    twitter: @lisagade) We'd be remiss if we didn't revisit the Dell XPS 12 in its Haswell revision. Why? The XPS 12 was one of our early top picks among Windows 8 convertibles with a full HP IPS display, clever design that avoided the Lenovo Yoga's keyb...

    We won't go too deep on design and ergonomics because that hasn't changed much from our original XPS 12 review. The easel hinge has gotten a firmer locking mechanism, but the carbon fiber, aluminum and magnesium machine hasn't changed outwardly. Inside, t...

    Dell has been manufacturing a number of ultrabooks and tablets over the past couple of years, with its hybrid tablet notebook announced, the XPS 12, this time last year. Several months passed since the Dell XPS 12 was first announced, but the notebook...

    Good: Same great construction and 1080p touchscreen as last year, New $999 starting price, Good keyboard and OK touchpad, Sturdier screen flipping mechanism that doesn't get in the way of laptop functionality, Decent battery life, 802.11ac, Relatively light on...

    Bad: A chunky tablet at best, A little thicker and heavier than some dedicated laptops, like the XPS 13, No SD card slot, Fan spins up quickly and often

    That first wave of Windows 8 convertible laptops wasn't always great. Awkward “slider” designs that compromised the keyboard and trackpad were all too common, and not many of them could manage much more than five or six hours on a single charge. That's no...

    Good: Excellent 1080p touchscreen display, Solid keyboard and audio quality, Good battery life

    Bad: Touchpad is still finnicky, Few ports, Cumbersome as a tablet

    Now, with new battery-sipping Intel processors inside, those Windows machines are finally coming into their own. That same Acer Aspire S7 now clocks in at seven hours, and it's not the only sharp tool in Microsoft's shed. The Dell XPS 12, its screen-flipp...

    Good: Beautiful design, Solid and thoughtful construction, Excellent battery life, Very fast system performance, Capable integrated GPU, Bright and responsive multitouch display, Great keyboard, Spacious touchpad

    Bad: Uncomfortable temperatures when stressed, Could use a third USB port

    Our $1,200 (MSRP) review unit features an Intel Core i5-4200U 1.6 GHz Haswell CPU with Intel HD Graphics 4400, 4 GB DDR3 RAM , and a 128 GB solid-state drive . While we'll briefly recap the basics of the XPS 12's design, we'll refer you to our review of l...

    Good: The Dell XPS 12 is a slim rotating-screen hybrid with a high-res display and improved battery life.

    Bad: The accelerometer can get confused when flipping the screen around and the fan gets very loud. It also lacks an SD card slot and HDMI output.

    To give Dell credit, its rotating-screen laptop/tablet hybrid keeps getting a bit better with each generation. The basic design, a screen with a center horizontal hinge that can flip 180 degrees and fold down to form a tablet, first came to us in the f...

    The XPS 12 isn’t perfect, but it’s certainly one of the more successful attempts to create a hybrid mobile device that can function as both a laptop and a tablet. Dell describes the XPS 12 as a ‘convertible ultrabook’. Certainly, it ticks all the righ...

    Dell's entry into the Windows 8 convertible-notebook market bridges the gap between a tablet and a notebook through some wonderfully clever engineering. Instead of using the keyboard as a dock for the display, the display flips around inside a frame t...

    Good: Outstanding build quality, Nocompromises convertible design, Great keyboard, Beautiful 1080p display, Long battery life, Fast solidstate drive

    Bad: Weight makes tablet use awkward, Finicky touchpad, Lackluster processor for the price

    There's a ton of new convertible tablet PCs now on the market, or soon to be – yet most of them require compromise. Lenovo's Yoga is neat, but the keyboard can get in the way of tablet use. Dockables, like the Asus Vivo Tab RT , either rely on a small dis...

    Among all the Windows 8 convertibles coming out, the Dell XPS is unique. Because it's insane. It's a full-on, regular laptop, with a trapeze artist screen that flips on an axis to convert into a slate. Is that something you'd actually want?A 12.5-inch tou...
