Dell to release low-cost Latitude

Dell Computer Corp. is set to release a low-cost model in its Latitude notebook family, as well as announcing the availability of a combination CD-RW and DVD internal drive on all Latitude notebooks on Monday, according to a source familiar with the company's plans.

The Latitude family is Dell's line of notebooks aimed at the corporate market. Currently, Dell is trying to phase out its entry-level Latitude CPt notebook, which features a 600MHz Mobile Celeron from Intel Corp. The new Latitude is thought to be another step in phasing out the CPt, which starts at US$1,349, according to information on the company's Web site.

Dell is also expected to launch a combination CD-RW (compact disc-rewritable) and DVD (digital versatile disc) Monday, available for all Latitude notebooks currently being shipped, the source said.
