We all now work with computers nowadays. Desktops, laptops, and even smartphones are available on our hands wherever we go. With more and more SMBs and enterprises on the rise, privacy is very important – and that is where Dell is focusing on with the new Latitude laptops. As for the Precision laptops, they are now even lighter than before.
Today there are a total of 8 different Dell Latitude laptops ranging from the highest-end to the entry-level, and there are also two more new Precision laptops.
New Dell Latitude laptops
Laptops these days are pretty much generic with more or less the same laptop body and specs, but Dell is here to bring something different by bringing in more features. This time, they are focusing on security and bringing in biometric sign-in features with multi-factor security options as well as some improvement to the quality of life while using these Dell Latitude laptops.
Starting off, the Latitude comes with built-in fingerprint readers that are integrated to the power button itself and also IR cameras for Windows Hello login, like the Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 9575. It now also comes with FIPS 201 Smart Card Reader for authentication. For privacy purposes, there is something called Dell SafeScreen. This is technically built-in polarizer layer integrated into the screen itself to reduce the field of view, eliminating prying eyes from spying on your laptop screen. It is included in all Latitude 7000 series and some of the Latitude 5000 series of laptops.
One more powerful utility that the Dell Latitude laptops have is SafeBIOS utility, whereby the BIOS is monitored and have its integrity verified securely in the could.
The new Dell Latitude also comes with a proximity sensor, thanks to Intel’s Context Sensing Technology. In short, it works by detecting if the user is in front of the computer and turns on its screen and Windows Hello scans for your face instantly. Whenever you walk off the computer, the proximity sensor will detect the absence of its user and logs off by itself. What a convenient technology, honestly.
On another note, the new Dell Latitude laptops also come with a choice to be powered by 8th Gen Intel Core vPro series of processors and Intel WiFi 6 technology. In short, WiFi 6 is capable of copying 4K videos in a very short time like what we have demonstrated here.
The Latitude 7000 series now comes with the Latitude 7200 2-in-1, a 12-inch convertible laptop that is thinner and lighter too. All of the new Latitude 7000 series of laptops can have up to 32GB of RAM and comes with gigabit LTE speeds as well.
Then comes the Latitude 5000 series that comes in 3 different sizes, 13-, 14-, and 15-inches.

Weighing in at just 1.43kg, it can also be configured with up to 32GB of RAM with 1TB of storage.
