Dell Inspiron 14z Not Really an Ultrabook; Aims to Be One of Those Thin Ultra-Mobile Devices [Video]

September 3, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Dell’s new addition to their laptop line has arrived. The fascinating thing about the new device is that it has been outed as yet another thin ultra-mobile laptop. The company unveiled the Inspiron 14z at IFA, Berlin. But, let me tell you, you can’t call it an Ultrabook.

The Inspiron 14z is powered by second-generation Intel core i3 and Core i5 variants. Its 14 inch widescreen HD display has a resolution of 1366 x 768. You get to choose from a 500GB, 640GB or 750GB hard drive.

Other features include up to 8 GB memory and an internal tray-load DVD combo for playing and recording DVDs or CDs. It seems to lack an SSD option though.

The laptop also has a built-in media card reader, WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0, USB 3.0 and built-in SRS Premium Sound HD. The package comes in standard Diamond Black or optional Fire Red LCD back chassis and matching palm rest.

It also sports a full size chicklet-style keyboard and HD webcam. Another highlight is that the laptop will come with the Dell Stage user interface.

The new Inspiron 14z is one of the most powerful, ultra-thin Inspiron laptops the company has offered. The device will be available in select Best Buy outlets throughout the UK later this month and in other retail outlets and select countries throughout Europe later this year.

Watch a video of the device  below. Now tell us, are you getting one?
