No matter the application, the new Inspiron z laptops are packed with some of the latest technology, and can handle the task.

"The new Inspiron 13z and 14z are two of the most powerful, ultra-thin Inspiron laptops we've ever offered," said Sam Burd, vice president of Dell's Consumer and Small/Medium Business product group. "Today's 'on-the-go' lifestyle demands portability and power, so your favourite content is always at your fingertips."
