The Latitude 9510 is considered to be the world’s smallest and lightest commercial 15-inch PC4 at only 3.2 pounds. It features a large screen size, Intel Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+) and 5G mobile broadband capabilities.

The new Dell XPS 13 is redesigned with a smaller and thinner profile and a larger display and crafted with machined aluminum, carbon fiber, woven glass fiber, and hardened Corning Gorilla Glass, the XPS 13.

With a larger 16:10 display that spans from all four edges, the new 25% brighter XPS InfinityEdge10 display offers more screen space to multitask. The new design promises to deliver a 13.4-inch display in an 11-inch form factor.

The XPS 13 offers 10th Gen Intel Core processors and long battery life, a larger touchpad, edge-to-edge keyboard, and one-handed opening. The new XPS packaging includes more sustainable materials and eliminates foam, making it easier for customers to recycle. Available options include the traditional XPS 13 with Windows 10 or the Developer Edition featuring Ubuntu 18.04LTS.
