As students gear up to get back to school, the Dell Inspiron z series, R series and Inspiron R Special Edition notebooks have been introduced to serve educational as well as entertainment purposes. The 14z Ultrabook as well as the other laptops are equipped with the Ivy Bridge processors and are upgradeable to Windows 8 OS.
After the XPS 13, the company has constructed another sleek Ultrabook, the 14z, that combines stylish looks with enhanced performance. Deployed with the Intel Rapid Start technology, it claims to cough up the juice for close to 7 hours at a stretch. The portable computer, drenched in shades of moon silver or fire red, is encased in a brushed aluminum chassis of thickness 21mm that weighs not more than 1.87kg. The 13z of the z series is accompanied by detachable lids in shades of moon silver, fire red and lotus pink. The laptop delivers uninterrupted computing for close to 7.5 hours through its thin exterior of 20.7mm thickness.
The R series of the Inspiron family comprises 15R and 17R notebooks which are meant to fulfill everyday computing needs. Besides color switch lids, these devices boast of high definition displays, Intel Wireless Display technology, advanced audio as well as Waves MaxxAudio 3 technology to keep users entertained on the move. The 15R and 17R Special Edition laptops have been integrated with AMD and Nvidia GPUs, respectively as well as Skullcandy speakers in addition to the Waves MaxxAudio 4 audio suite.
“As families prepare to send their kids off to school this fall, they need a laptop with reliability and performance. The expanded and redesigned Inspiron family helps parents embrace technology and make a smart investment in their children’s success,” commented Sam Burd, vice president, Dell Personal Computing Product Group.
Moreover, these Special Edition laptops are enclosed in durable exteriors reinforced with an anodized aluminum finish in stealth black.
