The E5510 comes with a good price tag considering the cost of other latitude lines. Its keyboard is also top -notch, as is its battery resilience that covers a tidy seven hours before running out of juice. The 1600 by 900 resolution is another plus for the machine. The lack of HDMI, coupled with that of display port is a disappointment. The business -machine is also heavy to carry arround.
The machine uses intel core i5 520M processor that produces a respectable speed of 2400 MHz. It also comes loaded with 3GB DDR3 memory with a memory speed of 1333MHz. The storage armour is beefed up with a single 250GB hard drive with a top speed of 7200 rps. The storage arsenal is further boosted with SD/MMC card and SDHC card, bundled with Express Card 54.

The E5510 operates Microsoft Windows 7 Professional Edition operating system, while Cyberlink PowerDVD DX is also part of the bargain. You will also find in -built speakers, microphone and webcam.
The networking credentials are quite good, mostly due to the presence of 802.11n wireless with a speed that can rival any of its peers. But you will encounter the odd setback, like its inability to connect to any network, a problem that can be traced to the Trial edition of Trend Micro’s own security software that inputed its NDIS driver to filter network connections. The E5510 scores a mark of 107 on the WorldBench Test, quite useful for a device of its league. There are some notable drawbacks in video performance, especially in High -Definition movies, where dark scenes appear muddled and action -packed clips suffer from obvious motion artifacting.
The machine comes ensuite four USB 2.0 ports, USB 3.0 port, a nine -pin RS-232 serial port -a nice addition for jobs that rely on serial -endowed peripherals-. But the device does not have eSATA port. The machine covers a width of 14.6 inches, a depth of 10.6 inches and a height of 1.4 inches. The weight is a good 6 pounds 2 ounces, that tops seven pounds when fully stuffed with assortments. The machine comes with an excellent keyboard and a pretty responsive keyboard. You will also appreciate the trackpoint( ereserhead).
The E5510 confines itself to the bussiness class, you will not find the unnecessary add -ons. You will be assured of easy system management and solid performance, coupled with a durable battery. All packed in a pricy tag of $1490.
