This laptop is quite good in terms of quality, but I always felt unsure about it. Sometimes it can be super fast and sometimes it will get slower. But the general speed is quite good. I like how the keyboards are sensitive and it's easy to use, you don't really need to tap the key normally, I just simply rest my fingers on the keys and it will work. I love the display on this laptop. It's so clear. The laptop run quite smoothly, but not always because sometimes in fact quite often when you click on something it takes a long time to process the function or sometimes it just doesn't work as if the laptop decided to ignore me. This is so annoying and wasted lots of time. But I quite like the texture, it would be even better if it's made out of metal. The design is Okay, but personally not my style, I always felt that the base was a bit thick like the other laptops I have used. The surprisingly, it's quite like encase when I bought this I was expecting a heavy laptop. But this is great. I find this laptop efficient and the battery life is amazing, once I accidentally forgot to turn off the laptop and it's stayed there for about 15 hours before I realise. By the time I turned it off, there is still about 12% battery left. Overall I think this laptop is great but not exactly reliable. Since it doesn't alway run smoothly.
The Dell Latitude E7440 laptop has a simple sleek look, is light, has a great screen, very easy to set-up (even for a non-computer whizz such as myself), and overall is very user-friendly. The Dell Latitude E7440 is cheap and a bit bland-looking, but its powered by a class Intel processor, with a high-resolution screen so you can see clearly .The Battery time is great, and it has an on-screen reminder of when to plug it in for charging or to plug out the battery when full charge is reached. I would say this laptop would be perfect for someone who mainly needs it for browsing the internet, watching movies or playing games, or simply office work. The … feels solid, and packs a nice keyboard and a fair amount of battery life (up to 6 hours). You will obviously need Wi-Fi connection; the Laptop runs a Microsoft browser-based Windows OS, and while the operating system has come a long way your options are still limited once you're disconnected.
The Dell Latitude E7440 is based on the cheaper end of the spectrum. It is made out of plastic and weighs at a total of 1.2kg, which is not bad for a laptop; its definitely not heavy in my hands or when carrying it in a bag, so very good. You could say the laptop is stylish too: there's a shiny little finish bordering the track pad, and the keyboard buttons are arrange in a modern style to give you that eccentric look and feel when using the laptop
I and my family love using the dell Latitude E7440. It’s comfortable to work on in and out of my home office, yet it’s remarkably resistant to glare and fingerprints, and responds beautifully to my touch. My fingers fly around on its large keyboard like they were made for each other, and the trackpad works great when I need it and stays out of the way when I don’t (read: no AWOL cursors). The keyboard deck has just the right slightly rubbery feel that lets my palms rest comfortably on it for long stretches.
And I’m sure it will stick in yours, too, whether you’re a consumer, small business owner, or an IT buyer for a large enterprise. On the other hand, quality-made tools are expensive. Let’s see what the Latitude E7440’s price-to-performance ratio looks like.
The E7440 manages to be both pretty and rugged, its shell formed by the tough metal and carbon-composite material quickly gaining favor with higher-end PC makers. When I gripped the E7440 by the two ends and tried to twist it, it didn’t give one iota. Even the screen panel, a mere quarter-inch thick, barely flexed when I whipped the lid up by just its corner and snapped it shut again.
Dell says the machine has passed no fewer than 18 MIL-STD-810G tests, including being subjected to extreme heat and cold, high humidity, vibration, drops onto a hard surface, blowing sand and dust, and liquid spills on the keyboard.The Latitude E7440 has a gorgeous, non-glare with native resolution of 1920x1080 pixels and the best off-axis viewing I’ve seen so far. The keyboard flexes in its middle and its keys bounce a little much, but they don’t clatter and they render nearly every keystroke correctly. The slightly concave keys are nicely islanded from each other, and offer just the right level of friction. Four levels of backlighting are available, which makes the computer easier to use and reduces the load on the battery when you don’t need its brightest settings.
The Laptop is the hinges will loosen up with time, but they are currently very stiff. As a result opening the computer is a two handed task the absence of any recess on the front to provide a finger hold for lifting the display is a silver grey color with a shiny dell logo in the center and the rest of the computer is black except for a thin silver grey strip around the edge of the chassis. I personally like the blackish interiors because there is no glare from the keyboard and the lettering stands out clearly.
In keeping with the serviceability objective of the Latitude range, the battery is removable and there are only two screws,holding the cover to the main board. The owner manual provides detailed explanation of how to remove and replace parts. The location of the battery under the palm rest not only provides a counter balance to the display, but also keeps it away from the hot components.
