Dell Inspiron M101z: More than a Netbook, Less than a Notebook

[NEW GADGET] Sometimes, you know it's a good deal when you see one. Dell Inspiron's latest addition, M101z, will probably come under that category.

Dell Inspiron M101z ticks several of my checklist for a good notebook (yep, this is not netbook, actually it is hardly a laptop too and so it is know as "Ultra Thin notebook".)

1. Decent options of hardware configuration. Given the relatively low cost of computers these days, consumers usually go for some tune up specification.

2. Starting at S$699, there is no reason why you should go for a poorly spec netbook.

As positive as I sound, it is ultimately up to individuals to say if they need a portable computer that has a relatively small screen and pack in just about 4 hours of battery life. The bar has been raised for me, in terms of battery. My iPad can go on for the 4 days on one charge. The comparison must be of course base on the fact that I can do the things I want to do on both machines, mainly web browsing and typing emails and articles.
