Really good review thanks, but curious as you why you only give 8/10 when the negatives are so few and your review is extremely positive?
I've found the vaio duo to be a better product, more versatile though not without it's foibles, the keyboard is a bit fussy about whether it will register your press or not...Still, I think it's a lot more versatile than this thing.
8/10 - This beggars belief. Is that 8/10 for a tablet? As far as I can see the weight and form factor are awful compared to an Amazon, Samsung or Apple tablet. Or is that 8/10 for a laptop? Because the specs are equally awful compared to a comparatively priced Dell, Thinkpad or Macbook laptop. Or is that 8/10 for a new product segment? If so could you please describe this new product segment, because I can't for the life of me see any such gap in the market.
This site needs to start calling a spade a spade - and this is a turkey.
For me, and the way I use computer-ish things - or the way I'd want to use a combo - the only thing it's missing is a pressure-sensitive stylus. But does that mean, trivially that Dell just didn't bother to include one, and I could get one elsewhere and maybe a driver, and it would work? Or does it mean, frustratingly, that the XPS-12 could NOT be made to support a third-party stylus, regardless of installed drivers or other software?
Dell = Rubbish service! my order never arrived! XPS 12 was available on the system when I ordered, but apparently it wasn't, according to Dell. Order acknowledged but no further email or call, I had to chase it myself. Order from a company that values customers.
