Convertible notebooks have been gaining in popularity lately as computer manufacturers start to think outside of the box of what their laptop can do. We’ve seen company’s like Lenovo offer a number of convertible laptops, and Dell seems to have taken notice as they are announcing a new convertible notebook, the XPS 11.
The main selling point for the Dell XPS 11 is the fact that it can be used as both a notebook and a tablet, depending on how you maneuver it. You’ll be able to use the XPS 11 in its standard notebook mode, to then push its lid back 360 degrees so its display is resting on the keyboard to be used in its tablet mode.
The one major difference between the XPS 11 and Lenovo’s Yoga, which is a similar convertible notebook, is Dell is offering a 2560 x 1440 resolution display with its 11.6-inch screen, where the Yoga only comes with a 1366 x 768 resolution display. The XPS will also ship with an Intel Core i5 Haswell processor as well as an active digitizer, which can be used as a digital pen.
