Dell’s new business convertible can last up to 24 hours.
Dell has made a big splash at the 2019 International CES, ditching (finally) the nostril-cam on their XPS 13 model. In the shadow that the XPS 13 announcement has cast is a less popular but no less promising device.
The all-new Dell Latitude 7400 is a 2-in-1 convertible laptop designed with professionals in mind. It’s packed with a bunch of great security features, including a proximity sensor, a robust infrared camera, and a fortified sign-in process. The proximity sensor is particularly interesting, locking the device automatically when you move five feet away from it.
On this first-look post, we’re breaking down everything you need to know about the new Dell Latitude 7400 2-in-1, from pricing, specs, availability, and more.
Check out Dell Latitude 7400 full list of specs after the bump. We’ve included both the convertible and traditional clamshell models.

The specs are unsurprisingly top-notch. The Whiskey Lake-U inclusion is most definitely welcome and tells us that Dell is fooling around. The bigger kicker here, however, is Dell Latitude’s battery options. There’s an absolutely bonkers 78 Wh option, which Dell claims can afford power users a whopping 24-hour battery life.
This is obviously something we’ll have to test on our own, but Dell seems confident. And having tested the previous iteration of the device, we’ll take their word for it for now.
The Dell Latitude 7400 2-in-1 will be available in March of 2019. The convertible version starts at $1599.
