Cons

Made slimmer and lighter at the expense of power - slower ULV Core 2 Duos run at reduced clockspeeds, poor for anything besides basic productivity application use / browsing

2 agree

thicker and less sleek than the Studio line

2 agree

no benefit over the 14" model - same technical specifications, larger, heavier, etc...

2 agree

Dell build quality leaves a lot to be desired compared to higher end manufacturers such as Lenovo or Apple

1 agrees

only available in black or cherry red
