Dell has used CES 2020 to launch the world’s lightest business laptop—the Latitude 9510. It weighs just 3.2 pounds and is only 17mm thick.
It will be available in two models—a 15-inch convertible model and a 15.6-inch standard laptop version. The standard version has a FullHD display.
The Latitude’s headline-grabbing feature is the all-new Dell Optimizer software. It’s an AI tool that reduces lags and delays to improve performance.
Dell Optimizer has four key features:
- ExpressResponse: Uses machine learning to launch your most frequently used apps even faster.
- ExpressCharge: The AI learns about your charging habits and power usage patterns to improve battery life.
- Express Sign-in: Relies on an Intel-powered proximity sensor and Windows Hello to allow for a speedier sign-in process.
- Intelligent Audio: Can eliminate echo and background noise in real-time to improve the quality of conference calls.
As you’d expect, the laptop also boasts some powerful specs. You’ll get 16GB of RAM and 1TB of SSD storage. You can also benefit from 5G mobile broadband capabilities (thanks to Qualcomm’s Snapdragon X20 LTE-A modem), a 10th-gen Intel i7 processor, and support for Wi-Fi 6 Gig+.
Ports-wise, the new Dell Latitude has one USB 3.1 connector, two Thunderbolt 3 sockets, a memory card reader, and an HDMI port.
Dell claims that the battery will last for 30 hours, but we have no way to verify those claims from the show floor. Of course, the longevity of the battery will ultimately depend on the types of tasks you are performing.
Lastly, a nod to the laptop’s overall design. This is a seriously sexy piece of kit. The chassis is machined-aluminum, there are diamond-cut edges and almost non-existent screen bezels.
The price of the machine is yet to be confirmed. It goes on sale globally in March 2020.
