1Dell Makes its Latitude 13 7370 Laptop Thin, Light and Tough
2Dell Latitude 7370 Looks Like It’s All Screen
The thin bezel around the Dell Latitude 7370’s QHD screen (3,200 by 1,800) makes it look larger than it actually is. This screen uses Corning Gorilla Glass for strength, backed up by aerospace-grade carbon fiber. The keyboard is large enough to be useful, and there’s a trackpad for the pointing device. A fingerprint sensor is available.
3Dell Moves to USB-C Ports
The Dell Latitude 7370 has moved to USB-C (Thunderbolt) ports and away from the older Type A USB connectors. Starting from the left are two such connectors, a mini-HDMI port and a SIM card tray for use with cellular connections. An optional card reader also can be installed on this side of the machine.

5There’s a Compact Keyboard
While the Dell Latitude 7370’s keyboard is necessarily slightly smaller than the keyboards on the 14-inch laptops I’ve looked at, it’s not significantly smaller. The keys are well-shaped, and there’s sufficient key travel to make typing comfortable. The touch-pad includes separate mouse keys, which makes them a little easier to find than those with integrated keys.
6The WD-15 Dock Lets You Work at the Office
Dell’s docking station comes with its own power supply and connects to the Latitude 7370 laptop using a Display Port over a USB-C cable and a USB-C connector. As many as three monitors can be connected to the Dell Dock, along with other peripherals. According to Dell, the WD-15 Dock can be used with other USB-C devices from other makers, but that capability wasn’t tested.
7The Dock Has Plenty of Ports
On one side of the Dell WD-15 are three different types of video ports: an HDMI port, a mini-display port connector and a VGA connector. Also on this side of the dock is a Gigabit Ethernet port, two USB 2.0 ports, an audio output connector above a USB 3.0 port and the connector for the power supply.

9Everything Is Well-Connected
The Dell WD-15 Dock connects to the Latitude 7370 laptop with a single cable. There also is a power supply cable that connects to the docking station, and a power cable to the 180-watt power supply. There’s enough cabling to allow for the power supply to be mounted out of sight from the docking station for a cleaner installation.

12The Adapter Connects Two Monitors
The two other ports on the Dell Adapter are for video: a VGA monitor connector and an HDMI port. You can connect two monitors to the laptop using this adapter.
