D series are 10 years or more old.   ancient in laptop terms.   I had a 
D600 for a long time (new in 2003).

The E6x00, '10, '20, and '30 are also fairly old (2008, 2010, 2011, and 
2012, respectively).

The current models branded like Latitude 15 5000, 14 7000, etc, are in 
fact Exx70 models, these are 6th gen core i3/i5/i7 based, aka Skylake, 
and its this newest generation of stuff thats got compatibility issues 
with CentOS.
