Dell has, yesterday, announced that it will bring out a brand new 0.97-inch thick laptop called the XPS 15z – touted as one of the Dell’s thinnest and ultra-powerful laptops it has. Powered by an Intel Core i7 or i5 chip, no doubt that this is Dell’s competitor to the MacBook Pro.

In addition to the processor, it will have a 15-inch display that is 1080p capable, 8GB of DDR3 RAM, backlit keyboard with adjustable brightness and up to eight-hours of battery life. It also features an NVIDIA GeForce GT 525M graphics card with 1GB or 2GB of memory with 3DTV play capabilities, 1.3 megapixel camera, USB 3.0 and Bluetooth 3.0 support and Wi-Fi.

The laptop is one of Dell’s new plan to create thinner versions of the Inspiron and XPS laptop lines that combine both performance and style – a plan that could be identified as similar to Apple. But, once we get our hands on it, then we will see if they have achieved that.

Pricing starts at AU$1399 and is available now from Dell’s own site.
