Thanks. I am considering latitudes E6430 6430s E6330.

Thanks, good to know. This means that if I choose a laptop with NVS
5200M, I will have video. I would prefer nouveau (emacs bug with
nvidia). I would still prefer the intel 4000 soln as I can get a
smaller machine. But I worry that the intel might not drive my hi-res
external monitor with its 2560x1600 resolution

I may need it. Thanks again.

I see. (Actually I think the 6430s is no nvidia, but you point is well
understood).

I am hopeful of getting intel 4000 graphics.
I am still trying to confirm with dell that my configuration will "work"

Specifically, I plug my current E6510 and will plug the new machine
into an e-port-replicator. Attached to that replicator (via the
replicator's displayPort) is a dell 3011 display (2560X1600 res, 30")

thanks for the advice,
allan

Is there a local retail outlet, LUG or other means for you to get your
hands on one before making a purchase? Does Dell offer any means of
try-before-you-buy?

I buy directly from dell (NYU has a "deal"). I indeed will soon ask
them for a trial with the intel 4000. I am hoping to first get a
positive response that it will/should work.

Thanks,
