I’ve been using Dell’s new Latitude 9440 2-in-1 for around a month now, and I think it might be their best-designed laptop to date.
Inspired by the future-leaning Dell XPS 13 Plus, the Latitude 9440 includes the same zero-lattice keyboard and overall design but with a bigger screen and a few tweaks to ensure it’s ready for business use.

I’d argue the entry-level model with an Intel Core i5 and 16GB RAM is more than enough for most people, but if you’re a heavy multitasker or plan on using more resource-intensive programs, opting for the 32GB RAM variant might be a better choice for longevity.
There are actually two variants of the Intel Core i5 to choose between, those being the Intel Core i5-1335U and Intel Core i5-1345U. These chips are very similar, but the 1345U has a slightly higher max clock speed and is vPro certified. You’re almost certainly not going to notice a difference between…
