Dell already released new versions of their Latitude 3000 and 5000 series business notebooks that are lighter and thinner before. On top of that, they are also releasing a 12-inch version of their Latitude 5000 laptop. It will go on sale starting September 25th. The idea behind it is to steal some of the business from Lenovo who has a similar laptop that is around the same size.
The key difference between the Lenovo ThinkPad X240 and the Dell Latitude 12 5000 is the fact that the Dell doesn't have a trackpoint in the middle of the keyboard. Some people prefer the trackpoint, and other people think that it just gets in the way and prefer to not have it at all. The trackpoint will be on the 14-inch and 17-inch latitude models though. It also has a nice comfortable backlit keyboard.
The Latitude 12 comes with a smart card reader located on the left side and a USB, mini Display Port and an SD card reader located on the right. There is a connector on the bottom of the laptop so that you can hook it up to a Dell dock. This will give you even more ports to choose from. It also has an optional fingerprint reader for security.
Along with the new Latitude 12, there have already been updates to the regular Latitude 3000 and 5000 series laptops as stated before. They are thinner, lighter, and even more durable. The new business-minded laptops now have a spill resistant keyboard, so you don't have to freak out when you spill your coffee on it by accident during a hectic work day. They also feature optional keyboard back lighting and security options like Dell Data Protection's Security Tools, Protected Workspace, and Encryption.
Although these newly updated laptops are going to go on sale this month, it may be a kind of bad time to buy them. Not that they aren't worth it, but right now they feature a 4th generation Intel Core i3 or i5 processor, 4GB of ram, Intel HD Graphics 4400 or Nvidia GeForce 830M GPUs, a 1366 x 768 display and a 500GB hard drive. That is all well and good, but in January of next year they are going to get upgraded even more. At that point they will be featuring 5th generation Intel Celeron and Core i3/i5/i5 CPUs, up to 16GB of RAM, Intel HD Graphics 5500, a 1080p display and a 1TB hard drive.
The computers are already going to be fine, but if you can hold off just a few extra months, you will be able to get a way better version for about the same exact amount of money. Who wouldn't do that? Anyone who does purchase one this month and doesn't know about the coming upgrades is probably going to be very upset when they find out in January.
