Even if your work schedule can't be flexible, your computer should be. Dell's newest business laptop, the Latitude 5289 2-in-1, takes that mantra literally with the ability to flip into a tablet. Its 10-hour battery life means it can last all day, and, if you're security-conscious, there are several optional features available to protect your data. The display isn't terribly vivid, and it can run on the hot side, but its performance and port selection will help you power through your day.

Dell isn't exactly re-inventing the wheel here. The Latitude looks like every business notebook the company has released in recent memory, with a soft-touch black lid and a silver Dell logo. Under the lid is the 12.5-inch, 1920 x 1080 touch display surrounded by a thick bezel, especially on top (likely to make room for the infrared camera). There's also a backlit, island-style keyboard, soft-touch deck and two 360-degree hinges. The hinges allow for the Latitude to be used in four modes: laptop, tablet, tent or stand (with the keyboard face down and the display pointing up).
At 12 x 8.3 x 0.7 inches and 3 pounds, it's comparable in size to competitors. The Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 260 is 2.9 pounds and 12.2 x 8.7 x 0.7 inches, while the HP EliteBook x360 G2 is 2.8 pounds and 12.6 x 8.6 x 0.6 inches.
For such a small machine, it has a strong, varied selection of ports. The left side is where you'll find a pair of USB Type-C ports with DisplayPort capability (one of which will be taken up while charging), an HDMI output and a USB 3.0 port. On the right are a headphone jack, microSD card slot, another USB 3.0 port and a Noble lock slot.
Dell sells the Latitude with a number of optional security features to keep your workplace data safe. For $21, you can get a model with a Smart Card reader, while $35 gets you that, a fingerprint reader and NFC capability. Models with Intel's Core i5-7300U and Core i7-7600U CPUs include vPro for remote management. All of them include TPM to securely store biometric data.
Additionally, the Latitude is MIL-STD 810G-tested to protect against dust, extreme temperatures, shocks, dust and more.
The 12.5-inch, FHD display on the Latitude is serviceable for text, but it's not exactly colorful. When I watched a 1080p trailer for Thor: Ragnarok, the Hulk's skin wasn't as viridescent as I expected and the red in Thor's cape was a bit too dark. It's sharp, though, and I could see small pieces of rubble flying in slow-mo as Hela attacked Asgard.
