Dell Latitude D510 Reviews

Cnet Reviews has a review called Dell Latitude D510 Notebook Computer for Business and writes :

Rather than the flashy sprinter that’s first to cross the finish line, the mainstream Dell Latitude D510 is the decathlete of business notebooks, flying under the radar as it does a little bit of everything. With a mix of old and new technology, the Latitude D510 delivers reliable performance and four hours of battery life for businesses of all sizes–but it lacks the digital creature comforts and the security hardware of its peers.

The appreciated features: Solid battery life and performance; strong case; three-year warranty.

The Latitude D510 receives 6.4 points (“Good” rating) on this laptop review:
“The mainstream Dell Latitude D510 doesn’t excel in any one area but manages to be a good all-around business notebook.”

Also, PC Magazine features a Dell Latitude D510 review and states:

If you’re a manager or a working professional on a limited budget, you might want to consider the Dell Latitude D510. It doesn’t have the bells and whistles found on pricier systems, but it offers a good blend of performance and features to get you through the workday. That said, if you don’t need to populate your office with Latitudes, other business machines can give you more for less.

The Latitude D510 laptop from Dell receives 3 points (out of 5) from the reviewer:
“The Dell Latitude D510 blends basic performance and features, though other systems can give you more for less.”

From the Dell Latitude D510 news release:

Priced starting at $929, the Latitude D510 extends the computing resources of small- and medium-sized businesses by providing mobility with reliability, flexibility and performance.

“The U.S. economy is being driven by innovative small business owners who are quick to adopt value-add technologies that can help them expand their geographic reach, stretch resources and increase productivity,” said Frank Muehleman, vice president of Dell’s Small and Medium Business Division. “Dell is committed to delivering cost-effective products that transform a desk-bound workforce into a flexible, mobile workforce.”

With a starting weight of 5.2 pounds(a), the Latitude D510 can be configured with an Intel Pentium(R) M processor or a Celeron(R) M processor. Customers can also configure systems with 14.1-inch or 15-inch XGA displays and a choice of wireless networking solutions.

Customer feedback and Dell’s quality and reliability testing help ensure the Latitude D510 will stand up to most operating conditions. Dell’s Tri-Metal(TM) chassis helps ensure the D510 can withstand the rigors of mobility. The sealed, stiffened keyboard defends against dust and spills while the Strike Zone(TM) shock absorber helps protect the hard drive.

Dell’s unrelenting focus on providing excellent notebook support and strengthening customer relationships contributes to Dell’s No. 1 ranking in Technology Business Research’s quarterly IT Buying and Customer Satisfaction Study for notebook PCs. Dell has maintained this leadership position for almost seven years(b).
