Are you a fancy suit, known to occasionally dabble in the fine art of scribbling? Have a seat bud, because Dell’s gone and put up a pre-order page for the touchscreen convertible that you’ve been waiting for: the Latitude XT3. When we last espied the drop-top in February, we came away mighty impressed with its spiffy 13.3-inch dual-digitizer display, which recognized the attached stylus in addition to three of our meaty digits. We also liked the inclusion of the Core i3 — upgradeable to an i5 or i7 — which packs a punch, unlike the miserly Core 2 Duo’s found in its predecessors. The magnesium-reinforced piece of kit starts at $1,789, unless you have it your way and toss in the optional $49 backlit keyboard or spring for the $100 outdoor-viewing display. We’ll take ours with both, and with a ship date of September 22nd, you’ve got plenty of time to get a customizin’ at the source below.
