I'm considering to buy an Inspiron 1300 with the following specs:
Celeron-M 360, 15.4" wide screen, 53Whr battery
The main question I have:
How noisy (air, fan) will this configuration be?, and what will be the
approx. time I can work with a charged 53Whr battery.
My main application will be browsing the WWW, and playing some on-line games
(chess, MahJongg) every now and then. Real video performance is not
My reference is a 3 year-old no-name laptop, with a non-mobile Celeron 1000.
This one is very, very loud (exhaust air and fan), and the CPU temperature
is above 80 C (!)
My other reference is an Inspiron 6000 (15,4 " ws, Celeron 320?). This one
is barely audible......
Summarizing: who has any experience with (fan-) noise with an Inspiron 1300
with Celeron-M 360? Or should I choose a Pentium-M (with speedstep
Many thanks. Folkert/Holland

Re: DELL Inspiron 1300 noise??
While the Celeron might be inexpensive, it is a derivative of the P4
desktop CPU. There has never been a P4 or P4M laptop that does not have
fan running constantly and the Celeron will be expected to do the same,
especially since it does not have Enhanced Speedstep.
In the long run you will be happier (IMO, YMMV) with any form of
Centrino/Pentium M laptop - less fan noise, longer battery life,
equivalent or superior performance.
