For many people, typical laptops suffer from a common problem–they are too big and heavy. Yet the tiny netbooks don't have enough power or a large enough screen to be really efficient for serious work. With a 13.3" widescreen display, the Dell Inspiron just might be the perfect balance of performance and mobility you are looking for.
One problem many people have with Dell is that they have to wait for their computer to be built and then ship to them. Dell FastTrack solves this by offering a selection of popular desktop, laptop and netbook PCs that will ship the next day.
Right now you can order a sleek Inspiron 13 laptop for $599 (after $110 in instant savings) with FastTrack that will ship the next business day.
Despite being lightweight, this laptop has quite a bit of power packed into its small form factor. It has a 2.0 GHz dual core processor, 13.3" widescreen LCD, 3GB DDR2 memory, 320GB hard drive, Wireless-G, and an 8X slot load DVD burner (dual layer DVD+/-RW).
It is nice that it is configured with such a nice collection of features, because with FastTrack you cannot upgrade the hardware. If you want a customized Inspiron 13, you will have to bypass Fast Track and wait for the laptop to be built and shipped.
