About this deal

Even in the slowest measured speed (see right screenshot) one core appears to be pinned down at the maximum clock ( 3. The bottom half of the housing then comes off, and there aren't any wires or connectors that connect the two halves to worry about. Overall, the Dell 6430 ATG is a high-performance machine that, thanks to excellent power management, can still achieve very good battery life. So what differentiates the ATG model from a regular Latitude 6430, and what makes it "all terrain grade? Beyond that, the maximum opening angle of 185° allows work in every (im)possible position - the vents are placed so that using the device on the lap does not leave you gasping for air.

While we're huge fans of the TrackPoint sticks that Lenovo puts on its ThinkPads, Dell's rubber nub sits too low relative to the keys around it, making it uncomfortable to touch. In idle usage, the average temperature for the upper side is 29 °C / 84 F, compared to the device average of 29.

The forum shall be Concord, North Carolina, USA, and the applicable law shall be that of the state of North Carolina, USA. Particularly the ThinkPad T430 and Elitebook 8460p have to provide more and brighter pixels alongside a dedicated graphics card and thus need around 5 Watts more. For those interested in how the semi-rugged ATG compares inside to the fully-rugged XFR, the picture below shows them side-by-side.

Capable of up to 16GB of DDR3 RAM and scalable SSD storage options, the Latitude E6430s is ready to cope with the most demanding work applications. If port replication and additional ports aren't needed, the FirstCradle, shown above to the right, is a lighter (just 2. With its 6-cell battery that has a capacity of 62 Wh according to HWiNFO, our Latitude lasted for 8h and 46min in the Battery Eater Reader's benchmark before it had to be reconnected to the mains again (minimum brightness, disabled WLAN and enabled energy-savings mode).

The multithread test, where processors can benefit from every additional core, is also finished well.

The E6430 produces very smooth gameplay on the screen with 42 frames per second in low details and a resolution of 1024x768. We generally prefer fanless designs for rugged and semi-rugged systems, but even efficient components in this class of machine do generate a lot of heat that must be removed to facilitate longevity and performance under less than ideal thermal circumstances.

It features a much higher brightness (and so outdoor suitability) and also implements a modern, competitive resolution of 1600x900 pixels.

Dell made it a handy little multi-purpose ruler that can be used to quickly convert degrees Fahrenheit into Celsius, inches and common fractions of inches into millimeters, and it also seems to work as a letter opener and more. The 6430 ATG is "semi-rugged," which means it can take some bumps and spills, and it feels very solid. with the way i use this (i've had it for a couple of months now), battery life is only about 4 hours, and even less if i'm gaming - but that's no problem for me, only a little inconvenient.

It ships with Genuine Windows 10 Home 64-bit Pre-installed, updated and activated with a Microsoft Authorised Refurbisher Key. Around 2007 Dell realized there was a small but growing market for tougher versions of standard notebooks. It's not the most elegant solution ever as that extra third hangs off the back of the ATG, spoiling its neat laptop profile.

When we speak of the HDD, we mean the 500 GB, fast spinning 7200 RPM Seagate Momentus model that did not exhibit any subjective irregularities during the test in our case. The backlit keyboard is also spill resistant, and has a pointing stick to join the multitouch touchpad, similar to that seen on the HP EliteBook 8460p . Coretek’s limited product warranty will apply (see section below on Defective Items Limited Warranty). The extremely solid case, Dell's well-designed energy saving and fan management and how well the Latitude manages energy are exemplary.
