Dell is wrapping up the week with a bang, refreshing both its laptop and desktop lines for businesses. The Latitude refresh spans the business laptop line, from the value-oriented 3000 series to the high-end 7000 series models. Even Dell’s Rugged line is seeing new hardware and features. For those of us chained to our desks, Dell is rolling out new OptiPlex Micro systems. To top it off, Dell released the Dell Chromebox to compete with the mini PCs from Acer and others. The Latitude 14 3000 series will start out with Intel Core i3 or i5 processors, along with 4GB of memory, integrated graphics,... Read more...
Dell is touting its Latitude Rugged Extreme laptops that boast shock, water, and dust-resistant capabilities that go beyond industry standards; Dell notes that as these lappies are being used in environments such as the battlefield and in police and fire department work, there’s no room for failure. These notebooks are built to be virtually indestructible. It sounds like designing these Latitude Rugged Extreme machines was a lot of fun. Dell built them with magnesium alloy chassis for strength and flexibility and used ultra polymer for parts of the systems that require shock absorption. There’s... Read more...
Well now. Dell and Lenovo are of course direct competitors, as both offer a wide lineup of PCs, laptops, and more, but the former has taken direct aim at the latter by claiming that the Dell Latitude 7000 Series ultrabooks are more durable than the Lenovo X1 Carbon. Dell released a video showing lab tests wherein a pair of hands snaps the lid off of an X1 Carbon by alarmingly gently bending it backward. A Latitude 7000 suffers no damage when the same hands apply the same pressure. Setting aside for the a moment the questionable validity of a biased “lab test”, the distinction Dell is... Read more...
Haswell and Dell -- sounds like a perfect marriage, doesn't it? If you're on the lookout for a Haswell-based machine that skews to the enterprise side, your options thus far have been few and far between. But that's changing as Dell pushes out a new range of Latitude notebooks, which just so happen to also fall within the Ultrabook segment. It's a boon for a number of reasons, one of which being that enterprise notebooks are finally shedding the "big, bulky, and unsexy" stereotype. The 12.5" E7240 and 14" E7440 were just announced, each toting Intel's 1.7GHz Core i3 processor from the fourth-generation... Read more...
Dell has announced its lineup of desktops, notebooks, convertibles, all-in-ones, and gaming rigs running Intel’s 4th-generation Intel (Haswell) chips, and there’s a lot there. The sexiest new products are arguably the Dell XPS 27 all-in-one and the XPS 12 convertible laptop/tablet. The XPS 27 features an NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M (2GB) GPU in addition to Intel HD4600 graphics with either an Intel Core i7-4770S (3.9GHz) or Core i5-4430S (3.2GHz) CPU. The 27-inch (2560x1440) display features 10-point multitouch, and there’s a 2MP webcam with dual digital microphones integrated in the... Read more...
Ultrabooks are, in a word, cool. They’re slim, flashy, and lightweight, yet they’re rather powerful and offer users a laptop that can do it all in a form factor that begs to be touched and carried around (especially if it’s a convertible ultrabook, in which case the unit can double as a high-powered tablet). Business-class laptops tend to be the opposite. With all due respect, business machines are often almost comically boxy and dull, offering the bare essentials in terms of looks and performance. The Dell Latitude 6430u ultrabook falls somewhere in between... Dell Latitude 6430u:... Read more...

CES is a blast in part because we get to see and touch exciting technology and amazing prototypes and grill companies in person about the latest rumors pertaining to their products. Yet for as exciting as all of that may be, it’s also a time for companies to simply look us in the eye and proudly show off their latest wares, whether they’re headline-grabbers or just solid updates to existing product lines. Dell fell into the latter camp this year for the most part, showing off their latest products to us away from the bustle of the show floor, at a quiet restaurant banquet room down... Read more...
Business-class laptops don’t get much love these days, due to all the buzz surrounding ultrabooks and tablets. But there are still plenty of jobs that demand the processing power, storage, and general flexibility of a true business-class machine. If you still use optical media like CDs or DVDs in your day-to-day computing, a laptop with an optical drive is essential. The same is probably true if you travel often to give presentations: you’ll need plenty of video and network connectivity options to interface with whatever technology the meeting room or auditorium has available. Many... Read more...

Dell is rolling out its Windows 8 devices for business, and flagship of the launch is an ultrabook targeted at enterprise deployments. Also announced are a tablet and an all-in-one desktop. But typical desktops? They’re not making news today. The Latitude 6430u has a 14-inch display and is significantly lighter and slimmer than its notebook predecessor, according to Dell. And, the device is designed for the U.S. Military’s AMIL-STD-810G harsh conditions test. Dell is also touting all-day use on a single battery charge for the ultrabook. Like the tablet, the Latitude 6430u... Read more...
There was a time, not too terribly long ago, when a machine was immediately glossed over by average consumers as soon as the "business" label was placed on it. If you've worked in the corporate world within the past 10 to 15 years, you know exactly what we mean. Those dreaded "work laptops" were never ones to be proud of, and while they somehow managed to function, they were typically slow, overloaded with bloatware and unbecoming in terms of design. Dell's latest Latitude range is proof that enterprise laptops are no longer being overlooked when it comes to power, performance and even design.... Read more...

Those dreaded "work laptops" were never ones to be proud of, and while they somehow managed to function, they were typically slow, overloaded with bloatware and unbecoming in terms of design. But things are different these days. Starting with the smartphone, employees began a quiet movement to bring their own devices to work. Eventually,... Read more...
Companies have been pushing out new consumer notebooks at a rapid-fire pace these days, and it's about time another market got a few new ones as well.

Along with new hardware, the company's introducing the Dell Mobile Video Evidence Management solution that serves as a secure, end-to-end solution for mobile video capture, transmission, storage and retrieval. The new rigs provide enhanced performance, increased battery potential and anti-glare LCD displays.... Read more...
