Dell unveils ultra-light Latitude X200

Dell Computer has unveiled its lightest, slimmest Latitude laptop, which weighs in at only 1.26kg and is a mere 20.3mm thick.

The Latitude X200 has a 12.1-inch XGA (extended graphics array) TFT (thin film transistor) display, giving its screen a maximum resolution of 1,024 by 768 pixels.

The sleek laptop comes with a 30G-byte ATA-100 hard drive, up to a 640M-byte PC133 SDRAM (Synchronous Dynamic RAM) and an Ultra Low Voltage Mobile Intel Pentium III-M 800 MHz processor combined with an Intel 830MG chipset.

The X200 is the second ultra-portable laptop in the Latitude line, designed as a companion to the C400, and the company's first ultra-lightweight product. Although the C400 is heavier than the X200, it is aimed at the power user, boasting a 1.2 GHz processor, a Dell spokesman said. The C400 began shipping in November.

The X200 is geared even more toward mobile users, with a 56Kbps V.92 modem with an integrated 3Com 10/100 Ethernet, and a six-cell, 20-watt hour "smart" lithium ion battery. It has two USB (universal serial bus) ports, one PC card slot, and one six-pin IEEE 1394 port.

The Latitude X200 starts at $1,899 with these standard features and will begin shipping in all of Dell's worldwide regions in mid to late May. The company is also offering an array of customised options.
