I do my school work on a 13" and think it's too big... I don't know how big people want laptops to be. They are supposed to be small and portable, not these giant 17" monsters.
I'm kind of pissed though. I bought my XPS M1330 about 8 months back. Had I known that there was a M11x coming I would have waited for that. I paid ~$1250 for my XPS and a fully built M11x on Dell's website would have run me $1450. The difference between the 2 laptops is minimal, but I did want a smaller laptop... Oh well.
Granted, my processor would have taken a hit. I would have gone from a 2.5 GHz Core 2 Due processor to an overclocked 1.6 GHz Core 2 Duo. I would have gotten 4 more GB of ram, but I don't think I would need 8 GB. Any reason why the M11x's processor is worse? I'm not saying it's bad, but the M1330 had the option for a better processor, so why don't they give the M11x an option too? Maybe they were trying to make it the laptop cheaper for consumers?
