    It would be awesome if they make the Latitude 7490 the same form factor as this.

    I've had my eye on the 7370 for a while for the Core-m processor, this cpu seems to consistently get terrible reviews but I've been impressed with it in the Latitude 13 2 in 1 for being to run passively and not be too hot so I've since bought a latitude 11 and 12 with the Core-m as well. I've had an XPS 13 and a Latitude 12 7240 but found the fan noise and heat irritating, if the 7380 is replacing the 7370 it's perhaps time to grab on as I see the 7389 2 in 1 is also a ulv processor unlike the XPS 13 9365 2 in 1.

    It's more accurate to say that the 7380 has replaced the 7370. You will probably now only find the latter in Dell Outlet or resellers of the outlet stock. Yes, the 7370 won't win any performance prizes but will actually do fine in everyday usage where the CPU only needs to run at full speed for a few seconds at a time. I would note that the m7-6Y75 is actually slower in most benchmarks than the nominally slower m5 CPUs! This is because it reaches the thermal limit sooner and then throttles back so the actual work done in turbo mode is less. However, the recent notebookcheck review of the 7380 indicated that the fan noise was relatively low so it might be worth considering.

    Do the m5 and m7 have the same battery? One review claimed the m7 had a larger battery but the spec on the Dell site seems to be the same.

    I had read that review about the 7380 and paid close attention to the noise and heat benchmarks, my issue is though the likes of the new XPS 13 had many glowing reviews with no mention of fan noise or heat but even though I don't live in a warm part of the world I found the laptop was uncomfortably hot to use on my lap and the constant fan noise was irritating. I'm not seeing many other Core-m laptops so perhaps time to bite the bullet.

    There are 34Whr and 43Whr batteries. The higher capacity battery (which I recommend) won't co-exist with the security devices. I posted a photo of both batteries in the 7370 thread. I suggest we continue our discussion of the 7370 there as this is meant to be the 7380 thread.
