95% Dell - Latitude D630 review
Source: IT Reviews English
Dell's popular Latitude D620 deservedly won many plaudits and awards with its excellent blend of features, price and performance. The question for Dell was, when the time came for a refresh would it be able to make its successor just as popular with the corporate buyer?
The answer seems to a resounding yes, and the D630 seems destined to carry on what the D620 started.
Intel's latest mobile technology, code-named Santa Rosa and now known as Centrino Duo, was the catalyst for the refresh and in the time-honoured fashion of "if it ain't broke don't fix it", Dell just jacked up the D620, removed the old chipset and CPU and replaced it with the Centrino Duo parts.
Our review sample (E-value Code UKBSDONL-L07632) is the flagship of the 630 range coming with an Intel Core 2 Duo T7300 processor running at 2.0GHz with 4MB of L2 cache and an 800MHz FSB.

80% Review: Dell Latitude D630 notebook
Source: vnunet.com English
Following its successful Latitude D620, Dell hasn't changed the formula much for the new D630. Physically, they're almost identical, with everything encased in a sturdy, all magnesium alloy chassis that has the same, subtle, grey-speckled colour. And at 2.4kg with the standard battery, but excluding the power adapter (2.85kg including), it will suit frequent travellers. Although there's little new in terms of aesthetics, the innards have been turbo-charged with Intel's latest Santa Rosa platform. It's Dell's first notebook based on the new platform, which you can read more about in our Zepto Znote 6625WD review. Inside there's an Intel Core 2 Duo T7300 processor with 4MB L2 cache and an 800MHz front side bus (FSB) to speak to the 2GB 667MHz DDR2 Ram.

Packing mobile broadband, a host of security options, and a sturdy design, the Dell Inspiron D630 is a top-notch business notebook. The Dell Latitude D630, the update to the very popular D620, packs in all the essentials needed to keep road warriors productive on the go: a speedy Intel Next Generation Core 2 Duo processor, excellent Wi-Fi throughput, and blazing-fast mobile broadband, courtesy of Verizon Wireless. Factor in the rich security options, the 120GB hard drive (with Dell's patented StrikeZone shock-absorption technology), solid battery life, and discrete Nvidia graphics, and you have an excellent notebook for demanding business users. The D630 sports the same ergonomics that we loved about the D620: a pointing stick, dedicated volume and mute buttons, and a roomy, spill-resistant keyboard with minimal flex.

Dell Latitude D630 Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
The short time spent with the laptop was enjoyable. Would I still order from Dell? Without a doubt, but this time I would pick the machine to be bundled with 2GB and forget about this moronic idea of saving money. There are some things I wish could have been included or modified but the Latitude D630 is a solid machine that I would recommend to anyone.

The good: Strong performance; long-lived nine-cell battery; sturdy construction; bright display; comfortable keyboard; corporate-level security, including smart card reader; WWAN available as an option; lengthy three-year warranty. The bad: Somewhat heavy for a thin-and-light notebook; native screen resolution makes icons and text look small; fingerprint reader decreases mouse button size. The bottom line: Corporate users can't go wrong with the Dell Latitude D630, which integrates Intel's latest mobile platform with a business-friendly feature set and lengthy extended battery.

Dell reviews


These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) X3100: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) X3100 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on a Mobile Intel 965GM chipset. It is the successor of GMA 950 and features a fully programmable pipeline (supports Aero Glass fully and DirectX 10 with newest drivers). The peformance of the X3100 is clearly better than the GMA 950, still demanding modern games won't run fluently.

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

NVIDIA Quadro NVS 135M: Business graphics card based on the GeForce 8400M GS. Drivers and Bios are optimized for stability and business applications. The features are similar to the 8400M series.

» 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.

T7300: Mid-range (at the time of annoucement) dual core processor based on the Merom core. 

T7800: The T7800 is compareable to the X7800 Extreme CPU but featuring a lower TDP and a fixed multiplicator.

T7500:

The Core 2 Duo T7500 is a Merom based Core 2 Duo with 4MB Level 2 Cache. It is positioned in the middle class (in 2009) and performs on par with a modern P7550 or Turion II Ultra M640/M660.


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 kg:

These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 12 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

4.1 kg:

This laptop is heavy below average, compared with the average of notebooks. Therefore especially desktop replacements fit in this class of weight.


81.36%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
