Reviews for the Dell Latitude ATG D620

Dell Latitude ATG Is The Ultimate In Durability
Source: Direct Laptops English
The Dell Latitude ATG is the first ultra-durable laptop from Dell. It comes equipped with everything that a rugged, outdoor laptop owner would need. For starters, it has a magnesium-alloy shell with a shock-mounted hard drive. This is important because when you drop your laptop when it's on your hard drive is the most vulnerable part to be damaged. It also has scratch resistant paint to help protect you from all of your little adventures. And with the outdoors in mind, you are going to need a screen that you will be able to see. Have you ever taken a laptop outside, just to find yourself squinting your eyes because you can barely see anything? That probably is taken care of with the ultrabright display. It is two and a half times brighter then it's very similar Dell Latitude D620. You certainly won't have any problems seeing this laptop outdoors. But what if it's dark outside? No need to worry there either.

67% Dell Latitude ATG

Dell's first effort at a rugged notebook is a qualified success. It's certainly well built, and in spite of the lack of official statistics we're happy it will stand up to far more abuse than the average notebook. It's debatable whether its semi-rugged status will truly allow it to be used for mission-critical applications, but the price is appealing. And if you simply want a laptop that will last for thousands of miles, the ATG fits the bill. A good first stab at the semi-ruggedised laptop market. It isn't up to the tough standards of others, though.

70% Dell Latitude ATG D620 - Semi-Rugged Notebook
Source: Trusted Reviews English
Dell knows how to build great notebooks, and the Latitude D620 that this ATG model is based on is a great machine. However, even with the super-bright screen, shock resistant hard disk and solid steel hinges, this doesn’t really feel like a rugged machine in the way the ToughBook CF-74 does, and that’s not even a fully rugged ToughBook! If you’re just looking for a version of the D620 that you can use out in bright sunlight, then the ATG will fit the bill, but don’t go thinking that it will survive life out in the desert or continual drops on the floor. If Dell puts enough resource behind this market sector, I have no doubt that it could come up with a compelling alternative to the ToughBook, but this first generation ATG isn’t it.

While broken, damaged, or otherwise banged-up systems are the bane of every laptop owner, rugged and semirugged systems (companies apply the terms loosely according to their own standards) are often hampered by limited configuration options and outdated parts. Dell hopes to energize the rugged laptop market with its first such model, the Latitude ATG D620. Rather than designing a new system from the ground up, the $2,499 Dell ATG--our review unit configuration cost $3,145--is a beefed-up version of the popular Latitude D620 laptop, adding a new outer case, a shock-mounted hard drive, and other heavy-duty extras, which tack about $1,000 onto the price of a similar, nonrugged Latitude D620.

Dell Latitude ATG D620 Semi-Rugged Notebook Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
The Latitude ATG D620 is really going to appeal to companies that deploy Dell Latitude notebooks to office workers, but also need a solution for field workers. Until now, a utility company that used Latitude D620 notebooks for their desk bound energy traders would have to buy laptops from a different company for their crew out repairing downed wires. Now the IT shop can deploy ATG D620 notebooks to those field workers and use the same image and consistent equipment and peripherals. This will save on costs and headaches.

70% Dell Latitude ATG D620 Semi-Rugged Notebook Review
Source: PC Mag English
Think of Dell business laptops and you might get an image of white-collar workers sitting in an office or aboard a plane, typing away in a comfortable indoor environment. But in situations where someone needs to work outdoors or anywhere that's exposed to dust or harsh weather, an ordinary laptop probably won't cut it. You need something tougher. The Dell Latitude ATG D620 ($3,126 direct) is Dell's first attempt at the semi-rugged space. Its outer casing has additional padding to withstand dust, spills, and a heap of other outdoor accidents. Just prepare to pay a pretty penny for such protection.

80% Dell debuts its first semi-rugged notebook, and it's a winner.
Source: Laptop Mag English
Muscling in on Toughbook territory, Dell has launched its first semi-rugged notebook, the Latitude ATG D620. With its sturdy case, data protection features, and ultrabright display, plus optional mobile broadband, this system should satisfy demanding field workers and anyone else who needs a fast Core 2 Duo notebook that can take a beating. But what separates this laptop from its competitors is the peace of mind that comes from having the same drive image and docking solutions as other Dell portables.

Comment

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 950: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on Mobile Intel 945GM chipset. It is a faster clocked version of the GMA 900 and supports no hardware T&L (Transform & Lightning) accelleration (which is required for some games).

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).

The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.


T7200: Mid-range (at the time of annoucement) dual core processor based on the Merom core. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


14.1": 14 inch display size is a mixture between the small formats of subnotebooks and the 15 inch standard display. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


3.1 kg: This weight is average for notebooks. Therefore the numerous mass of laptops with 15 inch display fits in this class of weight.


Dell: Dell Inc. is a multinational technology corporation that develops, manufactures, sells, and supports personal computers and other computer-related products. Based in Texas, Dell employs more than 82,700 people worldwide (2009). In 2006, Dell purchased the computer hardware manufacturer Alienware. In most countries, the laptops are directly sold to consumers by Dell and each notebook custom-assembled according to a selection of options. Market share regarding sales of personal computers in 2007 (market research IDC): HP 18.9 %, Dell 16.4 %, Acer 9.9 %, Lenovo 7.5 %, Apple 5.7 %
