With the Ultrabook craze already catching on, it’s no surprise that Dell has unveiled yet another Ultrabook device that they can add to their portfolio. Known as the Latitude 6430u, this is a pretty sleek looking Ultrabook that has been designed for the business user in mind, and as such has been built not just to be mobile, but also to withstand certain harsh elements and abuse up to a certain extent, along with a host of other security features that will hopefully appeal to the enterprise user who might need to bring sensitive data with them on the go.
Featuring a 14” 1366×768 display, the Latitude 6430u is reportedly both 33% slimmer and 16% lighter than Dell’s current Latitude laptop which should make traveling with it less of a burden. It will be powered by Intel’s Ivy Bridge processor with the option of choosing between the i3, i5 or i7 models. It will offer configurations where it can support up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of SSD storage and will, of course, run on Windows 8.
It also sports a pretty amazing battery where according to Dell, it should give you a whole day’s worth of productivity on a single charge. Of course that will vary depending on what you do – for example if you were to watch 1080p Full HD videos all day we expect it not to last you very long. As far as pricing and availability goes, the Dell Latitude 6430u will be released with the launch of Windows 8 although pricing has yet to be determined.
