Dell is to enter the male grooming market and offer an electric shaver with its new Z-series Inspiron laptops, it would seem.

Dells signals move to become the Boots of IT

How else can we explain the headline on the company's website: "Dell's New Inspiron 'Z' laptops prove beauty and Braun go together."

The new notebooks are the Inspiron 14z and 15z, both 1in thick but equipped with 16:9 widescreen displays - the model numbers indicate the sizes - up to 8GB of 1067MHz DDR 3 memory, up to 500GB of 7200rpm Sata hard drive storage and an Intel processor selected from a choice of Pentium, ultra-low voltage Core 2 Solo and Core 2 Duo.

Dell's Inspiron 14z: ideal for the five o'clock shadow?

Wi-Fi comes as standard - 3G connectivity is an optional extra.

The machines come with a four-cell, four-hour battery as standard, but buyers can opt for a six-cell, eight-hour power pack if they prefer.

The Inspiron 14z and 15z are available in black or cherry red and can be purchased in the US from $599. There's no word yet on UK pricing and availability.

Bzzzzzzzzz... Ouch!

Or indeed which model of shaver the laptops will ship with.

Oh, wait a minute, maybe they mean 'brawn'... ®
