Wireless charging
 
Dell Lattitude Z, charges wirelesslyIt wasn't long ago that the first pictures of the Latitude Z popped up on the internet, all we knew then was it had a 16" screen, an Intel processor of some sort and a sleek grey finish to it. Well, today, more information has emerged about the executive notebook.
 
According to a report, the machine will "most likely" feature "advanced wireless capabilities, perhaps even wireless charging". This is very promising and will bring great progress in the market of notebooks and netbooks. We are curious to learn how this technology works and if charging times or battery life are affected at all.
 
Stephen Schuckenbrock, the President of Dell's large enterprises division said that "Design is important, and we recognise that, and that even more important than design is functionality, and this is a good packaging of the two” in response to a plea for information about the Latitude Z. This further backs up the fact that it will feature the wireless charging technology.
 
The only other information we have at the moment is that it will be displayed publically within the coming weeks and it will be priced at "a great deal more" than £700.

Dell are planning to launch a sub 10mm thick notebook, nearly twice as thin as the Macbook Air.

weight of laptops isnt realy a issue with me (used to lug my ex's alienware lappy around - dont ask why she got an alienware one), the size is more what im bothered about, depending on the spec and cost i realy might have to buy one of these!

God I got to get my hands on one of those just to see what it feels like to use.

Sounds scary, almost fearing I might break it >.<

Wanna take it apart too >.<

13.4 inch tea tray if the specs aren't up to snuff. I know it is 9.9mm thick but if it features specifications that are awfully applied then it doesn't really work.
Oh and I am loving the fact that it doesn't slant down like the Mac-air.

Edit:
Why would I give my e-mail address?

I'd start to worry about the flex in the product when things start to get slim.

If the build quality is good and the spec is decent i could see myself getting one

Its bound to be a low-end Atom of some sort. I dont think you could cool anything better in that limited space. Also there would be no internal DVD so you'd have to lug around an external...and tbh could you even fit any of the common ports (USB, Ethernet, TV-Out..etc) in something that slim?
