Dell topped out the spec sheet in several areas and included a lot of world's first in the Latitude 9440 2-in-1.
The Latitude 9440 2-in-1 has a touchpad that is 18% larger than previous generations. That trackpad is a Haptic Collaboration Touchpad, which is a first according to Dell. The laptop also has the world's first commercial zero-lattice keyboard.
Dell also claims that the Latitude 9440 2-in-1 is the world's smallest 14-inch commercial PC. It has a 16:10 display and thin bezels to help achieve that feat.
Some of the specs that are world's firsts in a commercial PC have appeared in other devices. For example, the Dell XPS 13 Plus has a zero-lattice keyboard for a while.
