The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

Dell has upgraded its 'take the rough'n'tumble' Latitude 2100 netbook, upping the machine's model number to 2110 and giving it a top-of-the-range Atom CPU.

The processor in question is the 1.83GHz N470, and it's accompanied by 1GB of 800MHz DDR 2 memory and either a 16GB SSD or a 160GB HDD, depending on which model you pick.

Dell's Latitude 2100: now with Atom N470

In each version, the 10in, 1024 x 600 display - a touchscreen if you're buying for a school - is driven by the CPU's on-board GPU, the GMA 3150. 802.11n Wi-Fi is part of the package, but there's a choice of OS: Linux, Windows XP, Windows 7 Professional or Windows 7 Starter.

The 2110 has appeared on Dell's US website, but it has yet to pop up over here. US prices start at $389 (£259), but there's no word yet on transatlantic pricing. ®
