Yes, you can configure the Latitude D series with a Dell TruMobile 1300 WLAN
card, which is 802.11b/g.  There is no cost to move to this card from the
Intel 802.11b only card.

For an additional price ($70) you can get a TrueMobile 1400 WLAN which is
a/b/g.

All three are internal miniPCI cards.

The wireless was one of my concerns - is there anything on the market yet
with built in 802.11g?

Centrino is really a package of options.  It's more of a marketing thing,
than a specific chip.  You'll find that a lot of laptop manufacturers use
the Intel Mobile processors that the Centrino package includes, but forgoe
the 802.11b(?) that Intel provides.  The Intel provided wireless is the
older, slow technology.    I hear that Intel will be revving it to 802.11g
in the next few months.  If you don't need the Centrino logo, opt for a
manufacturer that uses the same processors, but provides the faster
wireless.

What are your thoughts / experience on the Centrino based Laptops? Looking
to get a bunch of our mobile users new machines and not too sure if I should
look at Centrino / P4 / AMD processors. The users are in and out of the
office about 50% of the time. Not too heavy CPU intensive while connected on
site. Most of the users will also install the odd game here and there.

Thanks
