Dell tweaks Latitude laptop for the great outdoors

— 11:11 AM on January 17, 2007

A new notebook has joined Dell's Latitude business lineup, but the machine isn't intended for white-collar executives. On the contrary, the new Latitude ATG D620 is Dell's first semi-rugged notebook designed for users in the military, construction sites, police or emergency services, and other conditions not very well suited to run-of-the-mill notebooks. Dell says the ATG D620 meets military standards for resistance to vibration, humidity, and altitude. The ATG also has a spill-resistant keyboard, shock-mounted hard drive, glass-covered display, port covers, and high-durability paint. You also get a display with a relatively high luminosity of 500cd/m² to allow for better viewing outdoors.

Despite its rugged exterior, the ATG D620 still packs some pretty decent hardware: Core 2 Duo processors up to 2.33GHz, as much as 4GB of DDR2 RAM, up to 80GB of shock-mounted storage, a 14.1" wide-screen display with a 1280x800 resolution, and Intel GMA 950 integrated graphics. The notebook is already available from Dell's Federal online store for $2,818.72, although Dell says the price can go as low as $2,499.
