Thin Really is In
If the latest school notebooks seem a bit large, thick and heavy, Dell’s XPS 15z is like a welcome alternative. Based on a Core i5 or i7 processor, the 15z comes with up to 8GB of RAM, up to a 750GB hard drive and a DVD drive. The HD 15.6-inch screen can be ordered with a variety of Nvidia graphics engines, yet the system is less than an inch thick and weighs only 5.5-pounds. The systems start at $999.
