As well as integrated connectivity such as 56K Modem, 10/100 Ethernet and USB 2.0, all this incorporated into the Dell Latitude D-Family Moonlight Silver chassis. The Latitude D500 features an easy to use design with clearly visible status indicators, convenient modular bay, interchangeable with other D-Family notebook modules, full-size comfortable and durable keyboard, and easy to use latches on the display.
