Takeaway Action. Dell promises this with its AMD/ATI combo in 13.3 inches. Unusual: DisplayPort adjacent to eSATA and HDMI. Can the Turion II Neo K625 keep up with Intel's Ultra Low Voltage processors in terms of battery life and performance?

That's the real strength of this laptop. While machines like the MacBook Air and Sony's VAIO Z-Series represent the vanguard of stylish mobile computing, their price often puts them out of reach, so laptops like the Inspiron 301z bring stylish mobility to the rest of us.

It has the looks, and it's great to use, but the M301z isn't quite the marvel its smaller cousin is. If you care little for performance it's a very nice, portable machine, but it compromises a little too much performance and features for our liking.

Comment

ATI Radeon HD 4225: Onboard graphics card (in the RS880M chipset) that is able to decode HD videos (thanks to the UVD2). Technically a slower clocked HD 4250.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

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


K625: Dual Core Entry level CPU for small subnotebooks on a performance level with the SU7300 Intel Core 2 Duo.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


13.3":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

1.831 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.
