Dell has introduced a new budget notebook for students and businesses. The Latitude 3330 is a lightweight notebook
with a 13.3-inch, 1,366×768-resolution display. The company is also
introducing a new Mobile Computing Cart can be used to store and
transport up to 30 notebooks at once.
The Latitude 3330 can be configured to use several Intel processors,
from Celeron to Core i5, between 2GB and 6GB of RAM, and has options for
Windows 7, Windows 8, or Ubuntu 12.04 as the operating system. Storage
options include a 128GB SSD,
a 320GB or 640GB hard drive, or a 500GB combined SSD and hard disk. It
also has a 720p HD webcam, Wi-Fi and WiDi support, VGA, HDMI, and USB
3.0 ports, and optional USB docking.
As far as The Mobile Computing Cart, it comes in managed and
unmanaged options. It can hold a wide range of notebook sizes and form
factors too. Managed carts allow for remote management and IT updates of
stored devices, allowing for software updates and changes without
having to take the notebook
out of storage. Pretty handy for IT staff. The Latitude 3330 starts at
$419, while the Mobile Computing Cart will start at $1,900 unmanaged,
$2,800 managed. They will be available in late April.
