Not a bad review but worth a look at the Viewsonic ViewBook review tomorrow. Personally the Viewsonic looks much more sexier :D
#3
Not bad! Hopefully this will be the one with the traditional touchpad, not the buttonless mixup that they used for a while.

Squelds, the Viewbook seems to be a bit more expensive... At the £300-350 mark, you have a lot more options on your hands! This 11z is great for an ultraportable that you can chuck in a bag for travel without worry about the cost!

Heat.

fyi - the 6 cell battery sticks out like a sore thumb
#5
11z has been at that price for 3-4 month. Nothing hot about this.
Go for acer, if you can afford it: http://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/Acer_TravelMate_8371_667418.html

The Viewsonic is only £289 at saveonlaptops... so yes a little bit more but not over the £300-£350 mark.

The main catch is reliability and build quality. DELL is cheap for a reason!

Speaking from experience or heresay? I've had several Dell laptops and recommended them to F & F without issue. Just ordered another for myself to complement my Inspiron 1545, an m101z (Inspiron 1120) from Outlet HUKD post recently.

I have had over a dozen laptops from Dell in the last 5 years and have only ever had 1 problem and that was sorted out quickly.
Build quality is very good in my opinion.

Yeah, my inspiron laptop is 5 years old and still running fine. It's on its 2nd battery but thats hardly dells fault.
#11
good to see all the reviews, I am collecting all the information before buying a new laptop.
#12
I've had 2 Dell PCs and one Dell laptop ... in total that's about 13 years of use (yes, I don't upgrade unless I need too!) and I've had absolutely no hardware problems whatsoever.
#13
Latitude c640 sitting next to me, nine years old, still going, and with all it's original parts!
Useful for checking IE6 compatibility for my websites.

Blimey, people always pop up in laptop threads to slander a brand!

Ever so slightly better processor, 4gb Ram and a bigger hard drive, but its running Vista.

For the work I'm guessing something like this will be used for word processing and internet mainly, 4GB ram is a waste, Vista can be a pain in the **** and is slower than windows 7.

If you need that much disk space on a laptop, maybe its the one for you, my old dell still has a 60GB hard drive, I can fill it with photo's music etc, but that's what external and NAS drives are for.

Personally I don't think it's worth the extra £100.

I got one of these during the Play.com warehouse clearout for £229.99 - fantastic product. People moan about the touch pad being particularly bad to use...but, I find it perfect, it just depends on personal preference really - the multi-touch gestures are really handy.

It's a bit of a "hybrid" - its not one of the more common 10 inch netbooks we see, nor is it a bulky 15 inch laptop. For me it is perfect for taking to university - good for basic tasks like Internet and Office - plays HD video perfectly well via the HDMI out (haven't tried 1080p content though, only 720p)

Highly recommended.

Edit: Oh and yes the 6 cell battery does stick out - but its curved so it acts as a riser when you put it on a surface and has never caused me any problems. Also, the manufacturers claim 5 hours battery life..but I get nearer 7!

Had several Dell and many other PCs and laptops, Dell are actually pretty good reliability wise. I have a Dell desktop unit that I use as a server that has been going strong for 5 years.

Have seen this advertised generally at ~£430 but typically with intel dual core processor, 4GB ram and 500GB hard drive, so would someone advise if this is really a good deal?
#20
not a bad laptop, i've had mine for 2 months and it's been OK!

6 cell battery does stick out but its kind of useful because it props the laptop up a bit.

At the time, I couldn't find much else for my £300 budget!
#21
I also have one of these. My biggest gripe being the touchpad.
So I have invested in a wireless mouse with the USB Nano adapter.
Shame its not Bluetooth enabled

The batter sticking out is a benefit, keeps it off a flat surface alowing for better typing and air flow.

you have to remember it is only £250
#22
processor is only 1.3 ghz is that not a bit crap?

or will it be ok, mainly because it would be handy if it played 720p videos
#23
Thanks for the advice people.

IMHO I cant see anything with more bangs for your buck at the £250 price point.,

Battery life is pretty good, HDMI port, full 64 bit Windows 7 (I'm going to dual boot whatever I get with some flavor of Linux which I predominantly use, but getting the best most current Windows OS is a plus) and 2GB of RAM.

The only thing that worries me is biting too soon and some mega deal coming out over Christmas, New Year.

This is the cross that the bargain hunter must bear I guess :)
