Aimed at education and small businesses who need a secure yet affordable laptop, Dell launched the Latitude 3330, a 13-inch notebook ultraportable that starts at just $419.
Sharing some aesthetic traits with last year’s Vostro line, the Latitude 3330 has an anodized aluminum lid and body and weighs 3.4 pounds. The notebook, which has a 13.3-inch, 1366 x 768-pixel display, measures 13 x 9.4 x 0.8 inches.
One of the education-centric features of the Latitude 3330 is the Mobile Cart solution, which allows teachers to dock up to 30 notebooks in a special cart that recharges them, and lets IT departments perform maintenance on all of them at once. Security measures include Dell Data Protection, Bitlocker or Trusted Platform Module.
The Latitude 3330 will start at $419; for that, consumers get an Intel Celeron 1007U processor, 2GB of RAM and a 320GB, 5,400-rpm hard drive. Other configurations will include Intel Core i3 and i5 CPUs, up to 8GB of RAM, a 500GB hybrid drive and a 128GB SSD. The notebook can also be configured with a 4- or 6-cell battery.
Ports include two USB 3.0, one USB 2.0, Ethernet, VGA, HDMI, a card reader, Kensington lock slot and a 3.5mm combo headphone/mic jack.
The Dell Latitude 3330 will be available at the end of April.
