First look: Dell Latitude 2100 ruggedised netbook

The first ruggedised netbook designed specifically for schools

The Dell Latitude 2100 is configured with an Intel Atom N270 CPU, which is Hyper-threaded and has a clock speed of 1.6GHz. Our review unit came with 1.5GB of DDR2 SDRAM (1GB is built in to the motherboard, and the 512MB is installed in the SO-DIMM slot), an 80GB, 5400rpm hard drive, and integrated Mobile Intel 945GSE Express graphics that use 8MB of RAM. It has enough power for running office applications and for performing some light photo editing and multimedia tasks (such as viewing videos, and listening to and editing music). You won't want to use it for taxing content creation tasks such as video editing or extensive photo manipulation.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
