RE: is the Latitude E5440 a good laptop ?
Had one for 18 months. Common issues:
- Poor fan control
- Non functional thermal maangement settings
- Loose battery causing reboots when touched
- Keyboard issues in Linux
- Boots when removing AC adapter
Have had various other software/BIOS issues caused by the bloatware installed by Dell and out of date wi-fi drivers.
Would be a great machine is if was properly engineered and tested. Was a short-lived device and Dell see to have little interest in supporting it now.
