Last few days, the Dell Latitude E6520went by means of our tests in its standard constellation including aCore i5-2540 M, Intel HD Graphics 3000 (IGP) and a slow rotatingtough disk. The final result was a high-end, but costly home businessentrance device on a key drawback in its HD screen. The smaller colorspectrum and even the weak considering angles do not genuinely fitinto the image of a high-standard home business all-rounder.
Dell states that the Latitude E6520 hasa starting weight of 5.5 pounds. That is everything decently andextremely great, but our sure unit arrived in at a substantiallyheftier 6.7 pounds. The Latitude E6520 is even quite bulky,measuring 1.4 x 15.1 x 11.1 inches. Our unit let in Dell'snon-mandatory, nine-cell lithium-ion battery, which put out the rearof the laptop by virtually a full inch. On the normal battery, theLatitude E6520 would quite be 10.2 inches deep. Depending upon howyou configure it, you might require a large, rich laptop bag to cartthe Latitude E6520 around.
No matter of which class of notebook wecompared it against, our Latitude E6520 exam constellation made for aextremely capable performer. Its score of 8,128 on our 64-bit PCMarkVantage test, which measures out general system functioning, isefficaciously over the typical score of 5,864 for mainstream laptopswe've examined like January 2010.
A decent comparison will be the $1,499business-class HP EliteBook 8560p, which has a comparable core-partsconstellation towards the Latitude E6520. It is a lot more ascompared to $400 cheaper, and it hit a somewhat higher 8,487 onPCMark Vantage and that affords us pause.
The Latitude E6520 and EliteBook 8560pare each powered by 2.7GHz Intel Core i7-2620 M processors, 4GB ofRAM, and 7,200 rpm tough drives. Inside the case of the EliteBook8560p, the ambitious drive is 500 GB in size, while our LatitudeE6520's ambitious drive is just 320GB. The like constellationssupport clarify why the 2 systems had similar scores with ourmultimedia-encoding examines a synchronicity everything but unheardof in our labs encounter.
Every systems bring 2 minutes and 56seconds to change over our normal examination video cartridge clip toDVD - standard arrange on our Windows Media Encoder examination. Andwith our iTunes Conversion examination, in which we convert 11 audiocarries out from MP3 to AAC initialize, both systems completed in aswift 2 minutes and 11 seconds the speediest time we have discoveredfrom any mainstream-class laptop to date.
