Many tech companies are going to debut their innovative and latest tech gadgets at the CES 2017. Dell is planning to give a tough competition to Microsoft Surface Pro with its upcoming model Dell Latitude 2585.

The new Dell latitude 2585 and Microsoft Surface Pro has many similar features. It seems that Dell is the latest company to join Microsoft Surface Pro?s Hybrid craze. Let?s discover the entire story of Dell?s upcoming model and Microsoft?s Surface Pro range.

Dell latitude 5285 is just like Microsoft Surface Pro

It is hard to differentiate between the two laptops. Dell?s laptop is featured with 1TB SSD, 16GB of RAM and Intel?s Core i7 processor just like the Surface Pro. There is also a built-in kickstand, a soft keyboard and stylus support for the device. This is, again, similar to the Microsoft?s device.

Dell latitude 2585 is different with Microsoft Surface Pro with just a single feature and that is display. Microsoft has pricey high-resolution 2736 X 1824 panel while Dell has selected the traditional and affordable display with just 1920 X 1080 resolution. It is possible that the company opted for traditional display to maintain the cost of its laptop.
