Dell Latitude D410 Review (pics, specs)


The Dell Latitude D410 is a 12.1 screen portable business laptop. It shares some similarities with the ultra light Latitude X1, such as having the same 12.1 screen size and no built-in optical drive to keep weight down, but it is overall quite...

Great new dark look and industrial design, very good solid build. When configured with a 2.0GHz processor, this is the fastest ultraportable out there. Good usability with the dual pointing device option (touchpad/pointing stick) and good keyboard....

The faster the processor, the more heat you'll get at the back of this notebook -- possibly too hot for the lap. No media card reader slot No built-in optical drive Pushes the line on being a true ultraportable as it's about 4lbs and much thicker...

The Latitude D410 ends up being a nicely designed notebook with a great power to size ratio. I don't think there are too many other (or any?) 12.1" sub 4lb notebooks out there that can compete performance wise with this machine when it has a 2.0GHz...

Dell Latitude D410


The keyboard is 94 percent of a full-size model, so those with porky fingers might find it difficult to adapt. We praise Dell for including dual pointing devices (touchpad and pointing stick), and the 12.1-inch screen (1,024-by-768 resolution) has a...

Very good performance. Easy-to-read screen. Dual pointing devices

Keyboard not full size

You'll find a full-size keyboard and better battery life with the competing ThinkPad X40 and the Portege R100, but if performance is what you crave, the Dell Latitude D410 is your ultraportable.

Refurbished Dell Latitude D410

Inexpensive ; Clean LCD (no dead pixels) ; Lightweight (3.8 lbs) ; Windows XP Pro (includes recovery disc) ; Decent battery life ; No Crap Ware found on drive

No Optical drive ; Keyboard on last legs ; Slight cosmetic issues ; Battery doesn't hold full charge

Several years ago when new the Latitude D410 sold for north of 2,000 usd, definitely not the sandbox I play in; the same unit refurbished we tested sells for a tenth of that. As such I am willing to overlook some slight cosmetic issues, as well as a...

Exact Replacement


Ordered the product which was the first ever Dell Replacement I have bought. Instructions were clear and easy to follow. Dropped right into place and worked first time. After sufficient charging it is now in regular use.

Consumer review by:

Long lasting


Decent price for a relatively long life batter -- just wish it was lighter since the d410 was meant to be a lightweight unit.

4 hours off a full charge

This item arrived as expected in excellant condition. I was thinking it would be black but it is all silver. None the less it is in good working condition and will function for my needs perfectly. I would never worry about purchases from the seller.
