Once again, thanks to the generous guys at Dell, we’ll be taking a look at the Dell Latitude E7370 Ultrabook. This notebook is basically the “Latitude” version of the XPS13 series, which Dell claims to be the the world’s smallest 13-inch business-class laptop. It’s designed for the business/corporate user and comes with additional features such as a fingerprint reader, cellular SIM card slot, Smart Card reader, as well as a NFC card reader.

The review sample we received is powered by Intel’s latest generation of Core M5 (Skylake – 14nm) processor running at 1.1GHz, featuring integrated HD Graphics 515 and comes with 8GB DDR3-1600MHz ram and 256Gb SSD storage. You also get large 13.3″ FHD (1920 x 1080), Non-Touch Infinity Anti Glare (16:9) WLED screen.
Dell is also offering the same model with the option of a 13.3″ QHD+ (3200 x 1800) Touch Infinity Anti Glare ETE with Corning® Gorilla® Glass.
When the Dell XPS13 series of ultrabooks was released a few years ago, it received rave reviews and won numerous awards. I, myself was using one for several years, until I moved over to a Macbook Air just a few months ago. So when I got the chance to check out the new Latitude E7370, I was excited to see what it was like in comparison.
Aimed at the business user, the new Latitude E7370 not only features Intel’s new Core M5 (Skylake – 14nm) processor, but also comes with the new USB-C type connectors, as well as all the additional business-class features … such as a fingerprint reader, cellular SIM card slot, Smart Card reader and a NFC card reader. The kind of things that you don’t normally see on consumer laptops, or even the original XPS13 for that matter.
Last month we reviewed the Dell Latitude E7270, which we thought was pretty decent. But how will the new Latitude E7370 compare? With a lower speed of only 1.1GHz (but with an energy efficient Core M processor), I’m not expecting it to beat the E7270 in terms of performance, but I am interested in seeing how it will perform in comparison.
OK, enough talk … let’s see what the Dell Latitude E7370 Ultrabook can do for us. We’ll start off with a short video.
