Latitude packs big punch in lightweight class

This is the new Latitude family of ultra-portable laptops from Dell.

The company has collaborated with almost 4,000 IT professionals and end users to develop the range which it says is the lightest in its history.

The laptops are available now in the US but Dell has not yet announced a UK release date.

This is the Latitude E4200 which has a 12.1-inch screen and, at weighing in at just 2.2 pounds, is the lightest the company has ever produced.

Dell also claims "breakthrough" battery life of up to 19 hours for the Latitude range.

Dell has announced its Latitude ON technology will soon appear on the E4200 and E4300.

The tech allows users to access email, calendar, contacts and the internet almost instantly by not starting the system's main operating system.
