Bernard Perez flaunts 13in machine with InfinityEdge display.
The Dell XPS 13 has to be one of the most attractive 13in Ultrabooks on the market, so it's no surprise that a lot of what's good about the consumer machine is being carried over to a new business variant dubbed the Latitude 13 7370.
This upcoming machine, scheduled for release next month with prices starting from $1,300, borrows the XPS 13's lush InfinityEdge display and claims to be "the world's smallest 13in, business-class Ultrabook."
Latitude 13 7370 is said to have been built using layers of unidirectional carbon fibre, allowing for a high-quality build, a 0.56in-thick profile and a total weight of just over 1kg. The all-black, nearly bezel-less design is eye catching to say the least, and with businesses in mind Dell will offer an array of security features. These will include smartcard readers, fingerprint sensors, RFID support and encryption software.
On the inside, the 7370 will offer a choice of Intel Core m3, m5 or m7 CPUs, with Dell opting against the most powerful Core i3, i5 and i7 options in this first instance. One potential advantage is that the new 13in Latitude should be practically silent during use, and the choice of processor also bodes well for battery life.
Display choices will include a standard 1,920x1,080 panel or an optional 3,200x1,800, and connectivity should be plentiful with Dell incorporating micro-HDMI, an SD card reader, USB 3.0 and a pair of USB Type-C.
