Dell Unveils Inspiron 11z: Better Than Netbook?

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 1 comment

Is this a better netbook than most netbooks?

We've heard for some time now that Intel's CULV (consumer ultra low voltage) chips would pave the way for thin and light, but affordable notebooks. Today Dell officially unveiled the Inspiron 11z, which appears to straddle the line between netbook and notebook.

Like some of the netbooks that also offer 11-inch screens, the Inspiron 11z is similarly affordably priced starting at $399. That sub-$400 cost will buy you the following:

  • Intel Celeron 723 processor (1.2GHz)
  • 2 GB memory
  • 250 GB hard Drive
  • Built in Wi-Fi, 1.3MP Webcam
  • 11.6-inch HD (1366x768) display
  • 28WHr battery with approximately 3 hours of battery life
  • Windows Vista Home Premium WITH free upgrade kit to Windows 7

With the cheaper and faster Inspiron 11z creeping into the Mini netbook territory, it suddenly makes sense now why Dell discontinued the Mini 12.

    I bought three mini 12 for my business it was perfect though the lack of disk space. It had all the necessary stuff; bluetooth, webcam, 6-cell batery, 12 inches, very small charger ( something that other vendors should copy ) . I did not understand why Dell discontinued it just after 4 months ???
