Dell Technologies has announced the latest additions to its business laptop line, including the 13” Latitude 9330 2-in-1 and three workstations: the Precision 7670 is a thin-and-light 16-incher, the Precision 5470 25th Anniversary Edition is an even smaller 14-incher, and the 17” Precision 7770 is the flagship.

Dell Technologies has announced the latest additions to its business laptop line, including the 13” Latitude 9330 2-in-1 and three workstations: the Precision 7670 is a thin-and-light 16-incher, the Precision 5470 25th Anniversary Edition is an even smaller 14-incher, and the 17” Precision 7770 is the flagship.

Pricing hasn’t been announced and neither has availability, though we’re expecting to see these within the next quarter.

Dell Latitude 9330

This 13.3-inch laptop has a 2-in-1 convertible design, with a touch screen that rotates 360 degrees. The screen is 16:10 for more vertical space than a 16:9 screen. The laptop is built around Intel’s Evo platform with up to a 12th generation Core i7 processor. This is one of the first laptops we’ve seen with soldered LPDDR5 memory.

Collaboration is a key theme for the Latitude 9330; its unique touchpad features buttons to quickly access the microphone, camera, screen share, and chat controls. It also has Wi-Fi 6E and 5G options, an FHD webcam with privacy shutter, and a fast-charging feature that provides up to 80% charge in 40 minutes. This Latitude is tough, too; it passes MIL-STD 810H tests.

The Latitude 9330’s basic specifications include:

Processor Up to 12th Generation Core i7 with vPro
Memory Up to 32GB LPDDR5
Graphics Intel Iris Xe Graphics (integrated)
Storage M.2 2230 PCI Express Gen4 x4
Ports 2x Thunderbolt 4, 1x USB-C 3.2 Gen 2, eSIM (WWAN only), Wedge lock slot, audio jack
Dimensions & Weight 11.6” x 0.32~0.55” x 8.2” (WHD), starting at 2.8 pounds
Battery 3-cell 50Whr
Display 2-in-1 13.3” QHD+ (2560×1600), 500 nits, 100% sRGB, Low Blue Light

Dell Precision 7770

The Precision 7770 is Dell’s flagship mobile workstation. It features a 17.3-inch 16:9 screen, up to 16TB of storage (four M.2 Gen4 x4 slots), Independent Software Vendor (ISV) certifications, and up to 64GB of DDR5 memory. Processor options haven’t been announced, but they’ll certainly be Intel “Alder Lake” chips up to a Core i9. Intel is no longer producing entry-level Xeons for mobile workstations, so don’t expect to see those. Many Alder Lake chips support ECC, and Dell’s press release indeed lists ECC memory as an option (up to 128GB).

Graphics options are Nvidia’s refreshed RTX A-series cards up to the 16GB RTX A5500. They can be paired with a 1920×1080 (FHD) or 3840×2160 (UHD) screen; the latter is, interestingly, 120Hz. Both are a bright 500 nits. Wireless options include Wi-Fi 6E and 5G WWAN.
