Each product in the XPS portfolio is tailored for very specific customer needs, and the new products unveiled today are designed to take advantage of emerging software and technology, with the same XPS brand attributes that customers expect from Dell.
“The XPS 12 represents the culmination of a deep understanding of the ‘Bring Your Own Device’ movement and insights gained from both our consumer and business customers,” said Christopher Papa, Country Manager of Dell. “The new set of XPS 12 represents a milestone in our design and approach to user experience. Our vision for our XPS line of computers is not just about the device or technology; it’s about achieving the perfect balance of amazing design, end user productivity and IT enablement.”
Dell tapped its heritage of offering unique and innovative solutions to create the XPS 12. The product features a novel and elegant flip hinge touch screen display designed to take advantage of the W8 operating system advances for touch interaction. The result is two products in one, providing the full functionality of an ultraportable laptop with keyboard plus the convenience of a tablet.
The innovative flip hinge design can easily transition from laptop to tablet to laptop and features a Full HD screen that provides 97 percent more pixels than a standard HD display. The result is an exceptionally crisp reading and photo and video viewing experience. The XPS 12 features thoughtful design, attractive aesthetics, and is crafted from premium materials such as machined aluminum and carbon fiber, as well as Corning Gorilla Glass for durability.
“With Windows 8 remained, we are bringing a no-compromise, immersive and personalized experience to our customers,” said Mon De los Reyes of Microsoft Philippines. “The support from our partners is critical for the success of Windows 8. Dell is an important partner to Microsoft and we will continue to work together to transform lives through the power of computing technology.”
“Our life experiences are defined by our senses -- by what we see, hear and touch. These human senses are also at the foundation of Intel's vision for the Ultrabook to deliver a no-compromise, must-have computing experience and we congratulate Dell on the launch of its new touch enabled product range,” said Wowie Wong, Business Development Manager of Intel Philippines. “Dell has always been at the forefront of innovation in technology and we are glad to be a partner to Dell in the continuing evolution of the computing experience.”
