Dell introduces new Latitude 13 ultrabook and business-focused 2-in-1s

Dell has announced updates to a number of members of its Latitude line of business laptops. The refresh includes the new Latitude 13 7000 Series Ultrabook, along with the Latitude 12 7000 and Latitude 11 5000 2-in-1 computers, all powered by Windows 10.

The Latitude 13 7000 shares similar design language to Dell's XPS 13. A 13-inch ultrabook, the Latitude 13 7000 features Dell's InfinityEdge display, and features, in addition to a standard USB-A connection, a USB-C port for power and data. It also features Thunderbolt 3 support and can power two simultaneous 4K displays. Additionally, it packs in features like fingerprint and RFID readers.

The Latitude 12 7000 is a 2-in-1 and features a 12.5-inch, 4K UHD touchscreen display, and magnetically aligns to one of its two keyboard options. You can use the Dell Slim Keyboard, which is full-sized with backlit, chiclet keys. The Premium Keyboard also features backlit keys, along with mouse cursor control. As you'd expect, the Latitude 12 7000 also features strong pen support. For its part, the Latitude 11 5000 features a 10.8-inch display, and is made from magnesium and hardened glass.

Both the Latitude 11 5000 and Latitude 12 7000 will go on sale in February 2016, with the Latitude 11 starting at $749, and the Latitude 12 at $1,049. The Latitude 13 7000 Ultrabook will start at $1,299.
