Dell today announced the Latitude D520 notebook, its newest entry-level notebook designed to maximize the productivity and technology budgets of small businesses and schools. The best news is that it offers Core Duo processor performance for well under $1,000.
The Latitude D520 looks a lot like the other new Latitude notebooks in design except it is not widescreen. It may seem quite similar to the D820 and D620, and in some respects it is because if offers the same sturdy magnesium alloy build, however you cannot configure built-in WWAN, no dedicated graphics is available, and you cannot configure a fast 2.0GHz + Core Duo processor. You can however configure up to a 1.83GHz Core Duo processor and up to 4.0GB of RAM. If you only need integrated graphics and do not like widescreen displays, then the D520 might actually be quite appealing for you.
What's most appealing about this new D520 is the price! On the Dell.com Small Business site right now you can get the D520 with a 1.66GHz Core Duo processor, 40GB 5400RPM HD, built-in 802.11b/g wireless, 512MB of RAM, 14.1-inch XGA screen for $699. That's a really good price.
