Dell Inspiron 8600c

When Intel releases a new processor, it's an odds-on bet that Dell will be among the first to market with a showcase for it, and in the case of the new <a href="http://reviews.zdnet.co.uk/hardware/processorsmemory/0,39024015,39154053,00.htm">Dothan</a> Pentium M chip, that showcase is the Inspiron 8600c. The Inspiron 8000 series is Dell's flagship range of desktop replacement notebooks for power users, and our top-end 8600c review model didn't disappoint: with its 2GHz Pentium M 755 CPU, 1GB of DDR RAM, 60GB hard disk and 128MB ATI Mobility Radeon 9600 Pro graphics chip, it turned in the best set of benchmarks we've recorded to date. At £1,349 (ex. VAT) it's no budget option, but if you need desktop-level power and features in a reasonably portable format, the Inspiron 8600c is an excellent choice.
