New Latitude Notebooks Coming

Today we launched three notebooks in our Latitude corporate notebook line. The Latitude D630 and D830 are based on Intel’s new Santa Rosa (Centrino Pro) chipset. Beyond improved performance and battery life, these notebooks feature other enhancements like:

  • Hardware-level data encryption
  • Optional Solid State Disks offer improved reliability and reduced boot times vs. traditional mechanical hard drives.
  • Optional Turbo Memory cache card = A flash-based cache solution that helps improve application load and system wake times
  • Enhanced mobile broadband capabilities through integrated mini-card options like HSDPA and EV-DO Rev. A
  • Integrated 802.11n wireless connectivity which offers improved throughput and range over previous Wi-Fi options.

We also launched the Latitude D531, which is Dell’s first corporate notebook that supports AMD processors. Customers can order the D531 with a Turion 64 dual core processor. The D531 is also the first Latitude notebook that can be purchased with a brighter TrueLife LCD panel that we’ve offered on some Inspiron and XPS notebooks.

In this video, product manager Alison Gardner walks through features of these notebooks and discusses some of the new technologies they offer.
