Dell XPS 12 review (2013)

7 January 2014
  • Summary: Last fall marked a renaissance in laptop design. With Windows 8 on the horizon, manufacturers built truly exciting notebooks with high-res touch screens, clever back-flipping hinges, superb construction, and even displays on both sides. With touch screens as a focal point, it seemed that laptop manufacturers were finally ready to compete with Apple and offer premium laptops that were actually worth buying.
  • Pros: Excellent 1080p touchscreen display, Solid keyboard and audio quality, Good battery life
  • Cons: Touchpad is still finnicky, Few ports, Cumbersome as a tablet

Dell XPS 12 (2013) Review

21 October 2013
  • Summary: We didn’t get a chance to check out the Dell XPS 12 prior to its Haswell upgrade, but the current version of the hybrid ultrabook / tablet has a lot going for it. It’ll be able to keep up with many of the tasks most people will throw at it, has a great battery life and a unique feel that sets it apart from other hybrid machines.

Dell XPS 12 (2013)

LAPTOP Magazine
16 August 2013
  • Summary: With its innovative flip hinge, full-HD touch screen, and svelte and sturdy design, the Dell XPS 12 was already one of the best Windows 8 laptop-tablet hybrids. But thanks to a fourth-generation Intel Core processor and a higher-capacity battery, you now get 9.5 hours of endurance. Plus, Dell managed to trim a few ounces from the design.
  • Pros: Innovative flip-screen design, More than 9 hours of battery life, Beautiful high-res display, Strong performance
  • Cons: No SD Card slot, Heavy for a tablet

Dell XPS 12 Review

1 August 2013
  • Summary: With a starting price of Rs 94,990, the XPS 12 is one expensive notebook, even for an Ultrabook. While it does have a very good feature set, behind the fancy new rotating screen, it’s a very average performing notebook. The hybrid nature of the device is fun to use, but we’re sure that the novelty will wear off after a while.

Dell XPS 12 convertible Ultrabook

2 April 2013
  • Summary: 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 bit of fun, or let the kids loose with apps such as FreshPaint.

Dell XPS 12

20 March 2013
  • Summary: The Dell XPS 12 is a 12-inch laptop with a screen that flips over to become a tablet. With a great display, excellent build quality and decent performance, it's an ideal compromise between laptop and tablet, although it's expensive -- you could buy both for the same price.
  • Cons: Pretty pricey; A couple of minor software issues when using it in tablet mode; Windows 8 app store doesn't have a lot to offer yet.

Dell XPS 12 Review: A Jack of All Trades Flipscreen Ultrabook

22 February 2013
  • Conclusion: While the XPS 12 isn’t flawless, it’s a very interesting laptop nonetheless. To my knowledge, no one else is really trying this flipscreen approach; that’s either good news or bad news, depending on why most companies take an alternative route. If they’re doing it because making a good flipscreen is too challenging, costly, and/or prone to breakage that would be bad.
