    I have the L1702x. What is so great about the JBL speakers? They sound average. And the WAVES thing doesn't make anything sound any better...well to me. I'm spoiled by the sound of full speakers and my Westone 3 n_n

    Exactly.

    Compared to a good stereo, of course the XPS speakers don't have the presence, depth or range. Compared to most laptops, the XPS speakers sound great! It all depends on what you compare to. For a mid-priced laptop, the speakers are surprisingly good.

    I agree. Most laptops I have owned, crappy speakers were the norm. The XPS speakers do a pretty good job. I watched movies and listened to music and they filled my room without issue.

    To produce the XPS 15z, Dell had to make a few sacrifices and one of the them is the speakers. We all want the next XPS line to be thinner and lighter but I don't know that many people would be willing to sacrifice the speakers and subwoofer of the XPS to make that happen.

    It also needs better cooling, a thinner design would make this impossible.

    With Kepler, Ivy Bridge, and Windows 8 coming out this year, Dell has a real opportunity to make the XPS line stand out. Or it could really fall on their faces if they can't make it thinner and lighter. I wonder if they'll add a touchscreen to the 1080p monitors.

    I dont need laptop as slim as ultrabook, I know the power for those is not as good. If they could slimmer the XPS now a bit and make it lighter, I am happy to get one, but provided that they still have RG+B 1080p screen and JBL sound. The design of XPS is ok, but I like the old 1640 design more, it was very unique.
    I am still hanging in there with my Inspiron 6000 that I got six years ago, it is still running strong, but slow of course, I want to new Dell pls....
