The venerable Latitude line gets a face-lift with two updated models that incorporate Intel Core Duo processors, built-in EV-DO wireless WAN, and fingerprint readers.
The Latitude D620, an update to the D610, weighs the same as its predecessor (5.4 pounds) but now features a 14.1-inch wide-screen display. The $2,101 test configuration that's currently in CNET Labs includes a 2GHz Intel Core Duo T2500 processor, 1GB of fast 533MHz memory, a fairly sizable 80GB hard drive spinning at a decent 5,400rpm clip, and a new Nvidia Quadro NVS 120M graphics chip with 128MB of dedicated VRAM and another 128MB that it shares with main memory. We'll have a full review up as soon as the D620 finishes our performance benchmarks.
