The D420, the last model in the revamped Latitude line, is also the lightest in the family, weighing in between 3 and 3.5 pounds, depending on the capacity of the battery in the laptop. It sports a 12.1-inch wide-screen display, a choice of Wi-Fi 802.11g or 802.11a/g, and an Intel Core Solo processor. (Dual-core systems powered by Intel's Duo will be available later this summer, Dell said.)
Users can expect about 7.4 hours of battery life with the heaviest (and most expensive) 9-cell battery, Dell added.
The notebook is available immediately from the Dell site, and is priced starting at $1,149 after a $190 discount.
