. Dell claims that the Latitude XT is the industry’s only sub-four-pound convertible tablet with pen and capacitive touch capability. It is touch sensitive, but does not require any pressure on the keyboard. It also comes with advanced digital palm rejection technology which prevents inadvertent contact that disrupts pen input.
Other features of the Latitude XT include an optional media base for docking and optical media, full-size keyboard with dual pointing, up to 64 GB2 solid state drive and up to 120 GB2 hard drive. There is an optional battery slice designed to provide up to 9.5 hours of battery life. The tablet has Intel Core 2 Solo and Duo ULV processors and ATI Radeon X1250 UMA integrated graphics.
