The 15-inch Dell XPS 15z has a polished metal exterior that feels rich and premium on touch. its screen lid and bottom cover are made of anodized aluminum that resists scratches; it also has a lighter silvery hue like the unibody Apple MacBook Pro. Though the 0.97-inch thick Dell XPS 15z is slightly slimmer than the MacBook Pro which has a thickness of 1 inch, you can barely feel the difference. the whole unit’s magnesium alloy chassis is very well built-no creaky joints, no cheap plastics – all you feel is a fine aluminum block that encases a powerful PC.
The Dell XPS 15z comes with a full-HD, 1920×1080 pixel resolution display. It has good brightness and contrast levels even at the corner edges. The laptop’s keyboard is pretty good for typing – the tactile feedback, zero flex from the keyboard deck and the plush, wide palm rest make typing on the XPS 15z extremely convenient.
Given the laptop’s internal hardware, the XPS 15z is well equipped to be a powerful all purpose laptop for your home, tuned multimedia and entertainment use. Not only does the 15-inch Dell XPS 15z have above average internal hardware, the laptop comes with abundant connectivity features. Its multimedia performance is very good: gaming isn’t bad and its battery life is better than average. If you can afford it, the Dell XPS 15z is well worth the money for a style-savvy, all-purpose home entertainment laptop.
