Dell released a new Latitude D420 model, this is the company's first ultra-portable model with Wi-Fi and a Core Solo processor. Under optimal conditions the notebook will last for more than seven hours with a 9-cell 68WHr battery.
Starting at $1380 - about $330 more than a basic D410 and $210 more than a entry-level X1 - a naked D420 includes an Intel Core Solo U1300 processor (1.06 GHz), a 12.1" WXGA LCD, 512MB DDR2-533 memory and a 60 GB hard drive. The standard configuration also includes a new feature called "Wi-Fi Catcher", a switch that allows users to find wireless connections without turning the D420 on or booting the device up. The switch can also disable all wireless functions off.
