Dell updates Latitude range

Dell has relaunched its Latitude range of business notebooks, with Intel SpeedStep tehnology and wireless networking as standard

Dell has announced a new look for its Latitude notebook series. The new C600 and C800 models feature Pentium III processors, contemporary styling and in-built wireless capability.

The lightweight notebooks, aimed at the corporate market, are fully backward compatible with other Latitude products, including docking stations, adaptors and media modules. The C600, which is available immediately, has Intel’s SpeedStep technology on the microprocessor, with a starting weight of 2.4kg. The C800, which will ship within the next two months, is a performance model with a 15” screen, and has bays for up to two CD-ROM, DVD or CD-RW drives.

Both models have on-board antennae for wireless connectivity. The antennae connects to the Mini PCI slot, which will contain a TrueMobile wireless LAN device for 802.11b wireless local area networking. The TrueMobile card is planned for early 2001.

David Marshall, business manager for Latitude in Dell EMEA said: “This new generation of Latitude notebooks combines an elegant design with the latest wireless networking technologies to offer customers a future-proof mobile computing solution. These new notebooks were developed based on feedback from corporate and institutional customers worldwide to epitomize the stability, commonality and compatibility that customers expect while providing greater flexibility for mobile workers.”
