Dell says this laptop has “drop hinge” technology which enables the largest screen possible in a smaller more compact chassis.

We’re just a few short days away from CES 2019 but many companies are already making announcements ahead of the show. This time Dell has taken the wraps off their flagship Dell Latitude 7400 2-in-1 laptop. Dell’s designs have been getting better year over year and the Latitude 7400 2-in-1 looks pretty sleek.

Dell says this laptop has “drop hinge” technology which enables the largest screen possible in a smaller more compact chassis. The four-sided narrow bezel is 25% thinner than the Latitude 7390 which is pretty impressive. Dell claims this is the world’s smallest 14″ commercial 2-in-1 and still houses a 14″ display.

Dell is also claiming 24-hours of battery life and the “Super Low Power” panel is supposed to optimize screen performance and save power.

Latitude 7400 2-in-1 is completely new from the ground up. No part was left untouched in the quest to deliver a device that IT loves to support and employees are proud to carry. We weighed every design decision against the tiny footprint of our four-sided narrow border display, made possible by a new drop hinge with one-finger opening.

From antennae design and placement, to a complete re-think of the thermal solution using a new GORE material infused with the same aerogel used on NASA’s stardust probe, the Latitude 7400 2-in-1 pushes innovation boundaries on every front for maximum capability and performance in the smallest package possible, and does so with a starting weight of just 2.99lbs. For security, we offer the exclusive Dell ControlVault 3 option for hardware multi-factor authentication.

Dell even kept a feature many of our competitors have thrown out, but that customers have told us they still use – an optional SmartCard reader. We also integrated a contactless SmartCard reader using the NFC antenna under the clickpad. IT will be glad to know Dell is integrating VMware’s Workspace ONE as well. Latitude has always prided itself on being the most secure, most manageable and most reliable, and this is the kind of engineering behind that claim.
