Dell XPS12 Challenges Surface 4

Dell’s latest take on a 2-in-1 laptop / tablet is very much like Microsoft’s Surface Pro 4 but with one key difference: The included keyboard is a solid base, not a thin cover.

Like the base model $899 Surface Pro 4, Dell’s XPS 12 uses an Intel Skylake Core M processor; the Core m5-6Y54 Dell chose is clocked at 1.1 GHz and ramps up to 2.7 GHz as needed. Microsoft is also offering Core i5 / i7 options in the Surface Pro 4. A pair of USB Type-C ports are used for charging, data transfer and external monitors. The tablet portion measures 8 millimeters thick and weights 1.75 pounds, according to Dell’s official XPS 12 product page.

The base model starts at $999 and includes the keyboard base along with 8 GB of memory and 128 GB of storage. Also like Microsoft’s product, the XPS 12 has an 8 megapixel rear camera and 5 megapixel front image sensor. Dell will offer an optional pen.

The XPS 12 display is 12.5-inches diagonally, just a tick larger than the Surface Pro’s 12.3-inch screen.

Dell’s base model, however, offers 1920 x 1080 resolution, which is below that of Microsoft’s 2736×1824 choice. You can bump up to a 4K resolution with the XPS 12, however, bringing the price up to $1,299. That configuration also doubles your storage space but retains the Core m5 chip.
