Dell reveals new XPS line up at IFA 2012

Dell has revealed three new XPS laptops at the IFA consumer electronics show including the flip-screen XPS Duo 12

 

The other two devices lined up by the American manufacturer include the Dell XPS 10, a Windows RT-based tablet and the all-in-one XPS 27 PC.

The XPS Duo 12 is the sequel to the relatively unexciting Dell Inspiron Duo and features a glossy Full HD touchscreen that revolves around a flip hinge system to swap between laptop and tablet modes. The hybrid device seems to be a staple of this year's IFA conference at the Dell XPS Duo 12 will be going up against the likes of the Sony Vaio Duo 11.

Interestingly, Dell are marketing this as an Ultrabook/tablet hybrid, which means we should see Ultrabook perks like SSD storage and fast boot-up making an appearance.

Dell has already confirmed the chassis is crafted from machined aliminium and carbon fibre - meaning it'll be light, tough and shiny. The display is manufactured with Corning Gorilla Glass, proving this could be one tough portable.

Meanwhile, the Dell XPS 27 is aimed at being a more perminant fixture in your home, thanks to a 27-inch Wide Quad HD touchscreen display and Infinity Premium speakers.

The all-in-one (AIO) market could see a boon in the wake of the Windows 8 release thanks to Microsoft's touch-focused UI.

The Dell XPS 10, like a host of other Windows 8 tabs will arrive with a dockable keyboard. The choice of Windows 8 RT on board should also see a relatively friendly price tag when this tablet launches in October.

Dell might not be the force it once was in the mobile computing space, but the XPS range has always produced some of the most desirable machines out there. That trend looks set to continue with these latest offerings - roll on October.
