Dell has just launched the XPS-15z, their newest and possibly one of their most powerful notebooks to date at an event earlier today in Makati. The XPS-15z combines power, mobility and style in a package that even the most jaded PC user can’t ignore. Built with a gorgeous aluminum chassis and equipped with Intel’s Core i series of processors, the XPS-15z is one of the prettiest notebooks we’ve seen. The notebook will apparently come in two flavors – a Core i5-2430 (running at 2.4 GHz), 4GB, NVIDIA GeForce GT 525M 1GB variant that’ll retail for Php 62,000 and a Core i7-2640M (running at 2.8 GHz), 8GB, NVIDIA GeForce GT 525M 2GB variant that’ll retail for Php 89,900.
Externally, the XPS-15z is extremely pretty, and it’s definitely thinner than most notebooks in it’s particular class. The overall look and feel of the device screams premium to us, from the unconventional position of the hinge right down to the slot loading optical disk drive. The internals are impressive as well, and we reckon that the XPS-15z will be able to handle whatever you want to throw at it with ease. The only issue we have with it is it’s price tag – the Core i5 variant will cost an impressive Php 62,000 according to Dell’s brochure, which definitely means that it’s not a gadget purchase you’ll be taking lightly. Question is, is it worth it? We’ll have a definitive answer for you once we get our demo unit in.
