I've been using the E7440 for 6 months. With HD screen and 256 meg SSD (the liteon leaves my previous Samsung 830 behind) it is the best business laptop I've used. The fans very rarely cycle up - it is cool and the battery life is good enough to work away from a plug without worrying.

I waited to upgrade to Haswell as Dell has been insisting on using terrible screens for business laptops for the last few years. A backward step - no idea how people use 1366 x 768 for work/our company is full of them?

You will definitely need the mini port/VGA adapter for presentations - and for me if I undock/dock the USB ports don't always work on the docking station until a reboot, but this seems better after a Bios update?

Even better as I'm in Hong Kong the price was several hundred pounds less - or is that Dell ripping off the UK?

Excellent upgrade from my creaking 5 year old Latitude E6000 series - with 1400x900 screen. Easy to slide into your case - which I keep checking it is in as so light in comparison.

Great business laptop.

A powerful machine with great specs, but 1.6kg, thats not really ultrabook territory now is it?
Spec wise its no different from the sony pro, its also around the same price, and the sony pro is <1kg, which has made it my every day machine, my vaio z12 (2010) seems beastly in comparison, the other aspect is the instant boot.

14 inch screen instead of 13 though, and removable battery, the sony pro has the battery slate, but its not really the same thing.

It made my paws itch and didn't have a cup holder.

The E5440 however is awful, with the fan at 3,000rpm almost constantly and only switching off if you leave it completely idle for 10 minutes.

Apparently this incredibly dumb fan control behaviour is by design, meaning this will be my first and last Dell.

I couldn't get the jack port to work as a line in... any hep is appreciated. When I plug in anything, the pop up allows me to choose speakers, headsets, but not Line in and there is no manual setting either... Windows 7 this machine is... :(
