The Dell Latitude 7330 Rugged Extreme is a new rugged ultraportable targeting professionals looking for a mobile laptop with 25-hour battery life and 5G connectivity.
The Dell Latitude 7330 Rugged Extreme is a new ultraportable that still weighs 2.32 Kg and measures 324 x 220 x 36.5 mm. A handle makes it easy to carry.
The reason? Its robust design allowing it to operate in extreme conditions thanks in particular to its compliance with the American military resistance standard MIL-STD-810H but also its IP65 certification ensuring resistance to water, dust and falls up to 180cm in particular.
In addition, to appeal to professionals, it benefits from the advanced TPM 2.0 ControlVault authentication system including integrated encryption keys and the ability to authenticate biometrically by a SmartCard reader (contactless or contactless) or a fingerprint reader.
Nomads are particularly targeted by the Dell Latitude 7330 Rugged Extreme because it offers an advertised battery life of 25 hours with its duo of 3-cell Li-Ion 53.5Whr hot swap batteries supporting ExpressCharge Boost technology allowing a 35% recharge in 20 minutes.
USB-C 65W and 90W adapters are provided.
This new laptop is based on a low-power Intel Tiger Lake Quad Core Core i5-1135G7 (2.4 GHz), Core i5-1145G7 vPro (2.6 GHz) or Core i7-1185G7 vPro (3.0 GHz) processor, all with Intel Iris Xe integrated graphics that we tested.
The Tiger Lake is paired with 8/16/32GB LPDDR4x 4266MHz soldered RAM as well as M.2 NVMe PCIe SSD storage with a capacity of 128GB to 2TB.
The display is entrusted to a 13.3-inch Full HD (1920×1080) anti-glare screen with very bright option 1400cd/m², 100% sRGB and brilliant multi-touch touch.
Above, no webcam integrated as standard but we can find optional: HD 720p with microphone or Full HD infrared webcam allowing authentication byfacial recognition via Windows Hello technology.
The connectivity is also centered on nomads since optional options are PROVIDED GPS (U-Blox), 4G/ LTE Qualcomm SDX20 and even 5G Qualcomm SDX55. Other wireless options include Wi-Fi ax (2×2, Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX210) and Wi-Fi 6E but also Bluetooth.
In addition, there is a chiclet keyboard with key backlight option, 2 Waves MaxxAudio Pro speakers (2x2W) as well as a microSD card reader, a NanoSIM slot, headphone/microphone and Gigabit Ethernet combo audio ports, 2 USB 3.2 (Gen1, 1 PowerShare), 2 USB 3.2 Type-C (Gen2) Thunderbolt 4 or an HDMI 2.0 video output. The majority of the connectors are hidden behind caches. Dell tells us that its Latitude 7330 Rugged Extreme will be marketed in December 2021
