I’d like some opinions on this laptop. It seems reasonably priced for a refurb unit. The processor is a little behind, but it’s got a large SSD and decent memory. For a reliable home laptop, this seems like a good unit. Thoughts?
Under “specs” and “features” nothing is mentioned about sound, input or output. I assume it’s equipped with both but would like that confirmed. Thanks.
It will have standard speakers. There is a headphone jack.
USB Type-C / Thunderbolt 3: 1
USB 3.1 Gen 1: 3 (1 with PowerShare)
Headphone/Microphone Combo: 1
I use only Latitude laptops in my organization. They come with zero crapware (only a few Dell tools, which are actually useful.) They are super easy to get information and support for. And they are usually extremely good quality. Highly recommended. The specs on this one may seem “old”, but the last two updates for Intel on mobile have not been that great. It’s plenty good for a number of years of good service.
What is warranty on this Latitude?
It states 3 Years from Dell, which is amazing really.
Thank you. That made my decision to buy emu chips easier!
Much, not “emu chips”!
This laptop is only marginally better than the HP Elitebook on the main page but it’s more than twice the price.
Actually it gets a very high score from Notebookcheck.com, probably the best review site. It is not just the specs but the quality and durability that at issue here. It is on par with a Lenovo X1 Carbon. I just bought a Thinkpad on Monday, otherwise I would be buying this.
The Latitude 7480 is a SOLID laptop. Even the 5000-series (equiv would be the 5480) is really, really nice. Really the only bummer on this is the dual-core i5 CPU, and the SSD, which is probably NOT NVMe unfortunately. The SSD can be augmented after the fact though, or if you want more than 8GB RAM.
But if you want a REALLY nicely-built laptop that is manufactured with quality in mind, and don’t need some crazy speed-demon CPU, this is a great deal.
Anyone comparing this to HP, Lenovo, suggesting those brands are almost equal, better, or any of that nonsense doesn’t take these things apart regularly and doesn’t have as much experience with computer as they are suggesting.
(I’m on a quad-core i7 Latitude 5480 right now, 16GB RAM and 512GB NVMe SSD)
Since 2002 in the corporate environment we have always been very happy with Latitudes and Dell service and support. Now retired I have to buy my own computers, the first time since 1982. I’m sticking with what works for me. YMMV
Glad to hear you say all of this. My mom has been looking for a new computer for months but dragging her feet. We happened across this today and it seemed like it might actually be hopefully great for her. All things being equal she was hoping for a 15" but we figured 14", a solid computer and deal was a fine compromise
