Geek deals 549 off a loaded Dell Inspiron 15z ultrabook

first_imgWhat do you get when you cross a hulking desktop replacement laptop with a puny netbook? You get something like this Dell Inspiron 15z ultrabook — it has the size of an slim ultrabook and the performance of a full-sized laptop.Dell bucked the trends of ultrabooks a bit when they released the 15z, keeping the spacious 15.6-inch HD screen and built-in DVD burner that are most often left out of ultrabooks. Despite the larger screen and optical drive, they were still able to keep the weight down to just 4.7 lbs with a thickness of only 0.85 inches.They didn’t stop at the screen though, as this model packs a very speed 3rd gen Core i7 processor and NVIDIA GeFOrce GT 630M 2GB graphics. That’s more than enough performance for the average user and even adds some gaming horsepower to the mix.Keeping with the requirements to be branded an ultrabook, a 32GB mSATA SSD is used to speed up boot and application loading times, while a 500GB spinning hard drive is also installed for the extra storage capacity. The chassis sports a sleek aluminum finish with a contrasting dark interior that provides for an overall pleasing look.There are plenty of ports on this little powerhouse too, with four USB 3.0 ports, HDMI video output, media card reader, and more. You even get a standard backlit keyboard and Dell’s 1 year on-site warranty at no extra cost.The previous low price we’d seen on this model was in the $800-900 range, sometimes with a bonus gift card, but this is the lowest out-the-door price we’ve ever seen on this model and is an outright steal for such a loaded ultrabook.Dell Inspiron 15z Core i7 Ultrabook w/ 2GB GeForce GT 630M for $689.99 + free shipping (reg. $1,238.99 | use coupon 69X$3WBP4NT72Z) Update: This deal has expired, but you can find the latest Dell Inspiron 15z ultrabook deals & coupons from our friends at LogicBuy.Our other top deals:ASUS PA248Q 24.1-inch 1920×1200 IPS LED-backlit LCD Monitor for $259.99 + free shipping (reg. $369.99 | use coupon EMCXTVP48)Refurb Linksys WRT120N Wireless N Home Router for $23.74 + free shipping (reg. $29.99 | use coupon HSDISH5)Garmin GPSMAP 78 2.6-Inch Waterproof Floatable GPS Navigator for $216.40 + free shipping (reg. $349.99)last_img read more
