Dell Latitude E6420 ATG

Expected availability is 31st April 2011:

Dell store indicates that the shipping date for the Intel® Core™ i5-2520M (2.50GHz, 3M cache) with Turbo BoostTechnology 2.0 with 250GB/2GB is: Preliminary Ship Date: Expected to ship from 4/15/2011 edit: this date slipped from 15th to 21st April and item has now been removed from the catalogue now down as being available from 31st April

It’s interesting as one thing that was putting me off was the handle on it and that is optional and costs an extra 50 dollars…


Another point some specialist sites had got the memory specs wrong providing incorrect data on the max being 4GB. The specifications on the Dell store indicate that there are 2 slots that can each take up to 4GB meaning that the maximum memory like with the Dell E6410 ATG is also 8GB of memory maximum.
The notebooks site got this correct with a full set of specifications here.

Hoping it will be available soon in Europe… :)
