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.
