Dell’s refreshed XPS 12, on the other hand, isn’t a Surface clone. Instead, it’s a pretty standard (but very nice) take on a now-traditional 2-in-1 with a detachable screen. It offers a 4K display option, a Skylake processor, various-sized SSD options, and 8GB of RAM, along with a pair of USB-C ports that pack full Thunderbolt 3.0 support—meaning oh-so-sweet 10Gbps transfer rates.
Dell also refreshed the XPS 13, one of our favorite laptops of early 2015, with Skylake processors and support for speedy M.2 SSDs up to 1TB in size. But it’s getting a big brother, too: The new Dell XPS 15 brings the XPS line’s sleek design, Skylake chips, 4K display options, and Thunderbolt 3.0 support to a larger screen size, though Dell says its super-slim InfinityEdge bezel makes the XPS 15 the “smallest 15-inch on the planet.”
