NO-NON­SENSE BUSI­NESS UL­TRA­BOOK

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - TEST BENCH -

The Dell Latitude 6430U is a busi­ness Ul­tra­book. Dell claims it is the most man­age­able in the world since it is vPro-en­abled. This means it uses In­tel’s set of se­cu­rity and man­age­abil­ity ca­pa­bil­i­ties. It also meets the best com­pli­ance stan­dards as far as data pro­tec­tion in con­cerned. Plus, it features 3rd gen­er­a­tion In­tel Core i5 pro­ces­sors that make this a very pow­er­ful de­vice. The bench­mark tests we ran gave it a 4000+ score that is quite de­cent by any stan­dards. How­ever, it does heat up while do­ing some of the heavy duty stuff.

The 6430 is a very con­ve­nient Ul­tra­book to use, thanks to a key­board that is spill re­sis­tant and sports keys that have a slight curve to ease your fin­gers. This track­pad is a rar­ity with left/right keys both on the top and bot­tom. There is also a track spot in the mid­dle of the keys.

The 14.0” HD (1366x768) Anti-Glare LED-back­light screen does not tire your eyes. It has good view­ing an­gles too. The sound is good, but lacks a bit of fine tuning. But then this is a busi­ness lap­top, as is ev­i­dent from the host of ports that fill the sides of the de­vice.

The bat­tery life is an­other good fea­ture as even the three-cell bat­tery can last upto six hours. There is also a six-cell op­tion that will make this de­vice heav­ier. The stor­age can be a bit of a damp­ener as our test de­vice had just 128GB SSD.

BAG IT OR JUNK IT?

A good buy for the busi­ness class
