Review from various users has revealed numerous pros as well as some cons of the device. In one word this computer can be said fantastic owing to its excellent processor speed, clear display quality and massive SSD. Some negative aspects are also there and the one that comes first is the heavy weight which makes it difficult to use despite its capability to camouflage in different attires. So this heavy weight limits its utility. Moreover touch sensing is not too good which is a drawback where Windows 8 is concerned. So the heavy weight will make you use the device as laptop for most of the time.

Price of Dell XPS 12 Convertible Ultrabook is around £1,299 /AU$1,499/US$1,199 which is closer to the price of MacBook Pro 13-inch with Retina display which is nearly around £1,499/AU$1,899/US$1,699.Hence making a choice between Dell XPS 12 and a Apple product is not that difficult I guess.
