Dell has announced a new portfolio of laptop and tablets. The devices clearly lie in the mid and starter range categories.
Dell Latitude 11 Education
The highlight of this reveal is the Dell Latitude 11 Education (3160) which comes with an 11″ display with 1,366 x 768 resolution. The display comes with an optional touchscreen and a 180-degree rotating hinge. There’s also an LED light at the top to indicate a number of notifications or signals.
The version running is either Windows 7 or 8.1. Underneath, you get an unspecified Intel Celeron M processor with 4 GB RAM and a 64 GB SSD (or a 250 GB hard drive). You also get Gigabit Ethernet port, Wi-Fi ac, Bluetooth 4.0, HDMI and USB 3.0 for connectivity.
The price of this laptop is $299, but it will increase with added options. There’s also a Chromebook version of the same laptop with virtually the same hardware starting at $249.
Dell Venue 10 and 10 Pro
Dell also announced a couple of budget tablets. As far as differences go, the Venue 10 will run on Android while the 10 Pro will come with Windows 8.1. Both are running the same platform which is Intel Core M.
They also come with WACOM-digitizer technology and a keyboard accessory which can also provide a tent-mode orientation. The display size is set at 10″, which will come with 1280 x 800 resolution, though there will be a 1080p option available as well.
There is a choice of two Core M processors for the Venue 10 Pro, Core 5Y10c and 5Y71c running at either 2.0 or 2.9 Ghz. That’s accompanied by 2 GB worth RAM as well as a choice of 64, 128 or 256 GB worth storage. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi ac, full-size USB 3.0, microSD, optional LTE and Bluetooth 4.0. There is a duo of 5 and 1.2 mp cameras on the back and front to be found. A 38 Wh battery powers it up.
There is also a notification LED at the back. Prices will start at $329 for the Venue 10 Pro, or $379 with the keyboard accessory. The price of the stylus is $32.95.
