ROUND ROCK, Texas -- April 16, 2013

Dell today launched the Latitude 3330, designed to help educators teach
tomorrow’s leaders while providing excellent value to school districts. The
new laptop offers the robust computing features required to maximize learning
productivity, compatibility with Dell’s existing solutions and services for
education and support for personalized learning opportunities in the
classroom.

A snap to deploy, the Latitude 3330 easily integrates into a school’s existing
IT infrastructure, speeding up time to classroom and saving time and money.
Its sleek, lightweight, and sturdy design stands up to the demands of even the
youngest of students, fits easily on classroom desks and in backpacks and
moves easily from classroom to classroom or home and back. The new laptop
offers no-compromise performance with full laptop productivity and all day
battery life with a 6-cell battery ^i.

Affordability, productivity and interactive learning

Dell developed the Latitude 3330 to help increase student access to technology
and to work in as many IT environments as possible. The new laptop fully
supports Microsoft Windows 8, Windows 7, and Linux Ubuntu, giving students the
ability to produce, consume and share information, as well as leverage common
learning applications and software to help personalize their learning
experience during the school day and at home.

Built on the trusted reputation of Dell’s Latitude line, the new laptop has a
13.3-inch anti-glare screen that minimizes the scrolling required of smaller
screens, an HD 720 webcam, and WiDi support ^ii for virtual classroom
collaboration. The Latitude 3330 is available with a broad choice of storage
technology ranging from proven standard hard drives to high-performance SSD
for maximum durability and quick system response time. Equipped with VGA,
HDMI, USB3.0 and optional USB docking, the new laptop can connect easily to
the majority of desk environments and room infrastructures for smooth
presentation, teaching and maximized learning time.

The newest Dell Mobile Computing Cart solution, also announced today, is
available in managed and unmanaged options and enables secure storage,
charging and transport for easy mobility. It is designed to accommodate a
variety of form factors and screen sizes, including Dell tablets, Ultrabooks,
laptops and up to 30 Latitude 3330s. The managed cart option allows for remote
management and IT updates, ideal for managing a fleet of systems between
multiple campus locations.

Superb security and manageability

Dell offers tailored solutions options for cost effective security,
management, and end-user productivity. Dell Data Protection | Encryption,
available on the Latitude 3330 in the coming months, enables secure employee
or student collaboration with a single, easy-to-manage solution for data
encryption across devices, removable media and in public cloud storage . With
DDP|E, a school district’s data encryption needs can be remotely managed using
a single console and compliance is simplified with a one-touch present policy,
ideal for safeguarding confidential student and employee data.

Additionally, the Latitude 3330 comes with a complete set of automation tools
to help IT administrators tackle the time-consuming tasks of deployment,
monitoring and updating systems with superior efficiency. Dell’s deep
integration with industry-leading consoles, such as Dell KACE and Microsoft
System, enables better deployment, quicker configuration and easier management
of updates.

Availability and Pricing

The Latitude 3330 is available in late April 2013 and starts at $419. The Dell
Mobile Computing cart is also available in late April and starts at $1899.99
for the unmanaged configuration and $2799.99 for the managed configuration.
