Summary: I'm currently writing this review using this laptop. I originally bought it because most new laptops don't come with removable batteries, and a lot of them have the RAM soldered directly onto the motherboard. This laptop has a removable battery and upgradeable RAM.
Summary: The Dell E7440 is a fantastic performer in every area except battery life. The standard battery keeps weight down, which is often nice, but I rarely travel without a power supply because even with the screen turned pretty dim it won't make it through a full day of working.

Summary: After using a Dell Latitude E6540 laptop which is very fast but very heavy, this laptop is a dream. I should say this configuration is a dream. With 16GB of RAM, a 4th Gen i7 processor, and a solid state drive; it zips along very nicely.
