Essential connectivity at your fingertips
Leading connectivity:The Thunderbolt 3 is a multi-use port that allows you to charge your laptop, connect to any device (including support for up to two 4K displays) and enjoy data transfers up to 40GBps, 8 times that of USB 3.0.
Capture and visualize: Enjoy the clarity of an 8MP world-facing camera for taking high res photos, and a 5MP user-facing camera for a crystal clear web-chatting experience.
Solid-State Drive (SSD) : Solid-state drives are similar to the flash-based memory that you find in USB memory devices and have no moving parts, making them more secure and less prone to failure than standard hard drives. SSDs also pull your data from the drive faster and outperform 10,000 rpm Hard Disk Drives (HDDs) in read/write speeds, meaning you’ll also get faster load times on game maps and other information that’s stored on your device.
For people on the go, the potential benefits are significant.
- Improved performance - faster boot times, faster application launches and faster access to all your documents

Well... Where to start?
Let me preface this review by letting you know that I have now had the machine for a full four days. I received it Sunday morning, and have been using it since. Unfortunately, if not regrettably, I feel at this point that I would be remiss if I didn't send it back for a refund. Is it just junk?? The answer is a resounding "NO". On the contrary, it's a beautiful and functional device. Let me start by pointing out the redeeming qualities of the Dell XPS 12.
Screen: Stunning. Gorgeous. Sharp. 4k. Over the years, I have owned too many tablets, smartphones and computers to mention. The screen on the XPS 12 rivals all the best and actually surpasses the vast majority. Resolution (Again, 4k capable), Brightness, Sharpness and overall Clarity are second to none in my opinion. I guess you might say I was pleasantly shocked by the screen on this device. Out of the park, 5 stars, etc. etc.
Keyboard: Wow. I have used minimalist keyboards with various tablets that I've owned. I have also purchased laptops in the past based primarily on the quality and feel of the keyboard. Dell really went to great lengths to deliver this device with an outstanding keyboard. The simple fact that I can type for hours on this device and never feel taxed or fatigued is quite a feat. If not for the amazing screen on the device, I would say the keyboard is the real prize with this machine. Either way, it's 1 or 1A with the screen. Exceptional.
Performance: The machine with the SkyLake processor really hums. I have not had any issues with speed, whether multitasking or not. Bare in mind, I am not a gamer and so can't comment on that aspect of the performance. However, I do believe that for most people's applications, this machine is more than capable. Browsing the web, working in MS Office while listening to music, Netflix, etc., etc... It all feels very snappy and natural on this device. Windows 10 is actually a joy to use, at least for me, but I know that just like politics and religion, I probably shouldn't go there. In a nutshell, the XPS 12 should serve the vast majority with ease and admirable fluidity.
Form Factor: For some, this will be a knock on this device. While the machine is in "laptop mode" (screen docked into keyboard), there is only one angle that the screen can be in. It is NOT adjustable. This doesn't bother me because I feel like the viewing angle is optimal and natural. Again, YMMV... What really appeals to me is the ease of going from laptop to tablet and vice versa. It's a quick and deliberate process, and I like the fact that there isn't much room for error. Pull the tablet slightly forward and up to remove from the keyboard... Set the tablet in the slot on the keyboard and let it lean back to convert to traditional laptop. Very quick, painless and efficient.
By now, you might be thinking... "Ummmm, okay then, why the two stars buddy???"
Here comes the one major caveat (deal breaker) with an otherwise fantastic device...
Battery Life: Ouch. Abysmal. Unacceptable. Atrocious. Laughable. Sad. Disheartening. Ugh.
Is it really that bad? Yep. Now, I believe Dell advertises something like 9 hours of battery life for this thing. Well... to say that's optimistic would be like waking up one morning and handing in your resignation to pursue a career as a professional golfer. Yeah, don't quit your day job! Allow me to shed some light with a couple of examples:
-- Browsing the web and watching an episode of Daredevil (in 4k) on Netflix. Time on machine: 1 hour, 45 minutes (drained the battery completely).
-- Shopping on Amazon for Xmas gifts. (Tedious, but I avoid the crowds at least). Time on machine: 2 hours, 20 minutes (actually, this is the most life I've gotten out of the battery).
-- Writing in OneNote. Time on machine: 2 hours. Seriously??
-- Amazon Prime movie. The Gift (Excellent if not unsettling movie.) Time on machine: 2 hours. (Had to plug the machine in with about 10 minutes left in the movie). Ugh (again).
So, maybe battery life doesn't warrant such a hit against an otherwise very respectable machine. For me, it absolutely does. In 2015, if we can't even get through an average flight with our device doing absolutely average work/play on the device, it is inexcusable. This may be the fatal flaw that ultimately dooms the XPS 12. Certainly, I fully intend to return mine and run toward the nearest Surface Pro 4. Sorry, Dell... I even held off on purchasing any iteration of such a device until you released this (fatally flawed) little gem.
Although these highlights are great, for me, they can't overcome some of the weaknesses. For starters, pressing the power button to put the laptop in sleep mode appears not to be possible. You need to hold the button down for a bit to get it to register. Also to wake it from sleep, pressing the power button won't work. You need to long press on the Windows logo on the front bezel. Interesting? Due to the awesome 4K screen the battery life is subpar. On average I get between 2-4 hours. Not acceptable. Next is the docking platform. While it is ingenious that it just uses gravity (no latches, no magnets), the connection to enable the keyboard always takes several attempts to "connect" and work properly. Additionally, there is no adjustments for the screen. It is set at certain tilt you cannot adjust. When trying to type with this on the bed or sitting on a couch, I've had the tablet want to fall out a couple times. Next is the low voltage processor. While there is a beautiful 4K screen, this processor cannot handle 4K YouTube streams or 4K HEVC files. Basic tasks in Lightroom and Photoshop bring this machine to a halt. A shame for a machine with such a great form factor and great high resolution screen.
Overall while there were elements of this tablet that I liked, the cons outweighed this for me making this very unusable experience. Additionally, I had Thunderbolt 3 connection issues which I think is just down to a firmware or driver issue with latest updates not really fixing it, but I think that can be resolved later. Anyways, I'd have to rate it 3/5. Its okay, had potential for greatness and a Surface replacement, but too many issues prevented that for me.
