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

Dan K., Amazon
2 weeks ago
  • 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. Read their complaints, see Dell's support answers ranging from total disregard, through professional ignorance to blatant lies. The following link is from Dell's own support forum, describing in detail how the usb 3.0 ports of E6540 are really the much slower USB 2.0 kind.

Made for the enterprise....

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. Make no mistake - this is NOT a gaming laptop, even though the i7 and memory will likely support many mainstream game.

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 wireless card in my computer was not the original and did not support Bluetooth. I am returning the computer to Amazon.

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. At that point the Intel dual mode dropped out and you had only the nVidia video. This permitted boot video while docked and otherwise made the laptop behave normally.

confusion between name and technical specs

Tobechukwu E., Amazon
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. The title has this item's model to be E6540 but the technical spec has the model as E6530. This is soooo not right. What model will I receive if I pay my hard earned cash for this product?

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. It is worth it. Pro: - It is FAST. Web pages load quickly, really the quickest I've seen outside of an Apple store. - Video playback is terrific - It has an optical drive.

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. I use many personal, business and client laptops and full size keyboards but this one is the least satisfying and most prone to error.

A++ cannot fault

Mr. Pj Guerreiro "Phil", Amazon
21 November 2014
  • Summary: Amazing piece of kit recently upgraded from the Dell latitude e6420 i7 2720qm. I'm a web developer/graphic designer and this defiantly is up to scratch with the 2GB ATI card
