The Latitude 12 and 14 7000 Series are the world’s most secure Ultrabooks, with best-in-class Dell Data Protection solutions, comprehensive encryption with Dell Data Protection| Encryption and advanced authentication and leading-edge malware prevention with Dell Data Protection | Protected Workspace. With exclusive Intel vPro extensions for remote BIOS management and hard drive wipe even when the systems are powered off, the notebooks are paired with Dell automated tools and utilities for easily deploying, monitoring, and updating systems.

Each Latitude Ultrabook and laptop are crafted using brushed aluminum, reinforced magnesium alloy, strong steel hinges, woven carbon fiber, durable powder-coated underside, spill-resistant keyboards and LCD seals. All Dell touch-enabled displays offer optimal viewing experiences, touch sensitivity, brightness and durability, while the Latitude 7000, 5000, and 3000 Series touch displays offer Corning Gorilla Glass NBT for up to 10 times high scratch resistance compared to soda lime glass, the predominant material used in conventional laptop screens.

Armed with StrikeZone shock absorbers, Fast Response Free-Fall sensors and rubber hard drive isolation, the Latitude family (like its previous three product generations) is put through the MIL-STD 810G third-party durability testing.
