Dell revs up Latitude notebooks

Dell Computer is expected to rev up its Latitude notebook line at the end of April with notebooks based on the 100- and 133-MHz Mobile Pentium processor.

Dell Computer is expected to rev up its Latitude notebook line at the end of April with models based on the 100- and 133-MHz Mobile Pentium processor.

The XPi line of Latitudes will for the first time get built-in 16-bit sound, a 11.3-inch LCD screen--compared to the 10.4-inch LCD in current models--and come standard with 16MB of RAM. Certain Latitude models will also integrate CD-ROM drives for the first time, and hard disk drives are expected to reach 1.2GB.

Dell is working toward a more complete revamping of its lineup later this year when it switches to Quanta and possibly other Taiwan-based companies to manufacture more of the notebooks. Sony now makes certain Latitude notebooks, but the Dell-Sony partnership is expected either to end or be scaled back, said a source familiar with Dell's notebook plans.
