Im thinking abt buying a laptop. Have never owned one in past at all
so just now learning abt them.

I really do NOT want a "desktop replacement" in a laptop.... even tho
if I by a laptop it will ultimately be used as a desktop most of the
time. However.... I still do want the ability to travel with it easily
if needed.

Having said all that....Im thinking abt the 600M. But what I need to
know is if the 600M is considered an ultra portable?

If not... which Dell laptop model IS considered an ultra portable?

Thanks n advance!

I would think Dell considers the m300 has "ultra portable". However, the
m600 is a very nice laptop and considerably lighter then the 1150 or 5150.

This page should give you the info you are looking for:

Personally I'd go for the m600 over the m300 or the 1150 5150. It offers
plenty of power in a formfactor that is not too heavy but has a screen size
and other features that I'd want in a laptop.

the dell ultra portables are the latitude x300 and dimension 300m. these
are the same machine with different color trim (x300 all silver, 300m has
blue accents). they are small and light and can be taken off their media
base which has the cd and connectors for other external devices for when you
want to travel light. but these have 12.1" screens vs. the 14.1: screen of
the dimension 600m which means they are smaller and so weigh about a pound
less...

OK... point taken.

I don't know anything abt the m300 spec wise.... but will read up on
it tho.

Are you saying that the m300 might be a bit too small for your liking?

Is the 300m quite a bit smaller form factor than the 600m?

OK

Do you feel the smaller 12.1" screen size of the 300m to be TOO small
for your liking?

Would you go for the 600m over the 300m? Given you want something you
can travel with?

the inspiron 300m (aka latitude x300) is a super light machine that one can
easily commute with and take anywhere without hesitation. the inspiron 600m
is bigger and a pound heavier, but has the cd built into it... though
plenty of people would not have a problem traveling with it daily, it is by
no means an ultra portable which you were originally asking about. you
have to decide what you want, large screen or ultra portable... both are
good machines that serve different needs.
