Powered by an Intel Core i5-7200U processor, 8 GB of DDR3L/1600 memory, and a 256GB SSD, the Latitude 3380 ran smoothly and cranked through basic tasks just fine. On the other hand, it’s super tough. You could drop it on the sidewalk and it’d still deliver the sales projections for tomorrow’s meeting. It’s outfitted with both HDMI and DisplayPort. Its battery croaks after just 4.5 hours. This battery is removable, so you can swap in a spare.
Tough and attractive
The 3380 manages to be both pretty and rugged, its shell formed by the tough metal and carbon-composite material quickly gaining favor with higher-end PC makers. When gripped, the 3380 by the two ends and you triy to twist it, it doesn’t give one iota. Even the screen panel, a mere quarter-inch thick, barely flexes when the lid is whipped up by just its corner and snapped shut it again.
The Latitude 3380 has a gorgeous, non-glare, 13.3-inch IPS touchscreen with native resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels and the best off-axis viewing you have ever seen so far. The keyboard flexes in its middle and its keys bounce a little much, but they don’t clatter and they render nearly every keystroke correctly. The slightly concave keys are nicely islanded from each other, and offer just the right level of friction. Four levels of backlighting are available, which makes the computer easier to use and reduces the load on the battery when you don’t need its brightest settings.
