Dell’s 11.6-inch netbook, the Inspiron 11z, has been reviewed by the guys over at Notebook Review. They were fond of the form-factor and build quality and feel that the screen size and resolution (1366 x 768) is a great combination for a netbook. They also found the keyboard to be quite comfortable.
However, this was let down by a very poor touchpad, in fact it was one of the worse they’ve used. They also found that the Celeron processor’s performance was below expectations and slower than Intel’s Atom CPU. However, this was made up the much better integrated performance of the X4500 GPU and GS45 chipset. A small standard battery rounded off a device that they could just not recommend.
