Summary: With the 2-in-1, I found I got the most use out of it when I thought of it as an alternative to a laptop rather than to an iPad. It's a little heavier than an iPad, and with fewer apps, but has as many - if not more - capabilities for working. I use it primarily for my 9-5 job and blogging, so I appreciate the full Office suite, easy access to Excel, photo and video editing capabilities.
Fast Laptop but Movie Picture Quality is a Let Down

Summary: I really love this xps 11. It's fast, well-built, flexible, keyboard layout is superb, back-lit keyboard, very light, and absolutely gorgeous. I had no problem working on excel, word, and multiple windows open - without a hiccup. My biggest disappointment is the picture quality when watching a movie - it is pretty dim. I adjusted the colors and brightness but it still subpar (My sony pro 11, which is 1440p) has a much better picture quality than this.
Summary: First off -- The general description and details/shipping for this listing are off. It obviously doesn't weigh 5.5 lbs and shipping weight can't be 1 lb. :-) The device is 2.5 lbs on its own and the shipping wt is likely the 5 lb figure with power supply and packaging. 3.5 stars is what I'd really prefer to post at this time. It's better than okay and I like it, but... My initial experience with this unit (i5/4G/128G model, direct from Dell) was mostly positive.
This sets the standard for high end convertible laptops!

Summary: I ordered the XPS 11 direct from the Dell website, and have been using it now for four days. I had been using a Lenovo Yoga 11s for three weeks, but will be sending it back for a refund. Here's why. The Dell XPS 11 is more expensive. I upgraded to the 256gb SSD and paid $1,249. This is about $400 more than the Yoga 11s, and most of the other internal specs are identical, including a Core i5 processor, and 4gb of memory.
Tolles Gerät, leistungsfähig, hochwertig und praxisgerecht

Summary: Tolles hochwertiges Gerät, Lenovos Yoga kommt da bei weitem nicht heran. Ich hatte das neulich im Verbrauchermarkt befummelt. Sehr guter Bildschirm, Ausreichend lange Akku-Laufzeit, ich komme mit der Tastatur sehr gut zurecht. Ich bin aber kein 10-Finger-Schreiber, sondern ein 4-Finger-Hacker. Ich habe die Variante mit 128GB und mit Eingabestift, den ich auch fleißig mit OneNote nutze. Der 360° ist wirklich interessant.
