Review Dell Inspiron 11z Notebook

Notebookcheck
22 November 2010
  • Conclusion: The Dell Inspiron 11z is a slim, light and high quality subnotebook , which is especially useful due to its higher performance when compared to most netbooks. Thankfully the power usage is low, and the various emissions from the laptop are well under control. Useful extras, which can help the buyer use the laptop more efficiently, could be for example the multi-touch touchpad or the HDMI port .
  • Pros: Clearly higher performance than netbooks, HDMI, Small, quiet and light, Low power usage, Good worksmanship, Multi-touch function, Hardware installed in the laptop is typical for its class, The combination of portability and good performance, with Dell's familiar good quality.
  • Cons: Glossy display, Delicate lid, No VGA (important for those users who use older peripheral devices), Only moderate battery life, Difficult to upgrade the internal components

This entry-level Dell notebook offers better performance than a netbook but is only slightly bigger and more expensive

Good Gear Guide.au
25 July 2010
  • Summary: Dell's entry-level Inspiron 11z notebook has significantly more power than similar sized Atom netbooks but remains thin and light. A good display and reasonable keyboard size make it easy to use; the multitouch trackpad is our main point of annoyance.
  • Pros: Thin and light despite reasonable processing power, high resolution display
  • Cons: Poor touchpad design, glossy screen is annoying and has minor backlight issues
