Dell's recently released XPS 15z laptop is one of the thinnest 15-inch PCs available with a case less than an inch thick.

It features 3DTV play capabilities and NVIDIA discrete graphics with Optimus technology that automatically switches to power-saving integrated graphics under reduced workloads.

There's an optional Intel wireless display feature, which streams videos and photos wirelessly to a HDMI-equipped TV.

The XPS 15z also includes: second generation Intel Core i5 and Core i7 processors, 15.6-inch full HD WLED display that has almost two times the HD resolution of standard HD displays, a backlit keyboard with changeable brightness, up to eight hours of battery life, built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0 and USB 3.0 capabilities.

It is the first in a series of thin Inspiron and XPS-branded Dell products due this year.

According to Dell consumer and small/medium business group president, Steve Felice, the XPS 15z is "a glimpse into a series of systems coming soon to our consumer and small-to-medium-business product portfolio”.

It is priced from $1399 and available locally from Dell’s online stores and retail partner, JB Hi-Fi, in the coming weeks.
