Dell Latitude E6530 Review: Business Class Performance

 

There was a time, not too terribly long ago, when a machine was immediately glossed over by average consumers as soon as the "business" label was placed on it. If you've worked in the corporate world within the past 10 to 15 years, you know exactly...

Great display viewing angles ; Fantastic spill-resistant keyboard ; Fast overall performance ; Rigid and rugged ; Quiet and cool

Keyboard is positioned oddly ; Display colors are a tad muted ; Bulky and a little hevy ; Pricey

Performance-wise, the Latitude E6530 excels in a world where business-grade laptops are typically relegated to be average at best. The new Latitude E Series could certainly be considered the new face of business laptops, where design matters, power is...

Recon with 'like new' warranty

 

The outside of the display panel was 'reconditioned' but OK looking. Had one 'stuck' pixel on the display, but was able to 'massage' it back into working order.

System was fast with these specs Keyboard looked new 'Built in' system recovery mode will make it extremely easy to put the system back to 'out of box' settings

Not really a con, but I would recommend to the re-builder - rename the boot option from Restore to RECOVER to prevent a lay person from accidentally deleting all of their data.

Consumer review by: Richie M. (newegg.com)

Great value

 

Has just about any output / input needed. Much more solid construction than the typical 'consumer grade' laptop. Shipping package was a little suspect until I opened and saw how they had it wrap-packed to a cardboard suspension system. Again, there is...

Outstanding value. Laptop has pretty much all features and outputs ; Comes with a bare installation of Windows 7 64bit. I found it to be an excellent setup with no bloatware installed. It also comes with a free upgrade to Windows 10. After setting up...

Does not come with any software or restore disc
