New Dell latitude - techbuzzireland

Dell Technologies has today unveiled new devices as part of a revamp of the company’s commercial portfolio. With a new Latitude 9440, additions to the Latitude 7000 series, a new Precision workstation and a new UltraSharp Curved Monitor, the new line-up aims to drive collaboration and productivity in the new world of work.

Introducing the Latitude 9440

The new Latitude 9440 caters to the needs of executives, salespeople and consultants, and it is packed with innovation in the world’s smallest 14” commercial PC.

Inspired by the iconic design of Dell’s XPS line, but with a deliberate aesthetic for business users, the Latitude 9440 is clean, smooth and simplified. The machined aluminium and graphite colour offer a sleek and premium look. Even with this beautiful two-in-one design, Dell has prioritized performance. Conference calls can take a toll on PCs but they are here to stay. Dell has updated its thermal design to rear venting dual-fan systems for a cool and quiet experience.

The new design choices cater to the commercial user for a comfortable all-day typing experience. Stemming from the Concept Luna sustainable PC workstream, Dell has reduced backlit keyboard power usage by up to 75% and increased battery life by three hours[iii] with the new mini-LED backlit keyboard technology. The striking new keyboard includes wider keys with no gap (also known as zero-lattice), an increased angle between keys and curvature on each key for easy tactile separation.

Incredibly light and small, the new Latitude 7000 series

The new Latitude 7000 series features Ultralights and aluminium options to offer a variety of sizes, form factors and functions for the diverse needs of the mobile professional. It includes a 16:10 aspect ratio and the same mini-LED battery-saving keyboard as the 9440 to make it easier to work productively, no matter the location.

The Latitude 7340/7440 Ultralights deliver productivity in a thin and light form factor for maximum mobility. Now available in a 14-inch display size, they are the world’s smallest and lightest 14-inch and 13.3-inch premium commercial laptops. Weighing under one kilogram (13-inches) and slightly over 1kg (14-inches), and made with magnesium throughout the full chassis, the devices are light yet extremely durable with a smooth and sleek touch.

The Latitude 7000 series is also available in 13-inch, 14-inch inch aluminium options, now with a new 16-inch aluminium option. Users can work efficiently with enhanced features of an enlarged touchpad and high-quality top and bottom firing speakers.

Performance and style reach new heights with Dell Precision

For professionals who require high performance, stylish design and more screen real estate, Dell has added a 16-inch thin and light mobile workstation to its Precision line-up.

The new Precision 5680 has the smallest footprint in the world for a 16-inch workstation, offering even more power and immersive experiences for creators and engineers. The specs are impressive: up to Intel® Core™ i9 (45W), and up to 64GB of DDR5 memory with NVIDIA RTX™ 5000 Ada Generation Laptop GPU. Users will benefit from the crisp 16:10, three-sided InfinityEdge display, haptic trackpad for quick and responsive feedback, four grade A audio speakers, up to UHD+ PremierColor display and FHD IR camera with proximity and ambient light sensor.

Dell has also updated the broader Dell Precision portfolio – from the entry-level 3000 Series mobile workstations to the most powerful Precision 7000 Series mobile, tower and rack workstations.

A branching ecosystem

A modern work setup requires both software and ecosystem solutions around the PC so that users can efficiently maximize productivity. This is why Dell has also unveiled the UltraSharp 49 Curved USB-C Hub Monitor. The device features a 49” dual QHD curved monitor that allows users to split their display into two 27-inch QHD partitions – without the bezel in between for even more virtually seamless multitasking. With financial traders, engineers and data analysts in mind for multiscreen productivity, users can connect and display content from two PCs simultaneously to one monitor.. It allows users to manage displays and peripherals more easily in one interface.

“Let’s face it, how we work and where we work today is different for everyone”, said Meghana Patwardhan, Vice President and General Manager, Commercial PCs and Software, at Dell Technologies. “Whether it’s hybrid work, remote work, flexible work or in-office work, one thing is fundamentally consistent: technology. It is the great equalizer driving collaboration and productivity, providing new experiences of flexibility and freedom.”

“While today many can work from anywhere, there are still limitations hindering our work experiences. Solving these challenges sits at the core of our design philosophy and represents the innovations in our commercial portfolio. It spans from the device to the ecosystem to the software and solutions that bring an elevated sense of connection and collaboration.

“Already known as the world’s most intelligent and secure commercial PCs – we’ve updated our commercial portfolio with new designs, new collaboration features and new levels of performance. In addition to our laptops and workstations, we’ve simplified our desktop portfolio, added another breath-taking monitor and extended intelligence to the entire PC ecosystem. Throughout it all, we’re thinking about sustainability, security, manageability and service offerings that help ensure businesses can meet their goals and free up the day-to-day burden on IT departments.“
