Dell today launched its 10th generation Latitude family of mobile devices for the business sector, and they include 3000, 5000, and 7000 Series notebooks and convertibles. 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... Read more...
Dell is cranking out a new, next-generation family of rugged Latitude notebooks. The notebooks were designed to survive in the harshest conditions and can withstand numerous drops, tumbles and just about anything else that you can toss at them (within reason). The three models that were introduced this week include the Latitude Rugged Extreme 7424, along with the Latitude Rugged 5424 and 5420. The Latitude Rugged Extreme 7424 is the flagship of the family and features a 14-inch FHD touch display that is protected with Gorilla Glass and features a 1000-nits brightness rating. The system can be equipped with either Intel Skylake or Kaby Lake processors with integrated or discrete graphics. The... Read more...
Dell has been hard at work updating its notebooks with Intel’s latest 8th Gen Core processors, and we’ve already seen the fruits of their labor in the premium XPS 13. It’s now time for the business-oriented Latitude notebooks to get a taste of Kaby Lake R, so here today we have the Latitude 7390 2-in-1 on the test bench, ready to be put through its paces. The XPS 13 impressed us with incredible performance, even showing inter-generational gains using the same chip between late 2017 and early 2018 models, thanks to an improved thermal solution among a few other tweaks. The Latitude 7390 we have on deck does not have the XPS’s fancy Gore material layer or dual-blower setup,... Read more...
CES is a distant memory now, but we’re still seeing new products arrive that were announced in Las Vegas at the beginning of the year. One of those is the Dell Latitude 13 7000 series, the latest in the company's line of business laptops. The 13-inch ultrabook landed several awards at CES for its sleek design and promised to add some spice to the staid business laptop market. At long last, the Latitude 13 7370 is here.Dell clearly pulled some key features from its popular XPS consumer series when designing its latest Latitude. Carbon fiber makes an appearance on certain models and all Latitude 13 7370s feature Dell’s nearly-bezel-free InfinityEdge displays. But the new ultrabook has a style that... Read more...
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, and a 500GB 7200RPM hard drive or a 500GB 5400RPM hybrid drive. Gigabit Ethernet and 802.11 AGN... 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 a convenient carrying handle, too. They feature 4th-gen Intel Core processors and either... 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 drawing here between these two ultrabooks’ respective durability is specific only to the bending backwards of...

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 line. The chassis is around 0.8" thick; it's not the slimmest we've seen, but that's fairly... 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 front. Waves MaxxAudio Pro is on board, as well as up to 16GB of DDR3-1600MHz (SODIMMs) memory ,... 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: An Ultrabook That's All Business  ... Read more...

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. While it’s true that a fleet of plain yet somewhat rugged mid-range notebooks makes perfect sense in terms of TCO and lifecycle management, you’re already bored... 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 the road. (We do enjoy pounding the pavement on the show floor, but it was nice to not have to shout... 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 ultra-portables lack optical drives and offer minimal connectivity options. With the Latitude E6430S,... Read more...
