Dell has rolled out the Latitude D505, the latest edition to its line of laptops designed for mobile business users.
The D505 comes with support for Intel's Celeron M processors, which are scaled-down versions of the Pentium M processor used in top-of-the-line notebooks.
The D505 is slightly heavier than the D500, but both models target business travellers on a budget.
The D505 and D500 are in the middle of Dell's Latitude product family, with heavier and more powerful versions available at one end of the scale, and lighter versions with smaller screens available at the other end.
A base configuration of the D505 costs $1,049, and comes with a 1.2GHz Celeron M processor, 128Mbytes of memory, a 20Gbyte hard drive, a 14.1in display and Intel's Pro/Wireless 802.11b chip.
Customers can upgrade to Dell's TrueMobile 1300 chip with support for both 802.11b and 802.11g at no charge.
