The Business Touch. The well-received 12.5-inch Latitude gets a touchscreen update and an even brighter display. We take the U.S. model for a quick benchmarking round in this updated review.

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 company’s XPS 12, but the Latitude 12 7000 is a robust, functional and highly manageable 12.5-inch Ultrabook that is a snap to deploy, monitor, secure and update.

The price of the Latitude reflects its corporate/business focus, and part of its cost can be attributed to its three-year warranty with on-site service (after remote diagnosis). Four- and five-year plans are available at extra cost, as are accidental damage coverage, extended battery service, and data recovery insurance. If you’ve read my reviews in the past, you’ll know I’m a desktop replacement kind of guy. But if I wanted a new 12-inch to trek about to IT gigs, the Latitude E7240 would be on my short list.

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 much less expensive, and the VAIO Pro 13 has a 1,920 by 1,080 screen that is as bright and useful as the one on the Latitude E7240 Touch. Essentially, if you need the higher resolution touch screen, the ruggedization, and if you are a Dell shop, then the Latitude E7240 Touch is a good laptop for your Windows 8 vanguard team.

Tablets like the Venue 8 Pro$299.99 at Dell Small Business and convertible devices like the XPS 12$899.99 at Dell are an important focus for Dell these days. 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.

Comment

Model:

The Dell Latitude E7240 Touch is a powerhouse made for business. The laptop has a carbon fiber lid to give it a nice sleek and professional look. The 12.5 inch HD display has a resolution of 1920 by 1080 pixels and great colors, which makes watching HD videos on this machine a delight. As for the hardware portion, the Latitude E7240 comes with a fourth generation 1.9 GHz Intel Core i5-4300U processor, 4 GB of RAM and a 128 GB SSD putting it more on the performance category.

Sadly, due to the high under the hood specifications as well as the beautiful display, the battery life of the Latitude E7240 is considered to be rather low. On the bright side, despite being thin, the laptop does not fall short on available ports such as a mini display port, 3 USB 3.0 ports, headphone/microphone jack, SD card reader, HDMI and Ethernet. As far as connectivity goes, the Latitude E7240 does not come with Bluetooth but has a Wi-Fi 802.11 a/g/n/ac module.

In short, the Dell Latitude E7240 Touch is a great laptop to have which is not too expensive as well. However, it does come with some minor drawbacks like the battery life as well as the lack of Bluetooth. Hence, users must take these factors into consideration before making the purchase.
