The Latitude E7240 is solidly made and well connected, delivering impressive performance in a thoughtful design. It's let down by the keyboard and a lack of configuration options, turning what could have been a superb business ultrabook into merely a very good one.
Given its specification and performance, the Nexus 5 delivers great value for money — if you can live with its (few) drawbacks.

Dell's business-class 23in. all-in-one desktop has a lot to recommend it, including unfussy design, solid construction, low power consumption and quiet operation. However, its graphics performance is moderate, the screen's viewing angles could be better and it's not cheap.
