Price-wise and size-wise, the Latitude D820 sits atop the thin-and-light 14″ widescreen D620 and the budget oriented 14″ standard-aspect D520 in the Latitude lineup.
The Latitude D820 is equipped with the latest Intel® Centrino® Duo Mobile Technology: an available dual-core Intel® Core™2 Duo processor, choice of Intel 945 GM or 945 PM chipset and Intel PRO/Wireless 9345 Wi-Fi® mini-card.
These components ensure that you get the best possible mobile performance while using less battery power than previous-generation technologies.
