whole range of Inspiron Z-series machines way back in August when we previewed the line, and it looks like the 13-inch model is finally ready to join the already-launched 11, 14 and 15 -- in Australia. Yep, the Z-series has gone live Down Under, and the Inspiron 13z is part of the lineup, starting at AU$1,199 (US$1,106). That'll buy you a 1.3GHz SU7300 Core 2 Duo with Intel integrated 4500MHD graphics, 4GB of DDR3 RAM, a 320GB drive, and an LED-backlit screen, all in a four-pound chassis that's 1.27 inches thick at its chubbiest. Not bad -- we'll see what official US pricing is like before we get any more excited, however.
Update: A number of readers from across the pond have wrote in to tell us that Inspiron 13z is also available in the UK.
