Dell's AMD Fusion-based Inspiron M102z laptop is now available for Australian customers at a starting price of $599. It's an 11.6in laptop that can be configured with either the entry-level 1GHz AMD C-50 APU or the slightly more powerful 1.6GHz AMD E-350 APU.

See reviews of other AMD Fusion-based netbooks: Sony VAIO YB Series, Toshiba NB550D, MSI U270.

Users can opt to configure the netbook with either 2GB or 4GB of DDR3 SDRAM (1067MHz), but the only storage option is a 320GB, 7200rpm hard drive. As the Inspiron M102z is an ultralight laptop, it doesn't come with a built-in optical drive, but an external one can be purchased separately.

The native resolution of the laptop is 1366x768, but as the netbook ships with an HDMI port, you can easily plug it in to a big-screen TV or monitor. The graphics processor is built in to the AMD APU and it varies depending on the model you choose: for the AMD C-50, you get AMD Radeon HD 6250 graphics, while for the AMD E-350, you get AMD Radeon HD 6310 graphics.

Dell ships the Inspiron M102z with a 6-cell, 56 Watt-hour battery that is stated to give the netbook up to nine hours of battery life, but an optional 9-cell, 90 Watt-hour battery is available, and Dell states that this can provide almost 14 hours of life.

The connectivity options of the Inspiron M102z are standard: you get the aforementioned HDMI port, as well as 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, three USB 2.0 ports, 10/100 Ethernet, VGA, an SD card reader and microphone and headphone ports.

The Inspiron M102z has a claimed weight of 1.56kg with the 6-cell battery, and is 205mm wide, 35mm thick and 292mm deep. You can check it out on Dell's Web site.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
