Dell's new wirelessly charging 2-in-1 laptop, the Latitude 7285, has officially touched down in Canada starting at $1,449 CAD. This August, Dell will launch a new addition to this very popular design - the Latitude 7000 13-inch 2-in-1 (7389) - that will deliver all of the fantastic capabilities of the 5289 but feature a larger, 13-inch display.
Dell has given the world its first wireless-charging laptop.
Now, the Dell Latitude 7285 laptop is on sale with a price of $1,199. Together, the wireless charging keyboard and mat cost a staggering $549. An additional keyboard dock will double up as the wireless charging dock for the laptop when it's time to give some juice to the device. On Tuesday, Dell announced two new devices, the Dell Latitude 7000 12-inch detachable 2-in-1, also known as the Dell Latitude 7285, and the Dell Latitude 5000 12-inch convertible 2-in-1.
Dell's Latitude 7285 2 -in-1 laptop is available with an Intel Core i5-7Y54 processor, an Intel Core i5-7Y57 one, or an Intel Core i7-7Y75 processor. You could also opt for the less expensive Productivity Keyboard for $250, but it does not have the wireless charging technology. There is provision of a detachable keyboard which the company claims to be amongst the thinnest, lightest and smallest commercial 2-in-1. And it has some downsides: one, it can't be charged beforehand, and two, you can't use it on a metal surface.
The Latitude 7285 can now be ordered directly from Dell at a starting price of $1449.00. Namely, a fast and furious Intel Core i5 "Kaby Lake" processor, super-sharp 2880 x 1920 anti-glare display from, well, Sharp and 8GB RAM paired with 128GB solid state storage.
The Latitude 7285 is a 2-in-1 for a good reason: All the core components are crammed into the tablet behind the display. Users will get storage options as high as 512GB SSD storage along with a microSD card that can be used for extra expansion.
Watertown-based wireless power company WiTricity Corp. has teamed up with Dell Inc.to introduce a tablet/notebook computer that doesn't need a power adapter.
