    The Dell Latitude D620 is a 14-inch widescreen business notebook equipped with the latest Intel Core Duo processor. The D620 replaces the D610 and provides quite an overhaul in both design change and internal components. The new industrial charcoal grey and black look of the D620 conveys its strong build, which Dell calls "Road Ready", and with a slew of available built-in wireless communications this notebook is road ready in more ways than one.

    Well, prices start at $1099 for a Core Solo configuration, I got this from Dell as a loaner and I believe the price would be about $2,000 through Dell Business. They'll be up for sale in the next few hours on Dell.com

    It really is a nice machine, and I so want one. *must hide credit cards*

    One thing that bothers me is the 9 cell battery. I've never seen a laptop that has the 9 cell sticking out the front.

    I also find it a bit strange that the put a PCMCIA slot on the latitudes, but the new Inspirons have the express slot :confused: I figured dell would stay consistent and put an express slot in the latitudes.

    Putting laptops on the edge of the roofs of tall buildings is always a good idea! ;)

    Steller review! I like that Dell is able to make durable notebooks, and the looks aint bad either. The 9-cell bettery sure is wierd though. I guess it's a kind of "bonus" palm rest.

    I believe there is an error in the pic stated:

    "Pictured is the Dell D620 on the left next to a 14.1" screen ThinkPad T43, notice the lower profile of the D620 but wider body (view large image)"

    I think they nailed everyting correctly except....the speaker. Business travelers do listen to audio and video, especially in hotel rooms. Why go down to a 3 slit mono speaker when even the thinkpad has 2 speaker ports. Was there no room in the case? I am also hoping there is some sort of PCMCIA to Express Card adpater if possible coming from some vendor in the neat future. Does anyone know if the D820 will have at least 2 speaker ports?
