Dell plans to launch at least two new ultrabooks under its business-friendly Latitude line this year. That’s according to a leaked product roadmap which appears to show the company’s plan for Latitude laptops through the end of the year.
The ultrabooks will reportedly be notebooks with 12.5 inch displays and branded as part of the Dell Latitude E700 series.
Dell Latitude E7240
The first model will be available with a choice of a 1366 x 768 pixel display or a 1920 x 1080 pixel touchscreen. It measures 12.2″ x 8.3″ x 0.79″ and weighs about 2.9 pounds with a 3-cell battery.
Dell will offer the Latitude E7240 with a choice of Intel Core i3, Core i5, or Core i7 chips — all of which will be “Haswell,” or 4th-generation Intel Core chips.
The notebook will ship with 4GB Of RAM and a choice of 128GB or 256GB of solid state storage.
Business-oriented features include Intel vPro security and mobile broadband options. The battery is also user-replaceable and Dell will offer 3 or 4 cell battery options.
Dell Latitude E7440
This model’s a bit thicker and heavier, and it has a larger display. The notebook has a 14 inch display that will be available with a choice of 1366 x 768 pixel or 1920 x 1080 pixel panels. A touchscreen is also optional.
Like the 12.5 inch model, the Latitude E7440 will be available with Core i3 through i& processors and comes with 4GB of RAM. It can be configured with a solid state disk or a hybrid drive with up to 500GB of hard drive space.
The notebook measures 13.3″ x 9.1″ x 0.83″ and weighs about 3.5 pounds with a 3 cell battery. Dell will also offer an optional 4-cell battery.
It has the same business-oriented features as the smaller model, including a removable battery and optional mobile broadband.
Both laptops are expected to launch this summer.
