Dell re-introduces their Inspiron 13z and 14z laptops, which have been slimmed down to 1-inch thickness and aluminum back with additional metal finish near the touchpad. I think this is a great move for a $600 laptop as it makes the laptop sleeker and more usable from portability standpoint.
One more thing I would like to see improved?
If Dell could just cut out the optical DVD drive, which most of us don’t need anyways and slim the laptop to near 3/4 of an inch, it would make the 13z and 14z much lighter plus the battery would last longer. For people who absolutely need a DVD, Dell can offer an external option. And yes, having a Dell-supported DVD-burning (into ISO) software could also help alleviate those users who need to watch movies contantly.
It’s a great laptop and I would recommend it, I personally just detest the bulky DVD slot.
