1920 X 1080 Pixels Display Resolution

The DELL XPS 12 has a maximum display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. That's 98% more display resolution than the most frequently found display resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels.

Has a Full-Size Keyboard

The DELL XPS 12 has a full-size keyboard, unlike most of the other laptops of a comparable type and age to the XPS 12 which do not have a full-size keyboard.

Alternative laptops with a full-size keyboard currently available that you might want to consider include the DELL XPS 12 (£511.37) which is cheaper.

We compared all the other notebook PCs which also have a full-size keyboard to this laptop and we think the DELL XPS 12, or the Lenovo Flex (£529.90) is also worth considering.

We compared all the other notebook PCs that have an SSD storage media to this laptop and we think the Yoga 2 Pro (£419.00), and the Yoga 2 Pro (£419.00) both from Lenovo which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If the storage medium of this notebook PC is not good enough for you then you might also want to look at the Fujitsu Stylistic Q702 (£543.00) (SSD), or the Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro (£599.00) (SSD).
