Look, I get it, it is hard to break dependence on Microsoft Windows and Office after so many decades.

Dell is making a bid for business customers in search of a premium Chromebook with its newly launched Latitude 7410 Chromebook Enterprise, a 14-inch laptop (or 2-in-1, if you prefer to call it that) co-developed with Intel as part of the Project Athena innovation program. One is a traditional clam shell notebook, while the other also serves as a tablet.

The laptop gets a 4K panel with low blue light display for better readability and eye comfort. It offers up to 16GB of DDR4 RAM (less than last year's models). The 2-in-1 will support an active stylus, but it will be sold separately.

Battery life should be exceptional, as Dell promises up to 21 hours of use between charges. Of course, that will vary based on the battery configuration, screen brightness, and how hard you tax the CPU.

As far as the ports are concerned, you get a 3.5mm audio jack, a USB 3.2 port with PowerShare, another USB 3.2 port, wedge lock slot, HDMI port, 2 USB-C ports with Power Delivery, and a Flash Card Reader United States dollars 4.0. While there is no 5G cellular support, it does come with Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) standard.

"This is not just another Chromebook", Dell senior vice president Rahul Tikoo says in a prepared statement.

The Latitude 7410 Chromebook Enterprise is available now starting at $1,299. "Employees will appreciate its sleek design and collaboration features that help them navigate new work dynamics, while IT managers have the management and security features they expect when deploying devices in a corporate environment". They can service and upgrade storage and batteries and operate the same support model across their entire organization. "Our latest Latitude Chromebook Enterprise is designed equal parts for employees and IT managers adopting Chrome OS in the enterprise".

"With the Latitude 7410 Chromebook Enterprise", the company wrote in its announcement, "Dell expands its Latitude Chromebook lineup -now offering a mainstream and premium option - to give companies more choice in devices without sacrificing enterprise-class scale, manageability and security". All of this comes at a price. The company will also make models with Intel Core i3 processors starting at $1,099.
