Dell Latitude 12 Rugged Extreme review

 

Dell's hybrid laptop is ready to weather the elements

Demonstrably water-resistant ; Long projected battery life ; Resistive touchscreen

Tough to use one-handed ; Very rigid latch ; Blurry display in motion

The Dell Latitude 12 Rugged Extreme, the first rugged laptop-tablet hybrid, was built to withstand all sorts of environmental hazards, and it shows.

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...

Dell Latitude E6230 review

 

The Latitude E6230 is the smallest model in Dell's updated E Series of corporate laptops, and offers mobile professionals an impressive system that combines excellent build quality with decent performance in a compact form factor.

Compact 12.5in system, good build quality, mobile broadband

Standard battery relatively small

The Latitude E6230 crams a great deal of functionality into a stylish and compact system that exudes quality, making this system a good choice for those who need to take their work out on the road. Buyers may want a larger battery than is provided as...

Mixed Feelings

 

I ordered this unit. My packaging was marked i5 3320m 2.6 ghz, but the laptop I received had an i7-3520M 2.9ghz proc. The laptop came equipped with Intel HD Graphics 4000 and Bluetooth. The rest of the listed specs appear to be perfectly accurate. (I...

The battery holds a charge for about 1.5 hours, which is pitiful. Going into the BIOS, I can see that the battery health is "poor". A new OEM battery is like $120, so buyer beware. I would expect that a refurbished system would have come with a bit...

Purchased via Newegg

 

The screen brightness varies, and this may upset some users.

System Specs Dell Latitude E6230 (12.5" 1366x768 Display) Core i5-3320M CPU @ 2.6 GHZ (2 Cores Hyper-threaded, Intel 4000 Graphics) 4 GB DDR3 1600 MT/s (PC3 - 12800) SODIMM (1 Module) 2 x USB 3.0 ports (1 Charging, 1 Normal) 1 ESATA/USB 2.0 Combo Port

NO DVD DRIVE Do not buy this if that upsets you, it's a Netbook not a Laptop.

Which i5 does it have

 

Looks reasonably priced

From the item description, it is not clear if it has 2nd or 3rd gen i5 processor. Processor's model number should be included.

Great Machine, Poor Refurb Job

 

In proper form, this is a great laptop. If you are looking for small, light, and powerful you have found it. I feel bad dinging the star off this laptop because the machine itself doesn't deserve anything less than five stars but the refurbisher really...

The pros are all about the machine itself, should you get one that is properly refurbished you will be very happy with it. It is everything you might expect from the Latitude series, nimble, light, well constructed, and uses generally high end components

The cons for me are entirely the result of the refurb job. It's not enough to send back and try again but its going to cost me a few bucks out of pocket and some time to correct ; I'll start with the trivial; They left a black, high grit tape on the...
