Dell Latitude 7410 Chromebook Enterprise 2-in-1: With great power comes a high price tag
The Dell Latitude 7410 Chromebook Enterprise 2-in-1 is one of the best convertible Chromebooks we have ever tested. In fact, the 2-in-1 is one of the best Chromebooks we’ve tested, but that excellence comes at quite a high price.
The Latitude is well-built and offers an excellent typing experience, phenomenal performance (for Chrome OS), and a long-lasting battery (roughly 13-15 hours of real-world use). Its screen is color-rich and color-accurate, and it is one of the few Chromebooks on the market with an NVMe SSD (which is replaceable).
However, the Latitude 7410 Chromebook Enterprise 2-in-1 is extremely expensive for a laptop in its class. Considering the device runs Chrome OS, its asking price is almost laughably high. Starting at over US $1500 ($1706 as reviewed), it is perhaps the most expensive Chromebook we’ve seen.
Chrome OS has come a long way and should be able to meet the needs of 90-95% of consumer and professional users out there. However, it’s hardware is still limited, even with the additional integration of Linux and Android.
Speaking of Android, we noticed that Android apps are a fair bit buggier on the Chromebook than a standard Android phone. This is especially evident with GPU-dependent tasks. These bugs are probably due to poor driver support for the Intel UHD Graphics 620 in Android, but it may be a sticking point for some.
All said, the Latitude 7410 Chromebook Enterprise 2-in-1 is the pinnacle of convertible Chromebooks, but the price is a tough pill to swallow and will likely keep it off the desks of many employees out there.
