The hits keep on happening at CES 2019 in Las Vegas. Yesterday it was Dell’s turn. Here are new PCs the company unveiled or updated:
Latitude 7400 2-in-1
This new 14-inch 2-in-1 offers two innovative features: a proximity sensor and ultra-long battery life.
The proximity sensor, powered by Intel Context Sensing Technology, “knows” when the user is close by. When it detects the user’s presence, the sensor wakes the system, then scans for a facial-recognition login with Windows Hello. And when the user steps away from the system, the sensor locks the system, improving both battery life and security.
Dell Latitude 7400 2-in-1: 24 hours of power
Speaking of battery life, Dell says the new Latitude can run on a single charge for up to 24 full hours. And if that’s not long enough, Express Charge technology means you can get an 80% charge in just one hour.
There’s also a variable-torque hinge that makes the system easy to open. Nice.
The Dell Latitude 7400 2-in-1 is set to ship in March. Retail prices will start at about $1,600.
Inspiron 7000 2-in-1
Dell has added two new models to this line, one with a 13-inch display, the other with 15 inches.
Also new is a keyboard that incorporates the power button, fingerprint reader and number keypad.
Another feature, Adaptive Thermal technology, adjusts the system’s performance based on how it’s being used. For example, if the system is just streaming a movie, it powers low, generating relatively little heat. And if it’s on a desktop being given a thorough workout, it powers high.
Like the older members of the family, the newbies run on 8th Gen Intel Core processors.
Shipments are set for mid-year, Dell says. Prices weren’t announced.
Dell has updated this 13-inch notebook with a top-mounted webcam and “frost” finish option.
It’s also the first Dell notebook to support Dolby Vision. That delivers vivid colors, bright highlights and dark blacks.

The line continues with 8th Gen Intel Core processors - i3 to i7 - and the user’s choice of Windows 10 - either Home or Pro.
Shipments of the updated Dell XPS 13 are set to begin next month, with retail prices starting at about $900.
OLED displays coming
Displays using OLED — short for Organic Light-Emitting Diodes — have self-lighting pixels that can switch off and on independently. That provides superior contrast between dark and light colors.
Starting in March, Dell will offer OLED displays for the following of its devices: XPS 15 notebook, Alienware m15 gaming notebook, and G7 15 gaming laptop.
In April Dell will also offer 240Hz panels for its Alienware m15 notebook, providing faster response times that your gaming customers should appreciate.
