DELL Computer has launched its fastest notebook to date - the Dell Latitude XPi 120. It is the first notebook in the Dell range to run on a 120-MHz mobile Pentium processor. Available in one model - the P120ST (for SVGA TFT colour screen), its processing speed is about 30 per cent better than the recently released P90. The P120 is the latest member to join the award-winning family of Dell Latitude XPi notebooks based on Intel's new lower battery consumption mobile Pentium processor. It is available with Intel's 75MHz, 90MHz and 120MHz mobile Pentium processors. The Latitude XPi comes with eight MB of RAM, a 10.4-inch Dual Scan colour screen (in 75, 90 and 120 MHz versions), a 10.4-inch active matrix (TFT) VGA colour screen (75 MHz), an SVGA TFT colour screen (90 and 120 MHz), and a removable 420-MB hard drive which can be upgraded to 1.2GB. According to Phillip Kelly, vice-president and managing director of Dell Asia Pacific Group, the Latitude XPi was developed to meet executive needs for dependability, in terms of power, communications and speed, in a notebook. He said: 'Dell's goal in bringing Pentium processor performance to our Latitude XPi family was to offer our customers greater productivity without asking them to compromise price or features. We have realised that goal by striking a balance between price, battery life, speed, weight, screen size and thermal management.' The XPi also includes 256KB L2 external cache memory.
