Model: Dell’s Latitude line has been a familiar sight in the business market for over two decades. It is currently offered in three tiers, starting with the entry-level 3000 series, then the mid-level 5000 series, and finally the top-tier 7000 series. The Dell Latitude 14 7480-WY8VF is one of the models of the top-tier Latitude series. It is also the largest of the models in the 7000 series. The exterior of the Dell Latitude E7480 is all black and business-centric. Its straight edges and the no-nonsense look is right at home in a corporate office environment and almost anywhere else. The Latitude 7480 is just 1.7 cm (0.67 inch) thin, while the rest of the chassis measures 33.02 x 22.1 cm (13 × 8.7 inch). It is a cinch to carry at just 1.36 kg (3 lb).  As far as business-class notebooks go, the Latitude 7480 rounds the most important bases. It offers biometric features such as a fingerprint reader, an infrared camera, and physical and contactless Smart Card readers. Its carbon fiber and metal construction are strong, and its input devices are very good.  The touchpad is slightly offset to the left in the palm rest to align with the keyboard. This orientation keeps it right between wrists as a user is typing, minimizing the risk of the cursor jumping somewhere due to an inadvertent brush with their palm. The touchpad has a smooth surface that is just about perfect, both in terms of feel and size.

The Dell Latitude 14 7480-WY8VF is based around the new Intel 7th generation processors, codenamed Kaby Lake. It specifically uses Core i5 dual-core processors with a 15-watt thermal specification. This notebook has two DIMM slots for DDR4-2133 RAM. Both were populated by 4 GB modules, for a total of 8 GB of RAM running in dual-channel mode. The storage capability of the Latitude E7480 is somewhat underwhelming. It has just a single M.2 Type-2280 (80mm) slot for an SSD. The laptop features a 256 GB SSD out of the box. The Dell Latitude 14 7480-WY8VF FHD features a (1,920 × 1,080 pixels) anti-glare display. This display panel uses in-plane switching (IPS) technology for wide viewing angles, which allows the picture to appear consistent when not looking at the display head-on. The technology also allows for excellent image quality. A user will be impressed with the good black levels, high brightness, and very good color saturation. The port selection on the Latitude 7480 is more than respectable for a 14-inch notebook. The left side has the power jack, a USB Type-C port with Thunderbolt 3 support, full-size HDMI output, two USB Type-A 3.0, and a SmartCard reader. The right side has the remaining ports, including the audio combo jack, a MicroSD flash card reader, with the SIM card slot directly beneath it, the last USB Type-A 3.0 port, the Ethernet jack, and the cable lock slot. As with all other Latitudes, this model is also primarily designed for business users. The latitude series remains one of the most popular range in industrial and office usage.
