Dell just went all out for 2021 with new laptops in the Latitude 3000, 5000, and 7000 series along with additions to their desktop OptiPlex 3000 and 7000 line up ahead of CES 2021. Dell also has something for the lower-end market as well with the announcement of the Precision 3560 and 4 different monitors including a 40-inch ultra-wide WUHD monitor.

Dell Latitude 9000 series
The Latitude series, designed for business customers, is leading the charge with the new Latitude 9420 and 9520. These laptops will come in in standard clamshell and a 2-in-1 form factor as well. Packed with the newest 11th gen Intel vPro CPUs, it comes with new features like an automated, integrated webcam – “SafeShutter” to physically block your camera when it’s not in use.


The 9420 will come in either a 2560 x 1600 2-in-1 form factor or a lower-resolution 1080p laptop configuration. RAM goes up to 32GB, while storage can be configured with up to a 1TB PCIe NVMe SSD.

Dell Latitude 7000 series
The Latitude 7520 comes with an 11th-Gen Intel Core i7 processor with up to 32GB RAM. There is a 15.6-inch display with up to UHD resolution and a 1TB SSD M.2 2230 PCIe Gen 3 NVMe storage. It does not have the automated SafeShutter feature either.

Dell Latitude 5000 series
The new 5000 series laptops are also getting the new 11th Gen vPro chips but use 21 percent bioplastic content in the lids of the 5000 series laptops in a new environmental move to improve sustainability.

Desktops and Monitors
