Reviews for the Dell XPS 12 9250-9303

Dell XPS 12 Two-in-One Laptop Review
Source: Slashgear English
By far, though, the most impressive part was the quality of the display and the stylus. To say that drawing and writing on the XPS 12 was a pleasure is a complete understatement. The tablet provided one of the best digital drawing experiences I've ever had with a consumer tablet; this could absolutely be a digital artist's main drawing tablet, and I can't imagine they'd find a single thing to complain about. If you frequently take handwritten notes, as well, you'll love the XPS 12.

40% Review: Dell's XPS 12 is all over the shop
Source: PC Authority English
The killer blow for the XPS 12, though, is the sheer quality of the competition. If you have anywhere between $1,300 and $2,000 to spend then there are many other devices more worthy of your cash. Given that you can pick up the Core m3-powered Surface Pro 4 with the Type Cover for $1,549, I fear the XPS 12 is dead in the water. Sorry, Dell, but this time it’s back to the drawing board.

12.5":

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

1.25 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
