State-of-the-art laptop performance and didn’t always come in a feather-light package. Check out how Dell’s laptops have gotten thinner and lighter over the ages:
Though it didn’t even feature a colour display, the Dell 316LT was one of the first laptops on the market and was considered top-of-the-line when it was released in 1989. At 6.7 kg and 8.25 cm, though, you were sure to get a great upper body workout while carrying it around.
Dell’s first laptop with a colour display was much thinner (5.84 cm) and lighter (2.9 kg) than its predecessor shaving off more than 3 cm.
The Latitude XPi was the first laptop to feature a long-lasting lithium-ion battery. It was designed especially for business travelers who needed to take their work on the go since it could stand up to long flights and layovers.
The Latitude X200 was a high-performance business laptop released in 2002. Featuring such advanced technology as a low-voltage Pentium-III-M processor and 30 GB hard drive, the Latitude X200 was also made for portability—it was only 2 cm thick and weighed a mere 1.27 kg.
Adamo means to fall in love with in Latin, and that’s certainly what Dell users did when this sleek laptop was unveiled for the first time in 2009. This was a high-end notebook that offered modern styling and the latest specs all rolled into one 1.65 cm-thick package.
