Dell Latitude E6230 review

 

Dell has had a range of business notebooks with the Latitude label for well over a decade. The Dell Latitiude E6230, with a 12.5in display, is a compact and portable iteration of this evolving template – the smallest in the Latitude E family.

With built-in mobile broadband and solid build quality, the Dell Latitude E6230 is a robust and road-worthy notebook choice. The inclusion of an SSD in the review sample really helped optimise performance, although we’d suggest stretching to 256GB SSD...

-Only one obvious scuff mark in one corner of the laptop. -The battery works for about 2 hours on its own. -Not sure how reliable it will be since it's refurbished, but it seems to have worked okay so far. There have only been a couple times when the...
