Excerpt: I have bought a dell latitude D430 3 months back and I have to say that its the best you will get for business purpose. I tried different brands but I was not satisfied with them, but Dell Latitude D430 series has sufficed all my requirements, rather I would say for business requirements. Its sleek, weightless and small just designed for travel and perfomance.
Summary: I bought this to replace my aging C400. with everyone in a panic over XP no longer being supported I can pick up nice older laptops for really cheap. I switched to Linux a decade ago after XP was such a disappointment compared to w2k. I'm using this laptop every day and it does everything I need (Firefox, Thunderbird, OpenOffice).
Summary: These little laptops are cheap, extremely light, and built like a rock. The C2D processor and 2gb of RAM is more than enough for basic computing and even video streaming. Its a little sluggish on startup, and doesnt handle multitasking as well as newer laptops, but considering the price, it performs VERY well. I've bought 3 of these for elderly family members who are first time computer users, and they have been great. HIGHLY recommended.
Summary: I really like the team, so go buy it very good, and give very good rendimeinto in speed and Electica spend little energy. I really like the team, so go buy it very good, and give very good rendimeinto in speed and Electica spend little energy.
DELL LATITUDE D430 NOTEBOOK 1.2GHZ 2GB RAM 80GB HD Mac OSX Leopard (4511)
7 February 2014
Summary: Great system! With 2.0GB Ram and 80.0GB and Intel dual Core, Dwere Tech Research Team installed OSX Leopard (Now) and Windows 8 Pro and the system runs perfectly. We are in the process of testing it with SSD drive. Stay tuned for tat review.
Summary: its a good laptop for my 12 year old. the seller went above and beyond by sending a brand new battery to our home for it no extra charge. very friendly seller felt like i was dealing with a friend instead of stranger.
Summary: The previous review covered most of the stuff a person should know about these laptops, but I have a few things to add. Like the previous reviewer, I love the compactness of these laptops, the low weight, and the solid build. The CPU comes in 1.06 GHZ, 1.2GHz and 1.33 GHz Core Single or Core2Duo. The video uses the chipset's GMA950 video chip. For web use and office apps they're fine.

Summary: This is a fast that's extremely solidly built and works with all my other Dell Latitude peripherals perfectly. I had originally wanted a netbook but I'm much happier with the D430 from Dell. The option of using a full Dock or a Docking base for portability makes this notebook super flexible. Really solid build makes it travel well.
