Dell intros '14in screen, 13in body' notebook

World's thinnest 'full function' laptop, apparently

Security for virtualized datacentres

Dell took the wraps of its compact, "14in display in a 13in body" Inspiron 14z notebook at the IFA consumer electronics show in September, but now it has formally launched the XPS 14z, a skinnier version.

Specs for the 23mm-thick, 2kg Dell XPS 14z are what you'd expect: second-gen Intel Core i5 and i7 - aka Sandy Bridge - CPUs; 6-8GB of 1333MHz DDR 3 memory; 500-750GB of 7200rpm hard drive storage, with a 256GB SSD as an option too; slot-load optical drive; 2.4GHz/5GHz 802.11n; Bluetooth 3.0; USB 3.0 and HDMI.

Graphics are driven by Intel's integrated GPU, though you can spec in Nvidia chippery which will work alongside the iGP to give some extra welly when needed.

Both chips drive a 1280 x 720 or 1366 x 768 display - the choice is yours.

There's no word on UK pricing yet - Update: it'll start at £799 inc VAT - but it'll come out over here on 15 November after a 1 November US debut. There it will cost from $999 (£625). ®
