Keep in mind that prices will vary greatly depending on the configuration options, but there are a lot of configuration options, which makes sense since Dell’s Latitude line of computers are aimed at corporate users who may have very specific needs.

The company also likes to point out that these laptops have serviceable batteries, but that’s not the same as old-school user replaceable batteries that could be popped in and out without removing any screws. You do need to open the case to replace a battery, but at least that’s something Dell allows you to do.

Another somewhat unusual feature: while these laptops may not have convertible tablet-style designs with 360-degree hinges, they do have 180 degree hinges that let you fold the screens flat, which could come in handy if you’re standing over a PC and looking down at it.

The company will also offer both the Latitude 5491 and Latitude 5591 with a choice of Windows 10 Pro, Windows 10 Home, or Ubuntu Linux.
