With curiosity Following news of the sector, hybrid devices – tablet equipped with a keyboard and operate based on the Windows 10. One of these is the Dell XPS 12 (9250), which just started to test.
If you're wondering what to buy instead of the iPad Pro 9.7 "and you know, what are the four main reasons to choose a hybrid instead of a tablet, the new Dell XPS 12 (9250), can you really be interested in. I spent a few days working on this item and impressions , so far, has been very positive.
Netbook in 2016. This thing costly
In the category of hybrid devices, because of the price, the Dell XPS 12 (9250) takes a very high place. It is definitely one of the most expensive devices of this type have been tested, though, as you know, not the most expensive. The variant, which I received for testing is priced at 6999 zł, and the price we get a model with SSD M.2 with a capacity of 256 GB, 8 GB of RAM, processor m5-6Y57 (sixth generation) and a screen of 12.5 "with a resolution of 4K . Of course, the natural counterpart XPS and will MacBook with Retina – here in 7799 zł receive the configuration from the SSD with a capacity. 512 GB, m5-6Y45 processor and 8 GB of RAM and a screen Retina. And in about 6999 zł we receive the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 i5-6300U processor, 256-gigabyte SSD, 8GB of RAM, screen resolution of 2736 x 1824 Surface Pen stylus, and in addition to the keyboard. So is Dell has nothing to fear?
Slim, brilliant screen
Dell XPS 12 (9250) draws attention to two features – is extremely slim device because it measures itself only 8 mm thick, but has at the same 12.5-inch screen with a resolution of 4K. The image that displays is simply oversaturated colors. You can not take your eyes off of him, and I am not surprised that the equipment costs so much. When you begin to use the XPS-12 and, it is difficult to switch to your previous monitor or laptop.slim silhouette, even when combined with the keyboard, make this equipment very mobile. Unlike my MacBook Air, the Dell XPS 12 has a very thin bezel running around the screen. As a result, one gets the impression that the matrix is slightly greater than the reality and easier to focus your eyes on the displayed image. On this screen, great present also all sorts of multimedia, so really hard to break away from him. svelte tablet, however, involves the fact that the manufacturer had to turn to radical measures. Unlike hybrids Lenovo IdeaPad MIIX 700 or Microsoft's Surface Pro 4, all ports replaced with two Thunderbolt connectors 3. Through them (and the appropriate adapter, of course) is connected computer peripherals, external display and charge the XPS-a. It bothers me a little, because I would have preferred a standard USB 3.0 port and HDMI output, but something for something.
Good keyboard and the pleasant job
Along with the tablet we get a keyboard with illuminated keys and a large trackpad, respectively. Very comfortable to write on (the text is created just for the XPS-12 e) – key travel is very pleasant. Soft, but clearly marked. There was no room for a dedicated numeric keypad, but there is a whole row of function keys and can lock the Fn key.XPS-12 and drives the processor family Intel Core M and while providing a sufficiently high computing power – the culture of the system to me is impeccable. I am using multiple browser windows, and I have several applications open in the background. 8 GB of RAM really handy here. It never happened to tablet scored any slowdown in work, but I could not work on Chromie – constantly crashes.
I am in the phase of testing of synthetic and will soon publish a full review of the tablet.
