DELL E7240 review
Review Ultrabook dell latitude e7240

13 Reasons For

DELL Has Good Laptop Reviews

DELL has good average reviews across all notebook PCs, however it has unexceptional reviews specifically for its ultrabooks.

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

The DELL Latitude 12 E7240 is a three USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port notebook PC. Most of the other portable PCs that were launched more than two years ago have between one and three USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.

Chart Edit

Has a Front Camera

The Latitude 12 E7240 has a front camera, as do most of the other laptops of a comparable age and spec to the Latitude 12 E7240.

We compared this laptop to all the other laptops with a front camera and we think the Lenovo X1 Carbon[plb_2189879_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

We think you might also be interested in alternative notebook PCs which also have a front camera including the Latitude 12 E7240[pl_2037345_price], or the Latitude 12 E7240[pl_2073679_price] both from DELL.

1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed

A 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed is actually the best supported memory clock speeds supported by processor amongst all ultrabooks that were released more than two years ago.

Amongst similar types of laptop the worst supported memory clock speeds supported by processor is 133MHz.

SSD Storage Medium

This notebook PC has an SSD storage medium, which is the most frequently found storage medium on notebook PCs of a comparable age and spec 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.

Alternative laptops that have an SSD storage media currently available which you might want to look at include cheaper notebook PCs such as the XPS 13[pl_1474903_price], or the XPS 13[pl_1474903_price] both from DELL.

If the storage medium of this ultrabook is not good enough for you then you might want to consider the HP Pro[plb_1549460_price] (SSD), or the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon[plb_1611730_price] (SSD).
