Dell Latitude 13 5320 (2-in-1) vs Dell Latitude 13 5310 (2-in-1) – what are the differences?
Dell has a proven track record of always coming out with fresh devices that always have great qualities about them. Their newest Latitude 13 5320 (2-in-1) improves on the already successful blueprint of its predecessor, making for a fantastic option, if you’re in the market for a new convertible device that you can both use at work, as a laptop, to handle all of your office needs, or at home, as a table, for entertainment purposes.
To see exactly what has changed, today we will make a quick comparison between the new Latitude 13 5320 (2-in-1) and last year’s Latitude 13 5310 (2-in-1).
Starting off on the exterior, the new device retains the basic outline of the design with sharp edges and rounded corners. The build materials also stay the same, albeit with a small caveat. The new one uses up to 21% bioplastics, which is mainly used for the LCD cover. The bezels on the screen are smaller on the new device and the overall dimensions have also been slimmed down, by around 3 mm. The touchpad loses its dedicated buttons, for some integrated ones. Overall, we like the new one better, especially with the Gorilla Glass screen finish, which both give the display a great level of scratch resistance and anti-glare properties.
The display options on both laptops are exactly the same with only one 13.3-inch Full HD IPS panel. This is in contrast to the normal, non-2-in-1 model which had a 768p TN display with an optional Full HD IPS panel.
Continuing on with the specifications, here we see the most change, in our opinion. The new Tiger Lake platform from Intel looks to be the best option for devices that both want power and efficiency. You get multiple options, which cover the entry, mid, and high-level, with the Core i3-1125G4 being the starting point and from there you can go with up to the Core i7-1185G7. With these CPUs, you get the Iris Xe Graphics, which are some of the best iGPUs that you can get right now and completely outshines the previously available Intel UHD Graphics.
I/O is also improved. On the previous year’s device, you had two USB Type-A 3.2 Gen 1, as well as one Thunderbolt 3 port, HDMI 1.4 connector, a 3.5 mm audio jack, and a mini DisplayPort. The new laptop comes with one more Thunderbolt port, and now both ports support Thunderbolt 4. The HDMI connector is also a 2.0 one.
