Dell announced at the end of last week the introduction of two Latitude Rugged Extreme notebooks, namely the Latitude 12 convertible and the Latitude 14 laptop. According to the official press release, these two machines are built "for customers who require powerful solutions that can survive unforgiving conditions."

Dell claims the Latitude 12 Rugged Extreme is the first fully rugged convertible featuring a flip-hinge design which allows it to transform into a tablet when needed, but without compromising on performance or reliability. Its features include a bottom camera with flash that has 8 MP and resistive multi-touch display for recognizing gestures performed while wearing thick gloves.

Both machines in the lineup can be configured with fourth-generation Intel Core processors, up to 16 GB of memory and 512 GB of SSD storage. They feature USB 3.0 and native serial connectivity (dual serial/RJ-45 on the Latitude 14) and provide excellent autonomy - up to 8.5 hours for the Latitude 12 and 14 hours for its larger sibling. The list of features also includes mobile broadband, dedicated GPS and wireless capabilities.

The Latitude 14 Rugged Extreme has a base price of $3,499 USD and will be available on May 6, while the Latitude 12 Rugged Extreme convertible starts at $3,649 USD and is expected to arrive in mid-May.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
