Does Dell Latitude 14 Rugged Extreme Stand True to Its Claims
If you are one of those who have a tough time taking care of their gadgets, Dell Latitude 14 Rugged Extreme is what you should get your hands on. This solid laptop is as reliable as your old Nokia phone. With a fourth generation Intel processor, this one is going to withstand all of it – the dust, vibrations and falls. Clearly, not only can it be your tool to work on those business presentations, but much more. Planning to take an adventurous trip? You don’t have to leave your laptop at the camp anymore, as long as you are carrying Dell Latitude 14 Rugged Extreme. Enough about its toughness, let’s see what it has got on the inside so that you can rent it from a computer rental.
The sturdy laptop weighs a massive 8.39 pounds. Every port of the system is covered with a latch that follows two steps. It comes with a sliding lock and a pull latch, which has to be held to unlock it. These doors open up to a number of ports, which include a Smart Card reader, SD card reader, a power connector, an Express Card reader, two Ethernet ports, one VGA port, four USB ports (2.0 and 3.0), two serial ports and a DVD burner. It also offers a NFC reader, located discreetly under the palm rest.
One glance at the 1,366×768 touch screen and you can tell that the resolution is much lower than what you would see in other laptops. Before you think of that as a stumbling block, here is the idea behind it. As the device is specifically aimed at assisting people outdoors, the resolution has been kept low on purpose. Military men, firemen and policemen, who are the target audience of the Dell Latitude 14 Rugged Extreme, use software that allows quick retrieval of information. They hardly need a laptop with a 1080p screen. In fact, what they prefer is one that is simple to use and is tough enough. Dell Latitude 14 Rugged Extreme works well on both these aspects.
Winner all the way
The screen of the heavy machine works like a mouse with a single button; you can drag as well as click with it, but you cannot zoom in by pinching or right clicking. The touchpad also works as a single-touch device. Dell Latitude 14 Rugged Extreme makes up for the low resolution by supporting full daylight visibility.
Dell Latitude does not fail to impress with its strength and endurance. It meets the MIL-STD-810G and IP65 standards of durability. Of course, the laptop is not indestructible, but it can take a lot more than just minor falls, dust and temperature changes. What’s more, you also get a warranty of three years. Ask your computer rental provider for a demo to check its endurance!
