Reviews for the Dell Latitude E6530
Source: Hot Hardware
As one of the heftier 15.6" laptops on the market, the Latitude E6530 makes up for it by staying cool under pressure, keeping fan noise to an absolute minimum, throwing in a number pad, being extremely rigid and rugged, and offering both a DVD writer and a massive 9-cell slice battery that admittedly pokes out of the rear a bit. No question, many of these things you'd need to have a use for to appreciate.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
3520M: Fastest Ivy-Bridge-based Dual-Core, 2,9 - 3,6 GHz core clock» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
