• Sleek, stylish and fun to use with Dell Stage’s one-click access to your favourite music, videos and photos

• An extension of Dell’s thin and powerful suite, the Inspiron 14z delivers what’s important, to you


Berlin, Germany, September 2, 2011 –Today at the Internationale Funkausstellung Berlin (IFA), Dell announced the new Inspiron 14z laptop. This latest addition to Dell’s thin and powerful portfolio brings the ultra-mobile “z” distinction to Inspiron, Dell’s best-selling Consumer laptop brand. Combining sizzling performance, rich features, and chic design, the Inspiron 14z is the perfect mobile companion. Whether taking notes in class, or communicating with family across the country[i], the Inspiron 14z delivers what you need in a sleek and stunning form.

No matter the application, the new Inspiron 14z laptop is packed with some of the latest technology, and can handle the task. Combining 2nd generation Intel® CoreTM i3 and Core i5 processor options, HD (720p) display, and excellent battery life, the Inspiron 14z is ideal for homework, company reports, mobile entertainment, keeping in touch with friends and pursuing your passions.

The Inspiron 14z is the latest in a series of rolling introductions of Dell’s thin and powerful mobile products launching through the end of the year. Beginning with the XPS 15z, an ultimate blend of performance and style, the Inspiron 14z makes this “uncompromising” concept more accessible than ever.

“The new Inspiron 14z is one of the most powerful, ultra-thin Inspiron laptops we’ve ever offered,” said Aongus Hegarty, vice president and general manager of Dell’s Consumer, Small and Medium Business unit for EMEA. “Today’s ‘on-the-go’ lifestyle demands portability and power, so you can stay connected and be productive wherever you are.”

Accessible Style On-the-Go
When it’s time to kick back and relax, the Inspiron 14z is the perfect portable entertainment device, featuring a brilliant high-definition display and built-in SRS Premium Sound HD. For a theatre-like experience, it can stream full HD movies and video wirelessly with Intel Wireless Display technology[ii] or by connecting via HDMI cable to a compatible big-screen HDTV.

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

The Inspiron 14z is available with blazing fast 2nd generation Intel Core i processors, Microsoft® Windows 7 operating system, and high-performance on-processor graphics allowing for long battery life. A built-in media card reader, WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0 and the newest USB 3.0 technology for faster content transfers are also available as standard.

With a 14-inch widescreen HD (1366-768dpi) display, and optional features including up to 8GB memory[iii], choice of a 500GB, 640GB or 750GB hard drive[iv], along with an internal tray-load DVD combo for playing and recording DVDs/CDs, the Inspiron 14z is great for family entertainment, whether watching videos or playing music.

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