Dell Latitude 6430u Ultrabook review

 

Business-focused features, no touchscreen

Solid design ; Comfortable backlit keyboard ; Removable battery ; Great connectivity

No touchscreen ; Average screen resolution ; Useless second mouse ; Heavy

We have no difficulty in recommending the Dell Latitude 6430u as a worthwhile business laptop. The real question is whether or not it stands as a worthy alternative to a top quality consumer Ultrabook like the Sony Pro Vaio 13 or Acer Aspire S7 . Price...

Dell Latitude 6430u review

 

The first Ultrabook we've seen with a replaceable battery

As a Dell laptop, you can specify it in numerous ways. Core i3 to Core i7 processors, up to 8GB of RAM, SSDs up to 245GB with built-in self-encryption. So whatever you want from an Ultrabook, as long as it's not the slimmest one available, you should...

Dell Latitude 6430u review

 

The toughest Ultrabook on the market. But has Dell had to sacrifice performance?

Military-grade design; Good performance; Quick SSD; Decent battery life; Lengthy warranty; Customisable

Poor quality screen; A little chunky and heavy for an Ultrabook

With military grade design and excellent battery life, the 6430u will satisfy the need of most business users. The only weakness is the screen. The low-quality means it's not ideal for graphical work.

Dell Latitude 6430u hands-on review

 

Business ultrabook with replaceable battery

The first thing we noticed about Dell's Latitude 6430u ultrabook was its soft-touch finish. Dell said this was introduced to make it easier to grip while feeling high-end and resisting smudge marks. And we agree, as the chassis remained almost entirely...

Dell Latitude 6430u (HD+)

 

The Dell Latitude 6430u (HD+) adds a 1,600 by 900 display to a formidable business laptop, and packs some multimedia oomph as well.

Sweet HD+ (1,600 by 900) resolution screen. Compatible with WiGig wireless dock. Good keyboard. Good multimedia creation scores

Relatively short battery life for a business ultrabook. A bit pricey for what it offers

The Dell Latitude 6430u (HD+) takes the Dell Latitude 6430u—an Editors' Choice as a business ultrabook—and adds a higher-resolution screen and an upgraded processor. It also ditches Windows 8 in favor of the more business-friendly Windows 7. There's...

Review: Dell Latitude 6430u offers high quality throughout

 

This corporate ultrabook is as classy as it gets. It's pricey, but has good looks and a great feel, as well as top-notch performance and features.

Good performance ; Good warranty and support options ; Great ergonomics and feel

Travel weight is a somewhat hefty four pounds ; No 1080p video

In a world of cheap-feeling merchandise, the Latitude 6430u stands apart. It’s well-built, tastefully designed, and very comfortable to use. It’s also fast and available with a wide variety of warranty...

Dell Latitude 6430u Review

 

This business class ultrabook offers a well-rounded mix of performance and portability. But is this Latitude laptop worth its $1,500 price tag?

Comfortable keyboard and touchpad ; Strong performance levels ; Sturdy design

Lackluster display ; Limited storage capacity ; The Dell Latitude 6430u is a solid well-rounded device that offers the performance business users need on the go.
