Ports in a storm: The Matebook 14 won't set your world on fire, but it's still a half-decent laptop

Re: d****k measuring contest ?

dumb as to think that a bigger screen for a laptop is necessarily "better"

I have experienced an excellent example of this at work. BC (before covid) we were issuing pretty decent Dell Latitude 5400s. I got one myself. Not as shiny or highly priced as some latops but perfectly cromulent. When it hit the fan, the NHS seems to have been loaned a large number of Latitude 5300s. These are smaller, several inches smaller. I would be quite happy to swop for the smaller device. It has a better battery life, exactly the same number of ports and would fit in my backpack even better.

At work, in a USB-C dock, it is identical. On my dining room table, it would leave room for my lunch as I work from home. No, whilst there are limits in either direction, I think the smaller device is superior.
