Dell XPS 15z Microsoft – Laptop Features Specs & Images

Dell XPS 15z Microsoft Features

The XPS 15z’s feature set is comparable to, if not better than, that of the MacBook Pro 15-inch. All three USB ports support advanced technologies: two of them USB 3.0, the other eSATA as well as USB 2.0. The XPS 15z has jacks for both HDMI and Mini DisplayPort (for a dual-monitor hookup), whereas laptops like the MacBook Pro 15-inch, HP Pavilion dv6-6170us, and Samsung RC512-S02 come with one or the other. Legacy users won’t find a VGA port or modem jack, however. The standard webcam doesn’t shoot video in high definition like the ones found on the MacBook Pro 15-inch and XPS 15. And although the slot-loading DVD burner is a nice aesthetic touch, Blu-ray drives aren’t available yet. (You’ll need to upgrade to the XPS 15 to get one.) The 500GB hard drive isn’t as spacious as the 750GB one on the last 15z we reviewed, but it still offers plenty of storage for the typical user. Speaker grilles can be found on either side of the keyboard, and they face upwards so that sound blasts directly at your face. It’s a better-sounding system than the one the MacBook Pro uses, but lacks the subwoofer that improves bass on the XPS 15.
