It looks like Dell is poised and ready to have another stab at the luxury, high end notebook market, with a rival to Apple’s MacBook Air coming up over them thar hills later today.
According to a report from The Wall Street Journal, Dell’s shiny ultra-thin offering, called the XPS 15z, will be the thinnest 15-inch laptop on the planet with prices starting at $999.
As you may well have observed, that’s the same price as the MacBook Air, except that Apple’s finest only comes with a piddly 11-inch screen, so it’s a case of ‘game on!’.
From what we can see there’s also a DVD/CD slot in there and a ‘chiclet’ style keyboard too. Which is rather nice.
We hope to get more info later, but for now, Dell have already released a teaser video which they hope will send your credit card into involuntary spasms.
Update: it turns out it’s not even slightly thin, so the MacBook Air is unlikely to be troubled by this bloated beast..
