Yesterday I had the chance to check out a new laptop from Dell. With its crisp screen, ultra-thin profile, and cutting edge specs like an SSD hard drive, it's certainly a looker, yet there's nothing immediately obvious about the machine -- part of Dell's business-class Latitude line -- that makes it unique.

Oh, I thought this was about the real "wireless charging" - through magnetic resonance. Turns out, it's just a glorified docking system.

I don't really see a point to this, requires a special dock (available as a $200 option), 200 bucks to charge your laptop in a dock rather than plugging in the included adapter? I see this going nowhere.
