Is Dell XPS 15z Expensive for $999

Posted by Stefan on May 24th, 2011 in Uncategorized | 1 Comment

The Dell’s XPS 15z is on sale in US for $999 and its base model is powered by the Intel’s second generation core i5 processor – The core i5-2410M.

The core i5-2410M is a dual core 2.3 GHz processor that promises significant improvement in the graphics performance. Even though it is clocked slightly low at 2.3 GHz, its performance will be slightly higher than the similarly clocked 1st generation Intel core i3 processor ( Core i3-350M ), for example. It also surpasses or at least equals the performance when compared to the 2.53 GHz core i3-380M, 1st generation processor.

Dell XPS 15z is slim in size and light in weight. Though it is not as thin as the Apple, its weight is almost the same as a MAC book. But again you save $700 or so when you compare to the similar performance MAC book. Time to ditch your attachment to Apple ?

The keyboards have stylish curvature.

According to engadget

“When Dell tells you that the machine has no compromises, that’s not quite the case — it’s a solid choice at this price point, but corners were cut to get here.”
