Dell unveils ultra-thin notebook25 May 2011 16:49:49
A new notebook purporting to be the thinnest 15-inch model in the world has been unveiled by Dell.
Called the XPS 15z, it weighs just 2.54kg and is 24.68mm thick and is the first in a new line of 15-inch notebooks being developed by the manufacturer.
Despite its small size, the notebook still manages to pack in a number of high spec features.
These include a universal memory card reader, supporting SD, SDIO, SDXC, SDHC, MS, MS Pro, MMC, MSXC and xD formats.
Other features include dual second generation Intel Core i5 or i7 processors, a 2GB NVIDIA GeForce GT 525M graphics card and up to 750GB of storage on a SATA hard drive.
"We're offering uncompromised performance in an incredibly portable package," Brian Pitstick, Dell's executive director of mobile product marketing, told pcmag.com.
The news comes shortly after Lenovo revealed the ThinkPad X1, the company's thinnest ever notebook, measuring just 16.5mm thick at its leading edge and 21.3mm at its thickest point, while incorporating a 13.1-inch screen.
