Dell’s XPS 14z isn’t exactly an ultra book, but it is slender at 23mm, without missing out on an optical drive or ports.
OK, it does rather look like a certain well known range of computers, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing, and it’s not as though that company owns the colour silver to speak of. The XPS 14z won’t be available until mid November, but Dell’s sent out a release today detailing the specifications of the XPS 14z, a 23mm thin 14″ 1366×768 notebook that packs Core i5 or Core i7 processors, 1GB NVIDIA GeForce GT 520M graphics and 6GB of onboard memory. Pricing is stated to start at $1199, although as with all things Dell there’s a fair amount of customisation that can up that price depending on your choices. [Dell]
