Background and Identification
The Dell Latitude E7440 can be identified by its black keyboard with baby blue touches and the name Latitude E7440 written below the left side of the keyboard.
The Dell Latitude E7440 is a sleek, business-oriented laptop weighing 3.6 pounds. The device is made out of aluminum with a powder-coated base and either a non-touch matte LCD or a touchscreen that uses Corning® Gorilla® Glass NBT™ glass to prevent the screen from cracking. The E7440 comes with an HD webcam and microphone for video calls as well as a optional backlit keyboard perfect for late-night work. High end models often include an SSD (Solid State Drive), while lower end versions may use a SSHD (Solid State Hybrid drive). To protect workplace or personal data, the device offers optional security features including a fingerprint reader, smart card reader, and contact-less smart card reader.
Designed for professionals, the laptop either has Windows 7 Professional or Windows 8 Professional preinstalled. The system could be configured with a 4th Gen Intel® Core™ i5 or i7 processor.
Note: Depending on how the machine was configured if you have a Windows 7 machine, it can be done with Windows 8 Pro downgrade rights (most common), or a Windows 7 Pro key (uncommon, but possible). These 7 Pro product key systems cannot accept Windows 8.1 as the key is integrated into the BIOS, starting with windows 8. To quickly test, make a Windows 8.1 boot drive - if it asks for a key, it never had Windows 8 installed.
