Dell Latitude 6430u Notebook Review

May 30, 13 Dell Latitude 6430u Notebook Review

Posted by in Featured, Laptops & Tablets, Reviews

Dell has come a long way with their Latitude series notebooks built for business mobility and the Latitude 6430u is one of their latest offering for people looking for a durable and manageable vPro-enabled  Ultrabook. While I didn’t use this notebook for business purposes so, this review is going to focus on the overall feel and experience of using it in a day-to-day basis away from an enterprise setup and its security which is one of the strengths of this machine. Design The Dell Latitude 6430u is a 14-inch business-class Ultrabook with an illusion of being slim due to its magnesium frame contrasting its black lid and underside. It measures just 20.9mm and weighs 3.7 lbs. making it lighter than your typical 14-incher. Despite its sleek looks, this Ultrabook is feels sturdy and solid. In fact, it is the only one subjected to 16 MIL-STD-810G which is a range of tests done to measure its durability. The lid sports a rubbery matte finish making it immune to fingerprints and contributes to its ruggedly sexy looks. You can also see the LED indicator lights from the outside near the hinge. On the left side of this notebook you’ll find the charging port, a full-sized VGA port, a USB 3.0 port, headset jack, and a hard switch for the WiFi squeezed in. On the right side is the LAN port and a powered USB 3.0 port, and the SD card slot that is easily missed because it was set to deep. Additional ports for HDMI and eSATA/USB combo can be found at the back on both sides of the vent. There’s no optical drive on this one which you probably won’t need anyway. What’s nice here is that the battery slide can easily be removed and replaced to give it more juice on the go. It can also easily be equipped with 3G/4G mobile broadband if required. Display Opening the lid (which you can tilt all the way down) you will be greeted with the 14-inch...

Dell supports Childhope Asia, empowers street children through education

Dell recently announced that it has joined Childhope Asia Philippines’ (CHAP) advocacy to help close the learning gap among underserved children. CHAP will receive a Dell Powering the Possible grant that will facilitate its aim to empower street children through education and computer literacy. CHAP works with the underprivileged street children and out-of-school youth in Metro Manila to give them equal opportunities for learning through several programs, including basic literacy and numeracy, alternative learning system basic education, computer literacy, as well as life skills, values and primary health education. To facilitate its outreach and protection/education program, the charity is aided by mobile education vans with street educators that are deployed to 18 locations daily where street children are commonly found—in parks or on the sidewalks of urban centers—to teach children there. The core of this partnershipis to provide the underserved youth and educators with access to technology and serve as a catalyst for lifelong learning and career readiness. Dell technology will be used to equip the mobile education vans with laptops and the required education software to accomplish the work of accredited programs administered by CHAP, benefiting an estimated 500 children. In addition, the grant will also enable CHAP to set-up a computer lab with Dell desktops to provide digital learning and basic computer literacy classes to 120 selected street children brought to the charity’s premises and to the areas in Metro Manila where CHAP operates. The computers at the center will also be installed with a database program that will be used by the 25 street educators for recording and tracking the progress of the street children under the program. This will greatly help in monitoring the welfare of the children and in evaluating the impact of the program to the beneficiaries.

DELL launches XPS 12 Ultrabook, also converts into a tablet

Yesterday, Dell launched the newest addition to its XPS portfolio, the Dell XPS 12 Ultrabook, a 12.5 inch Windows 8 Ultrabook. It is Dell’s first Windows 8-powered offering and among the first of its kind to hit the local market. While some of you might find the Dell XPS 12’s display a bit odd considering that its predecessor’s (Dell XPS 13) display is recognized by many as a clear-cut display for an Ultrabook, fact is the Dell XPS 12 is a hybrid – a notebook that can also be used as a tablet. It features a flip hinge which allows you to tilt the display backward and forward into its place to use it as a regular laptop, or a rather chunky tablet. Dell notebooks, especially the XPS line are known for its solid construction and Dell keeps on improving that. That improvement can be seen on the machined aluminum panel rim, carbon fiber back and base, as well as the magnesium palm rest on the Dell XPS 12 Ultrabook. What concerns us is how well the flip hinge design used for shifting the XPS 12 from notebook to a tablet will hold especially on accidental bumps or drops. The Dell XPS 12 Ultrabook’s Full HD, 400 nit, IPS display and edge-to-edge Corning Gorilla Glass display is remarkable. It has wide viewing angles, brilliant colors and sharp contrast even when we tried it outside the event area where it’s bright. The touchscreen is also smooth and responsive. The Dell XPS 12 is a bit hefty at 1.52kg for an Ultrabook and could have also been better if the SSD storage was bigger than 128 GB. If you’re interested in being different with your notebook, the Dell XPS 12 will fit your needs but prepare to shell out a hefty Php65,990 for it. Dell XPS 12 Ultrabook Specs: 3rd Generation Intel Core i5 3317U processor (3M cache, up to 2.6 GHz) Windows 8 12.5” Full HD WLED with TrueLife, 400 nit, 1920×1080 resolution, Corning Gorilla...

