The XPS 15z is the first in a series of upcoming thin Inspiron- and XPS-branded products, Dell said.
The XPS 15z includes 2nd generation Intel Core i5 or i7 processors, a 15.6-inch WLED display with a Full HD option that has almost two times the HD resolution of standard HD displays, NVIDIA graphics with 3DTV play capabilities, built-in WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0, USB 3.0 and a backlit keyboard.
The XPS 15z delivers high performance, including NVIDIA discrete graphics with Optimus technology that automatically switches to power-saving integrated graphics under reduced workloads, helping the battery last longer. 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 optional 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 the XPS 15z to an HDMI-equipped TV.
Prices for the XPS 15z start from $999. It is available today from Dell?s global online stores, including www.dell.com in the United States, with retail availability to follow shortly.
