Dell Introduces AMD-Powered Inspiron M301z Ultraportable
The 13.3" widescreen machine ships with an HD display panel (1366x768), an AMD RS880M chipset with SB820 south bridge, integrated ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4225 graphics,, up to 4GB of DDR3 memory, Windows 7 Home Premium or Home Basic (64-bit), built-in speakers, a standard 320GB hard drive (7200RPM), 6-cell battery, 1.3MP webcam, 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, Bluetooth v2.1 and a Kensington lock slot. There's also HDMI-out a 7-in-1 card reader, audio jacks, two USB 2.0 ports, Ethernet, a mini-DisplayPort output and a starting weight of just 3.89lbs.
Right now, the machine is only listed on Dell's Singapore website, but it should be available in other markets shortly. Pricing is expected to start around the $1000 mark, which--for an ultraportable as well-equipped and striking as this--isn't that unreasonable.
