The much rumored Dell Latitude E series appears that it’s close to release. This weekend the Latitude E6400 ruggedized version laptop showed up on Dell.com where it’s actually configurable and available for purchase.
As you would expect the Latitude E6400 offerings include the latest Intel Montevina processor platform, below are the options being offered:
- Intel Core 2 Duo P8400 (2.26GHz 3M L2 Cache, 1066MHz FSB)
- Intel Core 2 Duo P8600 (2.40GHz 3M L2 Cache, 1066MHz FSB)
- Intel Core 2 Duo T9400 (2.53GHz 6M L2 Cache, 1066MHz FSB)
- Intel Core 2 Duo P9500 (2.53GHz 6M L2 Cache, 1066MHz FSB)
- Intel Core 2 Duo T9600 (2.80GHz 6M L2 Cache, 1066MHz FSB)

Memory options include up to 8.0GB (only useful if you opt for Vista 64-bit), storage can be configured in the form of a ruggedized hard drive or SSD, and WWAN is offered via Verizon, AT&T and Sprint. The only graphics option with the E6400 ATG is integrated Intel graphics at this time. The Latitude E6400 ATG also has an outdoor viewable screen according to the configuration page, which is consistent with past ATG versions of the Latitude. The ATG is targeted at those that work in the field such as construction workers.
Only the E6400 ATG configuration page is available, and there are no detailed images or juicy flash based tours of the rest of the Latitude E-series on Dell.com to be found at the moment. Engadget leaked the E6400 ATG info and pictures back in March where you can get a good look at this new semi-rugged laptop.

Surely the fact the E6400 ATG is now ready to order and ship means that the rest are coming very soon…
