Dell Latitude E6540 Laptop
We just reviewed the predecessor Latitude E6530 back in February and reported in April that the first Haswell processors are scheduled to launch in June. Now in July we can already review the updated successor, the Latitude E6540. Dell is ahead of the competition, most manufacturers did not even announce the switch to Haswell processors for their business devices yet. The graphics solution is also brand-new; the AMD Radeon HD 8790M is still very rare so we will have a closer look at it in this review. The dedicated graphics card has sufficient performance for tasks beyond the typical office applications but that does not include very demanding CAD applications; the consumer graphics card is not certified for that. Our review unit is very close to a workstation in this configuration.
