There’s a rumor just leaked over at Gizmodo that Dell is coming out with a new laptop. According to their “tipster”, their latest is the Latitude 2100 “Welsh” 10.1-inch netbook.

Not too much is known about it yet obviously, but it is supposed to sport a 1.6GHz Atom processor, and up to 2GB RAM. It also is said to come with an optional SSD drive, three USB ports, an Ethernet port, SD/MMC slot, and 802.11 a/g/n. It’s also got Bluetooth and options for three and six cell batteries. Rumor also has it there just may be touchscreen…although that isn’t confirmed. They’re supposed to weigh less than three pounds, so it won’t weigh down the bookbag.

Now, the fun part for the kiddies? The colors. Get this…you’ve got School Bus Orange, Red Apple, Blue Ribbon, and what looks to be Chalkboard Black.

So, if the report is true, they are due to hit the shelves this May for just under $600. Just in time for a graduation gift to send junior off to college….or…for summer school if he didn’t quite make it.

    These laptops look bulky and tacky. Dell seems to have understood their mistake with the Dell Insperion 10 though — they now have a maximum memory capacity of 2GB. I think the touchscreen is the most interesting part. Microsoft has announced that Windows 7 will have built-in multi-touch compatibility, so if you have a computer that supports that (aka, a touchscreen), then you're golden. I'm going to have to give the rumor the benefit of the doubt in this case. ^_^

    P.S. – the colors are atrocious. If I see one of those "School Bus Orange" laptops, I cannot be held responsible for my actions. School buses aren't even orange! They're yellow! >_>
