The Dell XPS 18 is a bit of an odd one...
Dell Inspiron 14z (2012) Review
Dell’s new Inspiron 14z combines strong performance with great looks in an affordable Ultrabook, but the screen and battery life could be better.
(3.5 out of 5)
Dell’s Inspiron Z series notebooks have long been known for offering solid portability at affordable prices. For 2012, the company has updated the 14-inch Inspiron 14z with Intel’s 3rd Generation Core Series processor and a brand new design that’s thin and light enough to make the system an Ultrabook. For $899 ($699 to start), the 14z provides solid performance and a premium design. Plus, this laptop includes a DVD drive. Does Dell’s value-priced Ultrabook do enough to win us over?
