Dell's 13.3-inch Latitude 7390 business laptop is compact and lightweight, with fine fit and finish, but its steep price magnifies its minor flaws.

Dell's Latitude 7390 2-in-1 is an impressive 13.3-inch laptop. A high-quality, minimal-bezel screen with neat 360-degree rotation and impressive battery life all stand in its favour. There are plenty of configurable options for the security conscious, while mobile broadband is available as an option. It's nice to see MicroSD card support here, along with two USB 3 and two USB-C ports.

The Dell Latitude 7390 is designed to provide knowledge workers with a high-quality mobile computing experience, starting with an 8th-generation Intel processor. Dell also emphasizes mobile security, with options of a fingerprint reader, both contact and contactless smart card readers as well as Intel vPro and Windows Hello. In terms of design, it is visually slightly more interesting than its sibling, the 7390 2-in-1, because of its carbon fiber, soft-touch lid. The case, which is almost completely matte black and wedge-shaped tapering towards the front, appears almost generic in its elegant simplicity. It adds a bit of texture to what is otherwise a black square with a silver Dell logo. Lifting the lid reveals a 13.3-inch, 1080p display with a thin bezel, while the plasticky deck features an island-style keyboard and a fingerprint reader. At 2.9 pounds and a thickness of 0.7 inches, it is both heavier and thicker than several of its competitors. For instance, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon (6th gen) weighs 2.5 pounds and is 0.6 inches thick. Dell does designs these devices to survive minor drops, vibration, humidity, and dust, but if users are concerned about staying up and running, they can get its ProSupport Plus service for an additional cost that covers accidental damage in addition to other support services.
The 13.3-inch 1080p touchscreen on the Latitude is vivid, though some others are brighter. The Latitude covers 132 percent of the sRGB color gamut, easily surpassing the 108 percent premium-laptop average as well as the EliteBook (109 percent), the X1 Carbon (129 percent) and the XPS 13 (118 percent). The 92% brightness distribution is good and will be reflected in black images that appear homogeneous and saturated overall. Dell has switched to a matte touchscreen, which, unlike glossy displays, does not reflect environmental lighting. With an Intel Core i7-8650 CPU, a 256GB PCIe-NVMe SSD and 8 GB of RAM, the Latitude can handle multitasking with ease: It can easily handle 25 tabs in Google Chrome. The Intel Core i7 CPU includes support for vPro for remote management of the device by IT professionals. Dell uses a Hynix M.2 SSD with a 256GB capacity which is connected via SATA III. For graphics, it has an Intel UHD Graphics 620. The GPU is not suitable for current and/or graphically more demanding 3D games. The built-in, 720p webcam is good enough for conference calls, even though its pictures are a bit off. The laptop has a standard selection of ports for a business notebook. On the left side are a Thunderbolt-3 port, an HDMI output, a USB-3.0 port and a Smart Card reader. There is also a barrel-shaped power connector.

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.
