Durability and Security
With military-grade strength, the Latitude 5420 has a sturdy chassis that can survive even the harshest conditions. When we dropped it from 3 feet (with the power off), the laptop was unharmed and powered right up. Even more impressive is how it handled our water test. The laptop turned on and booted Windows without a hitch even after we ran water over it for 30 seconds. The touchpad, touch screen and keyboard were in working order.
The Latitude passed MIL-SPEC-810G durability tests for high altitudes, water ingress, repeated drops and thermal shock — just to list a few. Soldiers and construction workers will benefit from the Latitude 5420’s ability to withstand sand and dust, while the vehicle vibration test it passed should be reassuring to police officers and emergency workers.
