The Dell Latitude D630 is the evolution of the Latitude D620 (D620 Review). The D630 will be a 14.1" widescreen business notebook equipped with the Intel Santa Rosa platform. The processor and chipset upgrade will of course be good news to business consumers, but probably equally good news is the fact that Dell is going to include a brighter display than the proceeding D620, which many people griped about. The standard brightness will be about 220-nits instead of the 180 or so that the D620 came with. The full set of updates that the D630 carries over the D620 are as follows:

  • Latest Intel Core 2 Duo processor offering, featuring Santa Rosa platform with 800MHz speed FSB, Intel Turbo memory, faster processor offerings
  • Faster 802.11n wireless
  • 1394-port (FireWire) added
  • Choice of Windows XP SP2, Windows Vista or FreeDOS as the OS
  • Brighter display, at least 220 nits standard. An improvement over the D620 which was sub-200 nits.
  • Advanced hard drive options: Encrypted hard drive, Solid State Drive offerings, Intel Turbo Memory (1GB), Hybrid drives (SSD drives and Hybrid drives will not be offered initially but are planned for later on)
  • Two graphics choices: Intel X3100 integrated graphics or NVIDIA Quadro NVS 135M graphics

Outside of these additions to the D620 the D630 remains the same design wise. Which is just fine, the D620 was an attractive notebook and no need to overhaul the design yet. The D630 will come in with a weight of 4.48lbs.
