Eighteen different QuickSnap color inserts, ranging from Burl Wood to Snakeskin to Spring Palette, provide customers the ability to personalize the look of their notebook.

The Inspiron 4100 features Intel's Mobile Pentium III processor-M in speeds of up to 1.2GHz combined with Intel's 830 chipset, and can be configured with up to 1 GB of PC 133 SDRAM. ATI's Mobility Radeon with 4X AGP and 16 MB of DDR memory deliver super fast 2-D and 3-D graphics performance and exceptional DVD playback performance.
