I would buy another identical pc from dell or ebay...if I needed another

adamsdadusa, Ebay

  • Summary: Works great,,,except for one thing. The recovery partition was not present so I cannot create a backup with the Dell Data Safe Backup software included. But, Dell said it is still under warranty and I can acquire the complete system restore disks for free from them as soon as I have submitted a change of ownership request..which is in process now. Not worried. Dell has always been excellent and this was a used pc. Rev. Dr.

Practically Perfect!

  • Summary: I think this is an underappreciated computer (but not by me!). I think of it like a Macbook Air for Windows. Perfect size & weight - 11.6" and 3lbs. Perfect for school or portable business use. HDMI and VGA ports for home use or projectors. Great LED screen. Resolution is only 1366x768, but what more do you need for this machine? It orginally had 2GB, but I upgraded to 6GB total RAM. I also changed out my hard drive to one with 7200 RPM, so it's a little snappier.

5 Stars for Dell, but only one for Amazon

C. T. Mansfield, Amazon

  • Summary: The Dell 11z-1121 is a great little netbook. In my classroom, I have used older Dell netbooks, Lenovo netbooks, and Asus netbooks. This is a great improvement. I had been using an 11 inch Macbook Air as my personal travel PC, but that recently went to my youngest daughter. Needing a replacement and on a tight budget, I looked for a less expensive replacement. The Dell 11z was my choice, and I am not dissapointed. On the pro side, it has a great screen and keyboard.

  • Excerpt: "...a black piano finish. The Dell logo is on the back of the screen. The screen is 11.6 inches and is bordered with black piano finish plastic as well. Above the screen is a tiny webcam, which is 1.3MP. The keyboard is black and there is a silver strip at the bottom where the floating touch-pad is. ~ USB and SD slots ~ This netbook has 3 USB ports and an SD card slot. I am always hooking my laptop up to my external hard drive, my ipod, my memory ...
  • Pros: a good netbook for light use, 2GB ram, 250GB hard drive, faster processor than most netbooks
  • Cons: can be slow if overworked, lost use of audio, power socket became loose

  • Excerpt: I bought this netbook in early 2010. Prior to that my other half and I each had a PC so this was the first portable ‘computer’ in our household. ~ Price and availability ~ This netbook cost me around £320.00 back in 2010 and it is now available used on Amazon.co.uk for £220.00 with Windows Vista on it. My version has Windows 7 on it. ~ Why a netbook? ~ A netbook is a smaller version of a laptop. This laptop has an 11.6 inch screen, which I don’t think is too small.
  • Pros: a good netbook for light use, 2GB ram, 250GB hard drive, faster processor than most netbooks

Good enough

  • Summary: I decided to upgrade my netbook to one with a bigger screen but I didn't want to pay to much so bought this "as new". The mouse pad is only slightly irritating to me. Occasionally the pointer will jump to the top of the screen and pressing directly on the corner of the pad in order to "click" the mouse doesn't always work but I have learned to click away from the corner a bit. So I wouldn't let the negative comments about the pad put you off.

Definitely a handy little laptop

  • Excerpt: "Dell Inspiron 11z, in my opinion is definitely a laptop worth buying, with its range of colours and light weight, how could I possibly resist. My laptop is a candy pink colour and in my experience, I have found it easy to carry about and fast working. I have had it just over a year now and it is still working top speed, although my main - and probably only - fault with this laptop is that the screws have come lose and I have therefore hard to re-screw ...
  • Pros: Fast working and portable
  • Cons: Can get damaged easily

Das kleine Dell Inspiron 11z

Treedon, Ciao
21 September 2010
  • Summary: Mein persönlicher Erfahrungsbericht des Laptops/Subnotebooks: Die Suche nach einem geeignetem Laptop erweist sich in dieser Zeit schwieriger als gedacht. Der ausschlaggebene Punkt für meinen Kauf war damals das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis. Dank einer Rabattaktion seitens Dell konnte ich dieses Gerät mit sehr guter Ausstattung sehr viel günstiger als die Konkurrenzprodukte erwerben.
  • Pros: Gewicht, Akkuleistung, Verarbeitung
  • Cons: Lüftergeräusche, Touchpad
