Despite being a relatively dated review I still do want to comment. I find that the few comments that have been published dont quite justified one of the better Dell machines. I do find that the E6530 is a better build machine that its successor E6540. For the quad-core i7 with Nvidia it is more responsive than the later E6540 and I still recommend the E6530 over its successor for the few user that care to take my advice, if one can be found that is. Even used, its is of better value. Sadly I dont think we are gonna see more laptop build as the 6x30 series that had been produced by Dell. By my reckoning the series is gonna outlive many of their peers from other manufacturers.
Excellent choice for a business premium class laptop. Offers many options i.e. caddy for a 2nd hdd instead of the optical dvd, slice 9 cell battery for an additional 5-6 hours for a total of min. 10 hours without a charger!!! I have upgraded mine to a 256gb ssd Samsung 830 series and 16gb RAM (always with a 64 bit O.S.) The 6530 will "eat up" several heavy tasks at the same time. No problems experienced for the last 18 months. By the way it has a spill proof keyboard!!
I'm using this laptop for about a year and i've experienced serious problems: - two hard disks changed in three months... with data loss! - the screen was loosely attached at delivery - i still have a problem of electric chock while touching the metal part of the cover ........
I have got a new one...There is no obvious reason, the cursor will jump to locations within or outside of the random locations as you type. There is no solution for that. Dell sais is a problem of software and they don’t give the solution, as it's reported for a lot of people. Look for that on the net... Don’t buy it.
Business premium. The Dell Latitude belongs to the high-end business class and must meet the especially high standards of quality, functionality, and expandability. Most professional users expect a good display, an adequate performance, and solid mobility. Our detailed review will show whether the current Dell Latitude E6530 is up to the task at hand.
