Dell Latitude E6430s review
Was looking for a professional notebook with Windows 8 OS?Dell Latitude E6430s may be the answer.From various reviews on the Dell Latitude E6430s in the outcome there, the latest notebook one is pretty decent and maximum performance.Strength of the notebook is located on performance' Speedy boot time, Durable construction,Comfortable keyboard.The Dell Latitude E6430sis a triple threat for business notebook shoppers. It sports a strong yet compact metal chassis, promises speedy performance (thanks to an SSD) and has a long-lasting battery for traveling professionals. The E6430s also has plenty of features to keep IT managers at ease, including TPM, encryption and plenty of docking options. Starting at $969 ($1,678 as tested), this Latitude seems to have it all for mobile professionals.


The E6430s under review houses the super-speedy standard-voltage 2.8 GHz i5-3360M, which should be more than enough for the everyday home or business user. Users can opt for the previous generation i3-2350M or up to an Ivy Bridge i7-3520M for even more power. The dual-core i5-3360M in this case idles at 1200 MHz with Turbo Boost potential up to 3.3 GHz for both active cores. See here for more information on the i5-3360M.

As usual, the Ivy Bridge chipset includes the built-in Intel HD Graphics 4000 GPU. The integrated graphics core idles at 350 MHz and is rated at 650 MHz with up to 1200 MHz Turbo Boost. But, as seen in the graphics stress test below, the HD 4000 in the E6430s has no trouble maintaining its maximum Turbo Boost speeds even under stressful circumstances. See here for our full review of the Intel HD 4000 GPU.

For RAM, the reviewed model is equipped with two DDR3 PC3-12800 modules, 1 x 2 GB and 1 x 4 GB from Hynix and Samsung, respectively, for a total of 6 GB. DPC Latency recorded recurring latency spikes even with wireless radios disabled, which leaves us to believe that one or more of Dell’s background services may be responsible for the peaks.
