Dell Latitude E7440 (SSD, FullHD, Haswell) Overview Video

E7440grab1

Update: Full review now live.

Need an Ultrabook for professional use that’s going to be flexible with connectivity and be available in hundreds of variations? The Dell Latitude E7440 is one for you to take a look at because it’s available in variants that would suit most people. From a ‘basic’ Core i5 with 1366×768 screen and hard drive to this, the 8GB, SSD and FullHD version with fingerprint reader and smartcard reader.

The version I have here isn’t actually an Ultrabook although one can argue that by last years specifications it is. it doesn’t have the touchscreen and it runs Windows 7. It will be interesting to test Windows 7 on Haswell to see if it’s as efficient as Windows 8. I don’t think it will be but we’ll find out soon.

Dell Latitude 6430U First Impressions. Solid, Productive, Possibly the Ultrabook I Should Buy

2013-04-24-2332

The Dell Latitude 6430u is here and under my fingers. 1366×768 and a 36Wh battery is a shocking thing to be seeing on a new Ultrabook in 2013 but wait because it turns out that if you don’t like that you can change it, and that’s one of the key features of this device. It’s aimed at business users and because of that Dell is offering a huge range of configuration options and in among the variants is an Ultrabook I really should buy; Maybe you too.

Dell Inspiron 14Z Ultrabook Appears Across Asia. Uninspiron? (Updated with US Info.)

A new Ultrabook has quietly gone live within Dell’s world. The Dell Inspiron 14Z Ultrabook is showing in Dell stores across Australia and Asia and is a little bit confusing. It’s at the 21mm limit for 14” Ultrabooks and it weighs a relatively heavy, no, very heavy, 2.37KG. Base pricing is coming in at the equivalent of about 1000 US dollars depending on the country. There’s nothing that special about 14z

Update: We hit the nail on the head…. See below.

Dell Working on the XPS 12, a Duo-like Convertible Touchscreen Ultrabook?

Dell may be looking to reboot it’s screen-flipping netbook in Ultrabook form. The Inspiron Duo was a netbook offering from Dell which featured interesting convertible mechanics, wherein the screen flips around right inside of the bezel, allowing the device to function as a standard clamshell or tablet device. The netbook version of this didn’t sell very well, but the convertible concept might not have died with it. With Windows 8’s vastly improved touch functionality just around the corner, we’d love to see the XPS 12 from Dell.

Dell XPS 13 Overview Video by Ultrabooknews

P1040613

The Dell XPS 13 is finally in our hands, just in time for the live webcast this evening. Late yesterday evening I managed to get an overview video made and it’s embedded below. It’s a fantastic looking device which a punchy screen and a great keyboard but there’s also an issue of ports. For photographers and videographers, one of the target ‘creative’ markets for the Ultrabook, you’ll miss any form of SD card slot. For those using VGA and HDMI screens, you’ll be annoyed at having to buy one or two adaptors and even more annoyed when you forget to bring them to that presentation! The XPS 13 is certainly not the cheapest Ultrabook, it’s not the lightest either. Will the style be enough for you?

Reminder: Live Webcast starts at 2100hrs (Berlin time)
