Dell takes on the Surface Pro 4 with its Latitude 5285 2-in-1

Microsoft Surface Pro line just got some new competition courtesy of Dell's latest 2-in-1, the Latitude 5285. Introduced at CES 2017, the Latitude 5285 looks very similar to Microsoft's own 2-in-1 offering. The internals back that up, with the only major difference being the Latitude's slightly lower resolution — but still good — 1080p display.

On the inside of the Latitude 5285, you'll find Intel's latest Kaby Lake processors, up to 16GB of memory, and up to 1TB of storage. Meanwhile, that 1080p display measures in at 12.3-inches and sports a 3:2 aspect ratio. The Latitude 5285 also packs a kickstand at the rear, along with a detachable keyboard cover.

As for ports, you're looking at a single USB 3.0 port, 2 USB-C ports, a microSD card reader and a single micro SIM card slot. For the business crowd, there are also optional security features like a FIPS 201 Smartcard reader, fingerprint reader and contactless SC Reader/NFC.

If the 2-in-1 has piqued your interest, the Latitude 5285 is set to go on sale on February 28 for $899.
