Dell Latitudes go Penryn

Dell on Friday quietly updated its Latitude range to add Intel's 45 nanometer Penryn-era Core 2 Duo architecture as an option. The 14-inch D630 and 15.4-inch D830 can both be custom-fitted with the faster processors and have the choice of either a 2.5GHz or 2.6GHz Core 2 Duo on top of existing 65 nanometer chips. Both Penryn options offer the full 6MB of Level 2 cache reserved for the high-end chips as well as the improved battery life that comes with the smaller, cooler design.

The two pro systems otherwise appear to remain unchanged outside of prices. Either Latitude starts just below $1,400 with a 2GHz, previous-generation Core 2 Duo, 1GB of memory, an 80GB hard drive, and built-in Intel graphics. Adding the Penryn processors contributes $130 to the price for the 2.5GHz processor and $390 for the 2.6GHz edition. [via Engadget]
