“A safe bet”

published 24/11/2004

ProGood sturdy corporate workhorse

ConsCatch, foot & screws missing after one year of use

The Dell D series of laptops came out in 2003 to replace the C series laptops (how did they come up with such a catchy name?). The main ranges are the D400, D600 and D800 spot the pattern yet. The D600 is the middle of the range in terms of size, weight and features. This machine has been...

I'm currently in college, and the college offered us Dell Latitude D600's at discounted prices. I agree with their choice at picking this laptop, because it's a great all-purpose laptop for a wide variety of uses. Okay, first, hardware. This laptop is not the lightest out there, for those of you...

ConsFairly large and can get quite hot.

I bought this laptop almost a year ago and have not had a problem with it to date. The design of the laptop is aimed at robustness and portability... all the hardware has been installed with the 'travelling salesman' at mind. I purchased this item as necessary equipment for my university course...

ProHas a good Touch pad

Consonly one usb port

Okay, first, hardware. This laptop is not very light out there, for those of you wanting featherweight laptops, but I carry mine with me all the time in my book bag and I don't feel the weight to be an issue. The screen gives crisp, vibrant images that are easy on the eyes, without any annoying...

Conscan freeze

This dell laptop in my opinion is not very good. It has 256 random access memory and this is very poor. Also the processor which is 1.3GHz is below average causing this laptop to freeze when opening multiple objects and causing it to sometimes be very slow. I tried to run a game on this laptop...

My Dell latitude D600 has served me well. Its fast, reliable, smart, it has streamlined design and to be basic, it does what you want it to do. It has a medium sized hard drive of 50 GB, fast processor speed of the Intel Pentium M chip, DVD player and fantastic ATI Radeon 9000 display graphics. This laptop is much lighter than previous Latitude notebooks that i've owned like the D505. There are a few downsides though, first, the screen size is smaller than the D505 and the DVD player can't re-write CDs or copy them but they are the only things i've spotted wrong with it. Overall its ready to to get going when your ready.

reasonably good laptop. charging battery doesnt work after a while due to motherboard problem. this is common. otherwise an excellent machine. would recommend however be aware that after a while this may no longer be a portable machine as you will need to keep it in power supply.

“The Latitude with Attitude”

Proscreen, wireless capability, long battery life

Consgets very hot.. not a great fan of the nipple!

Having suffered an ageing Tecra 800, I was pleasantly impressed with the Dell Latitude D600. I love the screen which gives crisp images. I appreciate the Centrino Mobile technology which has enabled me to keep using the Wireless access point which I have set up at home in my conservatory. It has...

I take my Dell everywhere with me. They're light enough to carry around and take knocks well. I have not had problems with it crashing or being slow, a big improve on my last laptop. The screen is a nice size and is good enough for watching dvds on or editing pictures. It is really nice to use...
