sic transit gloria mundi - some hard facts concerning Dell in general & this model in particular

Dan K., Amazon
7 April 2015
  • Summary: Like always, poor support & cheap materials. Dell relies on its past reputation as a quality manufacturer. Now Dell is no more than a low grade computer peddler. Have a look at Dell's own users' forum.

J. Tant, Amazon
12 February 2015
  • Summary: This is a fine laptop, engineered for the enterprise market and not so much for the consumer. Therefore it's made for longetivity and not so much performance, although most specs certainly aren't lagging on this machine. Probably the biggest area of compromise in this laptop is that of the display.

Buyer beware.

K. Krause, Amazon
30 April 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this computer (Latitude E6540) through Amazon's vendor "Computer Upgrade King." The order was fulfilled by Amazon. It was not advertised as being a refurbished model, but it had previously been returned to Dell according to their phone support (determined by the Service Tag).

The dual-mode video cannot be normalized on this model

David M., Amazon
11 March 2014
  • Summary: We have all Dell laptops at our business and always ordered the performance video chipset. For the previous models that had the Intel/NVidia combo video (E6420, E6430), we went into the BIOS under video and disabled Optimus.

17 September 2013
  • Summary: I was about to add this laptop to my cart and check out until I decided to check the technical specs before purchase and I noticed that the laptop model stated in the product's title and the model specified in the technical specifications are completely different.

Fast laptop with behind-the-times display

Mush, Amazon
31 July 2013
  • Summary: I just got this computer yesterday as a part of a corporate purchasing program. It was ordered for me. Mine actually has 16 GB RAM and not 8, so it appears Dell will customize them even more for corporate customers than for retail customers. I recommend getting as much RAM and you can.

Disappointing for many reasons

hechameleon, Amazon
16 February 2015
  • Summary: I decided to splash out a bit on a powerful business laptop that could handle having a load of applications open at the same time without grinding to a halt. Whilst the machine is ok at multitasking, there are a few basics that sadly make me hate it. Firstly, the keyboard is terrible.
