Reviews for the Dell Inspiron 710m

Dell Inspiron 710m Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
Overall, I'm very pleased with the choice that I've made. To be honest, I almost returned it twice - once when I heard about the launch of Dell's XPS M1210, and again when the MacBook was launched. I'm glad I decided to keep it, as the MacBook seems to be having a number of issues with heat and I wouldn't be surprised if both fall short in terms of battery life. Unfortunately it seems Dell has pulled the 710m from their lineup on the Canadian site, hopefully to be replaced by another ultraportable (though most likely only to be replaced by the XPS M1210).

Sometimes, small things can pack a big punch. The Dell Inspiron 710m measures a compact 11.7 x 8.5 x 1.5 inches, but it offers snappy performance behind its 2-GHz Pentium M 755 processor, which is complemented by 512MB of memory and a 5,400-rpm 80GB hard drive. As a result, the 710m is recommended for those always on the go who refuse to sacrifice power in the quest for a thin-and-light notebook. The 710m’s 12.1-inch screen is a widescreen model with a glossy finish that makes colors more vivid. We found this notebook to be the perfect mobile DVD player. The integrated stereo speakers sound tinny, but they’re surprisingly loud for such a small notebook. The optical drive installed in the 710m is a DVD burner, so you can create your own movies, as well.

Aside from a new color scheme, the Dell Inspiron 710m is an exact replica of its thin-and-light predecessor, the Inspiron 700m. An eminently portable laptop, the 710m is conveniently compact and stocked with a high-capacity cell; our $1,699 test unit delivered more than five hours of battery life. Dell has not updated the system's components, however, and its competitors offer more features for the money. Students, small-business people, and home users looking for a thin-and-light should check out the similarly priced Sony VAIO S series or the extremely inexpensive Averatec 3715.

Comment

Intel Extreme Graphics 2: Intel Extreme Graphics 2 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip with shared memory on Intel 852 / 855 GM, GME, GMV chipset for Centrino, Pentium 4 and Celeron based laptops. It is hardly suited for 3D-games. No Aero support.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Pentium M: With Intel chip set (855 or 915) and Intel WLAN also available with the name Centrino (name for the package).
In the comparison very fast per megahertz and very modest with weaknesses in floating point operations.
It is also available as a low voltage version with very small current consumption.


735: » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


12.1": This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Most netbooks have a tinier display. The advantage is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.9 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 12 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


Dell: Dell Inc. is a multinational technology corporation that develops, manufactures, sells, and supports personal computers and other computer-related products. Based in Texas, Dell employs more than 82,700 people worldwide (2009). In 2006, Dell purchased the computer hardware manufacturer Alienware. In most countries, the laptops are directly sold to consumers by Dell and each notebook custom-assembled according to a selection of options. Market share regarding sales of personal computers in 2007 (market research IDC): HP 18.9 %, Dell 16.4 %, Acer 9.9 %, Lenovo 7.5 %, Apple 5.7 %
