Pros:
1080p - Need I say more?
Fast Dual Core I7 processor
Thin - Almost as thin as MBP
Sleek design (complete ripoff of MBP)
Future proof - 2x USB 3.0
$800 cheaper than equivalent MBP

Cons:
No Quad Core option
A little loud
No Blu-Ray option (can't make BR drives thin enough to fit)

Overall:
If you are thinking about buying a MacBook Pro and dual booting to Windows, consider this instead. You can get a top of the line 15Z with a solid state HD for less than the entry point for a MBP.

I finally took the time to write this review.

Four months ago I decided to change my old notebook and buy a top notebook. After a lot of research I decided to pick this Dell XPS 15Z, due to its good hardware specifications, high screen resolution and good aluminium casing. No one can denies this notebook looks beautiful, but it doesn't worth the problems it brings.

To be more specific, I will write one by one the troubles that I have with this piece of problems.

1. As soon as I turned it on, I could already notice that the fan makes a strange noise once in a while. You can see further details about it if you google "XPS 15z grinding noise". There will be plenty of results to prove that maybe all the piece sold come with this problem.

2. After one or two months, the notebook started to show a blue screen of death whenever I would turn it on. For first I thought it was a hardware problem, since usually the BSoD is related to it. So I decided to use the Dell recovery tool, which basically restores your computer to the original factory image. When performing this procedure, the DataSafe tool (a backup tool provided by Dell) said all my files would be available on my Desktop after rebuilding the factory image. And yes, they there. However, what I didn't know was that all my files would be encrypted and that the DataSafe tool provided by Dell wouldn't be able to open them. Whenever I would try to open my files, the program would tell me the files were corrupted. Resuming everything, I lost all my files. I even tried to make use of the online support provided by Dell. A guy connected on my notebook and seemed to have no idea on what he was doing (he basically tried to open the files, the same thing I did).

I just got this laptop. I mean like 4 hours ago. Thanks to cloud and everything. I was ready to use it for work within couple of hours. Love Mozy, Dropbox. This is the second time I changed my laptop in 30 days. Last one broke down on me within a months return period. (That was Acer not Dell).

As programmer I don't need any high end laptops but recently I picked up video editing as one of my hobbies. That and I was really looking for high res screen to maximize productivity. On this laptop, I can open two files in 2 editors and work on them. Very useful during webdev.

So the good parts first:

Sleek looking
1080P
Overall good feeling to keyboard
Not too much bloatware (Acer was a nightmare cleaning up).

But it is not perfect. The 2 biggest issue for me right now are:

No separate home & end keys. As a programmer I need those keys. You can hold FN key and hit left or right arrow but I really wish they had regular home & end keys.
NO SLOT FOR LOCK!!! Almost all laptops come with a slot for locking via standard laptop locks. This one doesn't. Since I like to leave my laptop in office overnight every once in a while. Now I won't be able to lock it down. This is a big issue for me. You won't think that Dell would be missing such a basic thing on their laptops. Well I guess I should have looked at the pictures more closely.

I will update my review based on my experience.

I bought this as a replacement for my old Dell XPS M1530. The only change I made was adding a 256GB SSD drive. Now this thing is lightning fast. Dual core with Hyper-threading makes 4 cores. Why pay extra for a quad-core machine? Compared to the M1530 its half as thick, twice as light, and 40X faster. This same laptop on the Dell website was over $1400. So getting it here is definitely the way to go. I never had a laptop with a backlit keyboard so that's a plus. I would recommend this to ANYONE looking for a laptop replacement for their desktop.

My only complaint is that I run Ubuntu and it does not play nice with the Nvidia Optimus card. To resolve this install bumblebee drivers first.

After just two weeks of use I would have to say I am very pleased with this laptop. It's sleek, fast, lightweight and the screen is just about flawless. The touchpad as well as the backlit keyboard are responsive and easy to use. Battery life has been good and recharges fairly quickly. Wireless connection has been excellent. I was up and running within minutes of delivery. It was surprising that it came without any manual or even quickstart guide but turns out it wasn't needed. My only negative would be the anemic sound quality, but this isn't really a problem for me since I wasn't looking for a media machine as much as a good all-around work/personal computer. At this point I would definitely recommend this laptop.
