I have had the D620 for 2 weeks now, and its a very nice machine. However, I still prefer my D610 for 3 main reasons:
1)Higher resolution screen (D620 is SXGA+, my D620 only came with a WXGA screen)
2)My D620 has integrated video, bleh! My D610 has an ATI x300 card, which I have found to run most games with absolutley no problems (runs Far Cry, Half Life 2 and Splinter Cell: CT very smoothly)
3)I don't get to keep the D620, so I don't want to get used to it (Dell is letting me keep the D610)
If I had the better video options on the 620, it would definetly be a great machine. I really like the widescreen(I have a 17" SGI widescreen on my desktop), and since I'm used to a widescreen, my 610 feels like it doesnt have a whole lot of desktop space, even though its a higher resolution.
As far as build quality, I think the D620 is superior to any Dell laptop I have used before(I haven't been able to get my hands on a D810 recently to compare). It's very solid - the case is mostly metal(which conducts heat better, perhaps this is why some people are complaining of it running hot?), and the screen's hinges have no play in them - they are very firm, I like it. Battery life out of the box was 6 hours(with WIFI and BT enabled) so its a significant improvement over my D610, but this could be due to the older battery I have(they are both 54Whr).
Only issue I had is the spot for the BT card is kind of awkward to install the card in. It's not nearly as straightforward as in the D610. My cable from the mobo to the card was also kinked or something so the card didn't work at first, I had to straighten it out. This is due to the sharp angle it takes right before the connector. Just something to watch out for.
If anyone is lookin to get a D620 or D820, I have $50 off coupons good until 5/31. I'm supposed to distribute them around campus, but I'll save 5 in case anyone on this site wants the discount. Just PM me and I'll send you a code, since they are individual codes, and only work once.
