Dell Unveils World’s First Wireless Charging Laptop

Meet Dell’s Latitude 7285, world’s first wireless charging 2-in-1 computer! Well it comes with a twist, but still it is ground breaking I guess. The… twist is that you have to pay an extra 550$ to get 7285’s wireless charging keyboard accessory and the charging mat that goes along with it (keyboard only will set you back $380, the charging mat is $200).

The Dell Latitude 7285 isn’t cheap it self, as it costs approximately 1200$ but comes with some pretty decent specs, such as Core-i5-7Y54, 128GB of internal storage, 8GB of RAM and a 12-inch display. If you want to charge it wirelessly then you’ll need to have the 2-in-1 docked to the wireless-compatible keyboard. In addition, Dell says that the charging pad is not designed to be used on metal surfaces. Basically if you want to use the computer on a metal surface, you’ll need to use a non-metal stand that would raise the base at least 50mm (almost 2 inches).

But that’s the price to pay (along with an extra 550$) to enjoy wireless charging I guess.
