Deal: Corporate laptop with layoff-proof pricing

If you are looking for a corporate-class laptop but don't want to pay corporate-class prices, Dell has a special offer going on for the next few days. You can get the Latitude E5400 Laptop for $700 after the promotional instant savings are factored in. Not bad!

So what are the specs at this price-point you ask? Well, here is the listed configuration:
  • Intel Core2 Duo T7250 processor (2.00GHz, 2M L2 Cache, 800Mhz FSB)
  • 14.1 inch Wide Screen WXGA LCD Panel (mobility vs power trade-off winner?)
  • 2GB, DDR2-800 SDRAM with 2 DIMMS
  • 160GB Hard Drive, 5400RPM
  • dvd burner
  • Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD (corporate, not extreme gaming)
  • Dell Touchpad
  • Dell Wireless 1397 802.11b/g Mini Card
  • 6-cell battery
  • Vista Basic SP1 (most lightweight Vista option)
  • three year Limited Warranty and three year mail-in service


But remember, as with all things Dell, you can customize it to your liking, although you can't obviously put a 64-core CPU inside. Or can you? ;-) And by customizing, it doesn't always mean the price goes up, you can remove features that you don't want or don't, and then the price goes DOWN!
