For people who are always on the road, lugging their beloved laptops is a non-issue. No matter how heavy the burden can get, the laptop will always be a constant companion. But what if you have to walk miles and miles with several pounds of hardware working with gravity?
That’s where netbooks come in handy. They’re small and compact. They’re light. On the downside, they’re slow, and you can’t do everything you want with them. It’s an old discussion, really, but here’s something that may help you: Dell’s new netbook that promises to give you what you need in terms of computing power.
The Dell Inspiron M102z was recently released, although rather quietly. The specs:
- 11.6 inch-WLED backlit screen
- 1366 x 768 resolution
- 1.56 kg
- 1GHz clocked C-50 APU; although a version with the E-350 APU is also available
- Radeon HD 6250 graphics
- 2GB of memory
- 320GB harddrive
- 1.3M webcam
- 802.11bgn WiFi
- Bluetooth 3.0
- Card reader
That’s not so bad for a netbook, don’t you think? If you opt for the E-350 APU model (1.6GHz), you will get HD 6310 graphics, 4GB of memory, and a 500GB harddrive. Now that is a vast improvement. Both models run Windows 7 Home Premium. You can also choose between the 6-cell and 9-cell battery, although you have to bear in mind that you will feel the added weight if you opt for the latter. The lower model goes for $699, while you have to add a hundred bucks for the better model.
With the tagline “More fun on the run,” Dell just might get the attention of users who want something light but can offer more in terms of performance. So, if you’re in the market for a light laptop, check out the new Dell Inspiron M102z. ((Dell Website))
