During the past couple of years, we’ve seen clear evidence that the workplace is evolving. As employees grow increasingly mobile, they need laptops, 2-in-1s and tablets that enable productivity, protect data and deliver industry-leading manageability and reliability no matter where they are. Just as no two businesses are the same, there’s no “one size fits all” approach to mobility. To be truly useful, devices need to be powerful, flexible and secure enough to be effective in any location and in a variety of IT environments.
The needs of the modern mobile worker, the computing experiences they expect, as well as the requirements most organizations have for their IT management are just a few of the factors we take into consideration when developing our solutions. By listening to our customers and keeping business needs as our starting point, we strive to deliver products that truly improve productivity, efficiency and help our customers’ businesses grow.
That’s why today we’re excited to also announce significant updates to our industry-leading Latitude portfolio of business computing solutions. For starters, the all new 5th Generation Intel Core vPro processors are now available across our recently redesigned family of laptops and 2-in-1s – including the Latitude 13 7000 Series 2-in-1, Latitude 7000 Series, Latitude 5000 Series and Latitude 3000 Series.
