Price when reviewed

Storage comes courtesy of a hugeÊ80GB hard disk, and there’s aÊCD-RW/DVD-ROM drive for backing up data. You can upgrade to a DVD writer for £95. The dual ‘StrikeZone’ shock absorber (rubber feet on the underside) helps to prevent any loss of data from the hard disk. The hardware is rounded off with a V.92 modem and gigabit Ethernet – this is one fully-loaded laptop.

Dell Latitude D610 review

In some ways, the D610 is more powerful than most users will need, but this means it will last longer before needing to be replaced. And from a business perspective, the D610 makes aÊgood case for itself. The warranty outstrips everything else on test – three years of on-site cover with next-business-day response. Plus, it covers accidental damage – a valuable addition for notebooks. Another plus is that Dell can offer the D610 in 34 languages.

With the bundled OpenManage and QuickSet software, and security in the form ofÊaÊsmart card reader, password protection andÊaÊKensington lock slot, Dell has every business base covered. When you add the factÊthat Dell can provide other services suchÊasÊbespoke disk images and network pre-configuration for £20 per unit, the D610 just manages to usurp the IBM ThinkPad T42 and claim its A-List status.
