Dell adds 14-inch, 15-inch CULV Inspirons

updated 01:50 pm EDT, Tue September 8, 2009

Dell Inspiron 14z and 15z

Dell today grew its budding CULV (Consumer Ultra Low Voltage) notebook line with two mid-sized models. The 14-inch Inspiron 14z and 15.6-inch Inspiron 15z together use the slower but also much cooler and more efficient processors to both slim down significantly from the regular systems while also shedding weight and extending their battery lives: the systems can last over eight hours (8.5 on the 14z) on a six-cell pack.

Either is still a full-fledged notebook with an internal DVD drive and conventional notebook-sized parts. The two Inspirons begin similarly with a 1.3GHz Pentium dual-core, 3GB of RAM, a 160GB hard drive, Intel GMA 4500 graphics and a four-cell battery, though the 15z is less expensive at $599 versus the $684 of the smaller model. Upgrades can bring a 1.4GHz Core 2 Duo as well as 4GB of memory, a 500GB 7,200RPM hard drive and the larger battery pack.
