Dell laptop doubles up on batteries

When operating without wires, sometimes two batteries are better than one--so argues Dell Computer with the release of a new Latitude notebook, the Latitude C610. The new model, a follow-up to Dell's Latitude C600, adds Intel Pentium III-M processors running at speeds from 866MHz to 1.2GHz and the ability to install a second battery. The battery, which fits into the notebook's disk drive bay, helps supply added juice to support power-hungry wireless LAN (local area network) applications, a Dell representative said. Prices for the C610 start at about $2,200.
