Dell launches new 14-inch XPS and Inspiron ultrabooks

Just after four months after Dell launched their first ultrabook in the Philippines, the PC company has introduced two new 14” ultrabooks that would give consumers more option to choose from.

First up is the Dell Inspiron 14z. This machine is aimed at the budget-conscious market who wants a taste of ultrabook goodness without spending too much. Apart from meeting Intel’s minimum standards for an ultrabook, Dell has also thrown in some features to differentiate Inspiron 14z from the rest of the pact. The ultrabook is said to keep you company for up to 7 hours on a single full charge.

At a glance, this ultrabook may be mistaken for an ordinary laptop but looking closely at its specs will solidify its place in that category.

Dell Inspiron 14z specs:
14.0” HD Widescreen, 200-nit (1366×768) 720p
3rd Gen Intel Core i5-3317U Processor (3M Cache, up to 2.60 GHz) or

We ran a Windows Experience Index for the Insprion 14z and here’s the result.

Next up is the XPS 14, which is the big brother of the XPS 13 that was just launched four months ago. Though both Ultrabooks bares similarities, there are also a handful of differences between the two besides the screen size.

The XPS 14 is a fine piece of hardware which boasts a machined aluminum body with magnesium palm rest and a very crisp and bright 900p, 400-nit 14” True Life Infinity display protected from scratches by the tough edge-to-edge Corning Gorilla Glass. Although the XPS 14 is still lighter compared to typical laptops, its 4.6lbs weight ranks the second heaviest Ultrabook in the market right now, with the heaviest being the HP Envy 6t-1000 ultrabook. Dell promises up to 11 hours of normal use of the XPS 14.
