DELL recently announced that it will be bringing in a new lineup of commercial devices that are fresh from the halls of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2017, upgrading its Latitude and Precision products.
Dell says it is also looking at fulfilling customer demand for thinner and lighter professional products that offer greater productivity while staying secure.
Dell Malaysia’s field marketing manager for client solutions group Christopher Choong said people are demanding more versatile solutions that allow devices to work as both a tablet and notebooks.
The new products will boast Intel’s latest 7th generation Core processors, USB-C with Thunderbolt 3 connectivity options and updated professional graphics from Nvidia and AMD.
The star of Dell’s new commercial lineup is its Latitude 5285 2-in-1that provides the flexibility of a tablet with the productivity power of a notebook.
Weighing less than 1kg the hybrid device is built for mobility whether you are going to an office meeting or travelling.
With a 12.3-inch full HD, the Latitude 5285 is claimed by Dell to provide over 12 hours of battery life.
It features a unique auto-deploy kickstand that extends whenever the Latitude 5285 2-in-1 is placed on a flat surface. It can rotate up to 150 degrees angle for multiple viewing angles.
To streamline your workflow it has an optional travel keyboard and active pen that can be attached magnetically for easy transition between tablet and laptop mode.
Apart from that Dell claims the latest Latitude boasts powerful security solutions that include endpoint security and secure storage of passwords, biometric authentications and security codes.
Dell also introduced its new Precision 5520 mobile workstation, which it says is the thinnest and lightest 15-inch mobile workstation on the market featuring an InfinityEdge display for borderless viewing.
Built from the ground up for productivity, the workstation can be configured with a new 7th generation Intel Core processor and up to 2TB of storage.
