Dell announced the availability of the Studio 14z notebook aimed at providing students with a highly desirable notebook. Following industry trends, the Studio 14z is the thinnest and lightest Studio notebook to date. It features Intel’s latest Core 2 Duo processors, up to 5GB of RAM, 500GB HDD, a 720p or 900p 14″HD screen, and a 6-cell battery (with an 8-cell option). Acknowledging the next generation of students’ penchant for media consumption, the 14z also comes with an NVIDIA GeForce 9400 integrated graphics processor that is claimed to outperform many entry-level discrete graphics cards and 4-watt SRS 2.0 integrated speakers with separate tweeters. A 1.3MP webcam is also integrated with dual array microphones. Prices start at $649 and is available for purchase now.
