Dell begain pre-order page for the touchscreen convertible that you’ve been waiting for: the Latitude XT3. The Dell Latitude XT3 was announced all the way back in February of this year. Since then, Dell has continued to sell the Latitude XT2, a 12″ Tablet PC. The XT3 is a convertible Tablet PC with a 13.3″ display. In recent years, the larger PC manufacturers have shunned 13″ and larger Tablet PCs in favor of more mobile offerings. The 13.3-inch laptop sports an Intel Core i3, i5, or i7 processor, Windows 7, and works with a finger or stylus.
The standard 6-cell 44Wh Li-Ion can be optioned to include an extended 9-cell 67Wh. The magnesium-reinforced piece of kit starts at $1,789, unless you have it your way and toss in the optional $49 backlit keyboard or spring for the $100 outdoor-viewing display. The Latitude XT3 is expected to start shipping by September 22.
