Dell Latitude Z600: Thin and Light at 16

Dell’s new 16-inch Latitude Z600 laptop is not only as thin and light as can be but also comes with some pretty nifty features not normally seen in its category.

This thing is like half an inch thin (0.57″) and made for mobile computing.


Dell Latitude Z600
16″ display screen @ 1600×900 pixels
Intel Core 2 Duo 1.4GHz
64GB Solid State Drive
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
Gigabit LAN
2MP webcam
Multi-touch trackpad
Backlit keyboard

The best feature is Latitude ON, a separate instant-boot OS powered by Texas Instrument OMAP SoC with 512MB Flash ROM and another WiFi. Dell customized the OS to have email, browser, VPN, and Citrix clients.

The docking station is also cool (pictured above) as it allows the laptop to be charged wirelessly (induction charging). Weighs 4.5lbs and gets up to 12 hours of battery life in normal work mode. Price starts at $1,999.

    When you receive your replacement device, there will be instructions in the box on how to activate and assemble your device, and how to package your original device for pre-paid return shipment. You will receive a reconditioned base unit that will not include the back, battery or any other removable parts . You will receive your device in (Standard) – up to five business days (no cost), or (Priority) – up to two business days ($12 fee billed to your account). If your device has any data or memory cards, please remove those prior to returning the device. Any charges associated with the exchange process will be applied to your monthly bill. You will also need to save your phone numbers & contacts to the SIM card before placing the SIM card in your replacement device. Any additional data such as emails, texts, pictures, etc. will need to be saved to a memory card or backed up to your computer so they can be uploaded to your replacemecent device. Have you already saved your contacts to your SIM card, or would you like me walk you through how to do this?

    Basically a more powerful netbook ~_~ I hope the advertised 12 hours battery life is true given it doesn’t use a low-powered Atom.

    CD-R King was selling a SSD for P5,800 rated at 64gig.

  10. Shux…looks good minus the hefty price. :S

  11. Calvin says:

    ICDeaDPiPoL, i won’t classify this as a netbook because of it’s 16″ screen.

    I think the instant-on feature will be common in notebooks in the future. right now may mga motherboards na may separate OS (usually linux) to do quick boot but with limited functionality (browsing, video, word, etc.).

  12. Darren says:

    so this is the next generation of Adamo? manufactured by Foxconn?

  13. Ric says:

    I wonder when these would hit the Dell outlet. That way, it would be more affordable

  14. Ric says:

    What’s interesting here is the Latitude ON uses an ARM CPU independent of the Intel CPU which should help prolong the battery life further. Other solutions like the ASUS Expressgate still use the main CPU on the second boot option.

    Overall, I think the technology packed in this thing is really impressive and should be made available to mainstream notebooks soon.

  15. Narwin says:

    Hi, just an inquiry. Can you help me find an outlet or website that retails Dell here in the Philippines, specifically Metro Manila. I’ve been looking for a DELL CPU. Thanks!

  16. Finally, a good article about this topic! I can’t believe I had to go thru like 20 blogs just to locate this good article. All their information jointly even now can’t equal the information of this post. I have learned a good deal and will bookmark your site. Keep up the good work!

    I just got my Dell Latitude Z-600 yesterday.. Parehas lang din ang specs halos except mine has:

    Intel Core 2 Duo 1.6GHz
    4GB DDR3 RAM
    Samsung 256GB SSD PB22

    …out of the box.

    One thing I like on this notebook is the speed. It’s running Windows 7 Professional and you’ll be on your desktop from complete turned off at 30.65seconds! That’s fast! Hindi sya mainit unlike my previous Asus G51J-3D na pwede magroast ng sausage sa vent grill.. hehehe. I haven’t had a chance to try the Latitude ON yet. Battery life sa ngaun Im getting average of 3hours on single charge, yung claimed 12hours ata pag running the linux sa Latitude ON.. kase it’s like 2computers in one.. the Latitude ON has its own processor and RAM too. I wonder how they stuffed everything inside this which is thinner than most netbooks. Ganda din ng feature na edgetouch kase ginawang touch sensitive and right side bezel ng screen.

    Price starts at $1,999 for the basic configuration, intel C2D 1.4GHz, 64GB SSD and 2GB RAM. Pero marami naman option sale inclusion like this 256GB SSD and 4GB RAM at a price.. Total I paid for this one is..

    Php59,040.00 :D

    Ang di ko lang ma-gets now is, why is it that i have a sim card slot inside behind the battery bay. Para saan kaya yun.. Hindi naman nakalagay sa specs na 3G sya or what.. I installed WWAN driver din pero di ko rin mapagana nung nilagay ko dun ung simcad na galing sa portable modem ko..
