After walking around for over three years with the huge and heavy Lenovo ThinkPad T520, I’m finally getting a new PC for my day job at Steria.
We can choose between a huge and powerful “developer PC”, or an ultrabook, the Dell Latitude E7240. I chose the latter one, and it arrived on Friday while I was in Amsterdam. I’m picking it up from internal IT first thing tomorrow morning, can’t wait :-)
- 4th Gen Intel® Core™ i5-4300U Processor (1.9 GHz, 3M Cache)
- Intel® Integrated HD 4400 Graphics
- 16GB 1600MHz DDR3L Memory
- 256GB Mobility Solid State Drive
- 12.5” HD (1366x768) Anti-Glare WLED-backlit
- Windows 8.1 64bit
It’s not the most sexy laptop ever, but it’s very portable and has decent specs, especially since I could upgrade to 16GB of RAM. And I really don’t like Windows 8.1, but hopefully the Windows 10 Preview will become stable enough soon to upgrade.
