Sub-four pound laptop packs premium style and performance in an ultra-portable PC

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 lux 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.

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.
