Give productivity a big boost of speed with 4th Generation Intel Core i5 processing, Windows 8.1 and an innovative flip-hinge design. XPS 12, a high-performance Ultrabook, features an elegant flip-hinge design. Whether you're browsing your favorite blogs in tablet mode, or answering emails and preparing presentations in laptop mode, XPS 12 is built around your life. The unique flip-hinge design couples an elegant transition with premium materials and craftsmanship. The hinge is tested to 20,000 cycles. That is equivalent to doing 10 flips per day, 7 days a week for 5.5 years. Constructed with precision cut aluminum and carbon fiber, the XPS 12 maximizes strength and minimizes weight with premium materials. The edge-to-edge Corning Gorilla Glass NBT display resists damage from scratches, drops and bumps. The carbon fiber body is as strong as aluminum, but lighter and cooler to the touch. XPS 12 includes a 12.5 inch Full HD (1080p) screen that provides up to 2X more pixels than standard HD displays so you'll see finer details, lines and edges. A 170-degree viewing angle means your display looks clear and crisp from almost any seat. And, the 400-nit display makes it easy to see your screen in outdoor settings, delivering exceptionally clear and bright viewing for reading as well as photo and video viewing. XPS 12 lets you see images the way they were meant to be seen.
The XPS 12 operates with the Windows 8 to deliver the latest apps to create and play in an enhanced touch-based experience - all without sacrificing PC functionality. With Windows 8 you can keep your files in SkyDrive, where they'll be automatically synced to the cloud for access from any internet-connected device.
