Slim, thin, and compact

The Dell XPS 11 -- purportedly the thinnest and lightest 2-in-1 ultrabook hybrid -- features a 360-degree convertible design that allows it to easily transform from laptop to tablet.

Backlit keyboard

The XPS 11's keyboard features backlight functionality, which isn't very common for 2-in-1 tablet/laptop hybrids.

A slim 11mm to 15mm profile

Even if it's not the thinnest ultrabook, the Dell XPS 11 is pretty darn slim with a profile that manages to squeeze in a full HDMI port.

USB port and SD card slot

Even though the XPS 11 is small, it passes on the micro-size features for full-size USB and HDMI ports, as well as an SD card expansion slot.
