Dell is expanding its range of professional equipment: this time with the Dell Latitude 7320 Detachable, a convertible laptop that uses the same format as Microsoft’s Surface Pro and aims to become an alternative to this manufacturer’s popular model.
To achieve this we find ourselves with specifications very well adapted to the times: it integrates the latest 11th generation Intel Core and two USB-C ports with Thunderbolt 4 interface, although the screen is not as striking as that of the Surface Pro.
Dell Latitude 7320 Detachable technical specifications
Dell’s device stands out for a 13-inch diagonal screen that, yes, reduces the pixel density compared to its main competitor, the Surface Pro. The FHD+ resolution (1,920 x 1,280) of this one cannot rival the 2,736 x 1,824 pixels of the magnificent PixelSense screens of the Microsoft convertible.
The Dell Latitude 7320 Detachable’s display also has support for ComfortView technology that protects our eyes from blue light emissions. The brightness of 500 nits is also remarkable and will allow us to work with the device and of course, use it to enjoy multimedia content taking advantage of these options.
Even so, we have remarkable features in another section, such as its 11th generation Intel Core processors, which will also allow us to access the graphics performance of the new Intel Iris Xe graphics chips.

The connectivity options include two USB-C ports with Thunderbolt 4 interface – Microsoft still does not provide access to this option – which gives access to numerous connectivity possibilities.
The 40 Wh battery takes advantage of the Express Charge fast-charging system, which depending on the adapter chosen (there are 45, 60, and 65 W versions with different sizes, all via USB-C) will allow 80% charge in less than an hour.
A bigger cousin for the Surface Pro
Everything about this Latitude 7230 Detachable smells like a Surface Pro. This is noticeable in its design, which is that of a 13-inch tablet (slightly larger than what Microsoft offers, which comes to 12.3) and which has a fold-out stand on the back so that it can be placed on a table or other surfaces.
The screen frames are 10% thinner than those of the 7210 Detachable that preceded it, but in essence, we have an identical format that was already used in its predecessor and other competing models.
The bet here is on the versatility of being able to use the device as a tablet and to do so with a significant difference in terms of power: the Surface Pro 7 still uses 10th generation Intel Core processors, but here Dell takes advantage of the new 11th generation Intel Core processors.
As with Microsoft’s “detachable”, Dell’s device is sold as a tablet, with no accessories included (except for the power adapter). Thus, this will be the only thing that users will be able to use as standard because neither the official Dell keyboard nor its stylus is included as standard.
We can of course take advantage of external keyboards and mice, but as with other convertibles the charm of these products is to use especially the official touchpad keyboard provided by Dell and that will involve an additional outlay (we do not yet know the price of this accessory).
That keyboard also follows the same traces as the Type Cover of the Surface Pro: extra-flat design and that small magnetic stopper that allows you to bend it slightly so that it is slightly inclined and in a more ergonomic position when typing.
The same goes for the official Dell pen or stylus, which can be stored in a special recess or “cradle” on top of the keyboard and also has an induction charging system that allows you to have it at 100% charge in just 30 seconds: that will give you autonomy of 90 minutes.
The security options are numerous and range from support for TPM 2.0 technology to an optional fingerprint reader, SmartCard, these cards but in Contactless format or technologies such as Dell SafeBIOS and SafeID to protect the integrity of the equipment and our user accounts.
We also have a proximity sensor and a webcam with Windows Hello support. That means we will enjoy Dell’s Express Sign-In technology, which allows that when the computer detects that we are in front of it, facial recognition is activated and we access the session securely and transparently, without having to enter passwords.
Pricing and Availability of the Dell Latitude 7320 Detachable
The new Dell Latitude 7320 Detachable is available starting today in the United States, where it will have a starting price of $1,549.
At that price, we insist, only the tablet and the adapter are included. The keyboard and stylus are two separate accessories.
