DSC03988

Dell is adding a new 11-inch hybrid laptop to its stable of high-end XPS offerings. The new XPS 11, which will be available on Oct. 13 for $1,299, packs an Intel 4th Generation Core Series  processor and an  impressive 11-inch , 2,560 x 1,440 resolution Quad HD display. That’s a higher resolution than Apple’s 11-inch Macbook Air.

We originally saw a prototype of the Dell XPS 11 back at Computex 2013 in June and were intrigued with its sharp display, slim chassis and unique, flat keyboard design. Now Dell has made this hybrid official.

Dell has also made sure to keep the XPS 11 extremely thin at just 11~15 millimeters. The XPS 11 sports a hinge that allows you to flip the display 360 degrees to use the hybrid in laptop mode. The keyboard is similar to those found on Microsoft’s Surface keyboard cover with key that don’t travel, but, unlike the Surface, these will provide haptic feedback. 

When not used in laptop or tablet mode, the XPS 11 can be used in a stand mode, similar to Lenovo’s IdeaPad Yoga. However, Lenovo’s offering features a full-size keyboard. Stay tuned for our full review and impressions.
