Dell Inspiron 13z Notebooks With Windows 7 Debut In Australia

It’s beginning…the dawn of Windows 7 and Dell customers in Australia are reaping the rewards today with the release of the Dell Inspiron 13z utraportable notebooks.

The devices feature a 13.3 inch display that outputs at HD resolutions of 1366 x 768 with an LED backlit screen. They also come equipped with the high-end Intel Pentium Core 2 Duo SU9400 processor, 2GB RAM with upgrades available up to 4GB and storage that ranges from 160GB to 500GB HDD’s. No word yet if a SSD will eventually be available.

The NVIDIA GeForce G105M GPU is also available, however the standard option is the Intel based GMA X4500MHD offering.

Personally I would place my bets on the 8 cell battery that comes optional and provides 11 hours of runtime, however budget conscience users will still get 5 hours out of the standard included 4 cell power adapter. [Dell]

Update: The unit also provides an integrated optical drive and built-in WiFi. Bluetooth users can also upgrade to receive that option at an additional cost.

Unit pricing for Australian buyers has also been released at AU$1,199 with an expected U.S. price of $1,100.
