Dell have been in and around the laptop game for long enough now to know exactly what it is the fans want out of their device. Much like every other brand, they’ve made mistakes over the years – but they continue to learn, innovate and release better products year on year. They’ll be kicking off 2020 with a refresh to the Latitude range;

Dell Latitude 9510

The Dell business range, Latitude have been a staple since their inception over ten years ago. The latest in this lineup, the Latitude 9510. It’s a 2-in-1, 15″ device that is being pitched for the professional on the go (please refer to the ‘Premium Active Pen’ pictured).

Dell are excited about its incredible lightweight, 30-hour battery life and some choice upgrades to the ‘Dell Optimizer’ software.

The Optimizer is a great bit of software that comes pre-installed on their laptops to do exactly as it’s name would suggest – optimize. The team at Dell are boasting some upgrades the memory (RAM) handling processes that should keep the next generation of Latitude running at peak performance for longer. This alongside changes to battery handling that should see the device pick up a 35% charge in only 20 minutes.

It’s also worth noting that the Latitude 9510 will come shipped with a 5G antenna to ensure that its future proofed.

Dell XPS 13

There hasn’t been a conversation about laptops in the last two years that I haven’t mentioned the Dell XPS range. For one very simple reason, they’re incredible quality. It looks like I’ll be carrying that mantra into 2020 as well with the announcement of the all new XPS 13.

First thing’s first, they’ve thinned it again. How? I’m not sure… probably magic because these bezels are incredibly slim and the device already so light. It’s a 13.4-inch display in an 11-inch form factor.

They’re shipping with 10th-gen Intel CPU’s as well as boasting both a larger touchpad and edge-to-edge keyboard.

The last of their laptop announcements thus far is a change to Dell Mobile Connect. The software is used to access your phone straight from your laptop – including content sharing and direct app control. 2020 will see the inclusion of iOS in this bit of kit that’s previously only been compatible with Android.

While you’re pretending to send important emails you can actually be monitoring the exact location of your UberEats driver.

There’s plenty more to come from Dell and a whole lot more to come out of CES 2020 – stay tuned for it all right here at
