Dell announced the updated Inspiron 13z and 14z ultraportable notebooks back in June, and well, it looks like both models have since come available for purchase. These models begin with a starting price of $599.99 for the 13z and $699.99 for the 14z. Of course, both models can also be customized which will add some additional cost.
In terms of the base models, lets begin first with the Inspiron 13z. This model brings a 13-inch 720p display along with a 1.4GHz Intel Core i3-2367M processor, 6GB of RAM, Intel HD Graphics 3000, a 500GB hard drive, 49WHr 4-cell battery and Windows 7 Home Premium. The Inspiron 14z is spec’d rather closely with the difference being a 14-inch HD display and 44WHr 6-cell battery. Another difference on the 14z, in addition to the 500GB hard drive, this model also sports a 32GB SSD. Otherwise, both models bring goodies to include Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, Skullcandy audio with WaveMaxx 4.0 and an external case color of Moon Silver.
Lastly, at least at the present time the Dell website is showing the ‘preliminary’ shipping date as of June 20th (tomorrow) and offering free 7-day shipping.
