Summary: This computer seems extremely heavy for its size. Once it's been on for a few hours it stops recognizing two of its three usb ports and it's often a frustrating hunt to determine which of the usb ports will choose to work today. if you don't have the ability to connect multiple devices to a single usb port you will have to choose which application (printer, mouse, etc,) you will run or whether you want to spend the time to reboot.
Summary: This computer was advertised as having Genuine Windows 7 Professional. We are now getting pop ups that the Windows 7 installed is "not genuine". We are unable to install our virus protection because of this. Seller has not emailed me back yet to tell me exactly what is installed on the laptop. Not happy at the moment, my husband is even less happy as its expensive to have a certified Windows 7 program installed.
Summary: I buy tons of Dell equipment as part of my job, and I purchase most of it (except for big servers) through Amazon. Every now and then you get a product that is Dead On Arrival (regardless of the manufacturer). Stuff like that just happens, and I get that. But this is the first time we have bought from Technology Galaxy through Amazon. My helpdesk technician determined within a few minutes of opening the box that the laptop we purchased was DOA (bad display).
Summary: Latitude E5430 review unit features an Intel Core i5-3360M dual-core CPU with Intel HD Graphics 4000 (the same CPU as the E5530). Dell’s Latitude models always put practicality first. With a perpetually no-nonsense design and solidity that rivals even the fiercest opponents, it’s one of the first places many businesspeople look when considering a primary machine.
Summary: The unit was delivered with less memory and a smaller hard drive than advertised. I kept it as it was still adequate for my purposes, but this might be an issue for others. I selected this model for features such as size, sturdiness, maintainability, included optical drive, matte screen with a more square aspect ratio than most current models, and Linux compatibility. I've only been using it a few weeks, but other than the discrepancies noted above I'm quite pleased.
Summary: This is a great warhorse for a corporate/business laptop fleet (my use case), or if you are a home user looking for something with a solid body at the expense of sleek looks, then here you go.
