Dell debuts Latitude 5340, 5440, and 5540 business laptops with 13th Gen Intel Raptor Lake CPUs
Dell today announced the Latitude 5340, 5440, and 5540 business laptops. In addition to showcasing Intel's latest Raptor Lake processors, the laptops represent Dell's push in conservation and sustainability as their cases are partially made from recycled material.
The Latitude 5340 sports up to a 13th Gen Core i7 U15 CPU with vPro, as well as up to 32 GB of LPDDR5 RAM, up to 2 TB of PCIe NVMe storage, and several security options (including an IR camera for logging in, TPM 2.0, and a variety of security-focused software). The notebook can be configured as either a 2-in-1 or a traditional clamshell laptop with a 13.3-inch 1920x1080 screen. The clamshell variant has three screen options rated at either 250, 300, or 400 nits, while the 2-in-1 has a single 13.3-inch touchscreen rated at 300 nits.
The Latitude 5440, as its name implies, has a 14-inch display with a resolution of 1920x1080. CPU options include up to either a 13th Gen Intel Core i7 U15, Intel Core i7 P28, or 12th Gen Intel Core i7 U15. All CPU options have vPro. RAM can be configured up to 64 GB of either DDR4 or DDR5 (dependent on the CPU choice), and storage is handled via up to a 2 TB PCIe NVMe SSD. The 5440 also has the option for an Nvidia GeForce MX550 GPU (2 GB DDR6 VRAM).
The Latitude 5540 is the largest laptop in this lineup, sporting a 15.6-inch FHD display rated at up to 400 nits of brightness. It can be ordered with up to an 13th Gen Intel Core i7 U15 or Core i7 P28 CPU (both with vPro), up to 64 GB of DDR4 or DDR5 RAM, up to a 2 TB of PCIe NVMe (2230) SSD and a 1 TB PCIE NVMe (2280) SSD, and an optional Nvidia GeForce MX550 GPU. Both the 5440 and 5540 support the same security features as the 5340.
All the models have two USB-C Thunderbolt4 ports (with Power Delivery and DisplayPort), two USB-A 3.2 Gen 1 (5 Gbps) ports, one HDMI 2.0 port, a headset jack, an optional uSIM card tray, an optional Contacted SmartCard reader, and an optional touch fingerprint reader in the power button. The larger 5540 can also be configured with a touch FIPS fingerprint reader in the palm rest and includes a uSD 4.0 card reader.
Dell highlighted the new Latitude's case compositions, as each piece of the laptop, its power supply, and its box are made from varying degrees of recycled or bio-based material.
All three Latitudes are available starting today. Pricing had yet to be announced as of press time.
