The Latitude E6x30 is quite popular as a mobile DAW because of its robustness and, once configured the right way, its system stability with external audio devices. Since I work with a dockingstation anyway, I have enought connections and don't need the highest robustness.
I was wondering if the E5540 has the same motherboard (of course minus some usb ports etc.), i.e. technical "layout"/features and BIOS? That would make it a great and less expensive alternative to the E6530. Unfortunately, the review otherwise great doesn't say much about the technical difference between the E5530 and the E6530.
Great Work. I have a question. I´m thinking on buying this laptop for photography retouching work. I own the Dell U2711 27 inches with 2560x1440. Is it possible to connect it to the monitor to get the same resolution? Maybe with a VGA to DVI cable? Or do i have to buy the Docking Station?
I was wondering about the noise. I usually work in a library and I'm concerned this may be a problem. Can adjusting the power profiles reduce the noise to an acceptable lever? If so, will it have a negative impact on the performance or will it be an acceptable one?
Powerful Essentials. Dell's Latitude E5XXX series has long been an affordable alternative to the highest-end Latitude notebooks without sacrificing the essentials. Can the E5530, with its brand-new Ivy Bridge chipset and other minor tweaks, top its predecessors?
