The brushed aluminum metal of the Dell Latitude 7410 is pleasing to the eye and very sturdy enough to handle multiple falls without any damage to the internal component. Dell claims that the design is military-grade, and has undergone several military-grade drop tests.
The brushed aluminum goes all the way around the laptop. It even encases the touchpad and keyboard. That gives the laptop a premium feel.
The right side of the Latitude 7410 is equipped with 2 x USB ports. The one closest to the rear can be used for powershare. A wedge lock and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
On the left side, there are 2 x Thunderbolt 3 ports, a microSD slot and an HDMI port.
The display of the Dell Latitude 7410 is a 14-inch 4K anti-glare screen that performs well both outdoor and indoor. The best thing about the display is that it is a low-power 4K display. It is gentle on the battery to improve its life.
Also, Dell claims that it comes with a blue light emission technology. It is easy on the eyes even when used for a long period at a stretch.
The performance of the Latitude 7410 equipped with the Intel Core i7-10610U processor and 16GB of RAM provides just enough power for business users. Enjoy all of its functionalities without any hassle. Intel’s vPro technology that lets an office management system connect to the laptop without being connected to the network of the computer is a good feature to have.
However, the price is rather steep compared with competition.
Storage blazed through the PCMark 8’s test with scores ranging over 5000. 4,000 is considered excellent. The performance of the Latitude 7410 failed to cross the 4000 mark on the PCMark 10 productivity score. This means the performance is a little below that of the last generation Latitude 7000 with 8th Gen Intel Processors.
One of the major laptop selling points is the lengthy battery life. Dell can can maintain it despite having a 4K panel. The low-power 4K display allows the 52WHr battery to last for 13.5 hours on a single charge.
The battery drain test includes a video loop of a locally stored 720p file that plays non-stop with the brightness set to 50 percent and the volume at 100% according to pcmag website test specifications and results.
The Dell Latitude 7410 is built to last with its metal chassis and sleek design. The rare combination of a 4K display and long battery life makes it a good option for business professionals. It is good to note that it is not the most powerful business laptop out there, especially for its fairly high price but is a good choice for office type workloads on the move.
For the best performance from a business laptop with a 4K display, we recommend that you get the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 7 for about $500, and no vPro technology. The Thinkpad X1 comes with 1TB SSD and a better keyboard too.
