Dell to release Yonah notebooks in February

By Justin Mann on December 21, 2005, 11:15 AM
Like NEC, Dell is also planning on releasing Yonah-based notebooks in the first quarter of next year. Aiming for February, Dell is gearing up for a launch of their Precision M90 series, Latitude D620 and Latitude D820, all Yonah based machines. Ranging from 1.66Ghz to 2.16GHz in the Precision line, they are all equipped with 667MHz FSB and likely will have a wider range of configurations not completely available yet. It is likely that we will not know prices or availability until the day of release nears. Other companies are likely to soon follow suit or reveal plans of their own as the interest in dual core mobile computing picks up.

I'd find it unlikely that any current laptop manufacturor that uses Intel chips will not be planning on releasing Yonah processor versions of their products. It just makes more sense not to announce it until you've got a firm commitment of supply dates from your suppliers. It's bad PR to announce a release date and be forced to push it back. I'm sure we'll see a lot more Yonah based laptops as we get closer to February and there's more confidense in actual delivery dates.

As I said in the NEC news item, Dell is preparing quite a big lineup of notebooks.The prices are not released for some reason, maybe because Dell wants to see how other companies price their new Yonah lineup.

When it comes to Desktops, Dell blows. But thier Inspirion series of notebooks is amazing for doing daily tasks such as Word Processing and Surfing the net. They can also play a small variety of games. Dell has the technology and they are finally putting it to use. Congrats Dell!

Duel core mobile computing is going to be installed in every new notebook that is going to be released. As all of you may know, there is fierce competion in the market of computers, and Millions of dollars being used on the advertisements and production of these new notebooks. But the question you might ask is, which company has the best bang for the buck? well, as of now, nobody really knows, but my guess is Dell has a good chance, (if they play their cards right) to lead the world in notebook computing technology.
