    Latitude Z: this is what a heavily-engineered Dell laptop looks like

    Love the color.
    Pricey, but desirable. ;D

    As far as Windows-allied computer companies go, it seems Dell is trying the hardest to answer Apple's design-heavy approach tit-for-tat. The Adamo took on the Air, and now the Latitude Z600 is looking to be the laptop for business users thanks to what's going on inside and out.

    We'll let the pictures speak for the design. As for the meat of the machine, Dell's got a few tricks. The most impressive? No wires. You can buy a $200 inductive charging pad that'll juice up the Z while it's resting atop it. It's also got built-in support for wireless connectivity, and, after spending another $200 on a wireless hub, the Z will be able to talk to USB, video and sound devices without having to plug them in. It's got a couple of other bells and whistles, too, such as a quick boot environment where you can check your email without having to boot into Windows, and a FaceAware system that uses your webcam to know when you leave and locks your laptop.

    It's a high-end laptop that's priced as such, starting at $2,000. For that, you get 16" inches of screen and 4.5 pounds of laptop.

    I think I'll be getting a desktop next.
    Laptops are overpriced...

    I wonder what the battery life is, people always seem to forget about that...

    really? They're cheaper than ever now.
    My lenovo laptop cost $1200 last year, with a 2.5ghz core2duo, 3gb ram, 160GB 7200RPM drive, dedicated graphics.
    For the smae price you can get even better now.

    Me 3... they last about 2 weeks longer than their warranty.
    The true measure of a man is what he'd do knowing he'd never be found out.

    My office computer(gateway) crashed a couple weeks ago, 1 day after the 3 year warranty expired.
    > Best computer I ever had though.

    Fair enough, I need to get myself a 24 inch LCD monitor or something though.
