Reviews for the Dell Latitude 9440 2-in-1
The Latitude 9440 2-in-1 represents the biggest and perhaps riskiest change in the Latitude 9000 series to date. Some of the design choices are definitely nice to see from a visual perspective, but others can feel like a step backwards.

Dell is not exactly an obscure name when it comes to business devices. The firm has long been associated with professional desktops and laptops, and to this day most would see a Dell laptop as a decidedly corporate offering. The Latitude line is specifically aimed at enterprises, so one would expect to find within it the very best Dell has to offer; thankfully, these expectations are not misplaced.

We find plenty to like about the Dell Latitude 9440 2-in-1 in laptop mode. The display is first-rate, delivering excellent color and brightness, and the keyboard is a huge win as well, with a frameless design and an enormous touchpad with one-touch Zoom controls. Its battery life is also near the top of our charts. But in tablet mode, the 9440 shows its faults, with a hard-edged palm rest and a bit of extra heft. Dell's simplified port selection is fine if you already have a collection of adapters or a docking station, but maddening if you just want to plug in an HDMI monitor. And except for battery life, the convertible fails to show a major performance boost from Intel's 13th Gen hardware versus the equivalent 12th Gen Core i7 chip we tested in the Latitude 9430 last year. That's not enough to keep the Latitude from an excellent score, but it does keep it from Editors' Choice honors.

Over the years, I've personally only coveted a few laptop models and brands, because I have very particular tastes when it comes to this type of device. My needs are basically productivity and web tasks, along with some light content creation when I'm on the road for business. I prefer the 14-inch notebook format, becuase for me it's a perfect balance of petite size with ample screen real estate. I also prefer 1600p resolution,16:10 format displays, so yes, Dell hit my sweet spot here. That said, Dell also built a well-balance, super premium machine with the Latitude 9440 and I like it so much, I'd easily consider this a "daily driver" candidate. At $2,789 as configured here (Starting $1,919), the Dell Latitude 9440 2-in-1 isn't cheap, but all told pricing is competitive with other high-performance, premium devices in this class.

There’s no denying that the Dell Latitude 9440 is a solid 2-in-1 laptop that offers powerful performance backed up by a gorgeous display, alongside a sturdy aluminum chassis and strong hinge that makes it feel like a truly premium product. But its $3,000+ price point is excessive when considering its bizarre keyboard design, awkward trackpad, less-than-great battery life and underwhelming SSD speeds.If you’re looking for a less costly business laptop with great performance and a solid display, we recommend the Asus ExpertBook B9450. But if you are more than willing to put down the money for it, the Dell Latitude 9440 2-in-1 will deliver in its excellent performance and hypnotizing screen.

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.
