Good: Longer battery life than my old Latitude X200
Bad: The weight!
Comment: Looks beefier but time knocking around Africa in export sales will tell. The footprint is the same as my X200, which gave 4 years of reliable service until it started slowing down drastically. However, it is thicker and disappointingly, over 300g heavier, which matters to me. I have had some initial problems with it "freezing" during the shutdown sequence when undocked, which I think may be due to using it on my lap or on a soft chair and blocking the air intake vents. This laptop has a powerful cooling fan, which belts out a phenomenal blast of hot air from soon after startup so I reckon cooling is an important issue with this model. It certainly gets very hot indeed.
Battery life is excellent though, much better than the old X200, another important factor in the field. Finally it picks up Wi-Fi, something I could never persuade the older model to do, another key point for frequent hotel guests like me.
