The Dell Latitude XT is the first Tablet PC made by Dell. It is compact and light, serving as both a standard laptop and as a tablet. You convert it by rotating the LCD display on a pivot connnectiion and folding it down onto the keyboard with the screen facing up. This is not a giant laptop but a small business notebook with a 12.1 in. wide format screen which can be used as a slate. You can get it from Dell with the 1.2 GHz Core 2 Duo chip in hard disks ranging from 40 to 120 GB. The big question is, can it withstand rough treatment? The generally accepted answer is that it it can take some. It doesn't hold a candle to the XFR say the expert reviewers. Dell's answer for this model is the Road Ready design that includes a magnesium alloy case, shock absorbing materials, and steel hinges instead of plastic. The buzz about this tablet PC is the dual mode digitizer that allows the computer to sense the stylus as it moves over the screen. To simulate the feel of using a pen, the XT pen comes with both hard and soft tips to give one the feel of writing on paper. For the person on the go but not in extreme conditions, the Latitude XT may be your solution.
