Latitude Z Details
Dell lattitude z notebook with wireless charging standYou may remember we reported that Dell were planning the world's first laptop to charge wirelessly, a few weeks ago. Well, today, Dell have officially launched the laptop and aimed at the business market, it certainly is feature packed. The Latitude Z's most eye catching feature has to be it's wireless charging feature. It uses it's wireless dock to charge the laptop using induction. It also packs in features such as touch screen, document scanner and something Dell call EdgeTouch, a feature which allows users to interact with certain applications using a touch element on the screen's bezel.
There is also face recognition technology which locks out the user if it's doesn't recognise it, and Latitude ON, which is a sub-processor and operating system that allows instant access to the internet. Steve Lalla, the VP and GM of the business client product group at Dell says "Dell is introducing ground-breaking innovations that mark many industry firsts, we're delivering robust solutions to solve real customer needs. We are committed to our core business and expanding our product line to meet the needs of our customers when they are ready to refresh or add to their existing infrastructure."
Dell lattitude z notebook just 20mm thinThe Latitude Z isn't cheap, at £1319 for the 'basic' model. It rises quite a lot if you add in additional features or faster hardware. The basic specifications are an Intel Core 2 Duo SU9400 1.4GHz and 2GB of 1066Mhz DDR3 memory, although it is possible to upgrade to a slightly faster 1.6GHz SU9600 with 4GB of 1066Mhz DDR3 memory. The notebook runs from the Mobile Intel GS45 Express chipset, with onboard Intel GMA 4500MHD graphics, powering a 1600 x 900 16" WLED display. There are then numerous solid state drive configurations, ranging from 64GB to 128GB and a plethora of extra security options to suit every user, although be prepared to take a rather large hit to the wallet! For more information and specifications then visit the Dell website.
How Dell have managed to cram all of these features into something that is just 20mm thin and weighs only 2kg is beyond me. It is nice to see innovation in the market in which products are very similar, although it is a bit of a let down that the wireless charging dock is not included in the price, £159 extra!
