Dell Latitude CES Updates 5285 and 7490 series Notebooks
Dell has a few surprises in store at this years CES and that includes their latitude line, focusing the 5000 and 7000 series. Jeffrey sat down with Dell to find out the new Latitude products available at CES 2018.
Latitude Gets a Touchscreen
One thing Dell announced for the 7000 series is the embedded touchscreen which will help to take away that annoying glare and also help reduce waste, since only one pane of glass is needed instead of 2. It will also help from a battery power standpoint as well as making things thinner. You’ll see that on the 12, 13 and 14 inch models. These models also incorporate carbon fiber as well, which is a nice touch. Their new laptops will also have Intels 8th generation processors on board.
New WiFi Antenna in Dell Computers
There’s also a new wifi antenna to increase wifi connectivity by 155% according to Dell. The 7490 is Dell’s 14 inch laptop and in April Dell will launch a super low power panel for it, which will increase battery life without compromise. This takes 14 hours of battery life all the way up to 22 hours and of course makes it lighter and helps to keep things thin. Dell’s 7390 is a convertible with WACOM technology.
Pricing is $799 to $899. It’s pretty clear that Dell is focused laser sharp on innovation and this year they have some truly impressive offerings.
