+11 More reasons for
SSD Storage Medium
The Latitude 12 5000 has an SSD storage medium which is better than the HDD storage medium found on most portable PCs of this age and type. Solid State Drives (SSD) store data in semiconductors on a circuit board rather than using magnetic or optical media. Solid State Drives have no moving parts which makes them very fast and reliable.
This portable PC's storage medium (SSD) is in fact the best storage medium across all portable PCs of a comparable spec and age to the Latitude 12 5000.
An HDD storage medium is the worst storage medium amongst similar types of portable PC.
There are a number of other notebook PCs that have an SSD storage media currently available that you might also want to look at including the 13Z940, or the 13Z940 both from LG or the Lenovo ThinkPad E550 (£510.28) which is cheaper; or the DELL Latitude 12 7000 which has better reviews.
If you are looking for a laptop with a better storage medium then you might also want to look at the Asus UX301LA (£940.48) (SSD).
Has a Full-Size Keyboard
The DELL Latitude 12 5000 has a full-size keyboard. Most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that were released more than a year ago also have a full-size keyboard.
Alternative laptops with a full-size keyboard currently available which you might also want to consider include the Lenovo T450, or the DELL Inspiron 17 5758 (£645.00) which is cheaper.
We compared all the other portable PCs which also have a full-size keyboard to this notebook PC and we think the DELL Inspiron 17 5000 (£649.00) is also worth considering.
Has a Front Camera
The DELL Latitude 12 5000 has a front camera, as do most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that were released around the same time as the Latitude 12 5000.
Alternative portable PCs with a front camera currently available that you might also want to look at include cheaper laptops such as the Lenovo T450.
It is worth also looking at other laptops which also have a front camera including the Latitude 14 3000 (£472.02), or the Inspiron 17 5000 (£649.00) both from DELL.
L3 Processor Cache
This notebook PC has a L3 processor cache, which is typical of many laptops that were launched more than a year ago.
802.11n WiFi Standard
This notebook PC has an 802.11a|802.11ac|802.11b|802.11g|802.11n WiFi standard, which is the most frequently found WiFi standard on medium processor core notebook PCs that have been around for around the same time as it.
Fairly Big Maximum Internal Memory
At 16 gigabytes, the Latitude 12 5000 has a fairly big maximum internal memory compared to most of the other comparable spec laptops that were launched more than a year ago. Medium processor core notebook PCs that are a comparable age to the Latitude 12 5000 have maximum internal memory of between 2GB and 32GB.
With a weight of only 1.6 kilograms, the Latitude 12 5000 is fairly light compared to most of the other portable PCs of this age and type. The average weight of similar spec notebook PCs that were launched around the same time as the Latitude 12 5000 is 2kg.
If you don't mind having a heavier weight then you might want to look at the HP 14 (£870.75) (1.7kg and cheaper).
256 Solid-State Drive Capacity
The Latitude 12 5000 is a 256 gigabytes solid-state drive capacity notebook PC.
2x SO-DIMM Memory Slot
