We’re not done with CES 2018 by a long shot and have another announcement from Dell, this time with regards to their Dell Latitude lineup focused on business use. The refreshed Dell Latitude notebooks and 2-in-1s introduced at CES are faster, more functional, and even smaller than their previous iterations.

“Everybody wants a fast computer that improves their productivity, fits their personal workstyle, and is something they’re proud to use in front of their customers or at the local coffee shop,” says Andy Rhodes, Vice President Commercial Mobility Solutions and Edge IoT at Dell. “Today at CES, we’re introducing a refreshed lineup of Latitude notebooks and 2-on-1s that are much faster, more functional and surprisingly small and beautiful.”

When it comes to business, increased productivity is the name of the game. The new Latitude devices are available with new 8th Gen Intel Core vPro 15W dual-core and quad-core processors. During benchmark tests using SYSmark 2014, the new Latitude 7390 2-in-1 saw a 72% performance increase over the previous 7th Gen processor models. Dell’s commercial devices also offer additional security and optional multi-factor authentication options.

The company has also added more functionality including a Super Low Power (SLP) display in the Latitude 7490 notebook which requires 50% of the power required to run a standard FHD display. Less power means more battery life and the 7490 should get up to 22 hours with the new SLP display — more than 5 hours extra battery over a standard Full HD display. Dell is also introducing new WiFi technology called Active Steering Antenna that chooses from four different radio wave patterns to find the optimal connection.

Let’s take a quick peek at what the Dell Latitude lineup has to offer business users this year.
