Dell Latitude 7280


Business users will appreciate the Dell Latitude 7280's briefcase-space-saving size and impressive battery life, as well as the wealth of connectivity it offers in its small chassis.

Excellent battery life. Plenty of ports including HDMI, Ethernet, and Thunderbolt 3. Snappy keyboard.

Micro instead of standard SD card slot. Sound gets fuzzy when turned up.

With the fashionable trend toward thinner screen bezels, you can quibble about the prospects for 12.5- versus 13.3-inch ultraportables; anything that causes less squinting is a bonus in our book. For now, however, the 12.5-inch size remains a good bet...

Dell Latitude 7280


A great ultraportable business notebook needs several key components, including speed, security, durability and endurance. The 12-inch Dell Latitude 7280 (tested at $1,830; starting at $1,029) has all of the above, thanks to its 7th-generation Intel...

Speedy performance; Durable design; Long battery life with optional four-cell upgrade

Can get pricey; Scratchy audio; Underside heats up

Dell Latitude 12 7000 (7280) Review and Ratings


It's not exactly sleek, but the Latitude 7280 is a fast slab of an business ultraportable with a fine combination of durability, speed, and—especially—battery life.

Rugged, all-metal chassis ; Strong Core i7 performance, in test model ; Outstanding battery life ; Three-year warranty is standard

Pricey, as tested ; Battery is not user-replaceable ; Touch pad is tight

If you don’t require the thinnest, sleekest ultrabook and your enterprise will sign off on its steep price, the Dell Latitude 7280 has the goods to serve you well for a long time. Just mention "lifespan" and "ROI" to whomever in your office controls...
