The Dell XPS XPSD12-5335CRBFB is a Windows 8-based thin and light 12.5-inch touchscreen ultrabook laptop, but not a usual one. Instead of a simple touch-enabled display, the XPSD12-5335CRBFB, as well as the whole XPS 12 series, has one that rotates within its frame and with this feature it is a unique convertible laptop on the market today. In addition, the screen is 1080p and is covered edge-to-edge with Corning Gorilla-branded scratch resistant glass.

This laptop / tablet hybrid meets ultrabook standards, since it has a thinness of 0.8 inches, an ultra-low voltage processor, and a solid state drive. It comes with the Intel Core i5-3317U, which is a higher-mid-range solution in the ultrabook CPU category.

The processor delivers graphics via the integrated Intel HD 4000 and the notebook incorporates a 128GB SSD and 4GB of DDR3 memory. Due to its ultraportable form factor and thinness, there’s a lot to be desired in the ports department. Dell’s XPSD12-5335CRBFB has only two USBs and a Mini Display Port, so it lacks commonly adopted HDMI, VGA, and media card reader. It doesn’t even have an Ethernet jack.

The convertible currently costs about $1,200.
