8 Reasons For

DELL Has Good Reviews for Its Laptops

DELL has unexceptional reviews for its ultrabooks, however it has good average reviews when measured across its entire portable PC range.

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

The Latitude 14 E7240 is a three USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port laptop. Most of the other ultrabooks that have been around for a similar time to the Latitude 14 E7240 have between one and three USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.

Chart Edit

Has a Front Camera

The Latitude 14 E7240 has a front camera. Most of the other portable PCs of a comparable age and spec to the Latitude 14 E7240 also have a front camera.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other notebook PCs with a front camera currently available including cheaper portable PCs such as the HP Zbook 14 (£1,081.08).

Alternative laptops which also have a front camera that you might want to consider include the T440s, or the X1 Carbon (£854.20) both from Lenovo.

1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed

The Latitude 14 E7240 supports a 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed which is faster than most ultrabooks that are a similar age to it. Most ultrabooks that have been on the market for a comparable time to it support a 133MHz processor memory clock speed. In addition, this portable PC supports 1 and 333MHz processor memory clock speeds.

A 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed is actually the best supported memory clock speeds supported by processor across all ultrabooks that have been around for more than two years.

The worst supported memory clock speeds supported by processor amongst similar types of notebook PC is 133MHz.

SSD Storage Medium

This laptop has an SSD storage medium, which is the most commonly found storage medium on ultrabooks that are a comparable 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.

Other laptops that have an SSD storage media currently available that you might also want to consider include the X1 Carbon Touch, the X1 Carbon Touch, or the X240 (£1,299.89) all from Lenovo which is cheaper; or the X1 Carbon, or the X1 Carbon both from Lenovo which has better reviews.

Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency

When compared to other ultrabooks that have been around for a comparable time to the Latitude 14 E7240 that we have checked, the on-board graphics adapter base frequency of the DELL Latitude 14 E7240 of only 200 megahertz is one of the slowest. The on-board graphics adapter base frequencies of comparable spec portable PCs that were released more than two years ago range from 200MHz to 650MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter base frequency is 290MHz.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

The Latitude 14 E7240 has a fairly slow on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (only 1,000 megahertz) compared to most of the other laptops of a similar age and spec to the Latitude 14 E7240. Notebook PCs of this age and spec have on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of between 800MHz and 1,300MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 1,100MHz.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Full-Size Keyboard

The Latitude 14 E7240 does not have a full-size keyboard, although keep in mind that most of the other ultrabooks that have been around for a comparable time to the Latitude 14 E7240 also do not have a full-size keyboard.

Alternative portable PCs which also have a full-size keyboard that you might also want to look at include the DELL XPS 13 (£899.00) which is also cheaper.

Quite Small Maximum Internal Memory Supported by Processor

With a maximum internal memory supported by processor of only 16 gigabytes, the Latitude 14 E7240 has a fairly small maximum internal memory supported by processor compared to most of the other ultrabooks that came out around the same time as the Latitude 14 E7240. The maximum internal memory supported by processors of laptops that are a comparable age to the Latitude 14 E7240 range from 8GB to 32GB.

Chart Edit

Very Small Total Storage Capacity

Across all the laptops that are a comparable age to the Latitude 14 E7240 the total storage capacity range from 64GB to 1.1TB, and the average total storage capacity is 360GB. With a total storage capacity of only 128 gigabytes, the Latitude 14 E7240 has a quite small total storage capacity compared to most of the other ultrabooks that have been on the market for around the same time as the Latitude 14 E7240.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 128GB total storage capacity laptops currently available including cheaper notebook PCs such as the HP Pro (£864.00).

Laptops with a bigger total storage capacity that might be worth looking at include the Lenovo X1 Carbon (180GB and higher rated) or the ThinkPad X1 Carbon (£896.00) (180GB and cheaper), or the X1 Carbon (£932.99) (180GB and cheaper) both from Lenovo.

The processor clock speeds of similar spec laptops that have been around for a comparable time to the Latitude 14 E7240 range from 1GHz to 2.9GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 1.8GHz. The Latitude 14 E7240 has one of the slower processor clock speeds (only 1.6 gigahertz) amongst ultrabooks of this age.

If this notebook PC processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might want to consider the DELL XPS 13 (£1,199.01) (1.7GHz and cheaper), or the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon (£896.00) (1.8GHz and cheaper).

With an internal memory of only 4 gigabytes, the DELL Latitude 14 E7240 has a fairly small internal memory compared to most of the other laptops of a similar age and type to the Latitude 14 E7240.

Alternative 4GB internal memory notebook PCs currently available which you might want to consider include cheaper notebook PCs such as the HP Pro (£864.00).

If this notebook PC internal memory is too small for you then you might also want to look at the ThinkPad X1 Carbon (£896.00) (8GB), or the X240 (£1,299.89) (8GB) both from Lenovo or the DELL XPS 13 (£899.00) (8GB) which is also cheaper.

We compared this notebook PC to all the other portable PCs with a touch sensitive screen and we think the X240 (£1,299.89), or the X240 (£1,299.89) both from Lenovo which is also cheaper is also worth considering.
