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

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

Dell Latitude E6430 Notebook Review

 

Dell Latitude E6430 is a notebook with a good design and impressive build quality. It performs decently and has a good RAM.

• 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...
