The Dell Latitude 3330 packs the performance students need in a durable 13-inch notebook. This laptop features an aluminum lid, accurate touchpad, superb keyboard and wide viewing angles. The Latitude 3300 runs Windows 7, but not every student needs Windows 8 or a touch screen. Our review configuration also lasted more than 6 hours on a charge. You can get this laptop with a cheaper Celeron processor, but we’d step up to a Core i3 CPU.
