Dell unveils smallest and lightest notebook

Dell, the leading supplier of notebook computers worldwide, has introduced its ultimate notebook for travelling professionals - Latitude X1. Starting at 1.14 kg, the Latitude X1 is designed for mobile users who demand the lightest possible weight without compromising performance or durability.

"We are catering to the demands of our frequently travelling business customers. Lighter than any other Dell notebook, Latitude X1 combines the latest mobile processors, wide screen displays and an outstanding keyboard that focuses on usability," said Dinesh Pai, General Manager, Dell India.

The 12.1-inch, wide-aspect display has shorter height than traditional screens and fits easily in tight spaces, including tray tables pinched by fully reclined seats. For the lightest travel weight possible, the Latitude X1 comes with an extremely small power adapter that is almost 50 per cent smaller than the typical Latitude power adapter. When configured with the optional six-cell battery, priced Rs 5418, users can expect up to six hours of battery life while adding only 136 grams. Latitude X1's LCD back is reinforced to counter pressure of an overstuffed bag placed under seat or in an overhead bin and the keyboard is sealed to protect against spills.

According to a recent global research study by Gartner, across all markets, the prime reason for purchasing mobile PCs by large businesses is the increasing number of travelling or field workers.

"The new class of ultra-light notebooks offers mainstream performance in an impressive form that will appeal to business travellers for whom size and weight are the primary decision criteria," said Leslie Fiering, Research Vice President, Gartner, Inc.

The price of Latitude X1 starts from Rs 95,285. It is powered by Intel's Centrino Mobile Technology, featuring the Pentium M Ultra-Low Voltage processor 733 (1.1GHz). Customers can stay connected with integrated Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g, Bluetooth 2.0 offering Enhance Data Rate wireless capability and Gigabit Ethernet. Like other Latitude notebooks, the X1 features the Trusted Platform Module (TPM 1.1) for generating and storing onboard encryption keys.
