Dell today introduced the XPS 15z laptop one of the thinnest 15-inch PCs available at just 0.97”/24.68mm, and the first in a series of new thin and powerful products from Dell to come this year. The XPS 15z is the first in a series of upcoming thin Inspiron- and XPS-branded products that deliver an exciting blend of style and performance giving you a lightweight, portable yet stylish laptop.

The 15z offers the 2nd-generation Intel Core i5 and Core i7 processors, 4GB DDR3 memory (max 8GB), optional 15.6-inch Full HD (1080p) display, 750GB hard drive, up to eight hours of battery life and a novel backlit keyboard with adjustable brightness.

“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 optional 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 PC on the planet.”
