12.5 inch hybrid and convertible Dell XPS 12 XPSU12-8668CRBFB is a tablet and an ultrabook in one. It brings compact size, lightweight, durable build, very long battery life and high performance with the latest specs together to be able to do any kind of work or multiple things with ease.

Haswell Intel Core™ i7-4500U processor (4M Cache) at 3.0 GHz speed with turbo boost means speed, power and efficiency, 8 GB dual channel DDR3L RAM is great for being able to run a few apps and programs at the same time and a large 256 GB flash drive for quickly starting up the computer and saving all your files. You also have the SkyDrive that will automatically sync them to the web based cloud for being able to acces from whichever device wherever you are.

12.5 inch LED backlit full HD touch screen at 1920x1080 pixel high resolution and an Intel HD Graphics 4400 with a 170 degree viewing angle gives you the clearest and the best picture quality from different angles. It is also a 400-nit panel (twice as bright as standard panels) to let images look as clear as possible outdoors, even in the sun.

Sound quality is great through the built-in speakers and Waves Maxx Audio 5.0. Operating system is the Windows 8 and its customizable tiles and Dell XPS's highly intuitive touch screen work well together. You can easily upgrade it to the latest Windows 8.1 through the online Microsoft store.

Carbon-fiber body with aluminum edges means it is only 3.4lbs heavy and 0.65 inch thick. It has a unique flip-hinge design to convert the laptop into a tablet quickly and easily. This flip-hinge thing was tested by Dell and found to last at least 20,000 cycles. And the keyboard is permanently attached to the screen, backlit and has nicely spaced out keys for a good typing experience.

Thanks to the 4th generation processor, the lithium ion battery will give you roughly 7-8 hours in average use. And for connectivity, although there is no optical drive (and not necessary for most people), you get the Intel Dual Band AC 7260 802.11ac/a/b/g/n wireless, Bluetooth 4.0, 2 x USB 3.0 (1 with PowerShare function), 1.3MP Widescreen HD webcam with 720p support.

Conclusion: The Dell XPS 12 XPSU12-8668CRBFB Hybrid 2-in-1 Touchscreen Ultrabook is a great laptop and a tablet that comes with the latest technology components and features to use at home or at work, offering the best performance levels, power, efficiency and durability to make life easier for you. It has pretty much the best of everything and you won't regret your decision to purchase it.
