Dell XPS 12 now available for purchase starting at $999

Following its announcement in early October, the new Dell XPS 12 2-in1 is now available to purchase directly from Dell's online store. For prices, the Dell XPS 12 starts at $999 for the 128GB model with a 1920 x 1080 touch display. That price jumps up to a heftier $1,299 for the 256GB model with a 4K display.

To recap, outside of the storage and display differences, each XPS 12 model packs a 6th generation Intel m5-6Y54 processor clocked at 2.7GHz. From there, you're looking at a 12.5-inch screen, 8GB of RAM, and 8MP rear camera and a 5MP front-facing shooter. The 2-in-1 also packs 2 Thunderbolt 3 ports, a headset jack, an SD card reader, and Noble Lock. All of this is packed into a good looking chassis that can be separated to act as a tablet.

  • Yiiipppiiiiieeeeeee.... :D
  • Definitely getting this over the SP4. Thank you Dell for including modern IO in this device.
  • I'm still with N3000 series
  • This, or Lumia 950?
  • Phone v/s Laptop isn't comparable , everyone would buy both
  • Batman or Superman (?)
  • Batman.
  • To recap, Dark Knight batman, not Ben Affleck Batman.
  • TAS Batman... Kevin Conroy rox...
  • Dell, give me my Carousel display back and the world's most amazing keyboard... you know... like an XPS12, and we'll talk about upgrading mine!  Best laptop ever, and they ruined the design with a SP3 clone!  So disapointed!
  • Exactly! The previous 12 was near perfect! Something that could only really be appreciated in person, I'll admit, but with modern refinements, infinity screen tech, thinner, lighter, usb-c... Could have been fabulous.
  • It's funny that, quoting Marques, "cheap phones are getting better and good phones are getting cheaper" while laptops are lagging few years behind with one coming after another that's just more and more expensive! Let the startups do windows laptops
  • The XPS line is by definition Dell's high-end. They have Inspirion for mid-range and lower. The issue is how do you convince existing users to upgrade their old laptop? You don't do it with a low-cost solution, you need to wow them with something substantial That is the biggest hurdle in PCs these days. Just look at the Surface line.
  • While the design is decent, I think they shot themselves in the foot regarding a few features: Core M (only, yet high price tag), standard display, and the particular design for a 2 in 1. While core m is nice for low cost, it apparently doesn't save that much power. If they did include a battery in the base, it now has the same issue as the SB battery life. (which deviates from the flip version of the old XPS 12.) for a similar price, the Surface pro 4 packs a higher resolution display, more power, and a (hopefully) longer independent battery. The nice thing about the XPS 12 is the keyboard is included, though the pen isn't. Seems like a downgrade from my i7/128gb/1920x1080 (integrated battery) XPS 12 from 3 years ago.
  • Core M is the fastest passively cooled x86 CPU. If you ignore that, then surface family is simply too underpowered compared to 100W desktop CPUs.
