For one, I only averaged three hours and 35 minutes of battery
life, which would be a big problem even if everything else about
this device was incredible. But even while on power, I could feel
the thing chugging toward the higher end of my workload. For
example, while I was operating a second screen over Thunderbolt,
loading some files from external drives, running a few downloads,
and trying to work over that in 20-ish Chrome tabs, the Latitude
had visible slowdown. I don’t see this as an unrealistic office
workload, so that’s concerning.
A $2,000 laptop that gets under 4 hours of battery life and slows down under nominal use. Jiminy.
