Dell Latitude D810

Dell Latitude D810

Editor's note: We have changed the ratings in this review to reflect recent changes in our rating scale. Find out more here.

One of three Dell business laptops recently refreshed inside and out, the Latitude D810 is a desktop replacement for employees who don't require a highly portable system. It comes equipped with Intel's new Sonoma platform, a high-end graphics card, and a few design enhancements, including a reinforced frame.

The Latitude D810's design tweaks are subtle, and the system doesn't look much different from the old Latitude D800. At 1.7 inches thick, 14.2 inches wide, and 10.3 inches deep, the Latitude D810 is slightly wider and shallower than the D800. Dell trimmed the system's weight: the Latitude D810 weighs 7 pounds (or 8.2 pounds with the three-pronged AC adapter)--a bit lighter than the typical desktop replacement, though you'll still want to think twice before slinging it over your shoulder for a long haul. The case is still constructed of stately silver magnesium alloy, appropriate for corporate environments.

Similar to the new thin-and-light Latitude D610, the Latitude D810 has a reinforced keyboard, lid, and internal frame that are noticeably firmer (read: less likely to break) than those of the previous model. Both the Latitude D610 and the D810 feature an identical pointing stick (with small, dedicated mouse buttons) that sits in the middle of the keyboard and a large, rectangular touch pad that has its own mouse buttons. The Latitude D810's keyboard is big and has an intuitive layout; the touch pad is far away enough from the keyboard so that your right pinkie won't accidentally hit the up-arrow key while typing. The Latitude D810 has handy LEDs that light up when Wi-Fi or Bluetooth is activated. This notebook is not intended for intense multimedia use, and it doesn't offer external CD-play buttons, though there are external volume and mute buttons.
