Okay, so here's the rundown; Forbes.com (via Engadget) thinks the recession is close to an end. And so does Dell. That's why they're gearing up to start producing a fantastically expensive laptop designed for corporate use.

As the recession dies, businesses will start to look at finally updating their now last-generation technology. No high-level executive wants to be caught without tons of expensive gear, which is exactly what the Dell Latitude Z is being built to be. It'll have a 16" screen, an Intel processor, and "advanced wireless capabilities" that -may- include wireless charging. There is no price info yet, but Forbes notes that it should be a "good deal" more than $1,100.
Now I love overpriced techno-wizardry as much as the next person, but the Latitude Z sounds a little ridiculous to me. We're talking about a (most likely) $2,000+ laptop. It's not a CULV, so it's going to have low battery life. It'll have no touchscreen, and its coolest feature appears to be wireless charging.

If these fancy rich executives want a hellaciously expensive computer, they should go all out on it. Get a capacitive OLED touchscreen with multitouch, a couple hundred GB SSD, and a 16 cell battery with a big fancy solar panel stuck to the back of the machine. THAT'S how you pimp out a laptop. Sure, it'll cost a good $4-5k, but that's the price you pay to look fancy. If any wealthy executives want to throw money at me by way of thanks, feel free to contact me in the comments.
