Summary: I've never been a real techie. I'm fairly good with technology, but I've always been frustrated with aspects of it; as a result, I've never been IN LOVE with a piece of technology...until the XPS 12 with i5 processor. I thought we were going to enjoy four or five years of pure bliss together. I was wrong. One night I hit the power button to be greeted by a message stating that my hard drive couldn't be found. I had it for 10 days. I was absolutely crushed. CRUSHED!
Summary: This is a solid computer/tablet. The flip screen and integral keyboard work extremely well. They key to this device is that it is a fully functional Windows computer. It is reasonably fast for basic tasks (e.g. Word, Power Point, Excel). I would not recommend this for any sort of high-powered computing (e.g. gaming). The battery so far seems excellent.
Summary: We really like this laptop. It is great for multiuse and works well with the new Windows 8.1 operating system. The fact it can convert to a tablet is very useful. It is not too heavy for such use either.
Summary: This ultrabook is very fast - it starts up and shuts down in seconds and the graphics are beautiful. I use it much more in laptop than tablet mode, but when I do prefer the tablet, it works very well. The touchscreen works great with Win8, and I find that it's often more convenient than using the mouse. It's light and thin, which I like as a frequent traveler.
Summary: This computer has all the features I was looking for when I bought it for my wife. The one thing I wish I could have changed was having Windows 7 instead of Windows 8. The speed of the solid state drive is fantastic, as well as the back-lit keyboard.
Best of the convertable Windows 8 laptop tablets, highly recommended

Summary: This is one of a new breed of convertible laptops created to take advantage of the Windows 8 paradigm, which allows use as both as tablet and a laptop. While this category is expected to grow, right now, there are essentially only a modest number of entrants, and only two that could be reasonably be called innovative: The Dell XPS 12 (this one), and the Lenovo Yoga 13.
One of the Best Ultrabook, but it should be for the price.

Summary: It feels like a premium product when it is in your hands, great screen quality (some issues with text due to Drivers) however I do wish it was a little higher than 1080p, many Ultrabooks in the same price range now come with more than a 1080 res. So for such a premium product from Dell I would have expected the same, however 1080p is still perfect.
