83% Review Dell Latitude E7240 Notebook | Notebookcheck
Ultra-Business. Dell has updated its Latitude series and added a number of new models. The Dell Latitude E7240 is a compact 12-inch business ultrabook, which wants to convince with professional equipment and premium features. We extensively tested how well it succeeds at this.
60% Dell Latitude E7240 review
Source: Expert Reviews English
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 Elitebook 840 G1.

82% Dell Latitude E7240 review: A nearly-great ultrabook
Source: Zdnet.com English
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 very good one.

The Dell Latitude E7240 may not provide the all-round class of consumer Ultrabooks – and it’s certainly nowhere near as desirable as its hybrid stablemate, the Dell XPS 12 – but it’s a solid addition to the Latitude family, with excellent connectivity and battery life, and the sort of build quality that should see it survive a long, tough life in the office.

70% Dell Latitude E7240 Touch

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. Unfortunately, this laptop's 4-cell battery doesn't last nearly as long as competing Ultrabooks -- and there's currently no extended battery option.

Dell Latitude E7240 Touch

Those with some extra money looking for a higher-end laptop, the Dell Latitude E7240 Touch is a contender. It is targeted more to those in a business responsible for spearheading new technology adoption, in this case to test out Windows 8 before deploying it. The 12.5 inch ultrabook is only 0.79 inches thick and weighs 3 lbs (1.36 kg).

The chassis is a combination of metal and carbon fiber with a MIL-SPEC construction, perfect for the on-the-go business person. In addition to this, its spillage, heat and dust resistant; definitely enough to handle most if not all the abuse you can dish out. The 10-point capacitive touchscreen has a 1920 by 1080 resolution and it's an IPS screen, ensuring great viewing angles and brightness.

Sporting an Intel i5 4th generation processor, 4 GB of RAM and a 128 GB SSD; running most of your applications will be a breeze. Even with this configuration, the battery can last up to 7+ hours of mixed use; a great length for its performance level.

The Dell Latitude E7240 Touch is a portable yet rugged ultrabook with fast performance, the price however is very premium but if money is not a problem for you, this device could be what you're looking for.

83% Review Update Dell Latitude E7240 Touch Notebook | Notebookcheck
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.

80% Dell Latitude E7240 Ultrabook review: Small, fast, and elegant
Source: PC World English
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.
