The Dell Latitude 7390 is a convertible notebook with a 13.3 inch full HD display, a 360-degree hinge, support for an optional digital pen, and business-class features including optional support for Intel vPro, fingerprint sensors, NFC, or smart card readers.
But the laptop also borrows some design elements from Dell’s consumer devices, including slim bezels around the screen, making this convertible notebook relatively compact. The good news is that Dell left just enough bezel above the screen for a webcam, so it’s not awkwardly placed below the display the way it is on Dell’s XPS 13 consumer notebooks.
The new Latitude 7390 convertible should be available soon for $1149 and up.
The laptop features two Thunderbolt 3/USB Type-C ports, two USB 3.1 Type-A ports, an HDMI 1.4 port and 45Whr or 60Whr battery options.
Dell ships the notebook with a USB Type-C charger, and the company says you should be able to get up to 17 hours of battery life (according to MobileMark, so count on maybe 10-12 hours in real world settings).
The notebook supports up to 16GB of RAM, up to 1TB of solid state storage, and comes with a choice of a 7th-gen Intel Core i3 dual-core processor or 8th-gen Core i5 or Core i7 quad-core chips.
While the Dell Latitude 7390 is a little heavier than the Latitude 5290 tablet with a detachable keyboard, the difference is this model has a keyboard you’re not likely to misplace, since it’s attached to the rest of the computer.
If you’re primarily looking for a laptop and occasionally think you might want to use it in tent, stand, or tablet mode, I think this 360-degree hinge/convertible style is a lot more practical than the detachable 2-in-1. But if you’re looking for a device that’s tablet first, there’s always the new Latitude 5290.
