CNET Editors' Rating

The Good Wide, high-resolution screen; fast processor; very well outfitted; modest price.

The Bad Gigantic and very heavy; extremely short battery life; high resolution makes for small, difficult-to-read text.

The Bottom Line The Inspiron 9100 is a portable (although barely), high-performance multimedia station that's powerful enough to compete with the fastest laptops on the market.
