Review Dell Inspiron M301z Subnotebook


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?

Application performance, Fast hard disk, Good touchpad, Large keys, HDMI, DisplayPort, eSATA, Optional USB burner, Fast eSATA port on a subnotebook. That's unusual

Short battery life, Loud fan, Susceptible for scratches, Reflective TFT display, Battery life and even more battery life. A 5600 mAh battery could have brought wondrous results
