Dell Ships Inspiron M101z Ultra-thin Laptop
SINGAPORE, Aug. 17 2010 – Dell today announced the latest in compact computing - the ultra-portable and ultra-stylish Inspiron M101z laptop. The perfect combination of size, weight, performance and contemporary looks, the Inspiron M101z is the ideal on-the-go, easy-to-use laptop PC for today’s mobile population.
Whether a student running between classes, a mom trying to keep the kids entertained, carrying this ultrathin sub-4-pound laptop that fits easily in a handbag or backpack helps lighten the load. Despite its diminutive size, the Inspiron M101z laptop packs performance punch, nimbly stepping through everyday tasks quickly and delivering impressive stutter-free playback of streaming movies and HD videos.
Blending brains and beauty, the Inspiron M101z laptop is built around a clever hinge-forward design that moves the display closer and keeps the body rigid for improved strength and durability. It features a full-width keyboard that simplifies typing and navigation, while the attractive finishes and smooth curves make it stand out in a crowd. And with a choice of four vibrant colors, people also have the ability to add personal style to their PC.
Powered by AMD Athlon II Neo Mobile processors and integrated ATi graphics, the M101z laptop leaves comparably-sized netbooks in the dust, while achieving up to 6.5 hours of operation with its standard 6-cell rechargeable battery.
“Finally, people can get premium looks, a big display, a full-width keyboard, long battery life and a powerful processor in a laptop no bigger than most netbooks,” said Walt Mayo, Vice President and General Manager, Dell Consumer Asia. “The Inspiron M101z is an affordable, on-the-go companion that can be easily customised to handle individual needs from simple e-mailing and Web surfing to HD video playback and editing or watching a favourite TV program.”
The Inspiron M101z is available today from www.dell.com.sg and prices begin at S$699 with a one-year limited warranty standard. The Inspiron M101z comes with Syncables Desktop software that makes it easy to synch photos, music, video and data with a primary computer for quick, on-the-go access. Another helpful application pre-installed includes Skype.
