Still, the Dell Latitude 12 7000 is one of those products that get nearly everything right. Its refreshed design has a classy upscale appearance, especially the woven carbon-fiber lid and silicone soft-touch surfaces. The backlit keyboard is first-rate and we enjoyed the spacious and smooth touch pad, though users coming from Lenovo ThinkPads or HP EliteBooks will miss their pointing sticks.

The Latitude 12 7000 Series (E7250) is the ultimate business-class Ultrabook for power users. Even though the understated design may look boring compared to the sheen of consumer notebooks, the Latitude's subtle curves make it appear stylish while staying functional. A long three-year warranty, upgradability, removable battery, comfortable keyboard and assortment of wired and wireless connectivity options make the Latitude an excellent productivity companion for mobile road warriors who need a thin-and-light laptop without compromise.

The Dell Latitude E7250 may not be as glamorous as the ThinkPad X1 Carbon or Toshiba Portege Z30T-A, but it is a solid, dependable machine all the same, with some unique offerings for businesses that may be interested in them.

The Dell Latitude E7250 is an Ultrabook that's ready to work: It's easy to carry, comfortable to type on and will last you all day on a charge. However, I'm turned off by the finicky touchpad and mediocre audio quality. Overall, the Latitude E7250 has some flaws, but it holds its own in the ultraportable category as an office workhorse.

If you are a business user who needs extra portability, the Dell Latitude 12 7000 Series (E7250) is a good choice. It is rugged, has a really nice screen, and good performance, including nine hours of battery life. We believe it could find a place in your business plans, whether you're a Fortune 500 company, or one that barely has 500 employees. Its 14-inch counterpart, the Dell Latitude 14 7000 Series (E7450), remains our Editors' Choice business ultrabook, as it has more battery life, is a little less expensive, and has more crowd-pleasing features like a larger screen and dual pointing devices.

12.50":

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

1.5 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.

78%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
