  • Conclusion: The Dell Inspiron 11z deserves better than a 3 out of five and if Windows 7 were sitting pretty on there, then we’d add an extra point. As it is, this is a good mini-laptop with a great screen and nice keyboard that is let down in a couple of areas.
  • Pros: It may look and feel like an oversized Dell Mini 10 but this machine is all laptop. The use of Intel’s new CULV processor means you’ll find all your favourite apps load and run smoothly. Then there is the screen, which is an absolute belter with websites and video looking sharp and bright. With a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels it’ll handle HD content with no fuss and there is even a HDMI port to send said video over to your HD TV. We even like the keyboard with its f...
  • Cons: It’s not all great news as the Dell has Windows Vista pre-installed - we’d suggest making sure it comes with a free Windows 7 upgrade. However, the most disappointing aspect of this laptop is the trackpad. It’s got a nice widescreen aspect ratio to mirror the screen but it just isn’t sensitive enough. You kind of need to poke at it before it’ll respond, a bit like the police trying to move a sleeping tramp along, even then it’s does so grudgingly.

Dell Inspiron 11z Review

LAPTOP Magazine
10 December 2009
  • Summary: Dell's Inspiron 11z laptop is lightweight and attractive, but it simply costs too much for what you get. Not only does the touchpad implementation leave something to be desired, but other systems in this class offer better performance and much longer batter life for less money. Both the Gateway EC1430u and the Acer Aspire 1410 best the 11z in most benchmarks and cost $130 to $280 less, with the latter offering a better keyboard and touchpad to boot.
  • Pros: Wide range of color and design options, Very good audio quality, Decent HD video playback
  • Cons: Expensive, Below-average battery life, Oversensitive touchpad, Underside runs hot

Dell Inspiron 11z

20 January 2011
  • Conclusion: Un equipo recomendado a los estudiantes que están buscando sustituir los cuadernos por una netbook pequeña y ligera que les permita tomar apuntes y que puedan llevar todos los días a la escuela.
  • Pros: Los colores del diseño, la pantalla LED que muestra imágenes en alta definición, y además tiene un puerto HDMI para que veas imágenes o videos desde una pantalla más grande y con la mejor resolución.
  • Cons: La autonomía de la batería y podría tener un procesador que te permita reproducir videojuegos complejos y abrir más aplicaciones al mismo tiempo.
