The Dell XPS 12 is a great alternative for the Microsoft Surface Pro 4, especially for people who are not willing to wait a few months more. It is also set to rival all the players in the 2-in-1 hybrid category.

Dell's latest creation, the Dell XPS 12, is currently available on its official website and has a starting price of $999 for the base model, which comes with a 12.5-inch 1080p resolution display and a 128GB flash storage. Customers can also opt for a higher Dell XPS 12 model that comes with a 4K resolution display and a 256GB flash storage, priced at USD $1,299.

Dell XPS 12 variants will come with a 1.1GHz Intel Core M5-6Y54 "Skylake" dual core processor that can be boosted up to 2.7GHz with an 8GB of RAM. It also comes with an integrated Intel HD 515 graphics. Dell XPS 12 is also offering a stylus for its pressure sensitive screen for an additional USD $35, sold separately, Digital Trends reported.

The operating system for the Dell XPS 12 will be Windows 10. It will be equipped with two Thunderbolt 3 ports that can also support a USB 3.1 for battery charging, an SD card reader, a 3.5 audio jack and monitor output. The Dell XPS 12 screen can be attached to its full keyboard via a set of magnets, a make which is entirely different from its predecessor, as the 2013 version has a flipping screen.

Another Dell XPS 12 treat is its full backlit chiclet keyboard that has a glass touchpad that offers precise mouse movements. One advantage of the Surface Pro 4 is having its own kickstand, which gives it multiple viewing and working positions, but Dell can offer only a single viewing position, ZDNet reported.

Dell XPS 12, the 2-in-1 hybrid computer/tablet, is relatively cheap with its remarkable specifications. Share your thoughts on Dell's hybrid in the comments section below.
