One day I was surfing Dell's website to help a friend purchase a new computer and I stumbled across this baby. I know that I did not need a new computer. I had just built myself an Athlon 1700+ XP based system earlier this year.
For the last two years I have been using a notebook as my daily base of operations. As a "roadwarrior" I like to have all of my programs, files, etc on hand at all times. I love the freedom of being able to pack up and go, wherever, and have a powerful computer at my side. I thought I had it all with my previous laptop. But I once again outgrew a computer. I was in the need of much more power. I found it with the Latitude C840.
