At Computex 2013, Dell is showing off their new XPS 11 Ultrabook — it’s an impressive combination of many of the latest technologies. First is Haswell / 4th-gen Core, Intel’s latest processor, then there’s a high density 11-inch screen. On top of that, we’re looking at a convertible Ultrabook that flips just like the Lenovo Yoga. Impressive as it may be, we see some early red flags.
Some Ultrabooks focus on getting things done and although the end result is often a little on the dull side you can sense that you’re moving faster than with some other laptops and Ultrabooks. The Dellis one of those Ultrabooks and we’ve just had the pleasure of a few weeks testing it. Full review below.; Overview review video at the bottom of this post.

The DellTouch is here for a review (with an Nvidia GT630M GPU) and out of the blue, a Ultra Touch (with SSD) turned up today too so as is the law around these parts, I unboxed them for you. Actually I took 15 minutes to take a good look at both and, ahem, dropped the in the process!
Dell’shas been available for a while and has been well received but a couple of features were not as well liked as others. Next week an updated version of the Ultrabook will be available which addresses one of the major perceived shortcomings and adds a few other related improvements as well.
The Dell XPS 12 has caught the attention of many people since it leaked last May but that could be attributable to it having one of the coolest design features we’ve ever seen on an Ultrabook. The flip-screen is impressive. But is it useful? And how good is the XPS 12 as a laptop? Read-on for the full review.
Here’s a 16 minute video of my findings. If you’re interested in Ultrabook Convertibles, take a look at this video because it covers some ergonomic issues as well as a detailed look at the Dell XPS 12. [Specs, images, videos and more info in our database here.]
As always, I welcome discussion below. What do you think of Ultrabook Convertibles and what device impresses you the most?
The Dell finally upgrading the internals to the latest Ivy Bridge processors from Intel, Dell left the 13.3-inch display with the same measly 1366×768 resolution — not unusable by any means, but not what you expect on a premium device. Now Dell is finally giving the a full 1080p display.Ultrabook was well regarded as a first generation Ultrabook when it launched back in early 2012. Unfortunately Dell has done little to keep the competitive with second-generation Ultrabooks. Despite

Dell’s project Sputnik was formed to create a Linux-based developer-focused distro that would run on specific hardware. Over the last 7 months Dell have been working to build a final product with developers and component suppliers using the Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook. Developer edition models went out in July.
There have always been thoughts that a real product would hit Dell’s product range but that’s been confirmed now by project manager Barton George.

Qualcomm and Wilocity have just released details of the tri-band Wireless card that’s coming to Ultrabooks. The card is already in the Dell 6430u that was announced with WiGig a few weeks ago and Wilocity think that we’ll see many more Ultrabooks, along with peripherals that include wireless docking stations, in 2013.
Like HP with their leaked back in May but formal launch was announced by Dell this week., Toshiba with their Z930, Lenovo with their X1 Carbon, Dell are launching a business-focused Ultrabook. The Dell was
Clearly they were waiting for Windows 8 but note that this isn’t a touchscreen Ultrabook, despite the pretty touch-led Metro user interface being shown above.
Duo is an impressive looking Ultrabook. People here at IDF are flocking to it to check out the unique flip screen. The design works well but like all convertible designs that retain the keyboard, can’t give you a lightweight tablet. A 1.4KG tablet isn’t very mobile but it does offer something for those that primarily want a touchscreen Ultrabook with occasional tablet-style capabilities. This could be a good one as an ice-breaker for business meetings though!
