Or can my Dell Inspiron 6500 power adapter be used on E6230 (which I have
not taken delivery yet).

Is E6230's power adapter bulkier & heavier than Lenovo X220's ?

>No, most power adapters are proprietary and cannot be used across brands.

What if it's Dell Inspiron's power adapter?  Can it be used on E6230
