The Dell Latitude E7240 sports a 12.5-inches Full HD touch screen with a resolution of 1920 × 1080p. The color reproductions are extremely bright, vivid, and exceptionally vibrant, thanks to the integrated IPS technology. Unfortunately, other Notebooks like 13-inches MacBook Pro offers above 1080p resolutions, but the Latitude E7240 have great visuals too.

The Dell Latitude E7240’s screen proved to be the brightest among other closest competitors. With 411 lux brightness, the Notebook outshone the Sony VAIO Pro 13 (237 lux), MacBook Pro (340 lux), Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus (251 lux), and Lenovo X240 (325 lux).

Dell Latitude E7240: Keyboard and Touchpad

Unlike other Notebooks, typing on the E7240’s keyboard proved to be a dream come through for us. The well designed backlit keyboard is slightly concave with well-shaped keys, making it easy to identify any of the keys even in the dark. Meanwhile, the keys delivers the needed amount of tactile feedback and resistance to pave way for a smooth typing experience.

Instead of opting for a clickpad, Dell deployed a traditional cube-shaped touchpad with two mouse buttons. The 3.1 x 1.8-inches touchpad performed exceptionally well, allowing us to smoothly navigate through documents and also execute using two-finger gestures. Unfortunately, there’s no pointing stick which is found on larger 14- and 15-inches Notebooks.

Dell Latitude E7240: Processor and Storage Options

The Dell Latitude E7240 is powered by a 4th Gen 1.9Ghz Intel Core i5 4300U chipset that’s paired with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of inbuilt storage. While using the Notebook, the Latitude E7240 performed above our expectations of average performance. The Latitude E7240 effectively handled basic tasks including web browsing with more than 10 open tabs without experiencing any hiccups.

Also, the Latitude E7240 fourth-generation Intel HD graphics 4400 delivers stunning graphics at ease more than other Notebooks of this range. Mid-range games played absolutely well on this laptop, but the latest 3D games failed to perform at it’s best.

Apart from the 4GB and 128GB SSD model, there’s another top model that will cost you more but offers a 2.1GHz Intel Core i7-4600U processor, 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD. Those on a low budget have the opportunity of acquiring the Latitude E7240 but with a lower 1GB or 2GB RAM, a 3-cell Lithium-Ion battery, and 1366 × 768 display.

Dell Latitude E7240: Battery Capacity

On the battery side, the Latitude E7240 lasted for 5 hours 30 minutes on our battery test that involves continuous web browsing with the brightness set at 40%.
