The latest versions of the Intel® Pentium® M processor are now available in
Dell’s corporate and consumer wireless-ready notebooks, the company announced
today.

Available immediately, both the Latitude(tm) D800, Dell Precision(tm) M60 mobile
workstation and the Inspiron(tm) 8600 can be configured with
the fastest version of the new processors, the Intel Pentium M processor 755,
featuring 2.0GHz processor speed, 2MB Level 2 cache and
400MHz front side bus. A broad range of other Dell notebooks can be configured
with a variety of the new processors, including the Intel
Pentium M processor 745, Intel Pentium M processor 735 and the Intel® Celeron® M
processor 330.

With the new processors, Intel is introducing a three-digit processor numbering
sequence announced in April this year. Processor numbers
categorized in sequences are a way to make it easier for consumers to
differentiate processors within each of Intel’s processor families. A
higher number indicates more processor features, more of a specific processor
feature, or changes in architecture.

"Businesses and individual consumers are choosing notebooks over desktop
computer systems with increasing frequency. Notebooks allow users the
flexibility to work outside traditional office environments on self-determined
schedules, and can actually extend the typical work week by a couple of hours,"
said Leslie Fiering, lead mobile analyst, Gartner. "Increased versatility and
the potential productivity gains benefit both employees and their employers."

According to a study by Gartner, The Positive Payback of Notebooks over
Desktops, while notebooks can cost more to purchase and maintain than desktops,
the premium quickly becomes an investment if the notebook enables the customer
to extend their work week by as little as two hours.
