Dell is releasing what it describes as the world’s thinnest and lightest 16-inch laptop, the Latitude™ Z. According to the company, the laptop will also be the world’s first with wireless docking and inductive charging.

The Latitude Z is set to feature an "instant on" OS and a wireless USB hub to connect to the consumer’s desktop monitor and peripherals. The laptop is also said to have an Intel ULV processor and an ARM processor to boost the battery-life and allow the "instant on" mode to work. The device has power coils built into its base which allow it to charge wirelessly.

The Latitude Z is available starting today in select countries in Europe and Asia, as well as Canada and the U.S., starting at $1,999.
