This summer Dell announced they were releasing two new business-focused Latitude laptops running the Chrome OS. The Latitude range is already popular with enterprise users running Windows, but they wanted to create new Chromebook Enterprise devices which could be managed by a business’s IT team, so they worked closely with Google and the new Latitudes are now available.

Enterprise businesses can choose from the Latitude 5400 14″ i5 laptop, or the Latitude 5300 13.3″ i5 2-in-1. These devices will be bundled with Dell’s cloud-based support services, making it easier for IT admins to control roll out within an organisation, as well as integration into, and management of, pre-existing Windows environments.

Take a look at this spec comparison for the Latitude 5400 and 5300:

Dell isn’t the only manufacturer launching a Chrome enterprise range. HP launched a series of enterprise Chrome OS devices, including the Chromebooks and Chromebox, stating that more enterprises were looking at Chromebooks given that employees are mostly using web applications. The HP range isn’t available yet, but watch this space for more details soon.
