Dell announced the Latitude(TM) D520, its newest entry-level notebook designed to maximize the productivity and technology budgets of small businesses and schools.

Priced from U.S. $948 and sporting the power of dual-core processors, a new industrial design, a durable magnesium alloy frame and a starting weight of 5.24 pounds, the notebook delivers mobility with reliability, flexibility and performance. Customers can configure the new system with their choice of Intel(R) Core Duo(TM) or Celeron(R) M processors, 14.1-inch or 15-inch displays and Wi-Fi networking capabilities.

Business users will appreciate the dual-battery configuration option, enabling extended computing without the need for a recharge, and an integrated microphone for VoIP applications. Schools establishing Intelligent Classrooms(TM), high tech, interactive learning centers based on computers and related technology, will value the integrated IEEE 1394 port and S-video ports. The Latitude D520 can also deliver investment protection since it is designed to support the Microsoft(R) Windows(R) Vista(TM) operating system and the emerging 802.11n Wi-Fi standard.

Dell's RoadReady(TM)-branded quality and reliability testing helps ensure the notebook is adaptable and resilient-ready to operate in a variety of environments. The notebook is compatible with Latitude D-Family notebook accessories shipped since 2003, including batteries, docking stations, optical drives, and power adapters. This new system meets the requirements of the European Union's RoHS directive.
