Dell, the big-time tech giant, plans to launch a business laptop so outstanding, that it will make Microsoft’s Surface Pro look like a bike with training wheels. The company announced its Latitude 7285 2-in-1 business laptop during this year’s CES.
What does Dell’s 2-in-1 business laptop have that makes everyone talk about it? Well, let’s start with the specs and work our way up to premium features. Unfortunately, there isn’t much we can tell you about the device’s technical specifications since the company decided to keep it a secret until the device hits the market.
However, we do know that the Dell Latitude will be VR-ready, meaning that it will probably be compatible with all VR sets available on the market. The device will feature a 32-inch display, which can display images in Ultra HD 8k.
Processor-wise, the Latitude 2-in-1 will probably be outfitted with an Intel Core i7 processor, and GeForce GTX 100 GPU. Unfortunately, we don’t have any reliable information regarding storage capabilities or RAM, but judging by the fact that it’s VR-ready, it would need at least 16 GB.
We also know that the laptop comes with a 360-degrees hinge system, which allows the user to rotate the screen at will. Although it was designed to be a business system, the Dell Latitude 7285 can very well be used to play just about any game available on the market, Steam VR section included.
And now for the coup de grace. According to its maker, the Latitude 7285 will be among the first laptops on the market to rely on wireless charging. Yes, you read that right. With this laptop, you won’t need to worry about long cables and bulky chargers. However, there is one caveat – it’s not really wireless charging.
So, this is how it works. The company used super small components in order to construct this laptop. This means that all the major components like processor, RAM, SSD, and GPU are housed inside its 32-inch screen.
With the top detachable, basically you have a performant tablet and an interchangeable keyboard. Now, the keyboard is always attached to a power cable. But when you attach the laptop to the keyboard, the electric current practically bypasses the keyboard and goes into the laptop. It’s not actually wireless charging, but at least it’s a good step in the right direction.
