Back at the end of March, I mentioned an article from CNET about rumors of a Dell Latitude D420. I also mentioned that the X1 appeared close to being replaced (since then, the X1 was replaced by the XPS M1210), and with the 710M already available, and with Intel’s new Core Duo/Centrino platform becoming widely available, it would only be a matter of time before Dell upgraded the ultraportable Latitude (other Latitude notebooks have already been upgrade).
Looks like specifications and high-resolution images of the new Dell XPS M1210 have been released. It’s supposedly slated for a mid-May release. Back at the end of March, when the Samsung Q35 was released, we speculated that we might soon see a Dell Latitude X2 (or whatever it will be called). It looks like this might be in effect the Latitude X1’s replacement, instead of a X2, as the specifications are very similar (and a Samsung ultraportable notebook was the basis for the X1).
Would you like a Dell 710M or perhaps a 12-inch iBook or 12-inch PowerBook in different colors? Last month, Colorware started offering their services for Dell’s 710M 12-inch ultraportable notebooks. You can get different high-gloss colored coatings for your notebook case (including the recently added color “Cotton Candy Pink” ???) from Colorware, as well as customized corporate logos/photos.
LAPTOP Magazine has finished their review of the budget ultraportable notebook, the Dell Inspiron 710M. The 710M is a slight upgrade over it’s predecessor, the Dell 700M ( a bump in processor speed, case color, and software). It comes with a 12-inch display and can be had for right around $1000 – $1200 USD (if not cheaper, depending on configuration).
