About this deal

A product going end of life does not necessarily mean it is not being sold any longer, and EOL means different things to different manufacturers. The Latitude 7420 steals the ThinkPad X1 Carbon's Editors' Choice award mostly because of its superior computing performance, which we'll discuss below, but there are a few ancillary reasons why some companies might favor the Latitude. GB of images from our AV-Pro V60 test card to the desktop took about six seconds, which is even slightly faster than the Latitude 7410.

However, there is not much to upgrade, since RAM and WLAN are soldered and there is no memory socket. The Latitude 7420's direct competitors include other high-end business subnotebooks such as the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon G9, ThinkPad T14s, the HP EliteBook 840 Aero, and - as dGPU models - the affordable MSI Modern 14 and the ThinkPad T14 Gen2. Only for the iGPU is it noticeable: the fps in the first seconds increase slightly; instead of 45 watts, the SoC can consume 50 watts for a few seconds. In more intense multimedia content creation tasks like video conversion and image editing, the Latitude 7420 also delivered competitive results. The Latitude 7420 is a solid and plain business device without optical frills, but with countless features and options in terms of security.The Lenovo X1 Carbon and the HP EliteBook series, for example, come with TrackPoint or dedicated keys for video conferencing, and both are lighter than the Dell. The touchpad is slightly larger than the one on the Latitude 7410, which gives oversized fingertips like mine more room to move. Even the varnished carbon fiber baseplate feels duller than mere varnish, although the same coating is not used here.

General Product Type Notebook Operating System Windows 10 Pro 64-bit Edition + Windows 11 Pro Licence - Multilingual User Interface (MUI) Processor / Chipset CPU Intel Core i5 (11th Gen) 1135G7 / 2. This runtime has little significance for practical use, which is why it is not available for all models. You'll find a third USB port with the rectangular Type-A connector on the right edge, handy for connecting older peripherals. Our test device, with a proximity sensor, IR and SmartCard, almost drove us insane because the system quickly logged off as soon as we briefly moved away.A powerful laptop in a thin design, expect some normal/noticeable noise/heat during use/under heavy load (respectively).

It features Comfort View Plus, an always-on, built-in low blue light solution that reduces harmful blue light while delivering excellent color. Experience the immense processing power of a notebook that doesn’t sacrifice component quality at the expense of a portable design. The service tag shows Dell UK warranty 2027 (we're unable to transfer the ownership, sometimes serviced still, see photo 3).We strongly recommend springing for the upgraded 4-cell, 63-watt-hour battery in our review unit, since the base model comes with a 3-cell, 42-watt-hour battery that likely won't last as long.