Dell XPS 14, premium 14-inch Ultrabook starts at Php68,990

Aside from the Inspiron 14z that was launched last week, Dell also unveiled their premium Ultrabook, the XPS 14 which retails for a hefty Php68,990. The Dell XPS 14 features Dells superb design and craftsmanship. It has a highly-durable machined aluminum chassis, bonded Corning Gorilla Glass and a silicone base in a thin 20.7mm design. It’s a bit hefty though for an Ultrabook having a weight of 2.1kg. Powering the basic configuration of the Dell XPS 14 is a 3rd generation Intel Core i5, 4GB DDR3 RAM and an NVIDIA GeForce GT 630M discrete graphics. A 32GB SSD and 500GB HDD hybrid drive takes care of the storage for this machine which has the Intel Rapid Start technology for faster boot and wake up times. The 14-inch display on the XPS 14 features a 400-nit brightness and an above average 1600 x 900 resolution with a thin bezel. This Ultrabook also features a backlit keyboard and a generous-sized touchpad on a magnesium palmrest with soft touch paint. Unlike the Inspiron 14z, there’s no optical drive here. Dell claims that the built-in 8-cell Li-Po battery can give you up to 11 hours straight computing. We highly doubt that but with a Li-Po type of battery, expect faster charging times. The Dell XPS 14 comes in either a Core i5 or Core i7 configuration with a retail price of Php68,990 and Php79,990 respectively. Dell XPS 14 Specs: Intel Core i5-3317U (1.7GHz) Intel Core i7-3517U (1.9GHz) Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit) 14.0” HD+ (900p) True Life Infinity Display (400-nit) 4GB DDR3 RAM 8GB DDR3 RAM NVIDIA GeForce GT 630M (1GB GDDR5 VRAM) 32GB SSD + 500GB HDD 128GB SSD + 500GB HDD 1x USB 3.0, 1x USB 3.0 PowerShare, Ethernet port, HDMI, card reader 1.3MP webcam with dual array digital microphones High Definition Audio Backlit keyboard 2.1 kg Php68,990 Php79,990 Related posts: Dell unveils their XPS 14z premium laptop Dell outs XPS 13 Ultrabook, starts at Php59,590 Dell launches the Inspiron 14z Ultrabook, comes with Skullcandy...

Dell launches the Inspiron 14z Ultrabook, comes with Skullcandy speakers

The Inspiron is Dell’s lineup of laptops for everyday computing. Yesterday, Dell unveiled the Inspiron 14z which is their first Ultrabook under the Inspiron name which mixes ultraportability and high performance along with a high response time. Although not being highlighted much (no sight of the Skull logo either), this Ultrabook comes with built-in Skullcandy stereo speakers. It may not mean much to the audiophiles out there but for a lot of Filipinos who are impressed with Beats, having the Skullcandy brand on a laptop can also be a deciding factor. The Dell Inspiron 14z sports a 14-inch screen with a 1366 x 768 resolution. The screen-size is pretty unusual for an Ultrabook and this one also has a built-in DVD drive. Still, Dell is insisting it’s an Ultrabook with its 0.8” thin body with heavily rounded edges, and hybrid drive consisting of 32GB SSD and 500GB SATA Hard drive. Powering the Inspiron 14z is Intel’s 3rd Generation Core i5-3317U processor along with 4GB RAM and an AMD Radeon HD 7570M video card manning the graphics front. The Inspiron 14z and its sleek, brushed aluminum finish construction is now available with an SRP of Php44,990. Dell Inspiron 14z (5423) Specs: 3rd Generation Intel Core i5-3317U processor (3M cache, 1.7GHz up to 2.6GHz) Genuine Windows 7 Home Basic (64-bit) 14” HD Widescreen, 200-nit (1366 x 768) 4GB DDR3 1600MHz AMD Radeon HD 7570M with 1GB GDDR5 500GB SATA HDD, 32GB SSD 2 Skullcandy Speakers with Waves MaxxAudio 4 Built-in DVD Drive Native HD 1.0 MP webcam with digital microphone 1x USB 3.0, 1x USB 3.0 PowerShare, Ethernet port, HDMI, card reader 1.87kg.
