|From DailyTech: It's common at this time year to see many new notebooks being introduced by different notebook manufacturers for back-to-school. Not all the new notebooks produced this time year are aimed at students, as Dell has demonstrated with its new notebooks announced today.
Dell announced new Precision mobile workstation notebooks supporting new mobile Intel quad-core processors, RAID configurations, and 17-inch screens offering 100% of the Adobe color gamut. Dell is mum on hard-core details of the new Precision notebooks, but does say that the notebook will have support for more than 8GB of memory and will offer video cards with 512MB of dedicated graphics memory.
Dell also announced a new line of Latitude laptops. Dell says for business notebooks thin and light is a barrier of entry and the battery life is critically important. In addition to those factors, connectivity is very important and as well as design of the notebook. The new line of Latitude introduce technologies that haven't been seen in Latitude notebooks before including backlit keyboards, external SATA drive connections, DisplayPort capability, and USB power share.
Dell's USB power share is very similar to technology from Toshiba that allows the USB port to charge devices -- that get power from USB -- even when the computer is turned off. Dell says that some of the new Latitude systems -- when configured properly -- can get up to 19 hours of battery life.
