Furthermore, if a user hooked this laptop up to an external speaker set for a presentation, that user better not plan on using complex sounds and music clips. The speaker volume levels are fine for the laptop, but the speaker has an extraordinarily tinny aura to it. The Dell Latitude D definitely managed to excel in all three categories. A plate of metal at C directly on skin will not feel comfortable. The D can be equipped with either XP or Vista, though I cannot imagine why anyone would want Vista on this machine. And for those who need more power, there are dual-core options available. Everyone knows that an active laptop is such a small space could cause heat related failures, and Dell was aware of this as well.

As far as appearances go, this is a business notebook. Is that not a pretty old and almost obsolete technology? When closed, the laptop braviwe virtually indestructible.

Head on, the screen itself is very high quality. Horizontal viewing angles are average, though the graphics on the screen tend to white out just a little bit when viewing from the side. Even though the processor is only a single core 1. Apple iPad, Microsoft Surface, Amazon Fire and more Work, play and everything in between, it’s all better on a bigger screen with great tools to boost your experience.

Hard Drive Spindle Speed. As previously mentioned, the latest series of Intel ULV processors top out at 9W…and my processor is a 5. XP boots up pretty quickly despite the RPM drive, and hibernation operations are surprisingly quick. I do miss the middle third mouse button featured on the HP Bdaview machines.


The F1-F12 keys up top are a little too thin for my tastes though, as are the Esc, Home, End, Insert, and Delete keys that are found in the function button row.

However, once this laptop gets going with a processor intensive job it is going to complain audibly. But anything that is not at least a few years old is going to choke this card. This is where you get the pay off for the trade off! One does not need a lot of power for the general office tasks, which is what the D is marketed for.

But you are only going to notice it if you push the laptop pretty hard, which is not going to happen during normal office usage. Not bad for almost 50 percent off!

No on both c, but as with any notebook do not act out any of your dreams of dropping bricks directly onto the notebook. Ultraportable Under 4 lbs. Large vraview transfers tend to slow the entire system down somewhat FTP is limited by internet speed, so I do not really see slowdown thereso copying over 40GB of data from a USB connection is going to take time I tried it.

Dell Latitude D430 User Review

At first I had to adjust a little bit to the touch and operation of this trackpad, since I was moving from the HP laptops to the D, but in the end I have found the trackpad to be very responsive and useful.

At a minimum setting, the screen does get fairly dark but it is still easy to work with under most office lighting conditions or classroom lighting conditions.

Pictures comparing the D to an HP p are shown below. Software Microsoft Office Preloaded. I love having the option to shed some backpack weight and leave the DVD drive at home, but some may not. Remember those performance drawbacks I mentioned with the hard drive and ULV processor though? My last two notebooks were both high-quality business notebooks, and I have come to expect the best in my notebooks.

Not too shabby I might say… view large image. Be respectful, keep it civil and stay on topic. Even non-Dell owners can sign up, help, and ask questions. SuperPI, which forces the processor to calculate the first 2M digits of PI, clocks in with a final time of 1m 57s.
