I received great news this week. Dell is finally releasing a convertible tablet notebook. The Latitude XT. The problem, of course, is that it is pricey $2499 for the least expensive option with a 1.06 GHz processor, 1 GB RAM, and a 40 GB hard drive.
One cool thing about it is that it comes standard with Microsoft Windows XP rather than Vista.
Equipping the mid tier model with the things that I want (120 GB Hard Drive, Bluetooth, 2GB RAM) raises the price to $3,203. These are great looking machines and I would love to have a convertible. However, when a comparaby equipped Latitude D630 costs about half of that ($1,617) I have to question the additional expense to upgrade to the XT.
On the other hand, the XT certainly is appealing. I would love to get my hands on one.
