Dell Latitude E7240 Ultrabook Quick Review
Dell Latitude E7240 Review
DELL E7240 review
Review Ultrabook dell latitude e7240

11 Reasons For

Good Brand

We analysed average ratings for each notebook PC manufacturer and found that whilst DELL has good average reviews across all notebook PCs, DELL has unexceptional reviews specifically within its ultrabooks range.

Has a Front Camera

The DELL Latitude 12 E7240 has a front camera, as do most of the other notebook PCs that came out more than two years ago.

Other notebook PCs with a front camera currently available which you might want to look at include the Lenovo X1 Carbon (£697.00) which is cheaper.

It is worth considering alternative portable PCs which also have a front camera including the Latitude 12 E7240 (£1,098.00), or the Latitude 12 E7240 both from DELL.

Fairly Big Internal Memory

At 8 gigabytes, the Latitude 12 E7240 has a quite big internal memory compared to most of the other notebook PCs of this spec and age. The average internal memory of ultrabooks that came out around the same time as the Latitude 12 E7240 is 5.9GB, and the internal memory range from 4GB to 16GB.

We compared all the other 8GB internal memory portable PCs to this portable PC and we think the DELL XPS 13 which is cheaper is also worth considering.

SSD Storage Medium

This notebook PC has an SSD storage medium, which is typical of many similar spec laptops that were released more than two years ago. Solid State Drives (SSD) store data in semiconductors on a circuit board rather than using magnetic or optical media. Solid State Drives have no moving parts which makes them very fast and reliable.

We compared all the other laptops that have an SSD storage media to this laptop and we think the XPS 13, and the XPS 13 both from DELL which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If the storage medium of this ultrabook is too bad for you then you might want to look at the HP Pro (SSD), or the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon (SSD).

We compared all the other 1.4kg heavy laptops to this portable PC and we think the DELL XPS 13 which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If you would consider a portable PC with a heavier weight then you might want to look at the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon (1.4kg), or the DELL Latitude 12 E7240 (£1,098.00) (1.4kg).
