Dell today launched its latest notebook: the Inspiron M101z. The M101z features an 11.6" LED-backlit screen running at 1366x768 and is powered by a single or dual-core AMD Athlon II Neo processor. This is backed by up to 4GB of memory and integrated graphics. Ample storage is provided by a 320GB hard drive. Bluetooth 3.0 (optional), 10/100 LAN, a card reader, 1.3 megapixel webcam and 2x1.5W speakers allow easy connectivity. The notebook runs on a 6-cell battery and will be available in four colours: Clear Black, Peacock Blue, Tomato Red and Lotus Pink. The Dell Inspiron M101z is pre-installed with Windows 7 64-bit and is available immediately from £379 (around US$588) in the United Kingdom.
It looks as though AMD is slowly gaining a foothold in what was once exclusive Intel territory. The meaning for you and me the consumer? More choice and lower prices.
