Reviews for the Dell Latitude 131L
Source: Trusted Reviews
There was a time not all that long ago when the idea of a Dell product, whether it be a server, desktop or notebook, shipping with an AMD processor was simply laughable. Overall the Latitude 131L is a solid performer. Business notebooks are never going to be the most exciting of things and this is no exception, but it does what it’s supposed to do with aplomb and offers plenty of value for money.

The current consumption is not higher than with Centrino-Duo-notebooks (TL-45 with ATI Xpress and Mobility Radeon X300). This means, that approximative the same battery runtime and fan functions can be expected (with this chipset). However, the performance was 20% below the T2300 (1.66 GHz) due to the lower L2 Cache (Core Duo has 2048 Kbyte shared L2 Cache). Nevertheless, the performance is sufficient.
