RE: is the Latitude E5440 a good laptop ?

Had one for 18 months.  Common issues:

  1. Poor fan control
  2. Non functional thermal maangement settings
  3. Loose battery causing reboots when touched
  4. Keyboard issues in Linux
  5. 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Have had various other software/BIOS issues caused by the bloatware installed by Dell and out of date wi-fi drivers.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.
