Dell’s notebook game is getting an upgrade and one that is going to be well appreciated with the masses. With the introduction of the new Dell Latitude 7285 2-in-1 notebook, it will be the first notebook to feature wireless charging technology.
The most interesting aspect about the notebook, which is the wireless charging technology, is made possible thanks to WiTricity’s magnetic resonance technology. This allows the device to be charged wirelessly and through different materials as well. It also does not require the device to be perfectly aligned with the charging mat for it to work, making working on the laptop a dream come true, especially for power users. The notebook has its own docking system that makes for a truly wireless workplace experience.
As for the notebook itself, the new Dell Latitude 7285 features 7th generation Kaby Lake processors up to a Core i7-7Y75 and either 8GB or 16GB of RAM. Users will get storage options as high as 512GB SSD storage along with a microSD card that can be used for extra expansion.
The laptop comes with an IGZO display that is 12-inches and comes at a resolution of 2880×1920. It also has Windows Hello as well as a built-in IR camera for better recognition and security. As far as charging goes, the laptop simply needs to be placed on the charging and the charging will take care of itself. Being a 2-in-1, the laptop does feature a detachable keyboard for extra portability and efficiency.
Users will have the option to opt for a standard detachable keyboard or a wireless charging keyboard when they make the purchase of the product. Dell will charge $1,200 for the tablet itself, while the keyboards and charging mats cost extra. In terms of ports and connectivity, the laptop will feature two Thunderbolt 3/USB Type-C ports as well as an option for support of Dell’s Active Pen.
With the charging keyboard and the mat, users will have to shell out $550 extra apart from the tablet itself. While the notebook’s performance may not be all that amazing, the novelty of the wireless charging is what will attract users to buy the notebook, which will involve having to shell out those extra Dollars as well.
Charging laptops and notebooks will never be the same again, thanks to Dell’s new WiTricity tech. Hopefully, the trend should catch on to more manufacturers and models soon
