With a lightweight and sturdy design, Dell says the product stands up to the demands of even the youngest of students while fitting easily on classroom desks and in backpacks.

“Dell’s heritage is built on empowering our customers with user-focused devices, unbeatable back-end expertise and cost-effective, tailored solutions that empower end-users and IT administrators alike," says Kirk Schell, vice president, personal computer product group, Dell.

Schell says Dell developed the Latitude 3330 to increase student access to technology and work in as many IT environments as possible.

Coming with a 13.3-inch anti-glare screen which minimises the scrolling required of smaller screens, other features include an HD 720 webcam,and WiDi support ii for virtual classroom collaboration.
