The Dell Inspiron 15Z comes with a 11 per cent discount using the code 3CXFWFM4$K3HDC at checkout. Doing so will bring the price of this Ultrabook to around £693, that includes delivery. Originally on sale for £899, Dell cut its price to £779 prior to applying the discount and threw in 90 days premium phone support.
The Inspiron 15Z is one of the many newer Ultrabooks that adopt a much bigger form factor, while ditching the SD-only approach for a hybrid one, which in this particular case means using a 32GB SSD with a 500GB hard disk drive spinning at 5400RPM.
Other features of this laptop include an Intel Core i5-3317U processor clocked at 1.7GHz that can be turbo boosted to 2.6GHz with 3MB L3 cache that is based on Ivy Bridge technology, 8GB of RAM, a 15.6in display with a 1,366x768 pixels and touchscreen capabilities, an Nvidia Geforce GT630M with 2GB of RAM, a DVD writer, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 15-months subscription to McAfee Security Center plus a 6-cell 44Whr battery.
Aesthetically, the 15Z is different from other laptops of a similar size. It weighs a mere 2.16Kg and is thinner than the 22mm limit suggested by Intel. It also has a large touchpad and a thin bezel, unlike many of its peers.
