Dell Inspiron M102z laptop with AMD Fusion now available down under

Dell still doesn’t offer a notebook with AMD’s new Fusion processor in the US, but the folks at APC Magazine report that the Dell M102z is now available in Australia with a choice of an AMC C-50 or AMD E-350 dual core chip.
The base model runs $599 Australian and has 2GB of RAM, a 1 GHz AMD C-50 processor and Radeon HD 6250 graphics, while for another $100 you get a speeder 1.6 GHz AMD E-350 processor, Radeon HD 6310 graphics, and 4GB of RAM.
The Dell Inspiron M102z looks a lot like the M101z I reviewed last year. The difference is it has AMD’s latest chips which combine graphics and CPU functions onto a single chip. Overall that’s a good thing. The Dell Inspiron M101z was one of the best laptops I tested last year, and while the E-350 processor isn’t much more powerful in most respects to the AMD K125 chip in the M101z, it offers better graphics and lower power consumption.
The laptop has an 11.6 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display, 6 cell battery, and runs Windows 7 Home Premium. It has 802.11b/g/n WiFi and an HDMI output and weighs about 3.4 pounds.

AT&T MiFi 2372 review

In the week or so that I have been testing the AT&T MiFi 2372 by Novatel Wireless, it has already saved no less than three lives. First, it saved my cable guy’s life. You see, Time Warner Cable provides the worst home Internet service I have ever experienced. I can’t even think of a close second. If providing terrible home Internet service was a sport, Time Warner Cable would be on its tenth consecutive undefeated season. Forget the fact that my upload speed is capped at 60Kbps and I’m lucky if I can get half that — it has been months since I’ve gone through a full day without at least one service interruption. Months. Unfortunately, Time Warner Cable has an exclusive contract with my building so I have no choice but to endure its abysmal service. Last week, as a Time Warner Cable technician entered my home for the sixth time in two months, I realized that this certainly would have spelled serious trouble had it not been for my trusty new back up device.
