Dell Latitude D630


Over the past year or so, Dell has seen a dip in fortunes in the laptop market. Once considered the brand to emulate, both in terms of business support and product reliability, it's now been eclipsed by HP and a surprisingly resurgent Acer who's...

Test no 1: Battery lasted 4 hours and 45 minutes Test no 2: Battery lasted 3 hours and 45 minutes Test no 3: Battery lasted 5 hours and 25 minutes. As you can see there was quite a bit of difference in the prevalent battery life and it...

Dell Latitude ATG D630


This is one tough and fast PC, but it's better at surviving drops than it is spills.

Wide screen easily readable in bright daylight ; Solid-state hard drive ; Speedy startup

Didn't pass spill tests ; Slow integrated graphics card ; Pricey

Dell Latitude D630


Packing mobile broadband, a host of security options, and a sturdy design, the Dell Inspiron D630 is a top-notch business notebook.

Sturdy magnesium-alloy body ; Excellent productivity performance ; Discrete graphics ; Very good endurance with nine-cell battery ; Wealth of security features

Battery is in front of the machine ; Heavier than Lenovo T61 ; Not the best wireless range

Dell Latitude D630 Review


Some of you are probably wondering as to why I chose so little RAM and a rather small hard drive. Like I said, most upgrades are reasonably priced. I purchased 2GB from Newegg for $80, Dell's upgrade would have been $200

Extremely sturdy design and feel ; Amazing security software ; Bright screen ; Great battery life ; Awesome overall performance ; System tends to run cool and quiet ; Excellent customer support ; Practically zero bloatware

Somewhat expensive upgrades ; Sound quality ; Contrast ratio could be better ; Not a Lenovo keyboard

To make a long story short, the computer didn't boot up at first after my do-it-yourself upgrade and after calling tech support I thought I might have to purchase a new $350 motherboard. Luckily, the RAM just needed to be seated properly. I could have...

Inside Intel's New Centrino Duo and Centrino Pro (Santa Rosa)


Business laptops tend to look much like one other, rarely deviating from the conservative, standard black exterior. The Dell Latitude D630 ($2,079 direct) is an exception. It has a sleek, professional appearance that doesn't scream conformity. What...

FireWire support. 85-Wh battery lasted awesomely long. High-res screen. Travel-friendly.

Battery design will not be compatible with older Latitudes.

The Dell Latitude D630 is a portable midrange business laptop with an appealing design that will land you some performance benefits.

Dell Latitude D630 (Green PC)


Measuring 9.3 by 13.2 by 1.4 inches and weighing 5.8 pounds, the D630 is neither the lightest nor the thinnest laptop in its category. The 85-Wh extended battery, which protrudes from the front bezel, is factored into the equation; with a standard...

Eco-friendly. Highly configurable. Outstanding battery life. Mobile broadband options. Good performance scores

Lacks a memory card reader. Pointing stick is hard to use

Bolstered by a long list of green credentials, the Dell Latitude D630 business laptop can be configured in countless ways to benefit your company.

I bought this laptop for school and haven't stopped loving it since it arrived. The 14" screen size is so much better than a clunky 15". I know one inch doesnt seem like it would make much of a difference, but it absolutely does. Get the smaller...

Build Quality, screen size, keyboard feels amazing, 3 year warranty incuded

Dell service is terrible at times, not as thin as some

Dell Latitude D630


The Dell Latitude D620 has been such a popular laptop for Dell that when they came out with the new D630, they knew not to mess with a good thing. The D630 has some nice upgrades and its body is small enough to make it very portable, thus it's great...

The Dell D630 offers a lot of bang for the buck. Prices for the D630 start at $849 on the Dell website. Most people will opt for more options on their D630 base model, which will increase the price quite a bit, but the cost is still reasonable. A...

Expert review by:



Going along with the reasonable size of the D630 is the 14.1" Widescreen display. The 14.1" WXGA+ is incredibly bright (223cd/m2), a great improvement of its predecessor the D620. The 14.1" widescreen hosts a remarkable 1440x900 native resolution. The...

Long battery life; Runs quiet; Fantastic display; Amazing durability; Logical design

Battery extends out the front (potentially awkward); A little on the heavy side
