The Dell XPS 14z is a smaller brother to the existing Dell XPS 15z which we’ve already reviewed, continuing Dell’s focus on design and quality of construction.
The Dell XPS 14z was announced in China recently and we’re yet to see a definitive announcement for the UK, US or Europe. But with Dell World 2011 about to start (12-14 October in Austin, TX), we strongly suspect that it will see a global launch this week.?

Like Star Wars’ Anthony Daniels (C3PO) before them, the original screenwriters of Toy Story, and wordsmiths behind Activision’s forthcoming game/toy hybrid Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure, have dismissed 3D as being a gimmick.
