Dell’s reputation has been quite strong in laptops, netbooks, or for that matter desktop PCs. They’ve now brought one of their slimmest notebooks called the XPS 15z to India. The notebook boast of the latest specifications in terms of processors, RAM and graphic cards.
Slim, but with good specifications to boast of.
The XPS 15z has a 15.6-inch WLED screen with Full HD capability with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The processors that these laptops come with are also the latest from Intel’s stable. Users can choose between second generation of the Intel Core i5 or i7 processors and select either a 1 GB NVIDIA GeForce GT525 graphics card or the 2 GB version of the same. The cards have NVIDIA’s Optimus and 3DTV Play technology pre-loaded. HDD storage capacity also starts from 500 GB which is usually sufficient for the average notebook user. Those looking for more space to store their data, can also opt for the 750 GB version.
The rest of the specifications like connectivity options and the rest will come with both versions of the XPS 15z. There’s Bluetooth 3.0 and Wi-Fi 802.11 n and there are two USB 3.0 ports and an eSATA/USB port as well. Dell has also brought a quick launch bar in the form of their Stage User Interface that is basically meant for launching particular programs quickly.
