Dell Latitude D430 Leak
The final details of Dell's Latitude D430 have been revealed, courtesy of the inadvertent posting of a Taiwanese product page [since pulled]. Confirming some early details, the 12-inch widescreen ultraportable jumps from last year's Core Duo to the latest 1.2GHz, ultra-low voltage Core 2 Duo and 802.11n Wi-Fi. Buyers will also be able to replace the 1.8-inch rotating hard disk with a 32GB solid-state drive for rougher conditions or extra reliability.
The cost of the system is unavailable, as is a complete list of custom-order options; Dell expects to ship the D430 to Taiwan by July 2nd and is likely to have the American version at the same time or sooner. A base configuration will ship with 1GB of RAM, a four-cell battery, and the choice of either Windows XP or Vista for those who may need legacy support. [via NotebookReview]
