The Dell Latitude E6330 may not look like much: It's a business-oriented laptop focused on, well, productivity. It's not as pretty as an Ultrabook, nor as powerful as a gaming laptop, but it gets the job done. The E6330 particularly shines when it comes to business-oriented tasks, such as when you're working in Office programs and saving documents. That’s not terribly exciting, to be sure, but Dell has definitely found the Latitude’s niche.
The Latitude E6330 also sports a dual-pointing backlit keyboard, an Intel Centrino Ultimate-N 6300 wireless mini card, and a DVD-RW drive. Like many business-oriented laptops, the Latitude E6330 can be optionally fitted with 3G or 4G networking service, though our review unit did not come with either of these. The E6330 runs the 64-bit version of Windows 7 Professional.
However, just because the Latitude E6330 has a higher WB7 score than does the Alienware M14x, that doesn't mean the E6330 is necessarily a better performer. In our Dirt 3 graphics tests, the Latitude E6330 managed acceptable, but nowhere near excellent, frame rates of between 22.7 (high-quality settings, 1366-by-768-pixel resolution) and 59.8 frames per second (low-quality settings, 800-by-600-pixel resolution). By comparison, the Alienware M14x boasted frame rates of more than three times that (between 82.8 and 186.5 fps).
Screen and Speakers
The Latitude E6330 sports a 13.3-inch matte LED-backlit display with a native resolution of 1366 by 768 pixels. Business-oriented laptops aren't expected to have breathtaking displays, but the E6330's screen is a little disappointing, even so. It's not very bright, even at its brightest setting, though the antiglare coating does help a tiny bit in brighter settings. The antiglare coating seems to do more harm than good, though, since fluctuations in display quality are noticeable when you move even slightly to the side. Color looks accurate but a little washed out, and HD video plays with lots of artifacting and stilted movement.
While video playback leaves much to be desired, audio on the E6330 sounds better than average. The speakers are located on the front of the laptop and produce loud, full sound. Voices sound a little hollow at the highest volume level, but audio quality in general is much better than that produced by the tinny-sounding speakers we're used to.
The Bottom Line
The Dell Latitude E6330 may not be a gaming powerhouse or a sleek Ultrabook, but it's still a good choice for business users. The E6330 is a good performer, and it performs especially well in the areas business users will be interested in—in our tests it posted excellent scores in Web performance, Office productivity, and storage performance, for example. In fact, its storage performance score (404.6) is the best of the ultraportable category.
So while the Latitude E6330 is not an ideal choice for watching videos, it's great for performing business-focused tasks such as using Office programs and browsing the Web
