Reviews for the Dell Latitude 14 9420 2-in-1, i5-1135G7
Source: Laptop Media
Usually, we are harsher on devices that come at a premium price. Especially when their manufacturers are promising so much, that it seems unreal. Unfortunately, the Latitude 14 9420 (2-in-1) isn’t perfect. Well, nobody expected it to be, but the major caveat in our view is the lack of memory upgrades. On the bright side, you get three possible configurations – one with 8, 16, and 32GB of RAM, all working at dual-channel mode. However, if you pick the lowest one, you have to keep in mind that first – the integrated GPU is going to eat up 1/8th of your memory, and two – you won’t be able to expand it in the future.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.
The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
