Wireless charging tech is pretty interesting and as we see more integrations of the technology we begin to find more use case for it, but at the moment, I’m not extremely sure about Dell’s latest use of the technology.
This is the new Dell Latitude 7285, which they say is the “the world’s thinnest and lightest Windows-based commercial 2-in-1 and is the first to offer wireless charging”, an interesting proposal but maybe not an extremely useful one.
It was first unveiled at this year’s CES as a detachable 2-in-1 hybrid that has a 12-inch display and easier charging, however, it has only been launch today.
It works alongside the optional wireless charging base accessory, which allows you to pop the laptop on top of the mat and get charging, which Dell says will help “modernize today’s workspace by further eliminating wires”.
And of course, it’s not just wireless charging.
The laptop itself will also start out with and Intel® Core™ i5-7Y54 processor, 128GB SSD storage, and 8GB of memory.
It is available now for from $1,199.99 at its base config, however, to get the Wireless Charging keyboard and the Wireless Charging Mat then you will have to pay $549.99 more on top of that, leaving you with quite the large $1,750 bill at the end.
However, if that’s for you then you can take a look and pick it up at the source link below.
Sadly, there’s no word yet on UK pricing or availability.
