Dell XPS 12 review

 

It's indisputable that Dell is going through a pretty tough time of things at the moment. The firm has suffered massive a massive drop in profits as the PC sector continues to decline, and gets replaced with tablets, phones and other smart devices....

Brilliantly built, great materials and design, fantastic screen, enormously powerful, flexible screen is terrific for flights or watching video,

Slightly expensive, too heavy to use as a tablet for long

What at first might seem like a gimmick seems to be something of a double-edged sword. In fact, it's not a gimmick, the rotating screen has some very real uses, and even as a tablet it's perfectly usable, if a little heavy.

Dell XPS 12 Haswell Ultrabook (late 2013) review

 

The stereo speakers are a little tinny, but loud enough for listening to music or for streaming video. In fact our only complaint about the basic design is that the XPS 12 doesn't include an ethernet interface or card slot along with its Wi-Fi, two USB...

If you’re looking for a lightweight tablet then look elsewhere. The Dell XPS 12 is primarily intended as a powerful working laptop, and its fourth-generation Haswell processor provides performance and battery life that could justify its high price. The...

Dell XPS 12 convertible Ultrabook review: a tablet and laptop hybrid

 

That 12.5in touchscreen is a real eye-catcher too. Its 1920x1080 resolution is very bright and sharp and looks great when watching HD video or browsing your photo library. The use of an IPS panel also ensures that it has really wide viewing angles –...

The tablet mode isn’t entirely successful, but the XPS 12 will definitely earn its keep as a powerful, lightweight Ultrabook that you can use for work on the road or in the office. The tablet mode is really just a nice bonus for when you want to have a...

Dell XPS 12 convertible Ultrabook

 

Dell XPS 12 convertible Ultrabook, is supposed to be a laptop/tablet hybrid, but it's clutching at straws when claiming to be a tablet. Think of this more as a decent laptop, that can sort of be used as a tablet.

Dell XPS 12 Convertible Ultrabook Review

 

Since the advent of Window 8 and its touch-centric interface, notebook manufacturers have been striving to find a balance between typical form factors

With the advent of Windows 8, convertible Ultrabooks are quickly becoming the new meme for notebook manufacturers. Some provide an

Dell XPS 12 review

 

Dell's XPS 12 is an ultrabook with a difference, featuring a flip-over touchscreen that enables it to be used as either a tablet or a conventional clamshell laptop, making it a good match for the capabilities of Microsoft's Windows 8 operating system.

Touchscreen and keyboard handy for Windows 8, sturdy aluminium and carbon fibre construction

Integral battery, lacking mobile broadband, Ethernet or docking port

Dell's XPS 12 is a neat system that shows how well Windows 8 can work with both keyboard and touchscreen, but few I/O ports and no access for maintenance make it less suitable for a business system

Dell XPS 12 review

 

Dell's XPS 12 is a stylish, ingeniously designed hybrid, but it's still a better Ultrabook than it is a tablet

The glass touchpad is equally luxurious, with a silky finish that makes for a lovely feel under the finger. It’s almost flush with the wristrest, so invoking Windows 8’s edge-swipe gestures is easy and reliable. We had to do some fettling in the...

Dell XPS 12 convertible Ultrabook (2013 model)

 

Dell's XPS 12 convertible Ultrabook uses a fourth-generation Intel Core i7 CPU and can last almost all day when running on its battery

Well built ; Fast Wi-Fi ; Good quality Full HD touchscreen ; Battery life

Poor touchpad ; Limited ports and slots ; Can feel heavy at times ; Had trouble waking from deep sleep

Dell's XPS 12 is a dual-purpose Ultrabook that performs very well as a tablet (albeit a heavy one). It build on last year's model by adding a fourth-generation Intel Core i7 CPU, and this has improved its battery life dramatically. However, it has a...

Dell XPS 12 Ultrabook review: Haswell refresh adds performance

 

Dell's cleverly designed laptop/tablet improves with new CPUs. It runs faster and lasts longer, but is still premium priced.

Keyboard not exposed in tablet mode ; Outstanding battery life ; Includes 802.11ac Wi-Fi adapter

Heavy, especially when held in one hand ; Occasional delay in screen-orientation switch ; Only two USB ports

Dell's XPS 12 is better as a notebook than as a tablet, but it remains one of the best convertibles on the market.
