Dell Launches Super Slim XPS 15z Laptop

Super Slim XPS 15z

has announced the availability of the Dell XPS 15z, a range of laptops that look a lot like Apple’s Macbook Pro ones although the Austin-based manufacturer curiously refers to the range as a PC rather than a notebook.

The XPS 15z is 0.6mm thicker than the current MBP at 24.7mm and both share at least two features; the slot-load optical drive and the side-facing LED battery charge indicator.

As expected though, Dell’s a bit less frugal than Apple when it comes to connectors; you get an HDMI port, an eSATA/USB connector plus two other USB 3.0, one mini DisplayPort and a card reader.

The base unit XPS 15z – which costs £899 including VAT and delivery – has an Intel Core i5-2410M Sandy Bridge CPU clocked at 2.3GHz with 3MB cache, 4GB RAM, a 500GB hard disk drive, a 1GB Nvidia GeForce GT525M GPU with embedded Optimus power saving, 8-cell battery, a 15.6-inch WLED display with an 1.3-megapixel camera, 15 month security software and Windows 7 Home Premium.

Other additional options include Core i7 CPU, doubling the RAM, 50 per cent additional hardware (no SSD by default), 2GB video card and a full HD screen.
The cheapest Macbook Pro costs a whopping £1549 by comparison although to be honest, Apple’s entry level 15-inch Macbook Pro comes with a quad-core i7 which isn’t even present on the XPS 15z.
