What's better? M11x + External Monitor or Dell XPS Studio 16 + Netbook?

<p>I need a laptop for college and these are the two options I am left with. I currently have both laptops on hand and the pricing was around the same.</p>

<p>Any opinions on what I should do?</p>

<p>If I use the M11x, I would be carrying it everywhere.
If I use the XPS Studio 16, I would carry the netbook to class.</p>

<p>Go with the M11x if the i7 620UM is powerful enough for your needs and you don't mind the small keyboard. Although you can probably get an external keyboard for your room. But then switching between the two keyboard sizes will be annoying to get used to.</p>
