Dell’s Latitude line of laptops are designed for use in business and enterprise, but like Lenovo’s ThinkPad laptops, they also might appeal to folks looking for a home computer with a no-nonsense design (they come in a choice of black).

This week Dell announced it’s updating its Latitude family with new models featuring 5th-gen Intel Core vPro processors.

Here’s a run-down of some of the new models:

Dell says all of its Latitude notebooks and 2-in-1s (including the 13 inch 7000 Series model with a Core M chip which launched late last year) have sturdy materials and have been designed to withstand military grade bump and drop tests.

The laptops are available with a range of options including Celeron through Core i7 chips, HD or full HD displays, touchscreens, hard drives, and solid state storage. They also have enterprise-level security features including TPM modules, fingerprint readers, and smart card readers, among other things.

For the most part the higher the model number, the more expensive the system, with 3000 Series laptops selling for lower prices than the 5000 Series which, in turn, are cheaper than the 7000 Series models.

  1. I like Dell laptops, but why are they priced higher than every other laptop? That’s why I’m using a $200 Samsung Chromebook right now instead of an $800 Dell XPS 13.

    1. That’s around the price you’d pay for a laptop like the xps 13 from other manufacturers.

  2. Battery life on these models? After seeing the magic Dell worked with the XPS 13 (15 hours!!!), I’m intrigued by whatever Dell is doing with the rest of its lineup.
