    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.
