3 reasons to BUY the Dell Latitude 3500
1. Battery life
If you configure your machine with the bigger 56Wh battery you can expect very good battery life – 9 hours and 40 minutes of Web browsing and over 9 hours of video playback.
2. The I/O
The I/O of Dell Latitude 3500 is rich in ports. Let’s see what it has to offer – USB Type-C 3.1 (Gen. 1) port with a DisplayPort output, HDMI connector, RJ-45 connector, two USB Type-A 3.1 (Gen. 1) ports, audio jack, VGA port, USB Type-A 2.0 port, and an SD card reader.
3. The keyboard
The keyboard is a comfortable one, with long key travel and clicky feedback. A NumPad section is available too. The keyboard has a backlight which is a rare case in this price category.
2 reasons NOT to buy the Dell Latitude 3500
1. The screen
The screen (BOE NT15N4-M9P74 BOE0802) of the Dell Latitude 3500 is not good. It is a TN panel with poor viewing angles and mediocre contrast ratio – 300:1.
2. The build quality
The build quality isn’t the best. The entire laptop is made of plastic. You can’t open the lid with one hand. Speaking of the lid – not a very stable one and it bends if you are not careful. The bezels are big and that’s why the laptop has a bit outdated look.
