I have bitten the bullet and upgraded to a laptop with 1366×768 display resolution anyway.
But on a 13.3 inch screen. So it actually works pretty well.
It is a system worth about $2500 that I got for around $700. And no, it didn’t fall off the back of a truck! It fell off the back of the Dell Outlet Store.
- Dell Latitude E6320
- Core i5-2520M
- 4GB RAM (although as an ‘Enterprise’ system, it came with Windows 7 32-bit, so only 3.2GB is visible to Windows. Fixed that by dual-booting Ubuntu 64-bit)
- 250GB HDD
- Bluetooth (which I personally think is next to useless)
- Backlit keyboard (which I think is the BEST thing ever!)
- 6 cell battery
It’s also mil-spec hardened (or something) which means that it’s almost child-proof!
It does 1080p video and with 4 cores (2 physical and 2 virtual ‘hyper-threading’) video editing works well. Really well.
I want to post up a full review at some stage, but it may not be soon.
