Dell has pulled the wraps off a new notebook computer called the Latitude 3330. This notebook is specifically designed to be an affordable, manageable, and secure solution for schools and small business users. Dell says the machine is appropriate for both educational use in the classroom and productivity for business users.
The machine features an anodized aluminum lid behind the display for good looks and a solid feel. The machine is 21 mm thick and weighs in at 3.43 pounds making it easy to carry from class to class and between office and home. Swappable battery options promise 10 hours of battery life for all day use.
The machine is also Energy Star 5.2 compliant and EPEAT registered. Dell says that the new machine builds on its previous success with the Latitude 2120 notebook computer. The 3330 notebook is available with a variety of processors including Core i3, i5, and Celeron parts.
The notebook has a 13.3-inch anti-glare LCD with the native resolution of 1366 x 768. The notebook also has an integrated microphone and HD resolution web cam. Storage options for the machine vary, but Dell says that storage will be in the form of high-performance SSHDs offering large storage capacity and fast boot time. Connectivity options include VGA output, HDMI, dual USB 3.0 ports, and an optional USB dock is available. The 3330 will launch in late April starting at $419.
