Even as it hops over, or pushes through, all the hurdles in the path of going private, Dell continues to do its job as world-class provider of computers and other consumer electronics devices.
Case in point, the company is developing more notebooks for the Latitude series, two of which are expected to debut during the summer.
However, they aren't normal notebooks, but models thin and light enough to earn the ultrabook moniker. They are called Dell Latitude E7440 and Dell Latitude E7240.
The former is the larger of the two, with a screen size of 14 inches. Not the largest in the world, but then again it isn't trying to be.
The screen can have either 1266 x 768 pixels resolution (HD) or 1920 x 1080 pixels (Full HD).
As for the insides, they revolve around an Intel Core-series Haswell CPU. 4 GB of DDR3 RAM back it up, and storage space is provided by an SSD (solid state drive, 128 GB / 256 GB) or an HDD (hard disk drive, 320 GB / 500 GB).
Power is supplied by a 3-cell battery, although a 4-cell battery can be used instead, for some extra cash.
The other ultrabook, Latitude E7240, has a screen of 12.2 inches which, again, can be an HD or Full HD panel.
As before, a Core i3, Core i5, or Core i7 CPU drives everything, with 4 GB of RAM helping. Storage options don't extend to HDDs though, only to 128 GB or 256 GB SSDs. The battery options persist, on the other hand.
Sadly, when the company let this information slip through Tech2.hu, it did not include the prices of either ultrabook. Given the hardware, we are willing to risk rooting for something in the vicinity of $700 / 700 EUR, although Intel's new chips might make it hard for the mark to be attained, even at these laptop sizes.
