LesDeLLiens.com unloads Latitude XT details

In late May, Dell announced to the world that it would bring a Tablet PC device to the market this fall. Dell showed a grainy video of its new Latitude XT in action, but failed to give any concrete details on the device. Some features were simply inferred from the video like the 12.1" display, built-in fingerprint reader and Windows Vista operating system.

Thankfully for us, LesDeLLiens.com has unloaded a wealth of information on the Latitude XT in addition to some high resolution imagery.

Consumers will be greeted with an ATI RS600ME northbridge and an SB600 southbridge. The GPU to be used will be an ATI Radeon Xpress 1250 with 256MB of HyperMemory which can be paired with either a traditional CCFL or LED-backlit 12.1" WXGA display.

LesDeLLiens.com says that the Latitude XT will come with an Ultra Low Voltage Core 2 Duo U7600 (1.2GHz) processor although other processor options are likely to be available. Up to 3GB of memory will be supported by the system.

Other features include Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, 802.11n, docking port, three USB 2.0 ports and the option of 4, 6 or 9-cell batteries. One feature of the battery packs used on the Latitude XT is visible in the picture of the device’s underside – Dell has included a touch sensitive power meter into each battery pack. The meter should report battery status even when the device is turned off.

According to the site, Dell's first Tablet PC will launch on November 5.

I agree totally. I have brought and used Thinkpad's for business use over the last 5 years.

Hear are few important things to take into account when looking for a laptop

1. Does it do what I want or does it just look pretty? Dont over look this, otherwise you may end up with an Intel Macbook pro! 2 USB ports...interesting. Having said that they make a better windows laptop than alot of others.

2. Is it strong and does it have good hard drive protection?

3. Good range of accessories, long life batterys?

4. What is the support like? Toshiba are pretty bad from my experience. Dell are ok. HP and IBM (Lenovo) are very good most of the time.

From my experience Thinkpads are your best options end of story. Yes i know the little red pointer in the keyboard is gay but all models except the X series ultra portable models had trackpads as well. I believe the new X series will have a normal trackpad :) and optical drive.

You need to take into account everything, and not just choose what "looks" nice. You could say it's a bit like choosing a girl. The ones that look nice on the outside are not always the best long term choice!