Dell provides a number of options of he internal configuration came with WWAN 3G card but the same slot can be used for an MSATA SSD. Instead the it's in my E7440 was located in a frame in the drive bay. The noote book came with an empty RAM slot but this did not stay empty for long because I already had a spare 4GB. How ever the rest of me does not want to carry around a bigger notebook with me and most parts are located on back. It still ok with this notebook.
If I had a spare £1000 I would probably not spend it on a laptop, my boss is a different matter and bought himself a Dell Latitude E7440 earlier this year. He has guarded it with his life but had to trust me with the password when he went on holiday and forgot to download an important document, I agreed to help him out if he'd let me play with it for the rest of the fortnight he was on holiday.
This is a 14" Ultrabook running Windows 10 and the only downside to use it is a quite poor battery life of just four hours at full charge. The battery is easily taken in and out so you could carry a charged spare but for the high initial cost I would expect better life than this without having to carry a second battery.
The laptop is comfortable to type on and the installed artists software tells me exactly why my graphic designer boss chose this laptop over others on offer at the same time. I remember his purchase decision as he asked advice from the rest of the team and based on his high tech design work it was obvious this was the best in the price range he had available.
The screen is excellent and shows up nuances of colour and texture well, this is on all screens whether working or surfing the internet but as a designer I do appreciate the clarity of line and depth of colour shown on this screen.
Processing is extremely quick and navigating between programmes, apps and function is immediate. The laptop is responsive to everything you want to do and the high quality mousepad is for once easier to use than having a wireless mouse, I struggled with the right click to begin with as that's touch sensitive and I would find myself accidentally double clicking but once I'd trained my thumb to just press once I was fine.
I'd recommend this laptop and would love one for myself, when my annual review comes up I intend to explain how my work could be improved if I had one of these and it's true as things seem to come together so much quicker and better on a quality machine like this one.
If you're looking for Windows 10 in a slim, affordable package, Dell's new Dell Latitude E7440 is shaping up to be a good option. Available for pre-order for $349, this 2-in-1 features a crisp, detachable display, the latest Intel Atom x5 processor and a dedicated button for pulling up Windows virtual assistant Cortana.
By comparison, the Dell Latitude E7440 starts $499 and includes an Atom x7 CPU and full HD 10.8-inch display, but it doesn't come with a keyboard. That costs an extra $129.
The Click 10's design is simple and sleek, sporting a thin, silver keyboard dock and a 10.1-inch, 1900 x 1200 display that can snap off and be used as a standalone tablet. The machine weighs 2.2 pounds in laptop mode and 1.2 pounds without the keyboard, making it fairly travel-friendly no matter how you use it. At 10.5 x 7.4 x 0.3 inches and 1.37 pounds, the Surface 3 is a bit heavier in tablet mode but includes a built-in kickstand.
The Click 10 is one of several machines with a dedicated button for Cortana, Windows 10's new virtual assistant that can do things such as tell you the weather, search the web or open an app via voice commands. As with all Windows 10 convertibles, the Click 10 will benefit from the software's Continuity feature, in which the device will behave like a laptop with the keyboard attached, and automatically switch to a more touch-friendly interface when in tablet mode.
The Dell Latitude E7440 seems to offer a lot for a decent price, but we'll have to test it ourselves to see how it stacks up to other budget-friendly convertibles. Stay tuned for our full review.

While I was trying to compare this system with a series of other laptops I have used in the past, I repeatedly found myself saying “Well, on the other hand…” The Latitude E7440 is bulky for a 14-inch Ultrabook— it’s almost a pound heavier than Lenovo’s X1 Carbon Touch. On the other hand, it’s super tough. You could drop it on the sidewalk and it’d still deliver the sales projections for tomorrow’s meeting. I’m quite serious about that statement . It’s outfitted with both HDMI and Display Port. On the other hand, you’ll need to carry a VGA adapter to connect it to the old video projector in the boardroom. Its battery croaks after just 4.5 hours which is not too good. On the other hand, it’s removable, so you can swap in a spare. Just perfect.
One thing my two hands and I agree on: We love using the Latitude E7440. It’s comfortable to work on in and out of my home office. The 14-inch IPS touch screen is crisp and very bright, yet it’s remarkably resistant to glare and fingerprints, and responds beautifully to my touch. My fingers fly around on its large keyboard like they were made for each other and the track pad works great when I need it and stays out of the way when I don’t. The keyboard deck has just the right slightly rubbery feel that lets my palms rest comfortably on it for long stretches so reduces the rate at which I get blisters.
The E7440 manages to be both pretty and rugged which is fascinating to me, its shell formed by the tough metal and carbon-composite material quickly gaining favor with higher-end PC makers. When I gripped the E7440 by the two ends and tried to twist it, it didn’t give one iota. Even the screen panel, a mere quarter-inch thick, barely flexed when I whipped the lid up by just its corner and snapped it shut again.
