It also has three USB ports, one of which doubles as an eSATA port (which can recharge gadgets even when the system is turned off). On the multimedia front, it has two headphone ports, a mic port, and an ExpressCard/34 slot rounds out the selection.
The Dell Studio 14z I took for review comes with a 2.1-GHz Intel Core 2 Duo T6500 CPU, 3GB of DDR3 RAM, and Nvidia 9400M graphics card. These combined to deliver an excellent performance. The Dell Studio 14z felt zippy. At one point, I had eight windows open on the desktop, including Microsoft Word, and still was able to switch between programs with ease. Ditto with Web surfing: we had a seamless experience in Internet Explorer, with several tabs open, including.
