The new Dell Latitude X300 is an ultra light notebook, weighing just 1.32 Kg, meant for highly mobile users. The 0.8” high notebook is powered by a Pentium M 1.2 GHz processor and has 256 MB RAM and 30 GB HDD. The screen size is 12.1” and supports a maximum resolution of 1024*768. Other things include a modem port, LAN, USB, FireWire and infrared.

But the notebook does not have place for a CD/DVD drive. So you have to buy an external one.

In terms of performance, Business Winstone and Content Creation Winstone results were 45.7 and 68.7, respectively. These scores are comparable to a P4 2.0 GHz. In terms of graphics performance, the results were very good with 99.3 fps at 640*480*16 and 44.7 at 1024*768*32 resolution. These are very good for on-board graphics and can be attributed to the Intel 855GM chipset. The notebook battery lasted for about 2 hours and13 minutes, which is slightly low, considering it has a Pentium M processor. Recharging time was fine, taking an hour and a half.

Overall, a good-looking, light weight notebook, with decent performance. You may need to buy an extended battery pack for longer backup. The price of Rs 1,13,844 is heavy, but then as notebooks go lighter in weight, the price becomes heavier.
