Dell Inspiron 13z and Dell Latitude XT3 Announced
Dell today announced two new additions to their Inspiron and Latitude line of notebooks, extending Dell’s emphasis on thin and powerful computing, and meeting the needs of mobile professionals who want to work without boundaries.
Dell Inspiron 13z - the Latest in Thin and Powerful Computing
Dell today announced the new Inspiron 13z laptop, extending the company's emphasis on thin and powerful computing, and broadening the ultra-mobile “z” distinction to Inspiron, Dell’s best-selling Consumer laptop brand. The new Inspiron 13z combines sizzling performance, rich features, and chic design in a small, take anywhere “companion” laptop, whether it’s for taking notes in class, or communicating with family across the country.
Accessible Style On-the-Go
The Inspiron 13z is the perfect portable entertainment device. Featuring a brilliant high-definition widescreen (1366-768dpi) display and built-in SRS Premium Sound HD, it enables users to enjoy a theater-like experience by streaming full HD movies and video wirelessly with Intel Wireless Display technology or by connecting via HDMI cable to a compatible big-screen HDTV.
The Inspiron 13z comes with blazing fast 2nd generation Intel Core i processors, Microsoft Windows 7 operating system, and high-performance on-processor graphics allowing for longer 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. Other optional features include up to 8GB of memory, a choice of a 320GB or 500GB hard drive or 128GB of solid state storage.
The Inspiron 13z is also pre-installed with the Dell Stage user interface, which offers one-click access to your favorite 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.
All of these are packed into a stylish design that’s thin, lightweight, and is available in standard Diamond Black or optional Fire Red LCD back and matching palmrest, full-size chiclet-style keyboard and HD webcam.
The Inspiron 13z 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 13z makes this “uncompromising” concept more accessible than ever.
Dell Latitude XT3 - convertible tablet PC
The Dell Latitude XT3 is the all-new, versatile convertible tablet PC designed for mobile professionals who want to work without boundaries. The Latitude XT3 possesses all the productivity, power and functionality of a standard laptop combined with the flexibility and dynamic interface of a responsive touch-screen tablet. The system allows non desk-bound workers, such as healthcare professionals, educators and service personnel, to work almost anywhere.
The new Latitude XT3 comes with an enhanced display size – a 13.3-inch HD LCD. The picture-perfect clarity of the bigger landscape and wider viewing angles improve usability in both laptop and tablet mode. Available as an option, the XT3 also offers an outdoor viewing screen for work in sunlight.
The XT3 is powered by new Intel Core i processors. This increased horsepower means the system can handle the toughest computing tasks. Hard drive options for the XT3 include up to 320GB and optional SSD. Depending on how it is configured, the XT3 can deliver over 8 hours of battery life and with Latitude ExpressCharge the battery can re-charge 80% in just about an hour.
In terms of security, the XT3 offers the same great data protection with Dell Data Protection, Remote Data Delete and Free Fall Sensor, while on the exterior, the system is protected with a strong magnesium alloy and a highly durable powder coated base.
Conversion between laptop and tablet modes is now just a simple twist of the LCD screen, all thanks to the new bi-directional hinge. The new Latitude XT3 is a combination of these productivity features with enhanced durability, security and manageability that IT professionals need. What’s more, the Latitude XT3, featuring capacitive multi-touch (four-finger), pen, touchpad, full keyboard (optional backlit functionality) and mouse capabilities, truly conforms to how people work.
The XT3 is compatible with the docking stations, power adapters, media modules and extended battery slices used by the other Latitude E-Family of laptops.
