Dell’s newest laptop for schools and businesses is a relatively thin and light notebook with a 13 inch display and a low starting price.
The Dell Latitude 3330 isn’t an ultrabook, because it’s a tad t0o thick. But measuring 0.8 inches thick and weighing 3.4 pounds, the Latitude 3330 looks a lot like an ultrabook. It’s just cheaper, with a starting price of about $419.
The notebook features a 13 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display, will be available with an Intel Celeron, Core i3, or Core i5 processor.
Dell will offer models with Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 8, or Ubuntu Linux, and the notebook appears to come with hard drive and solid state drive options.
Unlike most ultraportable notebooks on the market right now, the Latitude 3330 will have user-replaceable batteries, and Dell says you should be able to get up to 10 hours of battery life from the notebook.
It has VGA and HDMI ports, and 2 USB 3.0 ports as well as as optional USB docking station.
The Dell Latitude 3330 should be available later this month.
hell yeah, a cheap, fairly good specced computer running linux
Is it really coming with Windows XP when this will be unsupported from April 2014?
You sure this is not a Vostro? Seems pretty cheap for a Latitude.
Well Dell’s the one calling it a Latitude. I don’t know what’s the difference between a Vostro and a Latitude but I bet this one doors at the borderline.
Dell dialed it in on this one. Never thought I’d buy a Dell, but this is spec’d perfectly.
Hmmm… Could do with a larger screen resolution – but at the price it’s really hard to say no.
I’ve always avoided Dell because of their reputation for terribly shoddy laptops (this is mostly the consumer range, not business range) but I recently got an old Latitude and put more RAM and a SSD in it. So far it has been the nicest laptop I’ve ever had, and it seems solid enough to get another year out of it.
Something like this makes me want to actually buy a new one.
Glad to hear that Dell isn’t ditching Linux with the going private situation.
How much do Latitudes usually go for? Seems pretty cheap for their business rugged line unless it’s not as durable as the other Latitudes.
