Review Dell Latitude E6430s Notebook

 

Fast Business. The Latitude E6430s offers nearly the same dimensi

Solid magnesium alloy build quality; Backlit keyboard with excellent feedback; Powerful CPU and GPU performance; Easily upgradeable; Good battery life; Docking port and Modulay bay expandability; Quiet fan during light use

Thick and heavy; Loud fan under medium to heavy use; Screen could have been brighter for improved outdoor usability; Loud keyboard; No higher display resolution options; Battery life not improved over original Latitude E6330; No latch/magnet for closed...

Aside from a very small hit to battery life, nothing else was sacrificed in the 14-inch upgrade. The excellent Turbo Boost potential in another great plus for performance-hunters seeking the most from their systems.

Dell Latitude E6430s

 

If your fingers have only ever fondled the mostly plastic consumer laptops on display in stores, you might be inclined to settle for such a system for business use. But even if you don't need the extra security features and other amenities that come...

Rugged build quality ; Great backlit keyboard ; Compact for a laptop with a 14-inch screen ; Excellent battery life with extended battery

Mediocre maximum screen resolution ; Cramped touch pad and SSD ; Port placement isn't ideal ; Expensive in test configuration

For road warriors or those who just need a tough, compact laptop, Dell's Latitude E6430s is a great choice with a stellar keyboard. We only wish there were an option for a higher-resolution screen.

Hands on: Dell Latitude E6430S review

 

Unsnappily-named lightweight workhorse

Expert review by:

Dell Latitude E6430s review

 

Dell's Latitude E6430s is a mid-range laptop designed for life as a corporate workhorse, and is claimed to fit a 14in display into a 13in-size chassis, making it about 18 percent lighter than other systems with comparable screens.

Rugged construction, large 14in display in 13in chassis, optical drive option

Heavy for its size, battery life unexceptional, no 3G broadband option

The Latitude E6430s is a sturdy mid-range laptop offering a good mix of capabilities for mobile workers. However, the battery life is unimpressive and this model puzzlingly lacks even the option of 3G broadband capability.
