Dell D630 Details Leak
More concrete details about Dell's upcoming Latitude D630 have surfaced, European resellers say. The 14-inch notebook will be based on Intel's upcoming Santa Rosa with the attendant faster system bus and integrated graphics, claim sources, but should also function as a showcase for the latest in other technology. In addition to the solid-state drive option released in April, the portable should also have the option of hybrid hard drives with a flash-based cache for cutting down boot times and overall responsiveness. Faster 802.11n Wi-Fi will be an option along with expansion up to 4GB of RAM.
Release dates and specific configurations were noticeably absent as part of the revelation. However, the D630 is likely to ship in mid-May as competition for HP's new line as well as other Santa Rosa-based notebooks, and with selling prices close to those of the outgoing D620. [via Laptoping]
