Reviews for the Dell Inspiron M301z

80% Dell Inspiron M301z laptop computer
Source: Computer Active English
Netbooks are great for web browsing and other simple tasks, but their slow performance and miniature keyboards can be frustrating. A 13.3in laptops such as Dell's Inspiron M301z will usually offer better performance while still remaining reasonably small and portable. The compact chassis and lightweight design impressed, but battery life was disappointing

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.

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.

1.6 kg:

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