Dell's XPS ultrabook laptop has been getting a bit old as it was still based on the older Sandy Bridge processors while many of its competitors moved to the new Ivy Bridge. Apparently, the company was just waiting for Windows 8 to come out so they could introduce a new convertible laptop that could switch between a standard laptop and a tablet mode. They did this by merging the basic designs of the XPS 13 with an older netbook of all things. Does the new convertible ultrabook provide a compelling reason to upgrade to a new Windows 8 laptop? Find out in my review of the Dell XPS 12 ultrabook.