It has a gorgeous, non-glare touch screen with native resolution of 1920x1080 pixels and one of the best off-axis viewing I’ve seen so far.

The slightly concave keys are nicely separated from each other, and offer just the right level of friction. Four levels of back lighting are available, which makes the computer easier to use and reduces the load on the battery when you don’t need its brightest settings. With a processor of Core i7-4600U processor; Intel HD 4400 graphics; 8GB RAM; and an operating system of windows 7, I tell you this machine for you as you won’t be disappointed. On the other hand, it’s not the best of laptops for gamers because of the graphics card Intel HD 4400 graphics present as it might not meet your basic requirements.
I personally quite like this laptop, it's definitely got it's flaws but I think they are overseen by the positives of this dell laptop. Firstly the dell has an amazing keyboard which is responsive and comfortable and it comes with the additional option of backlighting which enhances your experience even more and is extremely useful if your doing some late night work since this prevents you from straining your eyes. furthermore the laptop is robust and durable, I found that even after dropping it several times it still continued to work which is something that most laptops are not renowned for. I really love the look of the laptop, it has a sleek slate finish to it which means that if you spill drinks or nail polish on it then you can easily wipe it off without a problem. I also really liked the large screen which made a great viewing of my TV shows and films but the screen resolution could be a little better because when I compared it to my other laptops it did not come even close to their screen resolution which could be a problem for some. The laptop also comes with the touchscreen option which I got and I would definitely recommend getting as it is much easier to use and is actually more fun and exciting. Although the laptop is very good, the battery life was sacrificed and so you may not be able to play games for very long and is not a good buy for someone who needs it for travelling. Also the charger sometimes can overheat which could cause further damage to the battery life but the good news is that the battery can easily be replaced if necessary. I would still recommend this product, it is still a really good buy at just under £1000. I still love it, it's one of my favourites.
The Latitude E7440 is noticeably thinner and lighter than the previous 14-inch Latitudes I’ve used (removal of the optical drive is one contributing factor) and it carries an Intel “Ultrabook” sticker. However, the notebook itself feels at least as solid as its predecessors.
The overall feel is that the laptop is reasonably robust. While it’s possible to apply enough force to bend the display slightly, this does not cause any changes in the display. Most of the display back is metal with a plastic section along the top edge where the antennae are located. Unlike most Ultrabooks, the E7440 uses a standard removable keyboard unit, which makes is easier to replace when necessary. Perhaps the hinges will loosen up with time, but they’re currently very stiff. As a result, opening the computer is a two-handed task; the absence of any recess on the front to provide a fingerhold for lifting the display doesn’t help matters. Two magnets secure the display when it’s closed. The back of the display is a silver-grey color with a shiny Dell logo in the center and the rest of the computer is black except for a thin silver-grey strip around the edge of the chassis. I personally like the blackish interiors because there’s no glare from the keyboard and the lettering stands out clearly.2 E7440 internalsIn keeping with the serviceability objective of the Latitude range, the battery is removable and there are only two screws holding the cover to the mainboard. The Owner’s Manual provides detailed explanation of how to remove and replace parts. The location of the battery under the palm rest not only provides a counter-balance to the display, but also keeps it away from the hot components.
Dell provides a number of options for the internal configuration. My E7440 came with a WWAN (3G) card but the same slot can be used for an mSATA SSD. Instead, the mSATA SSD in my E7440 was located in a frame (which Dell’s parts list calls an “interposer”) in the 2.5″ drive bay. The notebook came with an empty RAM slot but this didn’t stay empty for long because I already had a spare 4GB 1.35V module waiting.
13 E7440 keyboardThe keyboard has good travel compared to most Ultrabooks. The bold white lettering is backlit (an option) to improve legibility under all lighting conditions. The layout includes Page Up and Page Down keys above the cursor left and right keys. The Caps Lock key includes an indicator light, but there are no indicators for the Num Lock and Scroll Lock which are accessed using the Fn key.
The touchpad is noticeably smaller than the pad on the Samsung NP900X4C and is a consequence of using not just separate, rather than embedded, touchpad buttons but also having a second set of buttons for a pointing stick. Nonetheless, the touchpad has proved to be quite usable once I had found the registry hack to change the default reverse setting for the two finger scroll. My E7440 includes a fingerprint and smartcard reader on the right side of the palm rest.
Has a tasteful, expert outline that is perfect for the work environment and also for home employments. Dell put in some alluring outline characteristics, however, including the underside for simple holding and the illuminated console. The showcase is likewise remarkable, with a wonderful completion, sharp 1920x1080 determination, awesome survey plot, and 10-point multitouch abilities.
