Dell has unveiled three new products for a workforce it says is ‘evolving’, which really means ‘migrating to Windows 8’. To help Microsoft’s new platform along the way, Dell is introducing its first enterprise-class ultrabook, a new all-in-one desktop PC, plus a 10-inch tablet.

Latitude 10

Starting with the smallest of the bunch, the Latitude 10 is a tablet specifically aimed at the business user, focusing on productivity and security. Optimised for the Windows 8 touch interface, the Latitude 10 comes with Dell Data Protection|Encryption, which encrypts all data from the hard drive to the USB port, plus a fingerprint reader and smart card reader for effective two-factor authentication. It also features a removable battery, which will be useful for added power and repairability.

Latitude 6430u

Moving on, the Latitude 6430u 14-inch ultrabook is 33pc slimmer and 16pc lighter than the current-generation 14-inch Latitude. It’s also durable, having stood up to military-standard testing, and battery testing gives it all-day productivity from a single charge.

Data protection is again at the heart of Dell’s business devices, and this laptop also comes with Dell Data Protection|Encryption, plus Intel vPro Technology for manageability.

OptiPlex 9010 All-in-One

Finally, the OptiPlex 9010 All-in-One desktop PC incorporates touch interface for Windows 8 with a multi-point touchscreen. It also comes with a fixed or rotating camera, and an articulated stand.
