We knew this price point was coming for Ultrabooks, but it looks like it’s almost here, Amazon has the Dell Inspiron 14z up for pre-order for $699. The 14″ display has a 720p resolution and there’s 4GB of main memory along with Bluetooth 4.0, two USB 3.0 ports, ethernet, an HDMI port and a card reader.
Main storage is with a conventional 500GB disk although a small 32GB solid state drive gives the Inspiron 14Z the fast boot capability required of ultrabooks. SSDs up to 256GB are optional. The catch? Well it’s running Sandy Bridge instead of the latest Ivy Bridge processor.
