It is an average day: The winds are blowing at 30 mph; rain comes pouring down in great torrents; the ground under your feet is formidable bedrock. The Dell Latitude 14 7414 Rugged Extreme laptop, starting at $3,399.00, is built for lives less ordinary, for people whose “average days” require the wherewithal for a rugged life, laptop et al.
Hell Hath No Fury
The Latitude 14 7414 is a 14″ laptop with a magnesium alloy backbone. This mighty beast is designed for the tough life, built with ultra‐polymer material to absorb shocks without batting an eyelid. So, if extreme temperatures befall, the fourth generation QuadCool thermal management will keep it safe. If a sandstorm blows up or a forceful stream catches you unaware, the dual‐knife‐edge design (IP65 protection certified) will fight off the elements.
This military-standard resilience (MIL‐STD) emanates from the Latitude’s developmental principle: test-to-fail. If it cannot pass rigorous testing, it ain’t good enough.
The Performance Meter
Ruggedness is excellent, but ruggedness alone cannot get things done. The Rugged Extreme laptop understands this and how, smoothly steering your business with its sixth-generation Intel Core i3/i5/i7 Processor and up to 32 GB 2133MHz DDR4 memory. It offers reliable storage up to 1TB (Mobility Solid State Drive).
Since this mean-machine runs Windows 10 Professional, you can juggle all your tasks with the latest productivity tools.
Display & Graphics
For the real adventurer, life changes before you can say Jack Robinson, the deluge giving way to blinding sunlight. Thankfully, the Latitude 14 7414 has a Direct-View outdoor-readable display that lets you enjoy perfect visibility in all conditions.
It supports Intel HD Graphics 520 and a screen resolution of 1366 x 768. Along with that, you can also get AMD Radeon R7 M360 graphics card with it. The resistive touchscreen is incredible even when your hands are wet, soiled or gloved.
Accessibility & Connectivity
A sunken island, the heart of a blizzard — for some of us, these aren’t just happenstance. The Dell Latitude 14 7414 provides undeterred accessibility, come what may, through its backlit keyboard (RGB and white lighting), a stealth key (to turn off all light and sound), dedicated GPS, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, 4G/LTE mobile broadband, and — hold your breath — up to 10 hours of battery life. In fact, you can prolong this further with an optional hot-swap bridge battery.
The laptop also has adequate device plug-ins: two USB 3.0 ports, two Ethernet ports, an ExpressCard reader (54 mm), an optional PCMCIA reader, as well as a Webcam with privacy shutter and mic.
With all that bulk, can this beast even move? Well, it is hefty (over 8 pounds), but it’s also wonderfully agile. With the Dell MDS14 Dual Monitor Stand, you can swivel the monitor as needed and adjust its height to maximize viewing comfort. It also supports universal docking so you can switch workspaces in a trice.
The Dell Latitude 14 7414 enjoys the mental peace that comes with Dell’s endpoint security solutions including encryption, advanced authentication and threat protection. Plus, it’s compliant with the Dell Client Command Suite so you can quickly deploy it for your high-adrenaline fleet.
