The Dell XPS 11 and 12 feature unique hybrid designs
This is Eric Franklin from CNET.
I'm in San Francisco.
And today, I'm taking a first look at Dell's new line of XPS laptops.
Dell claims the new XPS 11 is the thinnest 2-in-1 yet.
And at 2.5 pounds with a 0.6-inch thickness, the hybrid probably won't have trouble living up to that claim.
The tablet features a very Lenovo Yoga-like design.
It can be used
as a laptop, tablet, or put in a downward-facing dog position.
The display measures 11.6 inches and features a sharp 2560x1440 resolution touch screen.
There are dual USB 3.0 ports on the side, HDMI, and a full-sized SD card slot.
The device looks slick.
And I especially love how the matte gray keys contrast with the glossy black trim between them.
The XPS 12
issues Yoga poses in favor of a swivel-enabling hinge on either side of the display that allows the screen to flip back 180 degrees.
Then, the screen can be folded down to create a functional but rather girthy tablet.
It features a full tactile keyboard and a lower 1920x1200 resolution screen.
Look for more on both the XPS 11 and 12 soon.
