The high-end model then really doesn’t make much practical sense since you’ll seldom use the touchscreen. We weren’t very impressed with the build quality either.
Summary: For just under $1,000, the Dell Studio 15z offers a lot of power in a thin (if polarizing) design, plus Intel’s innovative Wireless Display technology.
