Released in 2007 and based on the Microsoft Windows Vista operating system, the Dell Latitude D630 and Dell Latitude D630c are two versions of a business-oriented 14.1-inch laptop PC from computer technology company Dell. Although the D630 and D630c share most of their features or specifications, there are a few differences between the two portable computers.

Processor, Chipset and Memory

Dell offered four processor choices for the Dell Latitude D630/D630c, all of which are from semiconductor manufacturer Intel's Core 2 Duo brand: the 2-GHz T7250, 2.2-GHz T7500, 2.4-GHz T7700 and 2.66-GHz T7800. The D630 has an Intel 965GM or 965PM chipset, while the Intel 965PM of the D630c is accompanied by Intel Active Management Technology version 2.6 for out-of-band communication. The maximum system memory capacity is 4GB, using 667-MHz second-generation Double Data Rate Synchronous Dynamic RAM.

Disk Drives and Graphics

The Dell Latitude D630/D630c offered five hard drive storage space choices: 32GB, 60GB, 80GB, 120GB and 160GB. Optical drive choices also widely differed, from CD-ROM drive to CD/DVD burner. While Dell gave the D630 a motherboard-integrated Mobile Intel Graphics Media Accelerator X3100 processor, with the option of the more powerful Nvidia Quadro NVS 135M graphics card, the latter was made standard on the D630c.


Each Dell Latitude D630/D630c has a 56Kbps modem with International Telecommunications Union V.92 protocol compliance, as well as a 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet network interface adaptor. For wireless connectivity, all laptops have the Dell Wireless 360 Bluetooth internal wireless card. Additionally, Dell installs on the D630c the Intel PRO/Wireless 4965AGN wireless network adaptor with International Electrical and Electronics Engineers' 802.11a/g/ draft n compliance. By contrast, the D630 had five choices: Dell Wireless 1390 with 802.11g, Dell Wireless 1490 with 802.11a/g, Dell Wireless 1505 with 802.11a/g/draft n, Intel PRO/Wireless 3945AG with 802.11a/g and Intel PRO/Wireless 4965AGN with 802.11a/g/draft n.

Physical Characteristics, Power

Each Dell Latitude D630/D630c has a width of 13.3 inches, depth of 9.37 inches and height of 1.27 inches. Dell lists the starting weight of the D630 at 2.03kg. with a four-cell 32-watt-hour lithium-ion battery and Travel Lite module; that of the D630c is 23.1kg. with a six-cell 48/56-watt-hour battery and optical drive. A 65W or 90W AC power adaptor accompanied the four, six or nine-cell 85-watt-hour battery to provide the laptop's power.
