Announced at this year’s IFA, the thin-and-light XPS 14z has yet to launch in the U.S. and Europe, but Dell had reportedly made available the official online product page for the notebook before the page was taken down.

According to Laptoping, the 14-inch XPS 14z will include Sandy Bridge CPU options as expected and up to 8GB RAM. Discrete Nvidia GPU options with Optimus will be made available as well, along with SDD and HDD options, HDMI-out with 3D support, backlit keyboard, slot-loading DVD drive and an 8-cell battery for over 6 hours of battery life. The 1366x768 resolution screen itself will have its own edge-to-edge glass for protection.

The notebook will also make use of Intel WiDi, a multi-card reader, USB 3.0 and Waves MaxxAudio speakers, which we suspect to be something similar to Beats Audio in select HP notebooks.

Overall, the Dell notebook will weigh a little over 4 pounds (1.81+kg) depending on configuration, but will be quite thin at only 0.9 inches (2.29cm). It will succeed the discontinued XPS 14 as part of a revamp on Dell’s XPS and ultrathin offerings.

Even with the plethora of leaked info, pricing and availability are still not known. But with the product page supposedly already set, we don’t imagine the official launch being too far off.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
