Today Dell introduced the XPS 15z laptop one of the thinnest 15-inch PCs on the market and the first in a series of new, thin and powerful products from Dell. With the XPS 15z, everyone from mobile warriors to students and small-business’ now have everything they need in one stunning package.
With uncompromising power and elegant design, the XPS 15z offers 2nd-generation Intel Core i5 and Core i7 processors, optional 15.6-inch Full HD (1080p) display for superior entertainment and web-browsing experiences. A backlit keyboard with adjustable brightness and up to eight hours of battery life are all housed in a luxuriously crafted case that is less than an inch thick.
Despite its incredibly slim exterior, the XPS 15z delivers uncompromising performance, including NVIDIA discrete graphics with Optimus technology that automatically switches to power-saving integrated graphics under reduced workloads – helping the battery last longer on coast-to-coast flights and movie marathons! In addition, it offers ample hard drive storage and a slot-loading DVD +/- RW drive for watching the latest films or burning music to a disc. The optional Full HD (1080p) display brings HDTV-type quality to the laptop screen.
Built-in Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity ensure it’s fast and easy to connect with e-mail, websites, Skype and Facebook from almost anywhere. For at-home entertainment, the optional Intel Wireless Display feature enables videos and photos to be streamed wirelessly from your XPS 15z to an HDMI-equipped TV. And with the exclusive Dell Stage user interface, it’s easy to access personal content such as music, photos and videos.
Priced from £899 including VAT and shipping, the XPS 15z, like all XPS computers, is designed and built from the ground up to provide a premium computing experience with the best materials, technology, performance and reliability Dell offers.
The XPS 15z is available today from Dell’s global online stores, including www.dell.co.uk in the United Kingdom, with retail availability to follow shortly.
