Top 5 reasons to BUY or NOT buy the Dell Latitude 3301

The Dell Latitude 3301 is a good looking device that has great build quality. It can be configured with some decently fast Whiskey Lake processors like Intel Core i7-8565U and if the integrated video card isn’t enough for your needs you can pick the optional NVIDIA GeForce MX250 (25W).

This compact laptop has two display options, both have Full HD resolution but one is IPS and the other is a TN panel – avoid the latter if you can. If you haven’t already checked our in-depth analysis regarding this device you can find it here.

3 reasons to BUY the Dell Latitude 3301

1. Good battery life

For a 45Wh unit, battery life isn’t bad – almost 12 hours of Web browsing and over 12 hours of watching videos. This is a very good result.

2. All-aluminum build

The laptop has a gorgeous all-aluminum build – the machine looks and feels strong while holding it. This is definitely a device with a premium build quality that has good portability too because of its weight and thickness – 1.18 kg and 16.8mm profile. One more thing – you can open the lid with a single hand.

3. The display part 1

The display (BOE BOE07A0) is an IPS touchscreen panel with 1080p resolution that has good viewing angles, decent contrast ratio – 940:1 (820:1 after profiling), and it covers 89% of the sRGB color gamut.

2 reasons not to BUY the Dell Latitude 3301

1. The display part 2

Unfortunately, the display uses PWM for brightness adjustment and with a frequency of 200 Hz, it’s too harmful if you plan to use it for prolonged periods of time.

2. Soldered memory

Like a lot of new slim laptops, this one comes with soldered memory, so pick your configuration carefully because after that you can’t add more RAM.
