Review: Dell Latitude 13 7370 Ultrabook

Dell’s new Latitude 13 7370 is an attractive Ultrabook that’s built for business and highly portable at a weight just under 2 and a half pounds.

This durable, thin laptop is made from aerospace-grade carbon fiber, and features a 13.3-inch display, a large, quiet, backlit keyboard, and a high-res LCD touch screen that offers seamless navigation between programs and browser windows.

The black exterior of this Ultrabook looks pretty cool, and reminds us of the design of an old black MacBook.

The laptop doesn’t come with battery estimates, but the CRN Test Center clocked in 4 to 5 1/2 hours before it needed a charge. The touch screen has a tendency to drain the battery faster.

Unfortunately, at a price tag of more than $2,000, the Test Center expected faster performance than its Intel Core m5 chip provided.

We relied on the touch screen quite a lot, because the track pad that the Ultrabook comes equipped with is frustrating to use, especially when it comes to scrolling through documents.

Non-touch versions of the laptop are available for less -- starting at $1,299 -- but at that price you also sacrifice memory, storage and speed.

While the design of the Latitude 13 7370 is impressive, the operability of device at a $2,000 price tag leaves something to be desired.
