Dell’s new ‘thinnest’ laptop isn’t even as thin as the 2.5-year old MacBook Pro

9 to 5 Mac

We were expecting a MacBook Air-like device. It turns out Dell’s new product, dubbed “Thinnest 15-inch PC on the planet” isn’t thinner than the 15-inch MacBook Pro I gave up a year ago for an Air. That’s the same one that came out with the Unibody manufacturing process in October 2008.

Dell’s 15-inch XPS 15z is .97 inches thick compared to the MacBook PRo’s .95 inches. It does weigh in at slightly less than the MacBook Pro (which is due for an update soon as well)

All of that being said, the XPS 15Z looks like a solid, loaded Sandy Bridge package for just $1000 – except the Windows OS of course. Imagery and video below:
