LAPTOP Magazine
16 August 2013
  • Summary: If you can't afford the XPS 12's $1,199 starting price, the $999 Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11s is smaller and lighter, and sports a brighter -- albeit lower-res -- screen. But if you're looking for a great notebook that can double as a tablet, the new and improved XPS 12 is a top pick.

Digitaltrends
21 April 2013
  • Conclusion: Dell’s attempt to create a non-compromising convertible laptop works as well as we could have hoped. The XPS 12 absolutely nails the fundamentals of display, endurance, and interface. We would be eager to recommend this device even if it were only an Ultrabook.
