The Dell Latitude 9330 has a touchpad with Stream Deck buttons

Asus is no longer the only major laptop maker to do funky touchpad stuff: Dell has thrown its Latitude business line into the mix. The new Latitude 9330 has a new “collaboration touchpad” which I have trouble seeing as anything other than the trackpad version of a Stream Deck. In short, it appears that there are a number of LED buttons across the top of the touchpad that have access to control functions for microphone, camera, chat and screen sharing.

Also interesting is that this laptop is the first 13-inch device in the Latitude 9000 series. The 9000 line, although generally outside the price ranges of many consumers, is the advanced segment of the Latitude line, known for being thin and packed with features. Business customers looking for flagship functionality in as small a chassis as they can find will now have an option in this space.

Elsewhere, this device has a 16:10 touch screen with 2560 x 1600 resolution and a 90 percent screen-to-body ratio. The webcam has an automatic shutter and a hardware kill switch on the keyboard. You can configure the device with up to a 12th generation Intel Core i7 and 32 GB RAM (LPDDR5) with a 50 Wh battery. It will be available in June 2022, with prices to be announced. (I want to ruin the surprise for you: it will not be cheap.)
