Smaller and lighter: We shrunk the dimensions of the Latitude 5000 series without sacrificing power or performance.

Our most powerful Latitude: 11th Generation Intel® Core H-series processors, up to i7 vPro 8-core, offer businesses the performance, manageability, built-in security features and stability of the Intel® vPro Platform, the platform built for business.

Connect confidently: Stay connected with up to 450 Mbps LTE mobile broadband speeds and optional Intel® Wi-Fi 6E design allows seven additional channels (in 6GHz band) for more bandwidth, which provides faster, smoother Wi-Fi, especially in high-density areas.

Travel with ease: eSIM technology can connect to more global carriers without having to switch SIM cards.*

Scale to your needs: There’s nothing holding you back from your best work with scalable memory and storage, including the highest memory of all Latitudes, up to 64GB DDR4 3200MHz memory with Intel® Optane™ and up to 4TB of storage.

Ports for any purpose: Quickly connect to peripherals with a full range of available ports, including 2x Type-C™ Thunderbolt™ 4* and legacy ports like HDMI and RJ45.

Stay cool: Dell’s unique Dual Opposite Outlet fans provide revolutionary cooling in a compact size. Side venting increases efficiency and maximizes airflow to improve system response time, battery life and quietness. Additionally, IT can manage thermals within the BIOS, which saves on storage size and allows IT to focus on other critical software.

Our commitment to sustainability

Our commitment to sustainability

Our most sustainable Latitude: The Latitude 5000 Series use 21% bioplastics from trees within the lid by utilizing Tall Oil from the papermaking process. The overall manufacturing process creates a lower carbon, energy and water footprint, reducing CO2 emissions equal to 24.2 million miles driven, saving energy to power 5,564 homes for a year, and conserving enough water to fill 226 Olympic-size pools.*
