The Dell Latitude E7440 could be the most productive Ultrabook we’ve ever tested. Working fascia, speed, battery life, ports, options, the list of plus-points goes on, but only for certain versions. Read on for a full review of this business-focused Ultrabook. Read the rest of this entry »
Amazon is running their Black Friday deal week already and if you’re decisive, you can save big on a Samsung ATIV or Dell XPS 12 Ultrabook.
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 have announced a Latitude 7000 series laptop that, in some configurations, will be an Ultrabook. It’s aimed at business and education, offers VPro and other business features, a large set of options and comes in 12-inch and 14-inch versions, unlike the similar, Ivy Bridge Ultrabook that only came in a 14-inch version.
Testing power usage on Haswell Ultrabooks is difficult due to the huge range of scenarios that the next generation Ultrabooks have. They’ll stream music for days and yet if you try to do too much gaming on them, you might be out of juice in as little as two hours. What we can say though, without a shadow of a doubt, is that the battery life on Haswell Ultrabooks, compared to Ivy Bridge Ultrabooks is hugely improved. We’ve got a Dell XPS 12 with Haswell here that proves it.
At Computex 2013, Dell is showing off their new XPS 11 Ultrabook — it’s an impressive combination of many of the latest technologies. First is Haswell / 4th-gen Core, Intel’s latest processor, then there’s a high density 11-inch screen. On top of that, we’re looking at a convertible Ultrabook that flips just like the Lenovo Yoga. Impressive as it may be, we see some early red flags.
Some Ultrabooks focus on getting things done and although the end result is often a little on the dull side you can sense that you’re moving faster than with some other laptops and Ultrabooks. The Dellis one of those Ultrabooks and we’ve just had the pleasure of a few weeks testing it. Full review below.; Overview review video at the bottom of this post.
Dell’sUltrabook, their first Ultrabook in the Latitude line, has been put through MIL-STD-810 testing by GCN and came through with flying colors.
The DellTouch is here for a review (with an Nvidia GT630M GPU) and out of the blue, a Ultra Touch (with SSD) turned up today too so as is the law around these parts, I unboxed them for you. Actually I took 15 minutes to take a good look at both and, ahem, dropped the in the process!
Dell’shas been available for a while and has been well received but a couple of features were not as well liked as others. Next week an updated version of the Ultrabook will be available which addresses one of the major perceived shortcomings and adds a few other related improvements as well.
The Dell XPS 12 has caught the attention of many people since it leaked last May but that could be attributable to it having one of the coolest design features we’ve ever seen on an Ultrabook. The flip-screen is impressive. But is it useful? And how good is the XPS 12 as a laptop? Read-on for the full review.

As always, I welcome discussion below. What do you think of Ultrabook Convertibles and what device impresses you the most?
The Dell finally upgrading the internals to the latest Ivy Bridge processors from Intel, Dell left the 13.3-inch display with the same measly 1366×768 resolution — not unusable by any means, but not what you expect on a premium device. Now Dell is finally giving the a full 1080p display.Ultrabook was well regarded as a first generation Ultrabook when it launched back in early 2012. Unfortunately Dell has done little to keep the competitive with second-generation Ultrabooks. Despite

Dell’s project Sputnik was formed to create a Linux-based developer-focused distro that would run on specific hardware. Over the last 7 months Dell have been working to build a final product with developers and component suppliers using the Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook. Developer edition models went out in July.
There have always been thoughts that a real product would hit Dell’s product range but that’s been confirmed now by project manager Barton George.
