Dell Latitude XT thinnest and lightest 12.1-inch convertible tablet PC

Dell Latitude XT tablet PC is the thinnest and one of the lightest 12.1-inch convertible tablets available. It is also the brightest in its category with an optional daylight viewing panel.

Capacitive technology senses the touch of a finger with no pressure required for the system to recognize input. It is also the forerunner to emerging multi-touch capabilities that allow the use of more than one finger for tasks such as zoom and repositioning a picture, to name a few. Other touch features available on the Latitude XT include: Accuracy and speed – touch response times on the Latitude XT are faster than the Lenovo X61T1.

The digitizer technology on the Latitude XT is rated up to 10 times more durable than competing resistive touch digitizer technology. The Dell Latitude XT system starts at $2,499 and Dell will begin to take orders and ship the Latitude XT by the end of the year. Energy Star 4.0-compliant configurations of the Dell Latitude XT will be available in January 2008.
