Dell XPS 11 Review


Dell's sleek, carbon fiber-clad XPS 11 is a hybrid convertible laptop that attempts to marry the best of a powerful Ultrabook and a performance tablet in a slim package. Rather than start with a tablet and then add a keyboard dock like in Asus'...

Dell XPS 11 User Review


Take another look at what makes the Dell XPS 11 so appealing and find out if that notorious keyboard is better than we thought.

Small, thin, and light ; Excellent screen with a high resolution ; Touch enabled display works well ; Excellent specifications for an 11 ; Good Battery Life ; Runs very cool

Only two USB ports ; Sound rocker not very useful ; Keyboard takes getting used to

At the end of the day, the Dell XPS 11 left me with a positive experience, I wanted to continue using the laptop and was left feeling confident that the XPS 11 had enough computing power to meet my needs.

Dell XPS 11 Review: Flexible or Flailing?


A sleek laptop/tablet 2-in-1, the Dell XPS 11 provides solid connectivity and a generally good Windows experience in all modes, but suffers from a terrible keyboard and a bit too high a price.

Hinge design ; Good battery life ; Portable ; Sharp screen

Awful keyboard ; Shaky in tent and stand modes ; Runs hot ; Pricey

Dell XPS 11 ( Fall 2013)


The new Dell XPS 11 hybrid shows that Dell is still capable of swinging for the fences, and putting out a laptop that looks and feels like a true premium product. The XPS 11 is an 11-inch superslim laptop, but it's also a hybrid that converts to tablet...

The Dell XPS 11 is a slim, light hybrid that looks and feels great, and offers decent performance and battery life.

The touch-style keyboard, lacking actual keys, is an experiment that just doesn't pan out.

Attempting to out-Yoga the Yoga, Dell's flip-screen XPS 11 has a great design, but isn't as practical as other hybrids for actually getting work done thanks to a frustrating keyboard.

Dell XPS 11 Review


The Dell XPS 11 is an attractive, flexible hybrid with solid performance, but the uncomfortable flat keyboard is a deal breaker.

Sleek, versatile design; Comfortable soft-touch deck; Sharp QHD screen; Strong battery life; Solid performance

Flat keyboard is uncomfortable; Heavy as a tablet; Awkward power button placement

The Dell XPS 11 is an attractive, flexible hybrid with solid performance, but the uncomfortable flat keyboard is a deal breaker.

Review: Dell XPS 11 Ultrabook A Mixed Bag


Dell's convertible Ultrabook serves all purposes well, but suffers from mediocre performance and battery life unbecoming of Haswell.

Scratch-prone finish ; Aggravating keyboard ; Integrated graphics chug

Disappointing touch keyboard and average screen ruin what could be a good laptop

A sensible selection of ports isn’t enough to win us over, though, as the Dell XPS 11 remains incredibly frustrating to use as a laptop and its mediocre screen hinders its use as a tablet. We do like the 360-degree hinge design, but Dell’s execution of...

Dell XPS 11


The keyboard will define this hybrid laptop for most users. Love it and the XPS 11 is a very attractive device. Loathe it and you won't want to go near it.

It doesn’t get much more mobile than this, which is even more impressive when you consider the 2560 x 1440 screen

The touch keyboard needs to be improved, as it often fails to register key presses

The XPS 11 is a love it or loathe it kind of device, based solely on the touch keyboard. We eventually got used to typing on it, but it was never as easy to use as a standard keyboard, or even the Surface keyboard for that matter. If your fingers can...

Labs Brief: Dell XPS 11


Dell releases a powerful and versatile machine, but one that's very pricey.

Our review machine was high-spec, with a 1.9GHz i5 and a 128GB SSD. While nicely powerful, at the price it’s difficult to justify since it’s a lot to pay for a machine that’s mostly for entertainment. Grab the cheaper one at $1498 and it could be a...
