The Dell latitude 2110 is a netbook for business; it is compact and ultraportable, making it the perfect secondary PC for any entrepreneur who wants to stay in touch on the road.
This is looks like a standard machine at first glance but Dell has tried to put a more modern twist on it, and fitted it with a touch screen. A gimmick or a great addition to the Latitude range?
What we like best
The most important features in an ultraportable laptop, designed for a traveling entrepreneur are connectivity, battery life and size and weight. Ideally you would like all of this without compromising too much on power.
We were pleased to find that this model comes with built-in wireless, Ethernet and the option of mobile broadband, so you are almost guaranteed to stay online where ever you are.
It weighs around 1.3Kg which is the perfect weight for a netbook and comes with a 10.1 inch screen with touch capabilities. This screen has a 1,366 x 768 resolution which plays 720p content with ease.
It is powered by an Intel Atom processor which is low-voltage, helping you to conserve power. It’s no iCore chip but in a netbook you are not looking to open hundreds of applications at the same time.
What we like least
Although the touch screen may be a selling point for many, as not many netbooks out there come with such capabilities, but we found it quite unresponsive and unnecessary.
As stated above, battery life is a very important quality on a netbook and this one lasted just seven hours of light usage. This may seem like a lot but when compared with other laptops on the market it does fall behind.
Overall this netbook is great value for what you are getting; an Intel Atom processer, a lightweight highly connective machine, webcam and personalised operating system. All this starts from just £289 (ex. VAT) - so for that price we can forgive the clunky appearance and mediocre touch screen.
