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 ?

Ivy Bridge: Wikipedia article about it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ivy_Bridge_%28microarchitecture%29

Dell E6230 has this chipset: Mobile Intel QM77 Express Chipset

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

Possibly, but may not...

I really don't know the answer to that but I do know they make universal adapters.

It would be based mainly on power output (Amps and Watts).
