Dell introduces the XPS 11 Ultrabook – kills what we loved about laptops

Today Dell announced its latest carbon fiber and aluminum creation, the XPS 11. The manufacturer’s latest machine features a beautiful design and 2560 x 1440 resolution. In addition, Dell takes a cue from Lenovo’s IdeaPad YOGA and introduces a hinge that allows the screen to flip back 360-degrees behind the keyboard.

Did we mention that Dell flattened the keyboard so much that you might confuse it with a Microsoft Touch Cover? We don't know about you, but to us, one of the main factors laptop machines still have going for themselves, over their tablet counterparts, are the keyboards. Why Dell, why?

If you can get past the flat and motionless keyboard, you should be able to enjoy the machine. The unit’s battery size, RAM capacity, and SSD storage sizes have not yet been released by the company.

Dell plans to launch the unit this holiday season with an Intel Core i5 Haswell CPU (which by then, you should probably just wait for Intel’s next microarchitecture).

Do you like Dell’s latest creation or are you shaking your head?
