Dell Latitude 9330 2-in-1 review (2023) a great business laptop

The Dell Latitude 9330 is light, compact and powerful.

The Dell Latitude 9330 2-in-1, which starts at $1,969 and was tested at $2,619.63, might end up in one of these notebook roundups: It’s a business laptop that can also be used as a tablet and is very small and light. In any category, this Latitude is a stylish, compact 2-in-1 laptop with fast performance and useful features that costs a lot for an individual. Its 13.3-inch screen is a little bit smaller than the 14-inch screens on most business laptops, but it’s also a little bit easier to carry around.

Dell Latitude 9330 2-in-1: Description

On Dell’s website, the most basic 9330 2-in-1 we can build costs $1,969. It has an Intel Core i5-1230U processor, a small amount of memory (8GB), and a 256GB solid-state drive. The only screen that can be used is a touch screen with 2,560 by 1,600 pixels, which is a sharp panel. Our $2,619.63 test unit has a Core i7-1260U chip with two Performance cores, eight Efficient cores, and 12 threads. It also has Intel’s vPro IT management features, 16GB of RAM, and a 512GB NVMe SSD.

The Latitude 9330 2-in-1 is covered in grey aluminium and is a slim 0.55 by 11.7 by 8.2 inches. It weighs 2.8 pounds, which puts it just below the ultraportable line. The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen 7 is a 14-inch competitor that measures 0.61 by 12.4 by 8.8 inches and weighs 3.04 pounds. The HP Spectre x360 13.5 is 0.7 by 11.7 by 8.7 inches and weighs 3.01 pounds. It has a 3:2 aspect ratio display.

Dell Latitude 9330 2-in-1: Design

Dell Latitude 9330 2-in-1 review

The Dell Latitude 9330 2-in-1 is made of metal and comes in a gunmetal grey colour. It isn’t flashy, but business laptops aren’t meant to be. For a 13-inch convertible, it only weighs 2.8 pounds, which is light. The small size and light weight make it very easy to carry around. You can also get it with 5G, which is great for people who travel.

There is no USB Type-A, which is a bold choice for a business laptop. After all, businesses often need to use old peripherals, and business laptops usually have a lot of ports to choose from. Of course, docks and dongles are made for that.

There are three USB Type-C ports, with two Thunderbolt 4 ports on the left. So, you can connect two 4K displays, one 8K display, an external GPU, and a lot of other things to a single port. The USB Type-C port on the right is USB 3.2 Gen 2, which gives you 10Gbps data transfer speeds. On the right side, there is also a jack for headphones.

Dell Latitude 9330 2-in-1: In use

Dell Latitude 9330 2-in-1 review

For our tests, we took this laptop everywhere, including to an office, on public transportation, on the couch, at a coffee shop and at home. It worked well everywhere. On the go, it’s small and light enough to carry around easily, and it works well enough that you don’t have to find the “perfect” place to work, whether that’s a kitchen table or a coffee shop counter. We could be flexible, unlike those who needed a big table with an outlet at the right height.

When we worked at home, it was pretty much the same. We could use this device on the couch without having to move around a big laptop. When we used this laptop at a desk with an external monitor (or three) and other accessories, it felt like a full-powered workstation that could handle any task we gave it.

The i7 processor has been able to handle a wide range of daily tasks, including word processing, email, spreadsheets, virtual meetings, project management, chat programmes, music, and light photo editing. This laptop could handle everything we threw at it, even when it was running on more than one screen. We didn’t use this to edit 4K video or rework terabytes of audio files, but for a business professional who mostly does the things above, the Latitude 9330 is more than enough.

Ports and Features

On the 9330’s left side, there are two fully functional USB-C ports that support Thunderbolt 4, Displayport, USB-PD, and USB 3.2. On the right side of the phone, there is a port for a Kensington lock, a headphone jack, a third USB-C port that works with USB 3.2, and an uSIM slot, though eSIM is also supported.

