Dell XPS Duo 12 Convertible Ultrabook
Dell's XPS Duo 12 Ultrabook definitely stood out as being the most unique hybrid device on the IDF show floor. Rather than sliding the top screen down over the keyboard like most convertible Ultrabooks, users of the Dell XPS Duo 12 rotate its screen -- which sits within a detachable bezel frame -- to transition into tablet mode.
Fully touch-enabled and optimized for Windows 8, the XPS Duo 12 has 97 percent more pixels than standard HD displays, creating a super-crisp user experience. It wasn't the lightest or thinnest Ultrabook on the IDF block but its unique form factor and bright display certainly grabbed attendees' attention.
Dell hasn't specified a price point yet, but said the XPS Duo 12 will launch when Windows 8 does at the end of October.
