Dell introduces one of the thinnest PCs with the new XPS 15z
Posted on 25-May-2011 07:00 | Tags Filed under: News



Dell has introduced the XPS 15z laptop, one of the thinnest 15-inch PCs on the planet, and the first in a series of new thin and ultra-powerful products from Dell to come this year. With the XPS 15z, everyone from mobile warriors to students and small-business owners now have everything they need to work hard and play hard in one stunning package.

A leading-edge combination of uncompromising power and stunning design, the XPS 15z offers 2nd generation Intel Core i5 and Core i7 processors, 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 – all housed in a case that is less than an inch thick.

The XPS 15z is the first in a series of upcoming thin Inspiron - and XPS-branded products that deliver the ultimate blend of style and performance so you can pursue your personal passions.

“The XPS 15z delivers uncompromising performance in our most beautifully designed laptop yet,” said Sam Burd, vice president of Dell’s Consumer and Small/Medium Business product group. “It delivers all the must-have features -- from next-generation Intel Core i processors for incredible performance to full HD screens that are up to 50 percent brighter than standard displays – all in a stunning form factor that makes it one of the thinnest 15-inch PCs on the planet.”

“The XPS 15z provides a glimpse into a series of visually stunning and powerful systems coming soon to our consumer and small-to-medium-business product portfolio,” said Steve Felice, president of Dell’s Consumer and Small/Medium Business group. “We’re committed to introducing next-generation products that help people pursue their personal and professional passions.”

Despite its incredibly slim exterior, the XPS 15z delivers 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 lengthy flights, and for movie marathons. In addition, it offers ample hard drive storage and a slot-loading DVD +/- RW drive for watching the latest movies or burning music to a disc. And the Full HD (1080p) display brings HDTV-type quality to the laptop screen.

For at-home entertainment, the optional Intel Wireless Display feature enables videos and photos to be streamed wirelessly from a 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 NZ$1899 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 New Zealand, with retail availability to follow shortly.
