Well-designed and well-built, the XPS 14z is the classic example of style and substance. Customers will get more with this laptop: more screen size, and surprisingly portability for such a fully-loaded laptop.
The 14-inch HD display easily fits into a 13-inch laptop form factor -while offering 10 percent more viewing area than a 13.3-inch display. And starting at just 1.98kgs[i], only 23mm thin, and up to six hours and 42 minutes of battery life[ii], it also has the easy portability of a 13-inch- laptop. The XPS 14z's uncompromising performance helps busy professionals achieve their personal and professional pursuits - and look good while doing it. The XPS 14z is visually striking, with a slim, yet powerful form synonymous with innovation. Its anodized-aluminum finish is stylish and sophisticated, and the latch-less design is simple, yet elegant.
"The XPS 14z delivers what professionals want - raw power paired with a stunning, sophisticated design that signals 'I've arrived'," said Steve Felice, president of Dell's Consumer and Small/Medium Business group. "The XPS 14z is specifically engineered to help our customers do more in their personal and professional lives - and it advances our industry-leading vision for thin-and-powerful solutions that deliver performance without compromise."
"When Dell looks at innovation and product development, we start with the customer. For us, it's about delivering the right feature-set and design to provide the best user experience for our customers," said Sam Burd, vice president of Dell's Consumer and Small/Medium Business product group.
