Dell Technologies brings Speed, Security and Smart Design to Mobile PCs for Business
Sleeker, more compact and easier to carry whenever and wherever, the 10th generation of Latitude commercial PCs from Dell Technologies (NYSE:DELL) has been completely reimagined to address the needs of the evolving workforce. The new portfolio of Dell mobile business PCs is designed with IT departments in mind and aims to get business users productive faster and keep them productive longer, no matter when, where or how they work.
Redesigned portfolio boosts productivity, offers powerful security features
A powerful integration of hardware and software that transforms how IT departments deploy, manage, secure and support their devices, the new Latitudes includes a bevy of express technology options. ExpressCharge™ provides an up to 80% battery charge in just one hour, while ExpressCharge Boost™ charges to up to 35% in just 20 minutes . Select systems also feature Dell’s innovative ExpressConnect, which intelligently detects and connects to the strongest WiFi for up to 40% faster throughput than a conventional antenna, resulting in fewer dropped connections, more reliable file transfers and faster email syncs.
A recent Ispos survey conducted on behalf of Dell found that full-time working adults consider built-in security features to be one of the three most important factors when choosing a work PC. In fact, nearly 80% believe having security features built into their work PC helps keep their company’s data safe.
To address these concerns, the notebooks add new layers of enterprise-class security that saves users the hassle of remembering passwords and offers lightning-fast, secure sign-on. Many new Latitudes now can be equipped with fingerprint readers built into the power button and Windows Hello-capable IR cameras for a more trusted, biometric authentication. Many systems also can be equipped with Dell SafeScreen, new camera privacy shutters and FIPS 201 contacted Smart Card Reader or contactless Smart Card Reader with SafeID to protect user credentials. The laptops also support Dell’s recently announced SafeBIOS utility, that gives customers added visibility to BIOS changes by verifying the firmware’s integrity securely in the cloud.
The 10th generation Latitude portfolio is optimised for the new Dell Technologies Unified Workspace while giving workers a frustration-free, ready-to-work experience.
“The modern workforce’s computing needs have changed. They’re not at their desks nine to five. They’re in motion between meetings, remote or frequently travelling, and one-size-fits-all laptops won’t cut it,” said Rahul Tikoo, vice president and general manager, Commercial Mobility Products at Dell. “Our new Latitudes make it easier and more enjoyable to work, collaborate and innovate anytime, anywhere. With security concerns looming over both employees and IT departments, businesses can rely on our new Latitudes, combined with Dell Technologies Unified Workspace, to make it simple for IT to ensure workers have the best device for their needs – up and running fast, working smarter and always secure, wherever they are.”
Smaller, lighter business-class PCs designed for the way the world works
With more style than ever, plus the choice to be equipped with 8th Gen Intel® Core™ vPro processors and Intel® Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+) solutions to give employees faster connections, there’s a new Latitude for any remote worker, corridor warrior or on-the-go pro.
In addition to the award-winning Latitude 7400 2-in-1 launched this year at CES, the new Latitude line includes:

In 13- and 14-inch form factors, the Latitude 7000 series are the world’s smallest premium business-class notebooks available. Encased in durable new machined aluminum or carbon fiber materials, the laptops feature a variable-torque, drop-hinge design that enables easy, one-finger opening of the anti-glare, narrow-border display. Designed to minimise battery drain when in use, the innovative digital SafeScreen technology narrows the screen’s field of view for security while working in public.
The portfolio also includes the Latitude 7200 2-in-1, which sports a thinner, lighter design, brushed anodised aluminum premium finish and backlit keyboard.
