2Dell Latitude 13
The Dell Latitude 13 takes styling cues from the Dell Vostro V13, but this ultra-thin unit, at 3.36 pounds, pairs a 13.3-inch screen with ultra-low voltage Intel processors, remote management features, an optional Blu-ray drive, and a long list of connectivity and security options. Dell hasn’t revealed pricing, beyond saying it will be below $1,000.
