Dell has announced the Dell Latitude D620 and Latitude D820 (pictured), slimmer and lighter notebook computers featuring the Intel Core Duo processors and the flexibility of optional wireless broadband technology.
With a starting weight of 4.4 pounds, the Latitude D620 includes an Intel Core Duo T2300 processor and a 14.1-inch wide aspect XGA display. The US$1,149 base configuration includes 512MB shared DDR2 memory, 40GB SATA hard drive and 802.11 b/g Wi-Fi capability.
A base configuration for the Latitude D820 (starting weight 5.6 pounds) is US$1,289 and includes an Intel Core Duo T2300 processor with a 15.4-inch wide aspect XGA display, 512MB DDR2 shared memory, 40GB SATA hard drive and 802.11 b/g Wi-Fi capability. Advanced upgrade options for the D820 include the NVIDIA Quadro NVS 120M business graphics solution with 512MB, a high-resolution WUXGA display and 120GB hard drive.
An interesting feature for this new series is the HyperConnect, that enables users to choose wireless broadband connection options, with carrier choices of Cingular Wireless or Verizon Wireless (in the USA) and Vodafone (in Europe).
Security is also enhanced with an integrated new optional biometric fingerprint reader, smart card, and trusted platform module (TPM1.2). The Wave Embassy Trust Suite integrated security solution allows users or enterprises to easily enable and manage any of these security technologies individually or in concert.
Available now, the D620 and D820 feature Intel Core Duo processors and are fully compatible with Latitude notebook accessories shipped since 2003 including docking stations, optical drives and power adapters.
