Small review of the Dell Latitude E6430:

The Dell Latitude is a creature; it is big, it’s thick, but it doesn’t include an equally large-sized screen. The keyboard doesn’t include a numerical pad. However, it’s laid out nicely and due to its width, it’s actually easy to get used to if it comes to a lot of typing. The keys are firm and also have just the right amount of tactile texture to them. The size of the keys is larger than most of the laptops that include the chiclet-isolated keys layout. The laptop has close to no spacing between keys, so there is hardly any possibility of earning mistakes. There is also a keyboard backlighting, so it’s simple to work when it is dark. It automatically turns the backlight off when you do not use it for a couple minutes; you can also tweak the brightness of the backlight. The trackpad is a tad small, but the buttons on it are really nicely made. They are not tacky; they’re tender but true and they do not overlook a click.

The DVD drive has a small clip that springs open and can be used for removing the DVD drive. It is possible to plug in any additional optical drive from its place in moments. There is also an ExpressCard slot and an eSATA outlet for external drives. It is not like it’s complete with features either. As an instance, it doesn’t include a webcam, which can be quite shocking considering that the laptop costs close to a lakh.

Advantage of the Dell Latitude E6430:

In the center of The Latitude E6430 is Intel’s Core i5 3320M, a dual-core processor that utilises four threads whatsoever. The processor is clocked at 2.6GHz and it is going to go up to 3.3 GHz with Turbo Boost enabled. There is 4GB of RAM on the notebook, but Dell for some reason shipped it with a 32-bit variant of Windows 7 Professional. This means not the whole amount of RAM can be used.

The Latitude E6430 has a 14-inch screen and runs on the slightly greater resolution of 1600 x 900, better than most of the notebooks in the purchase price range beneath it. We would have enjoyed a more spacious 1920 x 1080 screen though.

The Latitude E6430 includes a pointing stick like the ThinkPad line of notebooks from Lenovo. The pointer is horizontal and is somewhat difficult to use for longer periods. Obviously, users can get used to it after some time. There’s a second pair of mouse click switches for this reason. There are also dedicated volume up, down and mute switches, so it is fast to control the speakers on the laptop. There are status indicators found directly over the keyboard, which means you don’t need to keep peeping down in the laptop. There are indications on the lid of the laptop, too.

Performance

When it comes to functionality, the Latitude E6430 is nothing spectacular. It matches the operation of notebooks roughly from the Rs. 65,000 range. Tasks such as video encoding and file compression do not take too much time, but a faster processor would have helped a whole lot longer. The Latitude E6430 also comes with a hard drive, which hampers performance further.

As an example, file transfer tests reveal rates of just 74.08MB/s While reading and 61.79MB/s while composing. Solid-state drives present on notebooks much cheaper, offer much faster speeds compared to this, also it helps with the general responsiveness of applications. Graphics performance does not impress . With just a HD4000 under the hood, this isn’t a notebook where you’ll be running high quality games.

When it comes to movie viewing and music listening, things are Pretty great. The display includes decent colours and it is a matte finish, so there’re hardly any reflections. Viewing angles aren’t too good and you’re going to come across colors going dim once you see from either side or in the top and bottom. The speakers on the notebook are put facing you, under the keyboard. The speakers although not very loud are very well detailed.

In our stressful battery test, it lasted close to 2 hours on its own 6-cell battery. Things do not get too hot. There is a sizable port on the left side that helps maintain the Latitude E6430 well

Conclusion

The Dell Latitude E6430 sells at a cost of Rs. 94,139 at India. It is not exactly the cheapest laptop or the Very Best value-for-money notebook around. It’s created for companies. It does not have a spectacular Performance to boast of, but it does have a strong build and it’s likely to last You a very long time. If you’re the Sort of person who mostly works on Documents and spreadsheets using the Internet and likes to chill out watching a Film every now and then, then you’ll find this to be a good long-term Buy.
