Great laptop, the second time

David V., Newegg
22 May 2014
  • Summary: All in all it's a great laptop. If you see one somewhere else that offers free return shipping for a comparable price, I might rethink the purchase through newegg just in case your refurb doesn't work.
  • Pros: Great construction quality. Feels solid in your hands. Amazing keyboard for a laptop. Very powerful, can handle complex multitasking with ease.
  • Cons: First one died after less than a minute of use and Newegg charges for return shipping. Large screen border makes it bigger than many 12.5" laptops. There's a border around the keyboard too so it seems the overall size could decrease some.

Like It, but....

Karen P., Amazon
20 April 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this laptop because I wanted a tablet/laptop combination. While I like the computer, my only complaint is that I HATE Windows 8.0. The super-sensitivity of the touch screen is also hard to get used to because when you are working on the windows screen versus the desktop screen, what you are working on in the past shows up so you have to constantly get back to what you are working on.

Fast, small screen, heavy, good build quality

  • Summary: Dell's design for a convertible ultrabook is OK. The laptop is pretty generic -- reasonably fast, good enough battery life, smallish screen -- more or less portable, but heavier than it needs to be. This is due to its innovative hinge design that allows the screen to swivel 180 degrees and collapse onto the keyboard. In practice it works just fine and lets it be held as a tablet, but it's just too heavy to really be used in that state.

may want to by direct

  • Summary: I really liked this system. However at 30 days the mother board when out. Amazon and the shipper will not exchange it and I have had to go through Dell to get the repairs done. I would advise to purchase directly from Dell. I spent and hour getting all the information transfered into my name. Frustrating and I am not sure it was worth the little bit of money I saved.

Promising but issues to be aware of

VishG, Dell

  • Summary: I have had this hybrid for over a month now -- a 4GB RAM/128 GB SSD configuration. While the whole package seems quite promising, there are a few issues that a new buyer needs to be aware of:

Could Have Been Great

xjf1776, Amazon
6 January 2014
  • Summary: I purchased the latest iteration of the XPS 12 with i5 Haswell CPU during the Christmas holidays. It is a well built laptop with a gorgeous full HD screen. In terms of weight, the unit is relatively light given the carbon fibre construction. I really enjoy using the laptop as a tablet. The hinge on the unit feels sturdy. It may get a little uncomfortable using it as a tablet for extended periods because of the weight but I wasn't too bothered by it.
