Dell releases notebook ranges -

Say what you like about the Silly Season, this year there's been plenty of hard hitting news to digest. And this is no exception. Dell has released some more laptops.

Yes, here is Dell's Inspiron 13z and 14z. They're thin and powerful, Dell says. They've both got Intel Core i processors, we guess you can choose which you like, because Dell doesn't say. 

The 13z has a 13.3 inch HD widescreen display in 1366-768dpi. You can buy it with up to 8GB of memory, and a 320GB or 500GB hard drive, or 128GB of SSD. The 14z's screen is a little bigger at 14 inch HD widescreen. Likewise you can include up to 8GB of memory and you can get it with a 500GB, 640GB or 750GB hard drive. There's USB 3.0 on both models. They run on Windows 7.

You'll only be able to buy the 13z from "select countries in Asia" but you can buy the 14z starting at $599.99.

If that wasn't enough to rattle the headlines, Dell is also releasing something it calls the Vostro V131. Though it sounds like an early Moldovan knock-off hatchback, it's actually the latest in the Volstro laptop line aimed at small businesses. 

The 131 has either an Intel i3 or i5. Dell claims the six cell battery will last for 9.5 hours. Probably depends what you do with it, really...

If you want, the laptop will come with WiMAX and LTE support, but only in the US. There's Bluetooth 3.0 and two USB 3.0 ports. 

If you  want one, prices start at $449.
