4 reasons to BUY the Dell Latitude 5300

The device is made mainly of carbon fiber. That’s why it weighs just 1.24 kg and its profile is 16.9mm only. You can take it with you almost everywhere because of the compact dimensions.
2. Great display
The IPS display AUO B133HAN05.6 AUO562D (option) has superb viewing angles, an excellent contrast ratio – 1790:1 (1560:1 after profiling), a 95% sRGB coverage, and great average dE values (1.0) after applying our “Gaming and Web design” profile.
3. Good battery life
From just a 42Wh battery unit we were able to squeeze 15 hours of Web browsing and over 16 hours of video playback.
4. Comfortable keyboard
The keyboard is comfortable for long hours of typing because the keycaps have good travel and clicky feedback. There is a backlight too.
