The company announced the all new thinnest Business class Latitude 13 7370 Ultrabook and the Latitude 12 7275 2-in-1 detachable Notebook. The Latitude 13 7370 ultrabook features a 13-inch screen for a perfect fit for the on-the-go worker. The laptop is built using layers of unidirectional 40-ton carbon fiber, the same materials used in applications like spacecraft and aerospace. The laptop also features Dell’s InfinityEdge display, which features a really small bezel around the screen that creates an enjoyable experience when using the laptop.

It also includes Thunderbolt™ 3 for 8x faster data transfer than USB 3.0 allowing end users to power two 4K displays simultaneously. The laptop offers extended battery life and offers advanced security features including a fingerprint scanner and encryption software.

The Latitude 12, the 2-in-1 detachable notebook that you can make your tablet as well for an on-the-go experience features a 12.5-inch touch screen. The best part about this notebook is that it does not feature clumsy locks and latches for releasing or attaching the screen to the keyboard. It is based on a new magnetic system that allows for easy portability and usage. The notebook comes with two keyboard options, the Slim Keyboard or the Premium Keyboard. The Slim Keyboard is full-sized, lightweight, well-spaced with backlit chiclet keys for effortless typing, whereas the Premium Keyboard single-handedly connects to the tablet, and features backlit keys and mouse cursor control with a high precision, gesture touchpad.
