The Dell Latitude 13 is a mid-level compact business laptop. Dell is promoting the Latitude 13 as the world's thinnest 13" commercial client laptop. Though it is not certain, it is thought by insiders that the Latitude 13 will have a ULV processor like Dell's other compact laptop offering, the Vostro 13. This laptop is geared toward the business person more than the average user, as evidenced by features like Broadcom TruManage support. To ensure that the Latitude 13 can be used in the office, this laptop is virtualization-ready, which means that it can become a part of the office network server at will. As one would hope for in a business-oriented laptop, there are customized security features on the Latitude 13: there is Computrace software included, as well solid-state drives (SSD), full disk encryption (FDE), and a Trusted Platform Module (TPM).
