Dell Latitude 7370 Review

Verdict

Hands-on: Dell gives its best laptop a business makeover

We love the Dell XPS 13 – we gave it our coveted Recommended Award and it even won Laptop of the Year at the TrustedReviews Awards 2015. It’s so good that, despite being a “consumer” laptop, business people wanted to buy it. In response, Dell has made the Latitude 7370 – an XPS 13 with tweaked design and features for big business announced at CES 2016.

The basics are the same. It’s a 13-inch laptop in a very small body – a 13-inch laptop in a 12-inch frame as Dell likes to put it. It weighs less than 1kg, benefits from great battery life and is available with either Full HD or Quad HD screens. Nothing new here.

The differences start with the design. Black is the word; there are no fancy sliver bits here. Its all soft-touch black plastic save for the carbon-fibre lid. That’s fine with me, though – it looks great and the ultra-thin bezel continues to dazzle.

The keyboard has a wonderfully defined feel but it’s also whisper quiet, and the touchpad is large and smooth. The screen, meanwhile, is anti-glare. In fact, I was stunned by the lack of reflections in the brief time I had with it. It’s a rare pleasure these days.

The core hardware is much the same but for the addition of TPM security and Intel vPro, which is all part of the big-business integration.

Likewise, two USB-C ports and a Thunderbolt port provide ample connectivity. And if the default selection isn’t enough, Thunderbolt docking stations will expand that to plentiful proportions, such as supporting up to three 4K screens.

What’s not to like here? Take a great product, tweak it for business users and the result is that you have a winner. There’s nothing hugely complicated about the Dell Latitude 7370 given that it’s based on an existing product. Nevertheless, I’m glad Dell’s done it.
