Dell XPS 12 Convertible Specifications and information

Dell XPS 12 Convertible alternatives
From a design perspective the XPS Duo 12 is certainly a stylish alternative to a slider or dockable tablet but we are concerned about the weight of the device in tablet mode. Pricing is also quite high but that may not deter those looking for a stylish option. 47Wh battery is not the largest in this weight category.
No VGA or HDMI. DisplayPort supports V1.1
