The Dell Latitude 5400 Chromebook is not for a "fancy pants" laptop user who prefers superfluous bells and whistles. This business-oriented Chromebook, reviewed at $1,936 (currently on sale for a sweet $1,259), targets down-to-earth worker bees seeking a practical, no-frills machine with easy access to their favorite Google applications.
Last December, we received the Dell Latitude 5400 (equipped with Windows) and we praised its durable chassis and decent battery life. This time around, we experimented with the Dell Latitude 5400 as a Chromebook. The clamshell is perfect for users yearning for a bare-bones, powerful laptop with Chrome OS, but if you are looking for a device with sweet-on-the-ears audio speakers and a bright display, this device is not for you.
