Review Dell Latitude E5430 Notebook


A sense of balance. Dell's newest 14-inch Latitude seeks a perfect balance of cost, practicality, and portability, bolstered most notably by its newfound optional Ivy Bridge chipset. Is the E5430 everything the budget-conscious businessperson has been...

Excellent build quality, Function-over-form design, First-rate backlit keyboard, Great battery life, Exemplary performance, A smartly-designed notebook that clearly knows its place in the business market. All of the essentials are covered

Loud under moderate to heavy stress, Also quite warm under load, Screen is bright but lacks sRGB coverage and contrast ratio, A little more plastic than we'd like to see, Less noise and heat under load and perhaps an option for a better-quality screen...

Dell Latitude E5430


The Dell Latitude E5430 laptop is for veteran users who can't let go of VGA monitors, ExpressCards, and optical discs.

Anti-glare screen. Decent battery life for third-generation Intel Core processor. Removable battery. Lots of legacy ports.

Screen a little dull. 1,366 by 768 resolution screen. Some fan noise during heavy computing runs.

The Dell Latitude E5430 is a solid, reliable choice if you're looking for old school portable computing on a budget. It's got a sub-$1,000 price tag that isn't bad considering that it has a powerhouse Core i7 processor in it. If you're a Dell E-Family...

Dell Latitude E5430


With the laptop world steaming full throttle to the land of thin and light, the Dell Latitude E5430 might seem like a bit of a throwback, or at least an unglamorous workhorse. The fact is, though, not everyone needs a super-slim notebook—or the price...

Snappy performance ; Excellent battery life and power management features ; Very comfortable keyboard deck

A bit heavy and bulky for a 14-inch laptop ; Initial glitches accessing our home network

This Dell offering won't charm lovers of thin and light notebooks, but its impressive performance and battery life along with a reasonable price and good looks make it a tantalizing package for keyboard jocks more concerned with productivity than...

Price is right and good performance


Easy to set up. Computer is fast with the SSD, 16GB of memory, Core I5, and Win 10. Loaded Norton, MS Office and a few other things no issue. Battery came fully charged and accepts a charge. Computer looks new with no scratches or exterior damage at...

Received the first one and the battery was completely dead and would not charge. Received a RMA from New Egg and prepaid shipping label and received a replacement in a week. New one seems to be good. GREAT customer service from New Egg and emails at...

Great Laptop, Super fast


Would I buy another one like this. ABSOLUTELY. Will I return the second one if they ship me the wrong model again? most likely. Hey it happens, You say it has a web cam and the guy boxing up the units grabs one that does not, I understand that. Is it a...

It is an awesome unit, Boots right up and does everything you want it to do. Customer Service is Top Notch

The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is something that has nothing to do with the laptop. I had bought this because it has a webcam. The unit shipped did not. Obviously somewhat disappointed. I was about to return it and Customer service issued an...

Great bargain


I would recommend to others and buy another if I needed a laptop.

FAST ! excellent boot-up with the SSD and I5 CPU. Looks near new other than minor KBD debris. Would buy again. 14" screen not a detriment to those used to 15.6".

A tad heavy and not the sexy consumer models but really sweet deal.

Excellent Laptop! SSD and Win7, speed of light!


Get SSD, instead of CPU...

SSD - Speed!!!!!! Win 7 - is what's the best.

Would be nice to have 4 USB ports, but it's great anyway.

Very FAST!


16gig, 256Gig SanDisk X400 drive, Core i5 3320M! Most users do not have 16gig in a laptop, so this is a huge win. Its blazing fast. Boot time is nuts, if you blink or turn your head, you've missed it. The Windows 7 logo does not even finish. I bought 6...

Not for iPhone users who use iTunes. If you do not have an iPhone this will be perfect. If you have an iPhone do not install iTunes or sync it with your computer. The backups will fill your drive quickly.

Could not have been happier with this laptop!


This was my first refurbished laptop so I was a little hesitant but I couldn't be any happier. The actual laptop that was shipped was the E6430s so I'm not sure if they ran out of the E5430's or what but I appreciate the free upgrade to a little faster...

Very FAST! Great battery life

If I had to choose something it would be that the power cord is a little shorter than most laptops out there, but not too big of a deal.
