Great little notebook with BIG PC features and power...

  • Summary: After several months of using it, we're very pleased with our Dell XPS 14z Laptop/Notebook that features Intel i7 processor, 8 GB RAM and 256 GB Solid State Drive (SSD). At just 4.12 lbs with SSD it was/maybe still is Dell's thinnest and lightest full-featured 14" laptop with an internal optical drive." Did I say thin? It's thin, light, and includes a lot of processing power for the size.

Almost a perfect notebook...

  • Summary: If you want a light weight notebook for web surfing, presentation and a bit of typing then this notebook is the best, awesome!!! but I don't recommend this for spreadsheet and word processor work, you will surely want to throw this computer against the wall...
  • Pros: The specs is actually awesome, I bought the i7 2640,750GB,8G RAM, backlit keyboard is nice during wee-wee hours, graphics nvidia is great, sound is also very nice compared to other notebooks, weight is good... overall performance is very very good.
  • Cons: I definitely agree with the KEYBOARD LAYOUT, its a mess !! combining the arrow keys with the page up/page down is a very very very bad idea, I bought this notebook for programming and I'm not happy with it. I'll stick with my L502X...

  • Summary: very nice features and hardware, on a very busy use unit tends to heat up quite a lot. has a cool battery feature which when plugged-in there is an option not to charge it. So, you can use it direct to power without straining the battery life span. As the specs suggests the high end hardware delivers in terms of performance.
  • Pros: good hardware set, design and performance.
  • Cons: not so good battery life, bloatware, not so good heat management, very few ports

Good Idea gone Bad!

Robertintpa, CNET
19 March 2012
  • Summary: - you wonder how anything like this gets past first level marketing or user testing. What copy writer or programmer wants to hit two keys to pgup/pgdn, or three keys to highlight a line. Stop removing keys from the keyboard, it's still a standard way to use a computer. People don't all use mice. It simply makes the laptop unusable - RETURNED!
  • Pros: Glossy Screen, lighter weight, good size screen, stylish.
  • Cons: Keyboard, Keyboard, Keyboard. The 14z/15z without a proper PgUp, PgDn, Home and End Key? Press THREE keys to highlight a line. It's beyond a bad idea.

  • Summary: From a former many year Dell fan, I have been extremely disappointed that support has gone downhill, and now seems to be oriented toward squeezing you for additional paid support contracts even when you have a multi-year warrantee. Incidentally, I am a very technically savvy computer user.
  • Pros: The best online configuration tools.
  • Cons: Poor support
