- LCD does not open to a full 180 degrees.
Have fun . This is a great deal if combined with the Amex twitter deal. Otherwise, I am a bit more partial to the Samsung Princeton because of its SandyBridge CPU.

The inspiron 11z model is introduced in 2009. The processor could be newer, but the laptop is introduced in 2009. Please do more research on inspiron 11z. The customer review for this model on dell.com starting from Aug. 2009.
It doesn't matter if that model was introduced in 2009, because the CPU, chipset and GPU in this aren't the same as what it came with back in '09. You could take the same model and just keep updating the CPU and chipset every few years and then it will still be a "current" model, it doesn't matter what year it was first launched. It's like if you take an old car and rebuild it with a new engine, transmission, etc - it will run just like a new car, and you can't compare it in any way to one that is 20 years old with 150K miles on it. The body style may be outdated, in this case the laptop's "form factor", but that's about it.
