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 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 review: A nearly-great ultrabook

 

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

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

Businesses need to achieve business resilience in order to adapt and respond rapidly to threats and opportunities. Think of this IBM white paper as a proactive guide to strengthening your business resiliency management program.

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. It's a good choice if you have a team testing whether Windows 8 will work for your organization, but there are less...

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 a technology-forward system that will interest SMB and enterprise business IT managers evaluating Windows 8. It has ramped-up specs, including a 12.5-inch, 1,920-by-1,080 resolution touch screen, runs Windows 8, and...

Dell Latitude E7240

 

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

With the Latitude E7240 Touch, Dell has really spruced up its line of business notebooks. We love this laptop's sturdy design and attractive carbon fiber lid. We also appreciate the vivid 1920 x 1080 touch display, excellent keyboard and robust security.

Dell Latitude E7240 review

 

A stylish business Ultrabook, but its poor screen and cramped keyboard hold it back

The Dell Latitude E7240 is an attractive business ultraportable, but underneath its good looks is a fairly average laptop. At £947 (£789 ex VAT), it's also very expensive and not nearly as good value as the similarly priced Core i5 version of the HP...

Dell Latitude E7240

 

Dell recently announced a newly formed pair of Latitude 7000 Series Ultrabooks, and the Latitude E7240 is the first to land in the PC Pro Labs. Following in the business-friendly footsteps of its predecessors, Dell has packed the Latitude E7240's...

A compact business Ultrabook with oodles of power and connectivity – only the low-resolution display disappoints
