Latitude 5420

Post by tlmiller »

So, this has arrived, along with the ram upgrade.

Intel Core i7 1145G7
32GB DDR4 (upgraded)
1TB Sabrent Rocket-Q NVMe (upgraded)
Intel AX201 Wifi6 + BT 5.x
1080P 14"

Running EndeavourOS. Works great, not a single issue with the hardware. For being only a quad core CPU, it's more responsive than I was expecting. This also has the XE graphics. Not the high end 96-unit one, but still a G7, but a slightly cut down 80-unit XE graphics. Works flawlessly. "Only" purchased a 5000 series because the 7000 series no longer have DIMMs on any of them, the 7400 (clamshell, not 2-in-1) was the last 14" to have DIMMs. For being a 5000 series, this is remarkably light. Not going to win awards for performance in any way, nor for compactness, but even after upgrading to 32GB ram, I paid <$500. Now I can ditch the G5, while it's a nice gaming laptop, it's just too heavy for how I like to use things.
Still have yet to test a few things like sleeping/resuming from sleep, but most things I've tested and they work fine.

Sleeping and resuming from sleep works. Also, it now has a nice, sexy translucent orange hard case on it. mmmmmmmmm, Sexy.... :D

That is about the same color as an orange tootsie pop. Yum, tasty.

This is my favorite color of all my cases. Other than not being metallic, it's very similar to the color that was on my old 350Z.
