Dell Rolls Out New Inspiron ‘Z’ Laptops

The new Inspiron 13z and 14z provide users a variety of features and a chic design in a sleek, take anywhere laptop, whether it’s for taking notes in class, or communicating with family across the country.

At the same time, Dell introduced the Vostro V131, touted as one of the “lightest and thinnest” products in the Vostro portfolio designed specifically for small business customers.

The new Inspiron z laptops are packed with some of the latest technology, combining 2nd generation Intel CoreTM i3 and Core i5 processor options, HD (720p) display, and long-lasting battery life. Dell said these features make Inspiron z series “ideal for school papers, company reports, mobile entertainment, and keeping in touch with friends.”

The Inspiron 13z and 14z are part of Dell’s latest series of rolling introductions of “thin and powerful mobile products launching through the end of the year.”

Beginning with the XPS 15z, the Inspiron z series makes this “uncompromising” concept more accessible than ever, with prices starting at just $599.99 for the 14z.

“The new Inspiron 13z and 14z are two of the most powerful, ultra-thin Inspiron laptops we’ve ever offered,” said Sam Burd, vice president of Dell’s Consumer and Small/Medium Business product group.

“Today’s ‘on-the-go’ lifestyle demands portability and power, so your favorite content is always at your fingertips.”

Both the 13z and 14z feature high-definition displays and built-in SRS Premium Sound HD. For a theater-like experience, the two Inspiron laptops can stream full HD movies and video wirelessly with Intel Wireless Display technology or by connecting via HDMI cable to a compatible big-screen HDTV.

All of this is packed into a thin, lightweight design that is available in standard Diamond Black or optional Fire Red LCD back and matching palmrest, full-size chiclet-style keyboard and HD webcam.

Dell’s Inspiron z models are available with 2nd generation Intel Core i processors, Microsoft Windows 7 operating system, and high-performance on-processor graphics that guarantee long battery life. A built-in media card reader, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0 and the newest USB 3.0 technology for faster content transfers are also available as standard.

The Inspiron 13z comes with a bright, 13.3-inch widescreen HD (1366-768dpi) display. Other optional features include up to 8GB of memory, a choice of a 320GB or 500GB hard drive or 128GB of solid state storage.

The Inspiron 14z is equipped with a 14-inch widescreen HD (1366-768dpi) display, and optional features including up to 8GB memory, choice of a 500GB, 640GB or 750GB hard drive, along with an internal tray-load DVD combo for playing and recording DVDs/CDs.

Dell Inspiron laptops also come with the Dell Stage user interface, which offers one-click access to the users’ favorite content including music, photos and video, and SyncUP powered by Nero that can keep content and personal information synched with other Stage-enabled Dell PCs and mobile devices within the home’s Wi-Fi network.
