Today has been a doozy of tech news, and Dell is just continuing the cycle. The XPS 15z is a .97-inch 15-inch machine that has taken extreme cues from the Macbook Pro design. Starting at a very reasonable $999, the entry-level XPS 15z has a 2nd-gen Core i5 processor clocked at 2.30 GHz with Turbo Boost 2.0 up to 2.90 GHz, 6GB of DDR3 RAM, NVIDIA GeForce GT 525M 1GB graphics with Optimus, a 15.6″ HD (at 720p, can be upgrade to 1080p) WLED Display with 1.3 megapixel webcam, a 500GB 7,200rpm hard drive, slot-loading DVD drive, WiFi and Bluetooth 3.0, a fully-backlit keyboard, and a purported 8 hours of battery life on a single charge.
For a $1000, that’s a lot of bang for your buck, but until I try one out for myself (or you do), then you can’t be too sure. Via: Dell
