Dell unveils the 2016 lineup of Latitude business notebooks including the Latitude 11 5175, Latitude 12 7275, and Latitude 13 7370.

Dell has extended its family of business notebooks with a new portfolio of updated devices.

First, the Latitude 13 7000 will be the smallest 13-inch clamshell Ultrabook from Dell. The model chassis will utilize carbon fiber and an InfinityEdge display for a very narrow bezel similar to the current XPS 13. In fact, its design philosophy appears to be a hybrid of the XPS 13 and Latitude series. Its USB Type-C port will support Thunderbolt 3 for connecting up to two 4K external monitors simultaneously. Additional business-centric features include a smart card reader, fingerprint reader, RFID reader, and encryption software.

Next, the Latitude 12 7000 2-in-1 detachable will be just 8 mm thick with a unibody magnesium chassis. Dell plans on offering two keyboard options where one will be a slimmer, lighter version and the other a thicker, more premium version with backlit keys. Otherwise, the thicker and more stable model offers no other unique features such as secondary batteries or additional ports. The detachable will include 4K UHD options as well.

Lastly, the smallest of the bunch will be the 10.8-inch Latitude 11 5000 2-in-1 detachable with optional stylus and numerous security and management features. Its design is very similar to the Latitude 12 albeit in a smaller profile.

Prices and availability:

  • Latitude 11 5000 will start at 880 Euros for a launch in February 2016.
  • Latitude 12 7000 will start at 1785 Euros for a launch in February 2016.
  • Latitude 13 7000 will launch in March 2016 with starting prices to be announced at a later date.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
