Dell has taken its ultra-thin business-centric Vostro V13 notebook and tweaked it for suits.
The Latitude 13 is a real “beauty” – says Dell — but one with brains. The machine contains your choice of an Intel CULV Celeron or Core 2 Duo processor, supports “remote manageability” and disk encryption through a Trusted Platform Module chip.
Dell's Latitude 13: good looking?
To jazz the machine up, Dell will allow buyers to swap out the standard hard drive for an SSD - though it didn't say what capacities will be offered An external Blu-ray drive is also available.
The Latitude has 802.11n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. A five-in-one media card reader is installed, Dell added.
The Latitude 13 weighs in at around 1.5kg and will be available to order online within weeks, Dell said. A starting price hasn’t been disclosed, but it's likely to be higher than the £359 V13. ®
