Good: Build quality
Comment: Liam (below) doubts it'll run Win 7....well, I'm busy running Win 8.1 on one of these.
Buy one off ebay for £40, add a 1.8inch SSD ZIF drive (Runcore), Windows 8.1 and it flies. No need to spend £500+ on something new, this is all you need.
Good: light, easy to transport, perfect for surfing the web, runs super on xp.
Bad: well its a notebook, and I doubt it could run win7.
Comment: The Dell Latitude d420 is fast, reliable, stylish and super portable.
even now 6 or so years after its release it is still the notebook for the job. I can't find a real fault. and for the prices you can get these for these days its a real bargain.
it doesn't come with a disk drive (like most notebook/netbooks) but it has the option of external ones, it has 2 usb 2.0 ports (3 if you count the one that can be used for external disk drive) and also has an sd card port at the side which can come in handy.
all in all, I think its perfectly designed. I'll probably be using this for the next 5 or 6 years.
Comment: I had it since 2007 still work as normal, i just rebooted it few times. 5* laptop
Good: Size is excellent, screen is sharp and clear, very useable keyboard and Core Duo is a must have
Bad: Would prefer integrated optical drive
Comment: Excellent product at a reasonable price, Core Duo really adds to productivity, superb at connectivity - 3G connection works well, easy to change and setup with non-Vodafone networks (I used an existing O2 contract). Screen resolution is a real bonus and is sharp and clear - a useful download is Msoft Virtual Desktop Manager - lets you switch very easily between screens and allows full use of even a 12". Design is subtle, feels tough and sturdy - finish is also neat and professional - also very slim
