Dell XPS 15z is Official
 
 
 

Dell launched the new thin XPS 15z 15-inch laptop today. Dell hails the 15z as the thinnest 15-inch PC with 0.97-inches (24.68mm). The 15-inch MacBook Pro is measuring though only .94-inches (24.1mm). Dell could have pushed their engineers a bit harder to shave off the .03-inches, but they did not. They kept their eyes on the price of this new laptop and with $999 it is very affordable.
