Top 5 reasons to BUY or NOT to buy the Dell Latitude 14 5411

Business notebooks by definition should be secure, perform well, and have good battery life. Usually, most business devices focus mainly on the first quality that we mentioned and tend to skip out or not pay as much attention to the rest.

Well, today we have a laptop that does everything from having all of the great security features to packing a full-fledged H-series CPUs from Intel, which offers great performance during prolonged and intensive workloads. With the specs that it has, it can be a great companion to an on-the-go developer or IT specialist.

Today we are presenting you with LaptopMedia’s Top 5 picks about the Dell Latitude 14 5411.

Dell Latitude 14 5411: Full Specs / In-depth Review

4 reasons to BUY the Dell Latitude 14 5411

1. The Design and Build quality

If you expected a thin laptop, well you’re out of luck today. The Dell Latitude 14 5411 is quite the thick boy, with a profile starting from 21 mm at the front and going all the way to 23 mm at the back. Despite that, the device manages to weigh only 1.54 kg. This mainly comes from the build materials, which misses any metal on it, but gives a more durable and lighter material: carbon fiber that is fused with plastics. Carbon fiber is one of the best materials when it comes to durability to weight ratio, and it’s no coincidence that it is used in many industries where weight has to be kept to a minimum. The body has minimal flexes when it’s twisted.

The lid can barely be opened with a single hand, and the base lifts off when you do it. After opening the lid, you are greeted by a very good and comfortable keyboard with decent key travel, and feedback that manages to be both clicky and quiet. The touchpad is very accurate, but it lacks in size. Thankfully it has physical buttons.

2. The Battery life

The laptop comes with two options for battery packs, one unit has 51Wh and the second, 68Wh. Our unit came with the beefier 68Wh battery pack that managed to last through 14 hours and 17 minutes of Web browsing and 11 hours and 4 minutes of video playback.

3. The Display

The Dell Latitude 14 5411 comes with two options for display, one HD, and one Full HD panel. We will skip the HD panel and go straight to the panel that most people will probably go for. The panel has a good contrast ratio, comfortable viewing angles, and decent default settings. Its color coverage is quite poor, covering only 50% of the sRGB color gamut. Additionally, the panel doesn’t use PWM to adjust its brightness at any level, making it safe for prolonged use.

As for the color accuracy, even with our “Gaming and web design profile” we couldn’t get it to a workable value. Below you can compare the scores of Dell Latitude 14 5411 with the default settings (left), and with the “Gaming and Web design” profile (right).

Buy our profiles

In addition to receiving efficient and health-friendly profiles, by buying LaptopMedia's products you also support the development of our labs, where we test devices in order to produce the most objective reviews possible.

Office Work

Office Work should be used mostly by users who spend most of the time looking at pieces of text, tables or just surfing. This profile aims to deliver better distinctness and clarity by keeping a flat gamma curve (2.20), native color temperature and perceptually accurate colors.

Design and Gaming

This profile is aimed at designers who work with colors professionally, and for games and movies as well. Design and Gaming takes display panels to their limits, making them as accurate as possible in the sRGB IEC61966-2-1 standard for Web and HDTV, at white point D65.


Health-Guard eliminates the harmful Pulse-Width Modulation (PWM) and reduces the negative Blue Light which affects our eyes and body. Since it’s custom tailored for every panel, it manages to keep the colors perceptually accurate. Health-Guard simulates paper so the pressure on the eyes is greatly reduced.

4. The Upgradeability

The upgradability here is on point, with both RAM and storage slots being available. After you remove the bottom panel, which takes 8 Phillips-head screws, you are greeted by two SODIMM slots, that support up to 64GB of DDR4 memory. For the storage, you get one M.2 PCIe x4 drive, and if you get the model with the smaller battery pack, you even get a 2.5-inch SATA drive.

1 reason NOT to buy the Dell Latitude 14 5411

1. The Cooling

The cooling solution that Dell has implemented here is quite decent and it has to be, considering the H-series processors that are available. The device has two heat pipes, one thick and one thin, and one fan, that might seem small, but has a tall enough profile to provide ample airflow.

As far as temperatures are concerned, the laptop runs pretty hot and the cooling solution is limited, due to the laptop’s small size.
