[CES 2016] Dell Expands Business Latitude Series; Introduces OLED, Wireless Monitors


Dell has expanded their business-focused Latitude notebook and 2-in-1 series which combine industry leading security, manageability, and reliability features for business users as well as stunning design. Dell has also announced a new OLED monitor, two InfinityEdge monitors with virtually bezel-less display, and a pair of wireless monitors that allow users to connect wirelessly using Miracast.

“For more than 20 years, Latitude products have been a leading choice among commercial customers worldwide for their unmatched security, manageability, reliability and support features,” said Kirk Schell, vice president and general manager, commercial client solutions, Dell. “With the new Latitude line, we are delivering commercial devices employees will desire for being thinner, lighter and more capable than many of the most popular consumer products without compromising on the security and manageability requirements of IT.”

Dell Latitude Notebooks & 2-in-1s

Dell’s new Latitude series of notebooks has been completely refreshed with thinner and lighter designs, more efficiency, powerful processing options.

The Dell Latitude 13 7000 Series Ultrabook™ is the world’s smallest 13-inch business-class Ultrabook. Built using layers of unidirectional 40 ton carbon fiber, the same materials used in applications like spacecraft and aerospace, the Latitude 13 can endure the rigor of heavy business-use while maintaining an attractive allure (a machined aluminum option is available as well). The world’s only business-class Ultrabook with InfinityEdge display, the ultra-thin bezel around the screen creates an enjoyable and exquisite viewing experience for presentations, documents and videos. In addition, the Latitude 13 contains the industry-standard USB Type-C allowing one cable for docking, power, video, audio and data. It also includes Thunderbolt™ 3 for 8x faster data transfer than USB 3.0 allowing end users to power two 4K displays simultaneously. A perfect fit for on-the-go employees, the laptop offers extended battery life and offers advanced security features – including a smartcard reader, fingerprint reader, RFID reader, and security and encryption software.

Built for the mobile elite professional, the Dell Latitude 12 7000 Series 2-in-1 is one of the lightest 12.5-inch 2-in-1s available and provides the best of both worlds for those who want the full functionality of a laptop, in performance and design, easily converted into a tablet. The unique design is free of cumbersome latches, locks or alignment pins, and instead uses magnets; easily transitioning from various use modes for maximum flexibility and productivity. The Latitude 12 offers a world-class ecosystem, including two keyboard options tailored for the professional’s work style. The Dell Latitude 12 Slim Keyboard is full-sized, lightweight, well-spaced with backlit chiclet keys for effortless typing, and offers a full range of viewing angles. In addition, the Dell Latitude 12 Premium Keyboard single-handedly connects to the tablet, and features backlit keys and mouse cursor control with a high precision, gesture touchpad. With a slim 8mm screen, hardened Corning® Gorilla® Glass NBT™ and magnesium unibody build, and the only business 2-in-1 with a 4K UltraSharp™ UHD touch display, the Latitude 12 is an impressive and striking mobile device for the most demanding mobile professional.

The Dell Latitude 11 5000 Series 2-in-1 is a thin and light 10.8-inch business-class 2-in-1 available with the world’s best security and manageability features. Designed with beautiful, premium materials including lightweight magnesium and hardened glass, the Latitude 11 is an eye-catching productivity tool guaranteed to please any business professional’s taste. Starting at just 1.56 pounds, the 2-in-1 is a simple, portable device that provides a seamless transition between tablet and laptop modes with strong pen accuracy for capturing hand-written inputs via the optional stylus. It offers IT and business professionals alike robust security and manageability capabilities, including comprehensive encryption, advanced authentication, cutting-edge malware prevention, and automated and streamlined system deployment, monitoring and updating.

Dell UltraSharp Monitors

The Dell UltraSharp 30 OLED monitor is Dell’s first OLED monitor, bringing together the advantages of OLED display technology to PC professionals working in colour-critical environments such as graphic arts and photography. The monitor delivers a cutting-edge typical contrast ratio of 400,000:1 that delivers “true black”, coverage of industry colour spaces such as AdobeRGB and DCI-P3, brilliantly detailed Ultra HD 4K resolution and an ultra-fast response time of 0.1 ms. It also supports USB Type-C enabling single cable power, video and data connectivity with compatible systems.

The Dell UltraSharp InfinityEdge monitors feature the world’s first InfinityEdge displays with ultra-thin borders. Designed with a complementing arm that offers greater adjustment flexibility and integrated cable management, this recipient of 2016 CES Awards in Innovation and Eco-Design helps maximize workspace and minimize desktop clutter. Both the 27-inch Quad HD and 23.8-inch Full HD resolution monitors support outstanding screen performance, colour precision and extensive connectivity.

The Dell UltraSharp 24 Wireless monitor and Dell 23 Wireless monitor are packed with the latest technology allowing users to wirelessly display and manage content from a Windows-powered laptop and Android smartphone concurrently via Miracast. The Dell 23 Wireless monitor has additional built-in speakers and a wireless charging stand for compatible mobile devices to enhance the no-wires experience.
