Dell XPS 11 Review

28 May 2014
  • Summary: The XPS 11 tries to reinvent the wheel in an attempt to stand out in a crowded and competitive market of both Ultrabooks and tablets. As a tablet, it can do more than your standard iPad or Android tablet, but then you will encounter Windows’ issues of not having a cohesive touch experience when you...

Dell XPS 11 review: Convertible ultrabook is more tablet than notebook

27 March 2014
  • Summary: Dell positions the XPS 11 as a premium tablet that has a keyboard as a bonus feature. But I kind of have to wonder how big the market is for high-priced tablets with crappy keyboards.

Dell XPS 11 Video Review

9 March 2014
  • Excerpt: The Dell XPS 11 is one of the sexiest Windows 8.1 2-in-1 convertible Windows tablets/Ultrabooks on the market. Looking at it will inspire a strong case of geek lust: it's super-slim with clean lines and a very attractive and classy looking carbon fiber and metal casing.

  • Conclusion: The Dell XPS 11 convertible ultrabook/tablet comes with an incredibly high-resolution screen and a lovely carbon fiber chassis, but a couple of large flaws keep it from outrunning the pack.
  • Pros: 253 ppi, 2,560-by-1,440-resolution screen. HDMI port. Very thin and light. Premium build.
  • Cons: Uncomfortable, quirky membrane keyboard. Middling battery performance.

Review Dell XPS 11-9P33 Convertible

20 January 2014
  • Summary: Lots of pixels, mediocre performance. You cannot decide whether to get a laptop or a tablet? Then a convertible such as the Dell XPS 11 might be the ideal compromise. Our review will show how this jack-of-all-trades with a Core i5 CPU, a QHD display and an SSD fares during actual usage.
  • Pros: Lightweight, sturdy chassis, High-resolution IGZO display, Precise touchpad made from glass, Power-efficient and silent, Great battery life, Supports the 802.11ac Wi-Fi standard, Next to the razor-sharp display, mostly the lightweight chassis with its great build quality - worthy for an XPS serie...
  • Cons: Touch keyboard, Low 3D performance levels, RAM not upgradeable, Only 12 months of warranty, A "real" keyboard which prolific writers are going to miss dearly when using this machine. While the touch keyboard is a unique and unusual design element (sufficing for short texts), it may not have been ...

Expert Review

3 January 2014
  • Conclusion: Granted, this two-in-one is not for everybody. Overall, though, we found the XPS 11 not only very easy to carry around with us, but not all that difficult to use. We've seen reviews slamming the unit's awful keyboard, but we think they gave up too quickly.
  • Pros: Well-built and attractive, Light and comfortable to hold and use, Converts to tablet mode, High-res display with stylus support, Decent speakers and cameras, Low bloatware load
  • Cons: Flat, capacitive keyboard not conducive to touch typing, Stylus not included

Dell XPS 11 Review

LAPTOP Magazine
12 December 2013
  • Summary: Our biggest issue with the XPS 11 is its flat keyboard. We know why Dell tried this experiment -- to make the device slimmer and less awkward in tablet mode -- but the trade-off is an uncomfortable typing experience.

Dell XPS 11 review

TechRadar UK
8 April 2014
  • Summary: Is this gorgeous laptop-tablet hybrid worth the price of admission?
  • Pros: Attractive carbon fiber body, Stunning, sharp display, Pinpoint touchscreen, I loved the carbon fiber body of the XPS 11. It's a material you don't see very often on electronics - aside from the faux-patterned back of the Motorola Droid Maxx - and at the same time it does not look gaudy like carb...
  • Cons: Scratch-prone finish, Aggravating keyboard, Integrated graphics chug, While I could gush on for days about the Dell XPS 11's body, the same rubbery coating is also extremely susceptible to scuffing and scratches. Already a smudge magnet for oily fingerprints, this exterior developed some scars by...

Dell XPS 11

6 March 2014
  • Excerpt: If you’ve ever wondered what a Lenovo Yoga laptop might look and feel like without a traditional keyboard, the Dell XPS 11 has an answer. With a screen that can fold back 360 degrees and a lightly embossed keyboard reminiscent of a Microsoft Surface touch cover, the XPS 11 certainly feels much more...
