I like this 15Z but I have been disapointed in the lighted keyboard for following reasons...
1) Very shiny surface on keys but are hard to see unless you have very good ambient light or the keyboard is lit.
2) The user has few options to change the way the keyboard lights work. The stock Windows 7 allows the user to program the lights to your liking but Dell has locked the user out of that capability. By default, the lights are "dim" (aka...unreadable) when you power it up. You can change that to be brighter but it defaults back to dim if you power your laptop off. Even if you adjust the brightness, the keyboard will go off after a minute or so of unuse. The lights will come back on when you start typing again. That might be a reasonable strategy when on battery but mine is typically not on battery. I would prefer to (a) change the default brightness to high and (b) increase the time before the lighted keys turn off. That user option is not available with the way Dell has locked out the user.
Otherwise, I think this is a great laptop. I wanted to give it a 5 but I knocked off a star due to the inability of a user to make adjustments to the lighted keyboard.

I have used the laptop for almost a month now and the experience is excellent.
The design is very elegant and sleek. The display quality is very good. I have played a couple of high graphics games and they work without any problem.
The sound system, webcam, wireless, bluetooth etc work great. The battery life is about 2-3 hours with brightest display. Backlit keyboard is convenient for me to type and looks great.
I installed Linux (dual boot) on the machine and it was installed without slightest trouble. All the devices work equally well on Linux.
I use the laptop for programming, gaming and surfing. All of these work just fine.
On the downside, the laptop heats up very fast when playing high graphics games. It does not shut down or anything, but heat is too much to hold it on lap. Also, the scroll facility of touchpad does not work with the default windows7 installation which is annoying. Small size of the keyboard means you have to use 'Fn' key to do Home/End/Pg up/Pg down while typing.
Also, the price of the laptop shoots up higher than lennovo which has 8GB RAM and i7 processor.
Overall it is a great laptop, with great look and feel as well as performance. I am happy I got it.
-Very well made.
-Great performance. I play BF3 on it on all high settings.
-Reminiscent of the Macbook pro design, right down to the backlit keyboard and mechanized DVD drive.
-Mini-displayport out. Works with iMac display port.
-Network port will not sync @ gig speeds after standby. You need to pull the cable and reconnect. No big deal if you don't care about hardwire network.
-Screen is not 1080p only 1366x768.
Overall very pleased with purchase.
I bought the laptop in November and received it first week of December.
Two weeks ago the screen got completely blank. I don't carry the laptop with me. It's always placed in a desk. Realized that dell is not a reliable pc anymore.
Dell customer support is horrible. Make me wait 1 hour without any response until a manager comes to the conclusion that I have to pay 500.00 because the damage was caused externally and it's not covered by the warranty they offered. That computer has been sitting in a desk since was bought.
Last dell laptop I buy, they haven't learnt how to deal with customers.
