Dell has released a new laptop onto the market which is their smallest and lightest laptop yet. The Latitude X1 weighs in at 1.13kg and measures only 286 x 197 x 25 mm. Despite the small size, the laptops battery power should last for around 6 hours.
The Latitude X1 is built on the same design as Samsung’s Sens Q30 sold only in Asia. Not only that, it also seems to be the direct competition to the Apple Powerbook.
Other features included in this small package; Intel’s 1.1GHz Pentium M 733, 256MB of 400MHz DDR2 memory (expandable to 1.28GB), Intel’s 802.11b/g wireless, and a 12.1in. WXGA widescreen display. When ordering from Dell you can choose between a 30 or 60GB hard drive. You may have noticed that we didn’t include an optical drive in the spec list, that’s because it is external. The small laptop design doesn’t allow for a drive to be included in the housing.
