Our Specialist view of the Dell Latitude E5540 laptop

The Spec:

The Dell Latitude E5540 specs are as follows: A full HD 1920 x 1080 15.6” WLED larger screen display with a 4th Gen Intel Core i5 processor, 4GB DDR3 RAM that can be upgraded to 16GB and a reasonable size 128GB solid state drive. The SSD still have an acceptable amount of storage space after the OS. Windows 10 Professional is preinstalled so you can get up and running straight away. Lots of connectivity options as well as WiFi, Bluetooth and a webcam.

The Good Bits:

Unlike a lot of our laptops it’s got a larger 15.6” display rather than a 14” or smaller. We really like that it’s Full HD WLED because it provides a sharp viewing experience and lots more viewable screen! We’ve mentioned on several of our other refurbished Dell laptop reviews that Dell laptops are superbly well made and durable, and the E5540 is no different. The case also houses a separate number pad, which if you’re working a lot with Excel or accounting software is invaluable. The addition of an SSD, for performance gains, is also a big plus, ignoring the relatively small capacity. We do see this as a positive however, as it encourages the use external storage, which in our opinion is a far safer way of storing data. Click here for some benefits to using external storage.

The Not So Good Bits:

Something that plagues Dell laptops of this age is the overall size and weight. Coming in at just under 2.5kg it’s by no means a super heavy weight, but it’s more Mike Tyson than Floyd Mayweather, which may put some off. We touched on the smaller capacity SSD above and mentioned the positives to it, though it does have some obvious drawbacks. There won’t be huge amounts of storage available so if you are someone that likes to store lots of music, photos, videos etc then a SSD upgrade may come around a lot sooner than expected.

The Design:

A few less straight lines in the E5540 does make this laptop feel a little less boxy and slightly more modern than the smaller E5430’s. The plethora of ports and slots is also a big bonus.


It offers more that it’s smaller cousin, the E5430 and doesn’t weigh much more either so it certainly would suit a home user but also a business professional that is predominantly office based.

Customer Reviews
First impressions,
I am delighted with it. I had extra RAM fitted. I did not like win10 and so you changed that for me and installed Linux Mint 20.2 by return of post!!! The resulting laptop is wonderful. Nice big screen and we love it. Morgans...what can I say, you have been really really helpful and nothing was too much trouble. No wonder I come back to you. Thank you. Kind Regards, Geoff
