    I am using the Latitude 7280 at work which has similar but lower specs (i5 7300U) and its already very good for corporate work (e.g. resource intensive spreadsheets and office suite).

    One question for those who might be in the know. If a prospective buyer is interested in this Inspiron (or any laptop), how would they get a dual monitor set-up without a docking station?

    I'm currently using a docking station with the Latitude that utilises a mini-DisplayPort to DisplayPort cable on one monitor and VGA (M/M) cable for the second monitor.

    Would a docking station have to be purchased?

      I think for this laptop the hdmi output and and the usb c output could be used, if the monitor doesn't take usb-c/thunderbolt 3 then a usb to hdmi adapter could be bought for example

      Really depends on what kinds of video-outputs it already has. Some laptops already have HDMI + DisplayPort/DVI/etc, or any combination of two so they're set.

      This one has a HDMI port and a USB Type C 3.1 port, so you can use a USB-C to HDMI/DVI/DisplayPort dongle for a second monitor.

      Some protocols such as HDMI and DisplayPorts even support daisy-chaining, but afaik very very few monitors support this, so while one such port might theoretically allow you to connect to 2+ monitors, it's not usually a practical option.

    I use one of the models at the top of the page. Very easy and works well. https://www.displaylink.com/products/usb-adapters

    Edit- was meant to be a reply to question above about dual monitor setup.

    What’s the battery life on this one, would it be an all day type of life or just 2-3 hours?
