I would have liked to have had at least 1 USB 2. The SD card slot is much appreciated, and no complaints on number of slots, just placement.
But with an ultraportable designers have to make compromises on fitting things where they can. Screen The D comes standard with a While some may still prefer a standard-aspect display, widescreen offers better multimedia uses as well as reduced physical dimensions.

In terms of viewing angles they are generally Dell Latitude D420 System, although vertical angles are noticeably more finicky and sometimes subject to the dreaded color inversion problem.
Dell Latitude D420 System, light leakage is minimal, uniformity is generally acceptable, and brightness is more than satisfactory, although brighter screens are certainly available on the market. Interestingly Dell offers a built-in ambient light sensor, although this feature has not proven useful or even accurate in limited testing.

Security As would be expected of a business notebook, Dell offers several key security features for those that would need them. Although not included on my model, one such feature that stands out is the optional UPEK finger print Dell Latitude D420 System that can be incorporated between the two lower mouse buttons. In brief, Dell does not skimp on providing up-to-date security solutions for those users who require them.
