The Dell Latitude 9510 was announced at the CES 2020 as being the first of the Dell 9000-series latitude that will be released in 2020. There was a lot of excitement over the release of this device, and it is for a good reason. The Dell Latitude 9510 is the most premium Latitude made to date, and this is the first Latitude coming with 5G capability. Since the Dell Latitude series is marketed as a laptop for business, this might be one of the best business laptops released by Dell.
The most talked-about feature of this laptop, apart from its beautiful design, of course, is its very extensive battery life.
Read on to find out why there is so much fuss over one laptop.
The Dell Latitude 9510 can be regarded as being beautiful. It is easy to see why, as it incorporates the use of a CNC aluminum chassis, which has a darker silver than the consumer edition of Latitudes. The interior of the laptop also comes in the same dark-silver design that gives it a premium feel.
The Dell Latitude 9510 is a 15-inch laptop that weighs about 3.3 pounds and looks quite similar to the Dell XPS 15. However, the better port selection and more powerful processors quickly set this laptop apart as being a very powerful business laptop. The Latitude 9510 is still slim enough for Dell to claim that it is the world’s smallest and lightest 15-inch business laptop. The design aesthetic of this laptop puts it in close resemblance to the Apple MacBook Pro.
Unlike the MacBook Pro, however, the Latitude 9510 has an accessible bottom panel that can be accessed by removing the bottom screws. This is an important feature for businesses that need to upgrade or reconfigure this laptop to suit their business needs.
The Dell has all the makings of a 2-in-1 business laptop. The screen of the Latitude 9510, for instance, has a 360 degrees rotation and comes with active pen support.
Ports and Speaker
The port selection of this laptop includes the full-sized HDMI 2.0 port, USB Type-C x 2 (Thunderbolt 3) ports, a display port, microSD card reader, and USB Type-A port X 1. Of course, it also comes with an audio jack and a physical lock.
The speakers that come with the Dell Latitude 9510 are top facing on both sides of the keyboard area, and they produce some really impressive audio. Though you should not expect too much bass like the one produced by bigger laptops with dedicated woofers or the MacBook Pro.
In terms of performance, the Dell Latitude 9510 does not skimp on that either. The Latitude 9510 comes equipped with the 10th generation Intel vPro processors with 6 cores and twelve threads. The processor is of the mobile Comet Lake (U-series) family as the Latitude features none of the more powerful H-series Intel processors.
The laptop does not feature an option for a discrete graphics card from Nvidia or AMD. Therefore, the users will have to make do with the Intel UHD graphics that comes with the CPU. The Intel 10th generation vPro processors are known for being fast, secure, highly manageable, and comes with good connectivity and battery life.
To handle all the multitasking that comes with using a business laptop, the Dell Latitude comes with 16GB of RAM and 1TB of PCIe NVMe storage card.
For connectivity, you can expect fast connectivity from the Gigabit LTE and the Wifi 6 connectivity that supports great battery life and security. Also, the 5G and 4G support, along with the eSIM, is a good addition to the Latitude’s configuration.
The Dell Latitude’s battery performance is the best thing about this laptop as it offers close to 20 hours of battery while playing a 720p video at half brightness, and the airplane mode turned on.
The Starting configuration of this laptop trades at $1600 with a 10th generation Intel Core i5 processor, 8Gb of RAM, 128GB SSD, and a 1080p display. While some of the other configurations like the ones with the 10th generation Intel Core i7, 16GB RAM and 1TB SSD storage comes with a price tag around $3000 price tag.
Overall, this is an expensive laptop that offers a lot of features very well suited for enterprise use. The remote access that the vPro Intel enabled processors offer makes it a good option for use as a business laptop.
