With more power than a netbook but without the bulk of a standard laptop, CULV (consumer ultra-low voltage) processors offer a fantastic mix of portability and performance. Built from Intel’s Core Duo or Core 2 Duo architecture these power-sipping chips are finding their way into machines from virtually every manufacturer. They are more than capable of ripping through a Hulu HD show and even some light gaming. Dell’s foray into the CULV game is the Inspiron 14Z. Prices range from $650 all the way to $900 depending on how you spec it out.
I have been quite impressed with the performance of the CULV chips in the past, I’m anxious to see how Dell’s offering stacks up. Anyone out there rocking one of these?
