The cost of new items will start at $ 1,200.

Dell Inc.'s Latitude 7285, the company's latest 2-in-1 notebook aimed at business users, has gone on sale. But wireless charging isn't cheap and if you want to enjoy the convenience of wireless charging with your Dell Latitude 7285 you will need to fork over an additional $500 for both the Wireless Charging Keyboard and Mat, in addition to the already pricey Latitude 7285 standalone tablet.

The device will cost $ 1,200.

The most interesting aspect about the notebook, which is the wireless charging technology, is made possible thanks to WiTricity's magnetic resonance technology. Apart from the usual high-end laptop configuration that includes a 12-inch detachable tablet-like display, a seventh generation Intel Core i7 processor, 128GB SSD and 8GB of RAM, the laptop comes with wireless charging.

Unfortunately, like the Microsoft Surface Pro, you'd have to buy even the basic, non-wireless charging keyboard separately for $250.

Whenever we speak of wireless charging, flagship smartphones from Samsung come to the mind.

Surface Pro clones, copycats and "killers" are everywhere these days, but you need to dig deep to find one that's special in any meaningful sense.

When it comes to ports, the Latitude 7285 includes two USB Type-C Thunderbolt 3, a USIM card slot (WWAN only) and a United States dollars 3.0 Memory card reader.

You can get the Latitude 7285 here and the Latitude 5289 here. The same is true for this Latitude 7285 but you don't actually place the 2-in-1 tablet on the optional charging mat. Dell has also announced more conventional convertibles like the Dell Latitude 5000 12 (5289), now available starting at $899.99 and a Dell Latitude 7000 13 (7389) still coming in August.
