With Windows 8 Pro - designed for a smooth, versatile PC experience.
XPS 12 is the only high-performance Ultrabook to feature the elegant flip-hinge design. Whether you're browsing your favorite blogs in tablet mode, or answering emails and preparing presentations in laptop mode, XPS 12 is built around your life. The unique flip-hinge design couples an elegant transition with premium materials and craftsmanship. The hinge is tested to 20,000 cycles. That is equivalent to doing 10 flips per day, 7 days a week for 5.5 years.
Constructed with precision cut aluminum and carbon fiber, the XPS 12 maximizes strength and minimizes weight with premium materials. The edge-to-edge Corning Gorilla Glass NBT display resists damage from scratches, drops and bumps. The carbon fiber body is as strong as aluminum, but lighter and cooler to the touch.
Your day just got brighter
XPS 12 includes a 12.5" Full HD (1080p) screen that provides up to 2X more pixels than standard HD displays so you'll see finer details, lines and edges. A 170-degree viewing angle means your display looks clear and crisp from almost any seat.
And, the 400-nit display makes it easy to see your screen in outdoor settings, delivering exceptionally clear and bright viewing for reading as well as photo and video viewing. XPS 12 lets you see images the way they were meant to be seen.
Optimized for Windows 8
The XPS 12 operates with the new Windows 8 to deliver the latest apps to create and play in an enhanced touch-based experience - all without sacrificing PC functionality. With Windows 8 you can keep your files in SkyDrive, where they'll be automatically synced to the cloud for access from any internet-connected device.
Always up to date
No more waiting. Intel Smart Connect Technology automatically updates your email, contacts, social networks and favorite apps, even when your XPS 12 is in sleep mode.
Share photos, connect apps or share a website - all wirelessly. The XPS 12, built with NFC (near field communication), makes it possible. Tap and connect to pair with other NFC enabled device (like headphones and speakers) or tap another Windows 8 NFC enabled device to share photos and more.
Power your passion in seconds
Get started quickly with whatever your day brings. Boot in as little as 7 seconds and resume in less than 2 seconds from sleep mode with an all flash solid-state drive and Intel Rapid Start Technology. Make it easy to run multiple applications and experience movies, videos, games and other media seamlessly, with new 4th Generation Intel Core processors and new Intel HD4400 graphics. The new XPS 12 is up to 63% faster and provides 68% more graphics performance than the previous generation model.
