Dell recently revealed that it will streamline its laptop naming convention. The company’s upcoming laptop models will be separated into Latitude 3000, 5000 and 7000 lineups. More powerful laptop models are assigned with higher number and Dell is hoping that consumers will find it easier to identify which product they should purchase.
The Latitude 7000 Series pack standard consumer-focused features as well as a number of improved capabilities, such as touchscreen display, backlit keyboard, Corning Gorilla Glass, WiDi and NFC. Despite made out of plastic material, the textures and soft touch finishes should make Latitude 7000 laptops feel and look premium to users. Rated for MIL-STD 810G standards, these laptops also offer rugged durability.
The Latitude 5000 Series should be designated as a mid-range lineup and it will arrive in October. Equipped with 14.1-inch or 15.6-inch display, these laptops are also optionally available with touchscreen panel.
The Latitude 3000 Series is for entry-level models equipped with Haswell processors, 2GB of RAM and 14-inch or 15-inch display. The screen resolution may not reach 1080p, but Dell said that there will be budget models equipped with touchscreen display.
