Reviews for the Dell Latitude 7300-P99G
Intel's Whiskey Lake CPUs found their way into Dell's Latitude series. The redesigned Latitude 7300 features one as well, and it surprised us with its decent upgradeability (RAM) and long battery life. Unfortunately, not all that glitters is gold, and the laptop's CPU performance was the fly in the ointment.

The laptop's 13.3-inch, 1080p display is plenty bright and vivid, performance is top-notch and 10 hours of battery life is all you can ask for in a business notebook. You also get a bunch of security features (though many are optional), a decent range of ports and a sturdy aluminum chassis.

Series: The Dell Latitude 7300 knocks things straight out of the park by ticking a lot of the boxes from a list of essential specifications most commonly sought in a superb working laptop model. The Dell Latitude 7300 currently holds the record for being the world’s smallest premium business-class notebook with just capping at an approximated maximum of 13 inch in size and length. The Dell Latitude 7300’s clean and immaculate appearance is definitely something to vie for, not to mention that it also houses a few tricks up its ports and sleeves for hasty users to secure the fastest Internet connection within their immediate proximity.
First of all, as mentioned before, the Dell Latitude 7300 is only measured up to an approximated 13 inch in total, it also welcomes you to a smarter design, which can be traced with the tip of a finger. For instance, the improved screen of the Dell Latitude 7300 consists of a four-sided narrow border panel with an anti-glare matte finish. The four-sided narrow border not only magnifies the screen-to-body ratio percentage of the Dell Latitude 7300 for better immersion, but the anti-glare matte screen can effectively prevent reflection of light sourced from the backlight of a bright environment. This makes the Dell Latitude 7300 convenient to be operated at wherever and whenever users desire should they intend to bring work from home or to a quick getaway at the nearest beach.
The Dell Latitude 7300 comes equipped with the state-of-the-art 8th generation Intel Core i7-8665U processor. The Intel Core i7-8665U is a power efficient quad-core unit, which can be commonly found in the latest releases of high-end notebooks or ultrabooks in the scene. This processor unit offers a higher clock speed up to 4,800 MHz upon the activation of Turbo mode thanks to its production using the 14 nm process.
The physical design of the laptop itself can be chosen from two available alternatives between a chassis with new aluminum finish or formed from durable carbon fiber weave depending on the one’s taste. The new aluminum finish exudes a strong and illustrious business executive vibe, which is perfect to be brought into a workplace or wherever just to highlight on one’s career and identity. The carbon fiber weave finish creates a more aesthetically-pleasing look, which adds a certain kind of extra flavor to the overall presentation of the Dell Latitude 7300. All in all, the design of both physical variations are impressively done with hardly any visible flaw to point out.

Intel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620.
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
i7-8665U: Whiskey Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Kaby Lake but produced in a further improved 14nm++ process). The four cores are clocked between 1.9 and 4.8 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this 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.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
Dell: Dell Inc. is a multinational technology corporation that develops, manufactures, sells, and supports personal computers and other computer-related products. Based in Texas, Dell employs more than 82,700 people worldwide (2009). In 2006, Dell purchased the computer hardware manufacturer Alienware. In most countries, the laptops are directly sold to consumers by Dell and each notebook custom-assembled according to a selection of options. In 2014, the global market share of Dell laptops was 12.3% and it is 14% in 2016.
82.27%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
