If you want a reliable laptop that allows for routine workday tasks, medium-level gaming, music streaming/listening and movie-watching, the Dell Latitude D610 is an excellent option to explore. This specimen is available with 1024 MB of RAM, a Pentium 1.86GHz processor, 64 MB of video RAM(provided by the ATI Mobility Radeon X300 PCI Express x16), and an 80GB hard disk. It also includes an optical CD RW/DVD drive.
The Latitude D610 laptop is extremely durable, with excellent build quality - a feature that Dell is known for in all its laptops.

Networking options include:
The laptop's multiple ports - 4 USBs, external monitor, audio line in and line out, serial and parallel, S-video and infrared - give it a lot of flexibility where external devices are concerned. There is also one Type II PC slot for expansion. This specimen's polished black finish exudes sophistication and professionalism, making it an equally good choice for office-goers and home users alike.
