Dell Latitude E7240 Ultrabook review: Small, fast, and elegant


You'd be hard-pressed to find a flaw in this nicely realized 12-inch, touchscreen Ultrabook.

Very good benchmark performance ; High-res multi-touch display ; Good input ergonomics

Heavy for its size ; Small SSD (128GB)

It's pricey, but Dell's Latitude E7240 is about as good as it gets in the realm of 12.5-inch Ultrabooks.

Dell Latitude E7240 Touch


The Dell Latitude E7240 Touch is a compact sub-3.5 pound business ultrabook with a 1080p touch screen and MIL-SPEC certification.

Compact ultrabook. Three USB 3.0 ports, HDMI, Ethernet, and mini-DisplayPort in a 12-inch ultrabook. Comfortable, old-scholl style keyboard. MIL-SPEC rating.

No pointing stick. A hint of keyboard flex. Premium pricing.

The Dell Latitude E7240 Touch is quite portable and innovative, but as usual innovation comes at a price. Even though the E7240 Touch has a 1080p screen and some ruggedization, both the Dell Latitude 6430u and Sony VAIO Pro 13 are better buys. Both are...

Dell Latitude E7240 Touch


The Dell Latitude E7240 Touch looks to usher in a new era of business notebooks that combine fast performance and strong security with sexy design. Starting at $1,175 ($1,665 as configured), the E724 sports a sleek carbon fiber lid, 12.5-inch full HD...

Dell Latitude E7240 Touch Review


The Dell Latitude E7240 Touch sports a vibrant full HD touch display, an excellent keyboard, swift performance and strong security in a sleek design, but its battery life falls short.

Attractive carbon fiber design; Bright and colorful 1920 x 1080 display; Comfortable keyboard; Solid everyday performance; Three-year warranty with onsite service

Below-average battery life; A little pricey

The Dell Latitude E7240 Touch sports a vibrant full HD touch display, an excellent keyboard, swift performance and strong security in a sleek design, but its battery life falls short.

Review Dell Latitude E7240 Notebook


Ultra-Business. Dell has updated its Latitude series and added a

system noise during low load; docking connector; interface layout; WWAN is optionally available; system performance; power consumption; weight; keyboard

system noise during full load; performance falls under full load; no Bluetooth, no fingerprint reader; very high price

just began to update their product range. Lenovo's ThinkPad X240 with IPS display could become a particularly strong competitor.

Dell Latitude E7240 review: A nearly-great ultrabook


The Latitude E7240 is solidly made and well connected, with impressive performance and a thoughtful design. It's let down by a poor keyboard and a lack of configuration options, transforming what could have been a superb business ultrabook into merely...

Solid and tough chassis design ; Very good performance ; Mobile broadband (HSPA+) ; Excellent sound quality

Heavy for an ultrabook ; Keyboard has too much flex for comfort ; Limited (all-SSD) storage capacity ; Short on customisation options

The Dell Latitude E7240 is a curate's egg of an ultrabook. It's solidly made and well connected, with impressive performance and excellent audio output. It also benefits from a cable-conscious attitude to the arrangement of ports and connectors.

Great 1080p touchscreen, Exterior looks good, feels solid, Three USB 3.0 ports, Three-year warranty

Pricey as configured, Rear-mounted ports and power plug can be inconvenient in tight spaces, No VGA port, Smallish touch pad

So if you want touch and a high-resolution display (which is great to have for multitasking, let alone any image or video editing ambitions), you'll certainly have to pay a premium. And while the ThinkPad may cost a bit less, it comes with just a...

Dell Latitude E7240 Touch Review and Ratings


Those looking for an attractive business ultrabook would do well to consider Dell's Latitude E7240 Touch. It's a bit expensive, but it gets all the business basics right, while adding a long warranty and some unique security features.

Great 1080p touchscreen ; Exterior looks good, feels solid ; Three USB 3.0 ports ; Three-year warranty

Pricey as configured ; Rear-mounted ports and power plug can be inconvenient in tight spaces ; No VGA port ; Smallish touch pad

The Latitude E7240 Touch's battery life is about what we'd expect from a "Haswell" system of this size and weight—which is to say, pretty impressive. Dell's 14-inch 6430u lasted a few minutes longer in our strenuous video rundown test, but it has a...

REVIEW: Dell Latitude 12 7000 Series (E7240)


Dell has been a long-time player in the enterprise market and its Latitude range of mobile computers are a key part of that strategy. The latest addition to the Latitude range doesn't have the eye-catching design of convertible devices such as the...

Rugged design ; Intel IPT, WiDi and NFC ; Optional WiGig docking ; Superior manageability ; Optional touch display

Not very attractive ; Touch heavy ; Disappointing battery life ; Too much flex in keyboard ; Low-res screen is poor

Most of the Latitude E7240’s ports are located at the back, including power, HDMI, two USB 3.0, and Gigabit Ethernet. Optional docking ports can add legacy ports, such as serial, parallel, and PS/2. There’s another USB 3.0 port, mini-DisplayPort and...
