It's been leaked and rumored before but today Dell has made its brand new XPS 12 official. Unlike its laptop siblings, the XPS 13 and XPS 15, the XPS 12 is a two-in-one.
The headline spec is that high-resolution display for sure. But here's what else to expect on the hardware front:
- 6th generation Intel Core m5 CPU
- 12.5-inch Full HD 1080p or 4K (3840x2160) touch display
- 8GB of RAM
- 128 or 256GB SSD internal storage
- Intel® HD Graphics 515
- 8MP rear camera
- 5MP front camera
- Full sized backlit chiclet keyboard
- Glass precision trackpad
- 2 x Thunderbolt 3 USB-C ports supporting Power in / charging, PowerShare, Thunderbolt 3 (40Gbps bi-directional), USB 3.1 Gen 2 (10Gbps), VGA, HDMI, Ethernet and USB-A via Dell Adapter (sold separately)
- Stereo Speaker, Dual Microphones
- 30Wh battery
Like the rest of the new XPS line the XPS 12 boasts premium materials in its construction. Round front there's Gorilla Glass protecting that 4K display and the whole thing is encased in a Magnesium Alloy unibody frame with a soft touch paint finish. Without being too specific, Dell says the keyboard attaches magnetically with a "unique design." At 2.8lbs in weight for the tablet and keyboard, it's light enough to throw in a bag and take with you everywhere you go.
The Thunderbolt 3 ports are now a common feature across all the latest XPS products, and as we found out back at Computex when it launched, it uses a USB-C connector. So you get all the benefits of both standards from one port.
The XPS 12 will be available starting in November in the U.S. from Dell.com with a base price of $999. Be sure to keep an eye out for our hands-on with the new XPS 12.
