Hi Fernando,

Any dell notebook with a Pentium M processor will be very good for chess.

For example this one

This model can be ordered with a Pentium M 770 processor at 2.13 GHz which only
can be beat by an AMD Athlon64 3400+ at 2.4GHz or better.

You can look this up at

As for quality, I have used a dell notebook and a Dell pocket PC unit. Had no
problem with the notebook.  The pocket PC had a freezing problem right of the
box and Dell promptly sent me a replacement and a prepaid return box for the bad
one was included. So no hassle what so ever. This type of exchange service is
available during the warranty period.

However their tech support on the phone is not very knowledgeable till you can
get a supervisor online :)

That is the tradeoff for the cheap price.

Good luck with your purchase.
