DELL Latitude E6430 Review
This is the newest variant of the Latitude business-class notebook PC’s. The e6430 is designed to have the same footprint as a 13″ notebook, but sports a larger 14″ display. It’s still really compact, although not as thin or light as a competitor’s notebook, but that’s ok because this isn’t designed to be an ultra-lightweight machine.
The top of the display cover and some trim pieces are clad in brushed aluminum though, and that makes it look really nice and adds some scratch resistance. You still get the same features as the bigger Lats like the weird pointer button and finger buttons above the trackpad, which is also programmable for multitouch input (pinch to zoom, rotate, etc.). It’s a little small, but that’s not a problem as I found it really easy to use. The trackpad mouse buttons and palm rests are coated in soft touch rubber, which feels really nice. The keyboard is backlit and has 3 brightness settings. It turns off when you aren’t using it though. The keyboard is sealed underneath to protect the components inside if you splash or spill something on it.
The OS is Windows 7 Pro 32-bit, which we chose because the RAM is only 4 GB. It will take up to 8 GB, and with only 4 this is still a smoking fast machine. The 14″ display is 1366×768 LED backlit LCD display with the anti glare coating, which for a machine in this price range is just mediocre. There are 2 USB SS 3.0 ports, a VGA, eSATA, mini HDMI, and ethernet ports. It includes a 8x super multi writer drive (DVD R+RW, CD-R R/W) that reads, writes, and re-writes CD’s and single or dual layer DVD’s. The internal hardware is what makes this machine so great. Inside is Intel’s 4000 graphics chip, and one of the most powerful mobile CPU’s on the market. The E6430 is configured with Intel’s 3rd gen Core i7 3520m quad core CPU 2.9 GHz 4 MB cache, 4 GB 1600 MHz DDR3 RAM, and Dell’s 1520 802.11 g/n single band mini WiFi card.
The hardware makes this a smoking fast machine.
