First Wireless Charging Laptop
19 July, 2017 | Technology
When it comes to laptops, there hasn’t really been a game-charger in a very long time. Apple’s MacBook Pro tried when they released the Touch Bar but it failed to impress the majority of Apple fans.
However, Dell has just unveiled the world’s first wireless charging laptop which really could be a game-changer!
The laptop is called the Latitude 7285 and is the world’s first built-in wireless charging laptop, which means no more tripping over charging cables ever again.
The Latitude 7285 doesn’t look like anything special just a basic 2-in-1 windows laptop, but as a world’s first wireless charging laptop it will get a lot of attention.
The laptops pricing starts at $1,200 and comes with an Intel Core i5-7Y54 processor, 8GB of RAM and 128GB of SSD storage.
The 12.3 inch touchscreen has 2,880 x 1,920 resolutions. It also comes with a Windows Hello-ready camera which lets you sign into your computer using your face.
But obviously the real highlight is the fact it has wireless charging. So how does it work?
The wireless charging is similar to the inductive charging on smartphones such as the Galaxy S8, which means you have to place it onto a wireless charging mat.
Dell says it uses “magnetic resonance wireless charging technology” to wirelessly deliver 30 watts of power to charge up the laptop.
Oddly enough though, the laptop doesn’t actually come with the wireless charging keyboard or charging mat, which you have to purchase separately and they certainly aren’t cheap, setting you back an extra $580, bringing the total to $1,750 minimum if you want wireless charging.
Wireless charging laptops will become more popular in the near future but for now I imagine the majority of us will wait for prices to drop.
