60% Dell Studio 15z
Source: Laptop Mag English
This lightweight 15-inch notebook offers good performance and Intel’s wireless display technology in a sleek package. 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. However, this notebook runs hot on the bottom, and some may prefer to get the version of this system with discrete graphics for not much more money.

15.6": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.5 kg: This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
