Dell Brings Sexy Back To Commercial Latitude Laptops And 2-in-1s Along With Intel Whiskey Lake Refresh
The Latitude 5000 series includes the 5300, 5400, and 5500 notebooks covering 13.3-inch, 14-inch and 15.6-inch form-factors. Powering these machines are Intel 8th generation Whiskey Lake Core processors (up to quad-core Core i7 vPro). All of the machines support up to 32GB of DDR4-2666 memory (two slots available) and come standard with Intel UHD Graphics 620. The Latitude 5400 and 5500 also offer a discrete AMD Radeon 540X graphics if you need some extra muscle.
Display options for all three start off at 1366x768 and top out at 1920x1080 (there are numerous panel options available include touch/non-touch). Storage options top out with 1TB SSDs and all support batteries with ExpressCharge capabilities. ExpressCharge allows you to fill a battery to an 80 percent charge in roughly an hour. Likewise, ExpressCharge Boost will get you a 35 percent charge in just 20 minutes.
There’s also a new Latitude 5300 2-in-1, which is a 13-inch convertible that weighs in a relatively lightweight 3.15 pounds. It features a Full HD edge-to-edge display covered in Gorilla Glass and like its notebook counterparts is available configured with up to 32B of RAM and up to a 1TB SSD.
The Latitude 3000 family has previously been available in 14-inch and 15-inch form-factors, but is now being joined with a new 13-inch member. Dell calls it the world’s smallest and lighter “13-inch essential business notebook.”
Earlier this year at CES, Dell launched the Latitude 7400 2-in-1 convertible, which sports a 14-inch Full HD panel along with 8th generation Intel processors. In addition to be available in 13-inch and 15-inch notebook form-factors, Dell is also touting its 12-inch Latitude 7200 2-in-1, which features an anodized aluminum chassis.
All members of the Latitude 7000 family can be equipped with up to 32GB of RAM, Wi-Fi 6 connectivity and up to a CAT 16 Gigabit LTE modem to extend internet coverage out in the field.
“Our new Latitudes make it easier and more enjoyable to work, collaborate and innovate anytime, anywhere," said Rahul Tikoo, VP and GM for Dell Commercial Mobility Products. "With security concerns looming over both employees and IT departments, businesses can rely on our new Latitudes, combined with Dell Technologies Unified Workspace, to make it simple for IT to ensure workers have the best device for their needs – up and running fast, working smarter and always secure, wherever they are.”
All of Dell’s 10th generation Latitude notebooks and convertibles will be available starting tomorrow priced from $599 (Latitude 3000 Series).
