Review Dell Latitude E6430 Notebook


Ivy evolution. It took a bit over a year before Dell updated its new Latitude range business laptops for the known reasons. Our review reveals which new features we can expect apart from Intel's latest Ivy Bridge generation - and what the 14-inch...

Screen is too dark for outdoor use, The - tactually solid - keyboard sometimes produced a (somewhat clattery) loud typing noise, Our configuration lacks a lot to make us perfectly happy - but particularly the HD+ screen. Thus, we had to live with a...

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

Relatively bulky and heavy

Dell Latitude E6430 ATG


The Dell Latitude E6430 ATG is the latest in a long line of rugged and semi-rugged laptops from Dell. The company gotten very good at taking some of the rugged tech used in the tank-like Dell Latitude E6420 XFR and applying it to the semi-rugged...

Semi-rugged construction. Screen has great visibility indoors and out. Strong performance. All-day battery life

Big and heavy. Pricey

For professional computing out in the field, the Dell Latitude E6430 ATG ruggedized business is hard to beat.

Dell Latitude E6430 Review


The Latitude E6430 has a lot going for it: strong performance, extraordinary battery life, a world-class keyboard and an attractive chassis that's designed to take some punishment. Users may want to consider the similarly-priced 14-inch ThinkPad T430 ,...

Durable design, Long battery life with 9-cell battery, Responsive keyboard, Strong performance

Heavy for 14-inch laptop, Uncomfortable pointing stick

Dell Latitude E6430


Just in time for fall shopping, the Dell Latitude E6430 is a 14-inch laptop that hopes to break through. It has a sturdy design, very strong performance and extra long battery life. It does weigh more than other similar laptops and has a few other...

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...

Dell Latitude E6430 Notebook Review


The most sought-after computing brand Dell has come up with a new notebook, Latitude E6430. It has a sturdy design accompanied with matte finish and attractive display. You can expect good performance form this laptop.

Bright & clear display ; Rugged body ; Decent performance

Bit pricey ; Slightly over-weight

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...

Dell Latitude E6430 ATG review


Dell has kitted out its latest all terrain business laptop with Ivy Bridge chips and plenty of hard-wearing features, but it doesn't offer the level of customisation we're used to.

Consumer review by: Eric I. (

One of Dell's best laptops


Have these at work, they were the standard laptop issue for two years. Had virtually no warranty issues, talking to a Dell repair tech, he told me they almost never have service calls on the E6430, he considered it Dell's best laptop ever. They are a...

Fast, decent graphics, SSD, 8GB RAM, decent cooling, durable, onboard DVD

Slightly heavier than current-generation E7450, may not fit on airline tray tables

Nicely done refurb


Came with 9 cell 87 WH Dell battery. I probably would have preferred a smaller 6 cell batter that doesn't stick out the back of the laptop case. The Sandisk SSD does well in read benchmarks (500+ MBs sequential reads) but only so-so in write benchmarks...

Very little signs of wear. Many plastic surfaces that normally would have shown wear had been replaced ; Slightly faster CPU than expected (2.7 Ghz Core i5 3340m) ; New SSD (Sandisk Z400s) ; Battery in good shape (health rating is 82%, about 190 charge...

Keycaps have been resurfaced by applying heavy duty opaque overlays that unfortunately keep the keyboard back lighting from being easily/reasonably visible.Except for the lack of back lighting, the keyboard looks nice
