4GB ram option
820 looked like it had both trackpoint(eraser head) and touchpad
Some kind of call home when stolen option (might just be a corporate thing)
Bigger battery options on 620 and 420 than before.
Black and white color scheme
That's all I can think of
D620 has an optional 256MB hypermemory Quadro FX 110M.
The fingerprint reader is optional and is positioned between the trackpad buttons... weird place.
Both the 620 and 820 have trackpoint and trackpads.
They have a security feature (I think it's optional) that allows GPS tracking if stolen because the code is embedded in the bios and will be copied back to the hard drive even if the hard drive is wiped. Sounds kind of cool but when was the last time you had a laptop stolen.
Lighter and thinner is the best news to me... the 810 was a beast. 820 supposed to be 6.1 lbs and the 620 supposed to be 5 lbs with battery and optical drives installed.
The hot feature for me is the availability of 1440 X 900 res on the 620. This definitely makes this the best alternative for a business 14" widescreen laptop. I don't know of anyone else that has it?
Also, they added a switch (external) to control all wireless connectivity, and they will be adding their own broadband WAN support next year. I think it's through Cingular's 3G network, but the nice thing is you'll be able to order it from Dell and can set it up yourself when you get your laptop. Now, that's the way it should be!
I'm excited and can't wait to order...
