Dell Latitude E6220

Laptops
Hi. I'm Scott Stein, senior editor at cnet.com and what you're about to see is probably not a laptop to you. That being said will explain why. It's the Dell Latitude E6220. Now what would you guess to be the price of a laptop like this. 12.5-inch screen, core i5 processor, 128 GIG SSD. It starts at over $1600. Now wait a second, why is it that expensive? I'll probably get a Macbook Air which was a (??) by SSD storage for 1599. What does this bring to the table? Well it does need some serna mill spec standards and it is made with a tri-metal classy design. Even though it looks incredibly old school, it uses magnesium and brushed aluminum to complete the classy look and it's got a field screen area all providing some dust protection and stores at the keyboard. But let's get down to the truth. $1600 plus it's too much to pay. This configuration came in at $2000. This is meant for businesses though. I mean it's got VPro, TPM. If you don't know what those are then you don't need them. They're meant for people who's IT departments and are meant for encrypted security features and the average user is not gonna use those. Even small businesses are not gonna use those features and with the nickel and dime all the extra features on this Dell Latitude they can climb basically as high as you wanna pay from Goby wireless to WiMax to any other Dells as much as you wanna pack on to this. Performance wise is really just matches. Your average mid range core i5 laptop. In fact the HP DM4 with beats adjuster hued performed about as fast. Now for 12.5-inch screen laptop, that's pretty good. However, we've gotta offer books everywhere, in laptops that are pretty fast and perform well and come in around a $1000 and hey, a lot of business are accepting those as your laptop. In fact Macbook Airs are becoming a business favorite. So why go with this? We can't really say why unless you really like the idea of a thicker laptop that's maybe a little bit more rugged and you got a lot of money to pay. I'm Scott Stein and just look at the Dell Latitude E6220
