Dell intros the Latitude 6430u business Ultrabook
The US-headquartered PC manufacturer Dell will reportedly soon add a new Ultrabook, called 6430u, to its Latitude lineup. It is rumored that the portable computer will be aimed at business professionals on-the-go and will support Intel’s vPro platform. According to the Dutch site Tweakers.net, (the one that leaked the images) there is still no word on an exact release date or pricing.
Various sources claim that Dell’s latest business Ultrabook will be driven by a third generation (read: Ivy Bridge) central processing unit and customers will be able to choose among Core i3, Core i5, and Core i7 chips. Furthermore, the 6430u apparently features an aluminium chassis, a removable battery pack, integrated graphics and a 14-inch panel with a maximum supported resolution of 1366-by-768 pixels.
Reportedly, the device measures 20.9mm at its thickest point, weighs 1.74kg (without the battery) and houses up to 8GB of internal DDR3 RAM. A Solid-State Drive with a storage capacity of 256GB is also part of the base configuration.
The thin and light laptop presumably comes with plenty of security features as you’d expect from a business laptop. Apart from those offered by the above mentioned Intel vPro platform, the 6430u sports Dell’s very own Data Protection software accompanied by fingerprint and smartcard readers.
