Dell's business ultraportable, the Latitude D420, is getting a slight bump and a new model number soon, but those hoping for something a bit more cutting edge will have to look to other laptop manufacturers to get Santa Rosa happy. As spotted on the Dell Taiwan site, the upcoming D430 will be out July 2nd, and sport new Core 2 Duo U7600 and U1400 processors. There's also a new option for the Intel 4965 802.11n wireless card, and the SSD option is playing a bit more of a featured role this time around, but otherwise Dell is playing things pretty safe and leaving well enough alone with most of the chassis and internals. We'll see if that pays off for them soon enough.
