After launching the XPS 15z a couple of months ago, DELL XPS 14z  is now known to be the THINNEST Fully Featured 14-inch laptops featuring an internal optical drive (ODD) and discrete graphics option.

The XPS 14z is a sleek laptop that weighs about 4.36 lbs and 0.9 inches thin.
Yes, it’s lighter than the usual laptops and its size makes it more portable to bring anywhere.

The unique design comes in a small magnesium alloy compact body with more screen size.

The edge to edge glass produces minimal screen border, which means that the 14-inch HD (720p) display easily fits into a 13-inch laptop, offering 10% more viewing area than a 13.3″ display.

DELL XPS 14z also boasts of its spill-resistant Chiclet-type keyboard
But be warned, it only says “spill-resistant” and NOT WATERPROOF.

The backlit keyboard is also a plus especially when working in a dim environment.

Laptop users will also appreciate the big trackpad.

What’s more is that this high performance lightweight business laptop comes with Windows 7 Home Premium, 2nd-generation Intel Core i5 and Core i7 with NVIDIA GeForce GT 520M with 1GB graphics memory.

Customers will surely enjoy playing games and watching movies or videos with Dell XPS 14z.

DELL XPS 14z has a built-in slot load for DVD/CD and it has a unique cool feature of battery monitor on the side. 

You do not need to turn on your laptop to check if you still need to bring the adaptor/charger.
Just press the button and the dots will light up, showing battery life.
5 dots represents FULL, which means, your DELL XPS 14z can last up to 6 hours of battery life for an average use.

This lightweight laptop computer also has USB 3.0 (1), USB 2.0 (1), HDMI 1.4 (1), RJ-45 (1), Mini-Display-Port and mic/audio connectors.

I wish it had more USB slots though.

This DELL LAPTOP COMPUTER is targeting mid-high price segment.
In short, it’s premium priced.

The DELL XPS 14z is considered to be one of the BEST BUSINESS LAPTOPs because it is LIGHTWEIGHT featuring HIGH PERFORMANCE factors.

It is also perfect for customers who likes stylish, sophisticated and elegant laptops that provide high performance and PORTABILITY that they need.
