Theje reviews a second laptop in the super-cheap-and-rather-old-but-still-very-capable segment. Even though this laptop is a few years old, will it still do you good for all of your general PC needs? Let’s find out!
The song during the speaker test is Theje’s own cover of Eddie Murphy’s “Party All The Time,” which can be listened to here:

i have the same laptop but my specs are 8gb ram ddr4,intel hd graphics card which is really not bad, i7 5600cpu,1tb hard disk
I pocked one up for $50 and some change… I bought it as "non-working" and with very little love, I got it going. Coming from a Latitude 7400 at work it's not nearly as fast of course but I love that it has a docking connector. This thing will dock to my Dell 1080p ultrasharp no problem and since that monitor has multiple inputs I can switch from my TB16 and my Latitude e6230 with a single button and have multiple tasks running on multiple laptops at the same time. I don't game much, but I do have an XPS 8930 special edition with a 1060 if I want to. It's more lighter and compact then many laptops I've owned, and if I need dvd rom access I have the old eSata Dell branded DVD burner I can use. In closing must say over all I am impressed with this little guy. Especially considering the price.
do you think i can play rust on this badboy
Is it good enough to be used as notebook for engineering work in 2020?
How much RAM can be upgraded?
is it good for using OBS studio for live streaming
Can it run minecraft
Thank you ! Best review ever 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
Pros: pretty reliable, durable if you take care of it, bang for buck, Wi-Fi is strong, speakers underrated. Design is nice too.
Cons: gaming nonexistent, display not HD, battery life is a tiny bit below "decent," and keyboard is not backlit
It's actually an awesome PC for its price range imo. Got mine 3 years ago and it has lasted me through high school without much wear. Mostly use it for web surfing, Microsoft Office, Netflix, and streaming sports. Solid for all. Photoshop wasn't bad either but I don't use it regularly enough to comment. It's quite obviously not a gaming PC and you can only play simple games with low FPS (I played older games like Assassin's Creed II and it was only good for those).
Sadly, i'm a fan of thinkpad, yet this laptop is easier to clear the fan's dust. Sigh!
$140 for a i7 model with 4gb ram and 1tb hdd windows 10 pro
Good deal? I’m thinking about pullin the trigger on it
Got one for $29
Latitude E6230 or E6330 which one is better ?
I am looking at this with this: "Dell E6330 / i5-3380M / 4GB
Ram / 500GB HDD / DVD-RW / 13"
That is what it says online, do you know if you can play the sims 4 on this? or dying light?
Theje, You made a good review here. But I couldn't give you a thumb up because the Dell PC I got is a piece of junk. It died after only 5 months and the store who sold it wouldn't even let me talk to a Tech person. I doubt they have one. USA Computer Stores in S. Florida is a store I'd never deal with again. Sorry that I took my anger out on you. The review is good but what am I the only person who got a lemon PC. The PC I'm on right now is 10 yrs old and I never had a real problem.
The 1 I got only has 230 GB HDD and after 5 months this thing crapped out on me. I'm trying to figure out what's wrong. Did the HDD die, or something else. Mine came with a DVD player/burner. The HDD made an odd whirling sound when it was working. No more. I think this thing is a piece of junk. I think it has a HGST HDD why did it quit after only 5 months?
its has a hd 4000 not a hd 3000

Got one for college, $160 mint condition with free shipping. Can't beat that.
Very good laptop for students.
hi I've just purchased one of these for my daughter off ebay . will it run games like mine craft and skyrim ?
Huh. I bought mine in the same span of time (April of this year) for $215 but it had an i5-3440m, 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD. I win! 😛
EDIT: I feel the opposite about the keyboard. It is one of the most comfortable and satisfying laptop keyboards I've ever used.
I had Dell Latitude E6400, E6410, E6420, E6330 and i am currently using a Dell E6430 With i5 3320m vpro, 8 Gigs of DDR3 RAM, 1600×900 display and HDD+SSD Config. This little beast in the review is a musthave. In my country (Bulgaria). You will spend around 300 USD for a new 12" Acer or some other plastic, cheap unreliable laptop. Laptops like this E6230 are really the perfect road companion. They are light and in the same time rugged. Steel chasis, hinges and other. Magnesium and aluminium parts are used too. Nowdays, SSDs are so cheap that u can use one as a main drive. 256 gigs should be enough for a backup laptop. The design is very clean and i love it. Even the low res 1366×768 will look good on 12" display. The 3G option is also a plus for a mobile users.
I was bye this one refurbished 300$. Great laptop. Latitude E6230, Core i7-3520 2.9Ghz up to 3.6Ghz, Intel HD4000 128Bit, 8Gb DDR3, SSD 240Gb. Win7Pro, wery big batery, fingerprint reader. Best choise. Support windows 10 after flashing lastest version of bios. Films, internet, photoshop, autocad, converting, gaming.
Why did mine cost $490?
I got newer model 128 gb ssd 8gb ram hd 4000
for play at SKILL2 is good?what FPS play at skill…sorry but i am not english
Thank you for the review. These are extremely good value for money. I purchased one of these recently with 16Gb of RAM for the equivalent of around $300. I love the size . I travel regularly and this is my perfect companion as it is larger and less awkward to use than a netbook and I don't want to splash out on a Surface. The model that I bought does not have a fingerprint reader – not that I use this in any case!
can i play open world games like prototype?
You can buy a back-lit keyboard for the e6230 in the sub-$35 range (I think I got mine off eBay – hmm, maybe rakuten.com??? – for $28 delivered). The one I received had the Dell TrackPoint device (which was a pleasant surprise). Replacing the keyboard was about a 20 minute job (but I've had experience with this sort of thing, so YMMV), and there were no surprises or gotchas: it was a straight forward replacement. If you're worried about the trackpad, you can replace it as part of the mod.
W10 (I upgraded) had no problems at all.
…yeah, I'm fond of the e6230 too lol. (I paid well under $200 for a "sub-optimal", cosmetically challenged refurb). Especially considering it finally replaced a 2005 Acer ultraportable (I tend to keep stuff well past the use-by date). Great deal!
do you. really. talk like. that?
Wait, wasn't that a fingerprint reader? Why not talk about that?
