Dell adds redesigned 13z and 14z to Inspiron family
It all began with the 15z back in May, and now Dell has extended their Inspiron redesign to the rest of the spectrum. With the 15.6" department taken care of already, Dell has now announced the new Inspiron 13z and Inspiron 14z that fill out the 13.3” and 14” segments respectively.
Obviously both notebooks take cues from the 15z’s design department, and as such feature aluminum lids and palm rests to go along with a Chiclet keyboard. The notebooks are also available in Diamond Black and Fire Red colors that complement their thin and lightweight design.
As far as the inner specs go, the duo is available with a standard 1366x768 pixel resolution and come with Sandy Bridge i3 and i5 CPU options. In addition, Dell has tacked on USB 3.0 ports, up to 8GB of RAM, Integrated Intel graphics and an HD webcam. The only noticeable difference between the pair appears to be display size and an option for a 128GB SSD on the 13z.
With regards to pricing and release, the base model of the 14z can currently be purchased for $600 while the 13z is currently only launching in select Asian countries. And although the 13z's price is yet unknown, if you’ve been contemplating a new MacBook purchase, then Dell’s latest addition might be reason enough to think again.
