Dell Inspiron 11z reviewed – let down by touchpad

September 1, 2009 at 10:57 pm

Dell Inspiron 11zDell’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.

    This form factor could be the killer device for holiday 2009. Too bad that Dell elected to use the Atom vs. more powerful alternatives and put such a shoddy pointing device on it.

Got something to say?
