    Default D620 or D630?

    1-Currently D620 is much cheaper than D630. Should I hurry if I want to buy a D620?
    2-Does D630 has a really better performance than D620?
    3-Can any body compare the two models in terms of battery life and weight?

    Thanks!

    I assume the D620 will be discontinued shortly. From what I've heard, the performance difference is not significant. However, the D630 is somewhat more future-proof:

    * Supports 4Gb RAM (D620 only 3.25Gb)
    * Supports the new line of processors
    * Has expresscard (I think?)

    If those things matter less, get the one with a better price, but don't expect the D620 to stay for long.

    The most important thing added to the D630 is a much brighter screen. Personally, I had a D620 and got rid of it because the LCD was terrible. Keep in mind that the D630 are not in production yet, so don't look for a ship date before early to mid-June.

    I ordered a D830 and the estimate ship date was June 11th. Couldn't wait that long so I canceled.

    Someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe all 14.1" screens on the D620 were upgraded to 220 nits brightness with the latest batch of LCDs.

    There's a good overview of the updates to the Latitudes here.

    As I see it, the main advantages of the D630 are:
    - better battery life
    - brighter screens (though maybe this has been added to D620 as well, I don't really know)
    - faster bus speeds
    - 802.11n wireless available
    - Optional Intel turbo memory (flash cache)
    - Better integrated graphics. (Not sure about dedicated graphics option.)

    If you need the extra power, wait for the new D630.

    If you're on a budget, and you don't do a lot of high powered processing or frequent software upgrades, the D620 will suffice.

    Well put titan. I'll add that its all about patience to. How long do you want to wait? The D630 isn't up yet. Also stay tuned. I would imagine we are not to far away from a review.
