Dell has cut prices of its dual-core Inspiron E1705 and Latitude D620 notebooks to less than $1,000?
The price-cut could herald a price war in the brand-new dual-core notebook market worldwide and accelerate migration of the mainstream notebook platform from single-core to dual-core.

Dell has lowered the price of its Inspiron E1705 series, a consumer notebook that features Intel’s Core Duo T2600 processor and 17-inch widescreen display, to US$999. Meanwhile, the Latitude D620 line, which is based on Intel’s Core Duo T2300 processor and has a 14.1-inch widescreen display, is also available from US$899.
