Dell has officially announced the CULV-based Inspiron 11z ‘netbook’. The device is the company’s first entry into the “thin and light with great battery life” segment. The 11z is only an inch thin and weighs around 1.4kg (3lbs). The new Intel ULV processor should enable “smooth HD video playback” according to Dell. The 11z’s 28WHr battery is only expected to last for around three hours.
It is currently only being sold as a pre-configured system, although more configuration options will be available at a later date. The device is actually available to buy now in the US from the Dell site for a very reasonable $399. A European release will be following suit on August 25th, where it will be available in Carphone Warehouse in the U.K. and the Phone House in France.
