Latitude 13 7390 checks all the boxes of a premium business laptop. Its look on the outside kind of resembles the MacBook of yesteryears, however, this shouldn’t hinder its reputation in the Windows laptop world. Even just stating the three build material options (aluminum, carbon fiber, and magnesium alloy) launches the versatility of this device sky high.

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.

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.

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.
