Review Dell Inspiron M101z Subnotebook


The Lady in Red. From Dell comes the small 11.6" AMD subnotebook that leaves netbooks with Intel Atom processors out in the cold. Is the Dell Inspiron M101z subnotebook the sought-after answer to weak netbooks or simply another product in Dell's...

Good Performance (Office), Comfortable Keyboard, Modern Design, HDMI-Output, Adequate Battery Life, Speaker System, The design, the available color schemes, the good performance with Windows 7, adequate battery life and the available ports

Screen Glare, Few Accessories Included, Heat and Noise, Case Prone to Scratches, Better emission values (noise, temperature), a matt 11.6" display, choice of color at no additional cost

Dell Inspiron M101z


The $580 Dell Inspiron M101z is just big enough for me to use comfortably (my gigantic hands are like bear paws); and yet at 11.5 by 8.1 by 1.4 inches, it's small enough to slip into most bags.

Great keyboard and touchpad ; Powerful for its class

Somewhat pricey for its size ; Rather short battery life

Worth the cost if you want a small machine with a great keyboard.

Dell Inspiron M101z Review


These days the market certainly isn't lacking AMD-powered ultraportables, but the Dell Inspiron M101z is among the best models we've tested. It has a cooler look than the ThinkPad X100e while offering better performance and slightly longer battery...

Sleek design with multiple color options, Comfortable keyboard and touchpad, Strong audio quality, Good graphics performance for price

Battery life shorter than Intel competition, Below-average Wi-Fi performance, Runs a bit warm

Dell Inspiron M101z review


We've been having a hard time figuring out what to call the recent influx of 11.6-inch laptops -- you know, the ones which are slightly larger and more

Solidly built ; Great keyboard, touchpad and speakers ; Fast performance, graphics

Thicker than other 11.6-inch laptops ; Weak battery life ; Review unit covered in pink

Dell Inspiron M101z


The Dell M101z's full-size, chiclet-style keyboard ranks among some of best in the 11-inch form factor. The keys are widely spaced apart, so that they don't feel as cramped as those found in the Alienware M11x (Core i7). The Lenovo X100e has a slightly...

Very nice keyboard. Excellent navigating components. Fast hard drive. Lightweight. HDMI included. Plays back 1080p HD clips beautifully. Very good speakers for a little laptop

Performance finished in the bottom. Battery life is not as impressive as its CULV counterparts

Though its size is the same as that of a netbook, the Dell Inspiron M101z is more powerful, though it falls short against its CULV counterparts.

Dell Inspiron M101z Review – Laptop Power in a Netbook’s Frame


The netbook fad is largely over. The tiny laptops that the public was so enamored with less than a year ago no longer dancing in the spotlight of mainstream news articles. Any text devoted to them is usually centered on arguments over the iPad's impact...

Dell Inspiron M101z Laptop Review

Dell Inspiron M101z review


This is usually the part of the review where I spell out the specs of a new laptop and explain how it fits in with other recent machines from the PC vendor. But I want to get something out of the way first: The Inspiron Mini M101z is the best budget...

Dell Inspiron M101z Notebook - Performs Well But, Worth Your Money?


Of late, we've been seeing quite a few netbooks and at first glance, it looks like the Dell's M101z also falls in the same category. However, Dell claims it to be the size of the netbook, with the performance of a notebook. The M101z is basically aimed...

The M101z is priced at Rs. 29,900, which is probably one of the cheapest price brackets for a notebook. However, you have better performing notebooks like the IdeaPad Z570 which can score way better in performance and will only cost you a few thousands...

Dell Inspiron M101z review: An 11.6in ultraportable laptop that's affordable and useful for basic tasks

Small and light, good keyboard and touchpad, HDMI, decent performance, good battery life

Screen is too glossy, screen contrast isn't great, screen's lowest brightness level is still too bright

The Dell Inspiron M101z ultraportable laptop is small and light and offers decent performance for everyday tasks. It's the type of notebook you should consider if you want something that's about the same size as a netbook, but which offers better...
