The Centrino-based Inspiron 9200 was Dell's first 17" widescreen notebook. Our review model featured the glossy and ultra sharp WUXGA 1920 x 1200 resolution display option and a 2.1GHz Pentium M processor--the fastest available at press time. There is 1GB of 333MHz PC 2700 DDR SDRAM supplied along with a 60GB 5400rpm hard disk and a fixed multiformat (including double-layer) DVD writer. The double-layer functionality is welcome as is the ability to burn both +R/RW and -R/RW media.

The 9200 features an ATI Mobility Radeon 9700 graphics controller with 128MB of DDR video memory. It has VGA-out and DVI connections.

The Inspiron 9200 supports one Type II PC Card, and includes single FireWire, Ethernet and 56Kbps modem connections. Serial and parallel ports are not available.

Wireless connectivity includes built-in Dell TrueMobile Bluetooth and Dell Wireless 1450 Dual-Band 802.11b/g modules. An SD card reader is integrated along with a single FireWire and four USB 2.0 ports.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
