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.
