Dell says that its most recent release of Latitude notebooks has received an AI boost with Intel's Meteor Lake ( that comes with a neural processing unit) processor, and a dedicated Copilot button to access Microsoft’s AI assistant over Windows 11.

The fully refreshed portfolio features updates across the 3000 and 5000 series, whereas the 7000 and 9000 series have new features and devices.

Dell’s new Latitude 7000 series of devices come powered by Intel Core Ultra processors with Intel vPro  and a new integrated multi-processor package with a central processing unit (CPU), graphics processing unit (GPU), and an Intel Meteor Lake-enabled neural processing unit (NPU). Intel says that its Core Ultra processors will support more than 100 optimised AI Apps and over 300 AI-optimised experiences, from collaboration tools and personal assistance to strengthened security.

However, depending on the application and/or use case, the AI workload can offloaded or distributed across the CPU, GPU and now the NPU. These AI workloads, when offloaded to the xPU (CPU, GPU, or NPU), improve overall device performance, and extend battery life. For example, Dell says that running a three-hour Teams call on a Latitude with an NPU, a user will get an additional 23 minutes of battery runtime.

For mobile professionals looking for a premium experience, the new Latitude 7000 series, offers options of 13-inch, 14-inch, and 16-inch screen sizes, plus 2-in-1 form factor options, and 13-inch and 14-inch ultralight models as well.

At just 0.98kg and 1.05kg respectively, the Latitude 7350 and 7450 Ultralight are ideal for those who are constantly on the move. In addition to the new Intel Core Ultra processors, the Latitude Ultralight offerings deliver AI PC performance in an ultra-portable form factor along with a Dell Collaboration Touchpad, 5MP webcams, and top-firing speakers providing clear audio.

The Dell Latitude 7350 Detachable (not to be confused with the Dell Latitude 7350 Ultralight) has the familiar form factor we’ve come to assume with the Microsoft Surface. With an optional detachable keyboard and pen, users can work fully docked at a desk or on-the-go with the tablet.

Dell added that it’s prioritised performance with advanced thermal solutions, including intelligent thermal modes so that the device can run up to 51% faster in laptop mode. The 7350 Detachable includes a pair of high-resolution 8MP cameras with the user-facing camera coming with HDR technology for a high-quality picture no matter the lighting conditions. It also supports Dell's Collaboration Touchpad that supports Microsoft Teams and Zoom with the new NPU of the 7350 Detachable capable of allowing Windows Studio Effects to correct eye gaze, auto-frame the user, and blur their background as we covered here.

In terms of sustainability, this year will see the new generation of Latitude laptops shipping with 50% recycled cobalt in batteries. The Latitude 7350 Detachable will ship with a 90% recycled magnesium chassis and 75% recycled aluminium kickstand as well as upgradeable WWAN and SSD, making serviceability easy and fast.

Dell calls the 14-inch Latitude 9450 2-in-1, “the ultimate in collaboration and connectivity”. It comes with a haptic collaboration touchpad with support for Microsoft Teams and Zoom, a QHD+ Infinity Edge display, top-firing speakers, and a new HDR webcam. It also features a Zero-Lattice Keyboard (developed by Dell) with wide and curved keys for improved tactile response that is backlit using mini-LEDs. In a move to futureproof the Latitude 9450, it comes with Wi-Fi 7 support.
