Dell has stopped directly selling the Latitude 9430, a 2-in-1 laptop that’s still a very capable workhorse for whoever wants a business laptop (or simply a laptop with a lot of bells and whistles) or the next best alternative to an XPS 13 convertible laptop.
It is now using Walmart this Black Friday to sell the laptop at a steep discount, $1234.74 instead of the sticker price of $2679.06 or a saving of just over $1,444. That’s a whopping 54% saving, which is a lot, especially for a flagship model.
At its launch back in April 2022, it was hailed as an ultra-premium laptop with the world’s smallest 14-inch 16:10 screen (which is touch capable). This particular model sports an Intel Core i7-1265U processor with 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD. Its display is a QHD+ model capable of showing 77% more pixels than traditional panels.
There’s Windows 11 Pro, four microphones, a 3D speakerphone, four speakers, an IR camera, an onlooker detection feature, Wi-Fi 6E, Express Connect (which allows you to be connected to more than one network at the same time) and a three-year hardware service with onsite service after remote diagnosis.
We haven’t reviewed the 9430 but we did review the 9330 which is a slightly different model. Collin Probst, our reviewer, wrote that “The Dell Latitude 9330 is lightweight, compact, powerful, and can transform to fit whatever style of work is needed in the moment. The bundled virtual meeting features make working remotely even easier, with added security features providing that extra level of safety.” The 9430 haas now been replaced by the 9440 which we have also reviewed.
