Reviews for the Dell Latitude D620

Dell Latitude D620 With Core Duo 2.0GHz Processor Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
I can honestly say without hesitation that I highly recommend this laptop to just about anyone seeking a light, powerful, business laptop. The D620 has been a great machine for me so far, and I am counting on it to continue to serve me well into the next four years. My only regret is spending more money on docking stations and the new LCD when I could have just saved that money and got, say, one docking station. After it was all said and done, that was bad planning on my part and had nothing to do with the laptop. I am very pleased with this purchase.

Dell's Latitude range of corporate notebooks have been a long-term mainstay for many a business person on the move, offering a good balance of performance and battery power. Dell has recently refreshed its Latitude series and new D620 sits in the middle of the range. Our review sample came with an Intel T2500 Core Duo processor clocked at 2.0GHz; Dell currently offers the T2600 (2.16GHz) or T2400 (1.83GHz) as alternatives. Backing this up is 1GB of PC2-5300 memory, although once again Dell offers other choices.

The new Latitude D620 has a lot to live up to. Both of its predecessors, the D600 and the D610, resided for long spells on the A List. Dell has risen to the challenge by making some sweeping changes to the design. It's gone widescreen and dual-core for a start, and there's also a snazzier colour scheme replacing the sober charcoal of old. Our system (E-Value code MAG-620PCP) utilises a 2GHz T2500 Core Duo inside and scored 1.02 in our application benchmarks, thanks in part to a sensible 1GB of RAM. There are several SKUs of the D620 with differing CPUs, amounts of RAM and various screen resolutions, but some features, as well as accessories such as docking stations, are consistent throughout the range.

If the D620 is anything to go by, Dell’s new Latitude range will be a force to be reckoned with, offering great specification and impressive performance at a very affordable price. And once Dell starts to offer the integrated 3G module as an option, these machines will become even more desirable. Ultimately, Dell is getting ever closer to the ThinkPad in every respect, and anyone who’s about to sanction a business notebook rollout should give serious thought to the D620.

As the middle child in the business-focused Latitude brood, the Dell Latitude D620 is larger than the ultraportable D410 and smaller than the midsize D820. Like its big brother, the D620 has undergone an extensive overhaul, emerging with some sweet new features such as a 14.1-inch wide-aspect display (the prior model was standard aspect), an Intel Core Duo processor, a fingerprint sensor, and an EV-DO wireless WAN card. The system's mobile performance is superior to the D610's, though its battery life remains about the same. In the end, companies that have already standardized on the Latitude D600 series should feel comfortable adding the new D620 to their portable families.

Dell Latitude D620 Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
The Dell Latitude D620 is a 14-inch widescreen business notebook equipped with the latest Intel Core Duo processor. The D620 replaces the D610 and provides quite an overhaul in both design change and internal components. The new industrial charcoal grey and black look of the D620 conveys its strong build, which Dell calls "Road Ready", and with a slew of available built-in wireless communications this notebook is road ready in more ways than one.

90% Striking the best balance of features, performance, and connectivity, the Dell D620 is the ideal travel companion
Source: Laptop Mag English
Dell packs an excellent mix of features into a lightweight five-pound frame, including the fastest Verizon Wireless EV-DO connectivity. Add in a host of security options and blazing dual-core performance, and the $1,905 D620 is the best choice for businesses both large and small. The D620's ergonomics are top-notch. The full-sized keyboard has a good feel (even if it's a bit mushy), and unlike some past Latitudes, key clicks are quiet. The system comes with a pointing stick, touchpad, and a set of mouse buttons for each. We also appreciate the dedicated volume and mute buttons above the keyboard, as well as the handy Wi-Fi Catcher network locater (an LED that indicates if a wireless network is available without turning the system on).

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 Duo: Double Core processor with a very good relation of performance to current consumption. The 2 MB L2 Cache are used together by the double. The maximum capacity of 31 watts is only 4 watts more than with the Pentium M (predecessor). Both cores are lowered automatically and independently of each other by speed steps down to 1 GHz. In addition it now supports also SSE3 instructions. At least it is just as fast as a equivalent Pentium M. With applications, which were designed for multi-processors, the performance can be nearly twice as fast as with the Pentium M (e.g. CineBench around 86% fast)


T2300: » 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.


2.3 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 13 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
