Dell Latitude E6430s vs Latitude E6430u: classic vs Ultrabook

Hardware.Info
2 April 2013
  • Excerpt: If you're looking for a business laptop that's not too big or heavy, Dell has two options in its Latitude line. The 6430u is an Ultrabook and the E6430s is a traditional notebook. Today we will take a closer look at both. They look very different. The Latitude E6430s is bigger and heavier than the 6430u, and looks like a typical, compact business laptop. It has state-of-the-art hardware though, including an Ivy Bridge processor.

Dell Latitude E6430S Business Grade Laptop

HotHardware
17 October 2012
  • Excerpt: Business-class laptops don’t get much love these days, due to all the buzz surrounding ultrabooks and tablets. But there are still plenty of jobs that demand the processing power, storage, and general flexibility of a true business-class machine. If you still use optical media like CDs or DVDs in your day-to-day computing, a laptop with an optical drive is essential.
  • Pros: Bright display, Excellent touchpad, Sturdy, handsome design, Solid performance and battery life
  • Cons: Hefty, thanks to the metal case, Extended battery option makes the laptop bulky, Lid doesn't lock

Expert Review

  • Conclusion: At over $2,000 in our review configuration, the Latitude is undoubtedly expensive. That said, its components are more than most business users need, and Dell offers a fair number of internal options to choose among, so you can get a much cheaper version of this machine in the same rugged shell at a starting price of $799. Those who need a higher-resolution screen than the lowest-common-denominator 1,366x768 panel in this line will have to look elsewhere.
  • Pros: Rugged build quality, Great backlit keyboard, Compact for a laptop with a 14-inch screen, Excellent battery life with extended battery
  • Cons: Mediocre maximum screen resolution, Cramped touch pad and SSD, Port placement isn't ideal, Expensive in test configuration

Dell Latitude E6430s

LAPTOP Magazine
17 September 2012
  • Summary: The Dell Latitude E6430s is a strong performer. It's built for tough environments and has strong battery life to boot. While our $1,646 configuration is on the pricey side, having a solid state drive on board makes a big difference in terms of boot time and overall responsiveness. Is this our top 14-inch business notebook? Not quite.
  • Pros: Strong performance, Speedy boot time, Durable construction, Comfortable keyboard
  • Cons: Expensive, No higher-res display option, Pointing stick could be better

Dell Latitude E6430 Review

Tech2
11 February 2012
  • Excerpt: The typical budget that a customer has when he goes out to buy a notebook is spread over a big area. Someone looking for a notebook can spend as little as Rs. 25,000 for a decent entry-level notebook or as much as Rs. 40,000 for a decent mainstream one, and even  anything higher for an Ultrabook, gaming notebook or something that is a large-sized desktop replacement.

Dell Latitude E6430s review

itproportal.com
26 October 2012
  • Conclusion: The Dell Latitude E6430s punches above its form factor in many respects. The optical drive, comprehensive port selection including ExpressCard/34, and performance would all be more in keeping with a larger notebook. Unfortunately, it punches a little above the price we usually associate with notebooks this size as well. A three years next business day warranty is included as standard, going some way to mitigate the business price tag, as does the sturdy construction.
  • Pros: Decent performance for a 13in notebook, Good selection of ports, Optical drive, ExpressCard/34 slot
  • Cons: Relatively expensive, No 3G wireless

14 October 2012
  • Summary: The Latitude E6430s is a sturdy mid-range laptop offering a good mix of capabilities for mobile workers. However, the battery life is unimpressive and this model puzzlingly lacks even the option of 3G broadband capability.
  • Pros: Rugged construction, large 14in display in 13in chassis, optical drive option
  • Cons: Heavy for its size, battery life unexceptional, no 3G broadband option
