Dell's Surface Pro 7 competitor ranges from quiet to silent

Dell Latitude 12 7210 2-in-1 in review: Comet Lake provides better battery life
Dell's 2-in-1 device hardly warms up, offers good battery life, and comes with a touchscreen display in the 3:2 format. The latter can be operated both with the fingers and with the separately available Dell Premium Active Pen.

The Dell Latitude 12 7210 is a 2-in-1 device for organizations. The business machine can be purchased for just under 2,000 Euros (~$2,386) and might, therefore, not be attractive to most consumers. The combination of a Core i7-10610U processor, 16 GB of RAM (dual-channel mode; on-board, not expandable), and a 512 GB NVMe SSD is on board. Positive: The device always runs quietly and hardly heats up.

The touchscreen display (1920x1280 pixels, IPS) in the 3:2 format offers stable viewing angles, good color reproduction, and very decent color-space coverage. The brightness and contrast meet their targets. In addition, the touchscreen can be controlled with the separately available Dell Premium Active Pen as well as with the fingertips.

Dell opts for a metal case in the Latitude 12 that can't shake off a certain resemblance to the Surface Pro 7's chassis. The included keyboard dock is magnetically connected to the tablet unit. It can lie flat on the surface or be angled towards the user. At 850 grams (tablet) or 1,177 grams (tablet + keyboard dock), the Latitude weighs a bit more than the Surface Pro 7 both with and without the keyboard dock.

One battery charge is sufficient for practical runtimes of 8 to 11 hours. Power is delivered via the included USB-C power adapter that can be plugged into both Thunderbolt 3 ports. This leaves one slot free for other devices (external display, docking station, external GPU).

More information and many benchmark results are available in our review of the Dell Latitude 12 7210.

I've been fascinated with technology ever since I got my very first Android smartphone, which was quite a while ago. The power packed into such a small footprint still amazes me. Learning to program made my understanding of technology deeper, and at the same time, it expanded my interest to the area of desktop computers and laptops. All this led me to enjoy reading and watching reviews of new devices, and that's how I stumbled upon Notebookcheck. I immediately found their reviews to be very comprehensive, and luckily, I've even had the chance of translating them since 2019. When it comes to the huge field of technology, I'm currently also interested in specializing in Java programming.
