Performance Upgrade: We recommend Solid State Drives
It’s time to upgrade to an SSD if you’re still using a mechanical hard drive in your computer. An SSD is the single biggest upgrade you can give your computer, and prices have come down dramatically. Solid-state drives are so much faster because they don’t have a spinning magnetic platter and moving head. After upgrading, you’ll be amazed at the performance improvements and wondering why you waited so long.
2016 Best Sellers: Dell, HP
The extensive lineup of Latitude notebooks is a popular selection for businesses due to their expandability, reliability, connectivity, and overall quality. The merits do come at a cost, most notably their relatively large footprint, thicker build and heavier body. The Latitude 6430u is Dell’s attempt to offer an Ultrabook-size Latitude without cutting off too many features that define the series. As a result, this 14-inch notebook is still equipped with Intel vPro features and a magnesium alloy case that the manufacturer claims makes this the only Ultrabook thus far in the market to pass 16 different MIL-STD-810G stress tests.
The Dell Latitude 6430u features an Ivy Bridge 1.8 GHz Core i5-3427U, 4 GB DDR3 RAM, integrated HD 4000 graphics, a 1366x768 resolution display, backlit keyboard, a 128 GB Samsung 830 mSATA SSD, and 8 hours of battery life for a configured retail price of $1229, and only $449 for a refurbished unit here at Ottawa Laptop. This model received an overall 5 star rating from our customers. Limited quantities are available, see in store for availability.
The HP ProBook lineup attracts buyers with its low heating, low system noise, good input devices, and long battery runtimes. It features matt finish display that works best in all light conditions. In addition, HP offers outstanding customer support worldwide. Over the years HP has made significant improvements on the design and is currently featuring single latch release mechanism that allows for instant access to all internal components. Cleaning or making upgrades to your laptop is now simple and there is no labor cost involved.
Similar to other business notebooks, the ProBook benefits from ruggedized testing and security measures, which means it survived durability testing similar to what military equipment must pass. Those feats include survival through drops, dust, vibrations and shocks. Additionally, the ProBook includes a spill-resistant keyboard.
Here at Ottawa Laptop we sell over 1000 units of refurbished ProBooks each year with low returns and great customer satisfaction.
