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.
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
