Dell XPS 14

 

A beautifully designed MacBook Pro rival with great specs.

Solid unibody aluminium chassis with soft-touch, Excellent battery life, Flexible specs including 3G, High-res screen, Good value

Chunky and heavy, TN screen with average viewing angles, No touch for Windows 8 (yet?)

Dell XPS 14z

 

Lighter and thinner than the 13in MacBook Pro, yet packing a 14in screen into its compact chassis, this premium laptop is both sexy and powerful.

Looks good, Feels even better, 14in screen in 13in chassis, Comfortable backlit keyboard, Slim yet powerful

Average screen, Awkward connectivity, Only two USB ports, Mediocre battery life

Dell XPS 14z review

 

Our favourite multimedia machine of 2011 just slimmed down with Dell's XPS 14z

Solid and robust ; Attractive design ; Portable multimedia dream

Lack of ports ; Gamers left out of equation

Dell has introduced two new ultrabooks to its XPS range in the shape of the XPS 14 and XPS 15 and Pocket-lint has been lucky enough to get some hands-on

Dell XPS 14z

 

Dell has some stiff competition at the moment. Apple has never been stronger in laptops, its Pro and Air ranges are some of the nicest-looking and more powerful computers on the market. Then there are Intel's new darlings, the Ultrabooks , lapping up a...

Design, keyboard and trackpad, battery life

Low resolution screen, disappointing amount of cack software installed, fan noise

In some ways, it's a little hard to tell what market this laptop is aimed at. It's a powerful enough machine for home use. The problem is, an i7 with more memory would be the minimum spec needed for a high-end setup for video editing and gaming.

The Dell XPS 14z is a smaller brother to the existing Dell XPS 15z which we've already reviewed, continuing Dell's focus on design and quality of construction.

Dell XPS 14 review

 

Dell's XPS line gets bigger

Excellent look and feel ; bright screen ; plenty of options

Not cheap ; SSD options expensive ; Design a bit Apple-derived

We thought the XPS 13 was brilliant, but it had one problem - screen real estate. The XPS 14 solves this and is a really rather fine laptop. The XPS 13 wasn't the cheapest Ultrabook around and neither is the XPS 14, but we're really looking forward to...

Dell XPS 14z review

 

An ultraportable version of our favourite multimedia laptop

Slim and light multimedia machine ; Excellent battery life ; Sandy Bridge technology ; Slick design ; Fantastic keyboard

Dim screen ; Less graphically able than 15z ; Stingy ports

We first checked out Dell's XPS 14z at IFA, a slightly dinkier version of its excellent XPS 15z laptop. The XPS 14z hits stores today and we've already spent a few days snuggling up and getting to know it.

Dell XPS 14 review

 

You get decent gaming performance and a high resolution screen, but it's heavy and comparatively expensive

Dell XPS 14z review

 

The diminuitive frame and weight of just under 2kg mean that the XPS 14z is easy to carry around, even if it is far from attaining 'ultraportable' status. It should stand up to a battering if you do spend a lot of time on the road, though, and we're...

Dell's XPS 14z could be accused of looking rather like a MacBook Pro. If this was a deliberate ploy, it’s also a risky one, as few laptops can stand comparison with the MacBook Pro's design, build and feature set and still walk away with their...
