Hi, just about to get a Dell D430 for OSX :) whats the speed of it to use compaired with macbook's etc?

Guess its a "feel" sort of thing

 

Do i need to watch out for anything with the D430.... i.e. graphic card etc

 

thanks

Hi,

 

Depends alot on what you are planing to use it for ?

 

My advice(s)...

 

1. Get the 1,33ghz model

2. Give it a SSD drive (eg. Runcore)

3. Give it 2gb memory

 

I use my D430 every day.. its a fast nice little machine.. i would rather have a D430 than a macbook air.. better keyboard.. good performance etc.

all the info is in my signature.. lol.. yes everything works. the only thing that did not work was the Intel wifi, but that's replaceable if you can choose core 2 duo you will need it in the future (lion) and try get it with dell wireless instead of Intel
