Dell Latitude 5591 is a truly great potential mid-range business system especially in term of performance as it’s powered by Intel Coffee Lake generation CPU and discrete graphic card. Previously, we have seen there are so many Latitude series are using Intel ULV processor and now Dell makes a good move by making it slightly more powerful with 45 watts TDP processor. Users are more varied in term of options here and providing as much of choices as they can are a nice idea even though what are seeing here is basically the same laptop with better component.
Unfortunately, I find this device has too many similarities with their sibling, Dell XPS 15 2 in 1. The XPS 15 even has more powerful discrete GPU with GTX 1050 at the same price. Yeah, the manufacture puts similar pricing for some reasons and for this case I think lot of users will pick of XPS rather than this Latitude. Still, people might have different opinion about it. Today, we are going to take a look into it further and see how it works on satisfying our needs. Without further ado, let’s we jump into the article.
Design and Connectivity
The identical design is being used again here for a good reason as they have not changed the design for couple of years until now. Still, I find the chassis is slightly thinner and lighter than before although you won’t notice it really that much. In good way, the build quality is impressive with its matte black tough chassis. It also feels and looks great on hands and never make you shame at all when carrying it over around. Unfortunately, the smooth finishing here becomes a fingerprint magnet easily and cleaning it over for quite of while is recommended here. Happy or not, you need to accept they promise similar impression here.
You might find it bad as the chassis is built from plastic, but keep in mind we have of a very tough plastic material here. Making it warped will have you to press it with some amount of power. The same case happened to its hinge system and looks very responsive in my opinion. You can open the screen up to 180 degree for having better viewing angle. Sadly, the bezel around the screen is slighter thicker, but won’t really destroy the experience on using it.back to menu ↑
Display and Input
For this review I got the unit equipped with 15 inch 1920 x 1080p display produced by AU. Right here, I am quite disappointed with the display quality because it looks pretty standard in term of color accuracy and brightness. Dell also provides the HD version which looks even worse here. When testing it further with Colorimeter, the panel manages to produce of 60 % SRGB color and having of 251 nits of brightness distribution. I think that Dell will provide a better configuration display for a later as users would make a complaint about it. For a working purpose, the quality is enough but you would be very disappointed for using it in multimedia consumption.
As for the input, the keyboard has an impressive impression considering the base is now sturdier and the keys pressure is soft. The keyboard features a really standard layout although the enter key is quite small and takes time to get used here. The typing experience is great here especially I do not really hear a loud sound from my each pressure. The display might disappoint you, but the input experience is good thanks to its high quality keyboard.

Performance and Battery
The Dell 5591 is having a rather smaller chassis and coming with similar dimension and thickness like its predecessor, but inside you see a more powerful component here. For the processor, the system is fully equipped with Intel I7 8750H which has a Hexa Core CPU clocked at 2.2 GHz clock. This is considered as one of the most powerful mobile CPU Intel has now, so the performance is never being a problem here. With the help from 130 MX GPU, the system handles intense graphical work much better especially in photo and video editing processor. Some applications demand for good GPU and this is where the 130 MX is shining. Playing game is still impossible to do here, but I think people will not really intend to do that thing when buying this laptop.
The temperature is okay right here, but I found it gets hot pretty quickly especially during some heavy usages. Interestingly, the processor still manages to maintain 2.4 to 2.6 GHz clock and running better than I expect. It runs similarly like I found in new Macbook Pro 15 2018. The hot temperature is a normal case in thin laptop considering they put a powerful processor into a small chassis. The performance we see here is less powerful than what we have on many gaming laptops that have similar specs, but it’s pretty much worth to take a look.back to menu ↑
The Latitude 5591 is a nice option provided by Dell for users who look for more performance and portability at the same time. This is the first time in this year the manufacture adds of standard processor instead of ULV one. The temperature is quite hot, but it’s still normal like I said before. The only thing you want to consider here is the display quality that considered as far from my expectation. The choice is yours, so feel free to take any consideration about it.
