Dell Latitude E6420 XFR

Dell’s E6420 XFR is one of the toughest laptops out there. You can customize this $3770, 14-inch notebook with a Core i5 or Core i7 Intel processor, up to 8GB of RAM, and up to 256GB of SSD space. The system can withstand drops of up to 3 feet, and can resist rain, dust, sand, vibration, humidity, salt fog, and solar radiation.

The machine can operate in temperatures ranging from minus 20 degrees to 145 degrees Fahrenheit, and it can survive in temperatures from minus 60 degrees to 160 degrees Fahrenheit when turned off. It also comes with an optional single-point resistive touchscreen, which is particularly useful if you happen to be wearing heavy work gloves.

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.
