Hey Mr. Laptop, Welcome to the Wireless Party - Introducing the Dell Latitude 7285

By Patrick Moore on Jul 28, 2017 9:53:10 AM

Product Review: Dell Latitude 7285

Dell is making history with the announcement of the world's first wireless charging 2-in-1 laptop. Can we say game changer? Along with being the thinnest and lightest system that Dell has ever introduced, the Latitude 7000 series is adding wireless charging into the fold with an attachable keyboard that can be used as a wireless charging base.

Traveling for work? Don't waste space in your suitcase with bulky wires. Have a lunch meeting? You can now use your laptop without having to annoy wait staff by asking for a table near an outlet. The new device definitely makes working on-to-go much easier, but before you run out the door to grab one of these bad boys, let's take a step back and breakdown the good and not-so-good features of the hottest new laptop on the block. 

Superb User Experience 

It is clear Dell has put effort into creating a superior user experience and with the new 7000 series, it seems to have paid off. In addition to the ability to charge wirelessly, the laptop has some other key features that make working on-the-go a breeze. Some of our favorite features include:

  • Optimized displays that reduce power consumption
  • Extended battery life 
  • Removable hard drives for data security
  • Infrared camera for video conferences 
  • Use of lightweight carbon fiber materials for durability 
  • Four modes: tent, laptop, slate and tablet 

Dell's 2-in-1 notebook sales have been steadily increasing over the past year and we expect this trend to continue with the introduction of this series.
