Dell’s Latitude 14 7000 is a top-notch companion for mobile workers. The well-rounded system is simply one of the slimmest and sleekest 14-inch business laptops on the market, and this Dell’s long battery life means commuters can leave the charging cord at home. Plus, you get fast performance, a durable design, and a really comfortable keyboard. The rear-facing ports are a nuisance, but overall, this slim system is a terrific work machine. The system comes pre-configured with an Intel Core i5-6200U processor, 8GB of RAM and 256GB of solid-state drive storage.
Dell’s system is just as durable as the ThinkPad, though. It comes with MIL-STD 810G durability credentials, which means it was tested to survive shocks, vibrations, extreme heat, dings and drops from up to 4 feet. You are not likely to drop the Latitude 14, though; this laptop comes with a luxurious, soft-touch exterior that makes the machine easy to hang onto.
All the security features that IT departments demand are available here. For starters, all configurations of the Latitude 14 come equipped with Trusted Platform Module-based hardware encryption to make sure your private work files stay private.
