Dell Latitude E6430s review

 

Summary: The Latitude E6430s is a solidly built and highly configurable 14in. business notebook with excellent security and remote management features. However, some may find it just too big and heavy to take on their travels.

Solid military-grade build quality, Good range of customisation options, Business-class security and management features

Dell Latitude E6430 Review

 

The typical budget that a customer has when he goes out to buy a notebook is spread over a big area. Someone looking for a notebook can spend as little as Rs. 25,000 for a decent entry-level notebook or as much as Rs. 40,000 for a decent mainstream...

The Dell Latitude E6430 sells at a price of Rs. 94,139 in India. It’s not exactly the cheapest notebook or the best value-for-money notebook around. It's made for businesses. It doesn’t have a spectacular performance to boast of, but it does have a...

The Latitude E6430 Review tells us that this laptop is just an average buy from consumers’ point of view. The price is too high and it does not justify neither with the performance nor features of this laptop. The only thing that you can appreciate is...
