14 Reasons For

DELL Has Good Reviews for Its Notebook PCs

We checked 4,345 expert and user reviews for DELL notebook PCs and found that on average DELL has good reviews. However we also found that DELL has unexceptional reviews specifically within its ultrabooks range.

Three USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports

The Latitude 12 E7240 is a three USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port notebook PC. Most of the other portable PCs of a similar spec and age to the Latitude 12 E7240 have between one and three USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.

This portable PC supports a 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed, whereas most ultrabooks that came out around the same time as it support a 133MHz processor memory clock speed. This DELL laptop also supports 1 and 333MHz processor memory clock speeds.

Ultrabooks that were launched around the same time as the Latitude 12 E7240 have internal memory of between 4GB and 16GB.

SSD Storage Medium

This portable PC has an SSD storage medium, which is typical of many notebook PCs of a comparable spec and age to it. 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 notebook PCs that have an SSD storage media to this laptop and we think the X1 Carbon (£911.53), and the X1 Carbon (£911.53) both from Lenovo which has better reviews; or the X1 Carbon Touch, and the X1 Carbon Touch both from Lenovo or the Toshiba Z30 which is cheaper are also worth considering.

If the storage medium of this portable PC is too bad for you then you might also want to consider the Toshiba Z30 (SSD).
