Dell Latitude E6420: Design and Display

The Dell Latitude E6420 design is great with a gunmetal gray Tri-Metal, angular shaped and curved matte edges, to give the Latitude E6420 an executive style look. Nevertheless, the fast response, rubberized, soft-touch deck is very comfortable as the inside of a corporate Benz. Add in matte chrome edges and bezels, coupled with orange stripe colors around the keyboard, you’ll get one of the best design on any Dell laptop.

The Dell Latitude E6420 Tri-Metal chassis is a new design we haven’t seen on Dell laptops before. This is more than just eye candy with steel hinges and edges combined into protective LCD steal and magnesium alloy frames which are designed to protect against vibrations, dust, and temperatures. A spill-resistant keyboard is an additional benefit that guards your keyboard against any ineptitude.

This makes big businesses and organizations choose the standard one over the touchscreen, as it’ll be difficult to use without these features. Moreover, Dell doesn’t include any touch-friendly software on this laptop, with reasons best known to them.
