Drive Control Corporation, (DCC) official Dell EMC distributor, has announced the new Dell Latitude 7400 2-in-1 computer. DCC claims that this new computer is “the world’s smallest commercial 14-inch 2-in-1, and the first PC to feature sensor presence technology.”
DCC has said that the Latitude 7400 2-in-1 is built for connectivity and portability, and it does not compromise on battery life and performance despite its size. The new computer comes with the latest Intel 8th Generation leading up to the i7 4-Core processors. The battery life is said to last up to 24 hours on a single charge. The battery can also be charged up to 80 per cent with Dell’s ExpressCharge technology.
The Dell Latitude 7400 2-in-1 features a drop-hinge design that aims to create a seamless viewing experience with a 4-sided narrow border FHD display. The computer weighs 1.3kgs and is made from machined aluminium with diamond-cut edges, and is available with a Titan grey finish. DCC has also said that it will be the first computer in the Latitude range to feature Dell’s ocean-bound plastics packaging.
The Latitude 7400 2-in-1 comes with Dell’s ExpressSign-in. This is a sensor that will detect a user’s presence and then automatically turn the system on. Users will be able to log in using this feature, as well as the computer’s IR camera and Windows Hello. ExpressSign-in will detect when a user leaves the computer and will then lock the PC in order to safeguard the user’s data. “the Dell ExpressSign-in feature is undoubtedly a gamechanger; not only is it extremely intuitive but also ensures that when the PC is unattended no one will be able to grab a quick peek before the screen switches off – it takes data protection to the next secure level,” said George Lodewick, Dell EMC Com Desktop and Notebook Specialist at DCC.
The 7400 2-in-1 was created, according to DCC, to take advantage of fast mobile broadband speed in order to connect users around the globe. The computer’s Dell Super Low Power Panel and ExpressCharge will allow users to charge their devices at a faster rate. The system will also be kept cool by the computer’s thermal responsiveness.
The Latitude 7400 2-in-1 will come standard with Dell Client Command Suite and VMware Workspace ONE integration, which aims to allow users to manage Windows 10 endpoints from one console. Dell SafeID features an optional fingerprint reader on the power button to further protect users’ data. Dell’s vPro extensions, according to DCC, will remotely manage and run diagnostics on several devices, despite them being on or off.
