Dell just released the Latitude 7285 which is a direct contender to Microsoft's Surface Pro line. Dubbed as the "world's thinnest and lightest Windows-based two-in-one", Latitude 7285 is packed with powerful features without ever giving up mobility and compactness.

Dell Latitude 7285 is a premium notebook sporting a 12.3-inch display with 2,800 x 1920 screen resolution and anti-glare ability. The screen is made of Corning Gorilla Glass 4 and is touchscreen capable.

Market price starts at US$1,999.99 for the variant that has 8 gigabytes of RAM, 128 gigabytes of internal storage, and Intel Core i5 Kaby Lake processor. Another variant available has 16 gigabytes of RAM, 512 gigabytes of internal storage, and Intel Core i7 Kaby Lake processor.

The key takeaway in this product is its wireless charging capability being a first in the industry. However, it does not come for free as interested Latitude 7285 users have to add a hefty amount to get this feature working for the device.

Dell is separately selling the Wireless Charging Keyboard and Wireless Charging Mat combo for US$549.99. Individually, the Wireless Charging Keyboard costs US$379.99, while the Wireless Charging Mat costs US$199.99. Buying the combo peripherals can save buyers US$29.99. Take note that the two-in-one notebook's wireless charging ability cannot function sans the mat.

Latitude 7285 also comes with the conventional battery pack for those who do not have the luxury to pay extra dollars or those who are uninterested of this feature. Additionally, the Productivity Keyboard, which is a traditional console, comes for US$249.99.
