DELL LATITUDE E7240 LAPTOP SPECIFICATION
The E7240 is designed to handle the kind of treatment a notebook gets in a mobile professional’s travel bag. The chassis is metal on the top with a metal band around the edge of the bottom section to help protect the corners, in particular, from knocks. Elsewhere, the bottom, wrist rest and screen bezel are made from solid, thick plastic.
There is a little give in the lid section, but the overall feel is robust. For example, the wrist rest — an area that can often have some flex — is quite solid. There is a trade-off in terms of weight, though: the E7240 weighs 1.36kg, which is on the heavy side for a 12.5in. ultrabook.

The dell latitude e7240 i7 specs is powered by fourth-generation Intel Core (Haswell) processors, with Core i5 and Core i7 choices on offer. Our £1,259 (ex. VAT) review unit was the top-of-the-range model with a 2.1-3.3GHz Core i7-4600U and 8GB of RAM. The entry-level £799 (ex. VAT) model has a 1.6-2.6GHz Core i5-4200U and 4GB RAM. The GPU in all models is Intel’s integrated HD Graphics 4400.
Storage in dell latitude e7240 i7 review was catered for by a 256GB SSD. There are no mechanical hard drive options for the dell E7240 and 256GB is the largest storage capacity on offer; all but the top-end model have a 128GB SSD.
Windows 8 Pro and Windows 7 Professional are both available on this notebook, but only the entry-level preconfigured model comes with Windows 8 Pro. It’s not possible to change the OS choice, Windows 7 Professional, for our top-end review sample on Dell’s website.
Wireless connectivity options are strong, encompassing Wi-Fi (802.11a/b/g/n/ac courtesy of Intel’s Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 chipset), Bluetooth 4.0 LE and mobile broadband (HSPA+). There’s a microSIM card slot under the battery for the latter. You can also configure Near Field Communications (NFC).
Connectivity on the chassis has been well thought out, with ports and slots intelligently placed. Unusually, the back edge of the chassis is used for some of these — it’s available because the battery fits on the underside of the notebook.
The back houses the power connector, plus Ethernet (RJ-45), HDMI and two USB 3.0 ports. This arrangement means you can keep trailing wires to a minimum. The left edge houses a toggle switch for the wireless radios and a smartcard slot. The wireless toggle is unusual these days, and it means you can disable all wireless connections with one easy action. On the right edge there’s an SD card slot, a third USB 3.0 port, a headset/microphone combo jack and a Mini-DisplayPort. This is a wider array of connections than we’re used to seeing on ultrabooks, and welcome for it.
The dell latitude e7240 battery Windows Experience Index (WEI) of 6.5 (out of 7.9) is impressive, as we’d expect for a notebook running a top-end Intel processor with 8GB of RAM. The WEI rating of 6.5 corresponds to the lowest component score, which was shared by the two graphics elements — Graphics (desktop performance for Windows Aero) and Gaming Graphics (3D business and gaming graphics performance). As so often with notebooks, integrated graphics is the biggest performance bottleneck.
The remaining scores were all over 7, with 7.2 for Processor (Calculations per second), 7.6 for Memory (RAM Memory operations per second) and a maximum 7.9 for Primary hard disk (Disk data transfer rate). So long as you restrict yourself to graphically undemanding workloads, the Latitude E7240 will deliver excellent performance.
The battery provided with our review sample was a 4-cell, 42Wh unit that slots into the underside of the chassis. We had no trouble getting through a day’s work on this battery, including at least an hour’s Wi-Fi usage.
Sound quality is particularly good, with unusually deep bass tones; you can also actually hear stereo effects from the laptop itself. Volume is loud, and the bass distortion at higher volume is, for a notebook, minimal: Dell has delivered the best sound we’ve heard from a notebook in a long time. Presentations involving music content could easily be delivered direct to a small audience using the dell E7240.
