If you want to get people's attention (and your product doesn't have an Apple logo stamped on it), one of the best ways to do that is to release a convertible tablet laptop. Although, while these devices offer something different from your run-of-the-mill laptop, and everyone loves reading about them, we've never met anyone who actually uses one on a regular basis.

Still, we were intrigued when Dell made a tablet play late last year with its Latitude XT , and it seems as if this business-oriented system was popular enough to warrant a sequel. Engadget has some leaked specifications and photographs of the Latitude XT2, which probably won't be out until November.

By then you'll be able to get Intel's not-yet-released Centrino 2 platform (formerly code-named Montevina), along with a welcome eSATA port. The leaked documents also say that the addition of an internal optical dive is "under investigation."
