Manufacturers have been striving to produce devices with heightened security, and it looks like Dell has emerged with a product that fulfills users’ laptop security needs. However, this is not the only thing that Dell gives you with its new E6540 release.

Most laptops received a lot of attention when Intel’s new Haswell processors were launched. These were marketed and made available to the public, which is of course one of the reasons for the hype. While this happened Dell worked quietly and added a business notebook to its Latitude family by making use of the new CPUs.

Dell’s New Latitude E6540 Laptop Has Security Features and Intel Haswell ProcessorsThe new Latitude offers two different flavors of 15.6-inch display. Bothe these are LED-backlit:  1,920 x 1,080 or 1,366 x 768. This is the only Latitude that comes with a brawny Core i7-4800MQ processor. It presents users with the option of adding a discrete graphics card from any manufacturer.

The Latitude has a rough Tri-metal exterior, and it safeguards storage with rubber isolation of the hard drive. It also carries Dell’s Fast Response Free-fall sensor, which prevents disasters headed your way. The Latitude also provides protection in the shape of a RSA SecurIDs, fingerprint readers and a FIPS 201-certified smart card. It also has FIPS 140-2-certified TPM support.
