Dell Latitude Z 600 up on sale, quotes $1799 with online discount
Empty your coffers, live like a king. That's the bottom line we place on Dell's Latitude Z 600 flagship laptop, up for grabs now. And the reference made to royalty seems apt considering the strong punch that this temptress packs in - Core 2 Duo 1.4GHz SU9400 CPU, 2GB of RAM, 64GB SSD, Intel's GMA 4500MHD integrated graphics, 802.11a/g/n WiFi, optional WiMAX, optional mobile broadband connectivity, Bluetooth, an Ethernet LAN port, two USB ports, optional wireless USB, a 4-cell battery (rated for up to 4hrs runtime, there's an optional 8-cell pack that you can get to double it) and 8x slot-loading DVD burner.
Now take a deep breath and continue with the beauty's external stats. Being touted as the world's "thinnest and lightest 16-inch laptop", it weighs just 4.5 pounds and is a little over 1/2 inch thick. The Latitude Z 600 boasts a 1600 x 900 LCD display, and a 2MP web camera with face recognition and business card reading functionality. To me, the most alluring asset is perhaps its optional wireless inductive charging stand that allows you to eliminate cord clutter altogether. At an extra cost of $400, however. Speaking of which, the Dell Latitude Z 600 is selling at $1,799 after a $200 rebate, secure with a 3-year warranty.
Better let all your well-wishers know your inability to make any significant monetary contribution to their lives until your next lottery win. Or until you muster the guts to ignore this enchantress. Whichever's earlier.