Wi-Fi 6E is the first step towards connectivity, and even though there aren’t many routers that support it, the 9330 feels like a long-term investment because of it. As was already said, there is an uSIM slot for mobile 5G support, but you can choose an eSIM instead if you’d like.

The exact specs for mobile support vary by region, and in some regions, they may only work on certain networks. Bluetooth 5.2 and Miracast for wireless display are also on board. Our review model has a 480GB M.2 SSD for storage, but you can also get one with 1TB.

Keyboard and touchpad

They weren’t bad before, but they were just kind of boring. Both HP’s EliteBook 1000 series and Lenovo’s ThinkPad X1 series have the best keyboards on the market, so it’s really exciting to see Dell step it up like this. The keyboard feels much stronger than it did before, and it seems like the amount of force needed to press a key has changed. This makes it feel more expensive, comfortable, and accurate. It’s wonderful.

The collaboration touchpad, on the other hand, is one of the best things about this laptop. It adds buttons to a Zoom call that let you turn on and off video, mute and unmute yourself, share your screen, and open the chat window. Yes, it only works on Zoom. That’s the bad news.

Even if Dell gets Teams certification, which it is working on, I wish at least the video and audio controls were the same. Google Meet is what my company uses, which is great for me as a laptop reviewer because we don’t have to install any software to join a meeting. But also, the way we meet with people depends a lot on what platform they use.

Dell Latitude 9330 2-in-1: Performance

Dell Latitude 9330 2-in-1 review

As you might expect from a device with these specs, the 9330 works at lightning speed. When you click on an app, it opens almost instantly. Certainly, it feels as fast as you could want for everyday use. Switching to tablet mode is just as smooth, and the physical keyboard turns off instantly.

Benchmarking is a fun challenge because convertibles tend to get lower scores than traditional laptops. The Dell, however, punches above its weight when it comes to convertibles. We’re comparing apples to apples, so we are comparing our findings to other 2-in-1s.

Our own multimedia benchmark gave it a score of 119. This is largely because the 32GB RAM made up for the lack of a dedicated graphics card, but it’s still a pretty good score compared to the LG Gram 16, which got a score of 197. Even so, the video benchmarking showed encoding errors in a few places, which lowered the score and reminded us that this won’t be able to handle the most demanding gaming or animation jobs, but it’s more than enough for pretty much everything else.

Dell Latitude 9330 2-in-1: Battery

Dell Latitude 9330 2-in-1 review

You can charge the device in less than an hour if you plug it into the right port and use the 60-watt charger that comes with it. Even without Dell’s optimization features turned on, the battery life was an impressive 8 hours and 15 minutes. This is a big deal for a 3-cell battery, which is needed to keep the weight down. It’s a lot less than Lenovo’s Yoga 9i’s 14 hours, but real-world experience will vary depending on how you use it. Still, we’d feel confident that it would last a workday without a plug.

Final Words

The Latitude 9330 is a 2-in-1 convertible notebook that is very portable. Its 13.3-inch height and 2.6-pound weight make it a good travel companion. It’s not as light as a tablet-only device, but it’s still very light for a convertible device, and it does a great job of blurring the lines between the two. Its strong metal body and good looks make it one of the best convertibles.

Our review unit’s Core i7 processor handled our tough tests without a hitch, but it’s clear that this laptop isn’t made for CPU- or GPU-intensive tasks. But the Latitude 9330 is fast enough for business use and can even stream 4K video. We really like how when you start a Zoom meeting, the Zoom buttons on the touchpad light up automatically. If you want a bigger screen and better performance, think about the 14-inch Latitude 9430. Otherwise, the Latitude 9330 is a great travel companion.

FAQs

Which Dell Latitude is better?

The Latitude 7430 is one of the less expensive options. This version from 2022 has Intel’s 12th-generation i5 or i7 processors, Intel Iris Xe integrated graphics, and 16GB of RAM, which all add up to great performance.

Is Dell Latitude better than HP?

The performance of these devices might be similar, but other than that, it’s hard to recommend Dell’s Latitude. HP’s device has a better webcam, better connections, and even a better screen.
