Dell finally puts Yoga-like XPS 11 notebook-tablet hybrid on sale

Way back in June, Dell announced its plans to release the XPS 11, an 11.6 inch notebook-tablet hybrid with a design similar to that of the Yoga PCs sold by rival Lenovo. Today, Dell announced that the XPS 11 is finally available to purchase online, starting at $999.99.

The Windows 8.1 product has a 2560x1440 IPS display and weighs just 2.5 pounds. The display hinge rotates nearly 360 degrees so that the notebook can switch to become a full tablet. Inside it has Intel's fourth generation Core processors (Haswell) and the company's HD Graphics 4200 chip handling the hardware duties. The $999.99 starting price is for a model with an Intel Core i3 chip, 4GB of RAM and an 80GB SSD. Dell also offers options that have faster processors and larger storage drives for more money, but the 4GB of RAM is fixed for all of the versions.

Dell is also selling a revamped version of its XPS 13 Ultrabook that weighs less than three pounds and comes with a 13.3 inch display with an option for a touchscreen version. Like the XPS 11, the XPS 13 comes with Intel Haswell processors and prices start at $999.99.

i cant decide between this and the SP2. Surface has better specs at some points but the price is much higher. Pretty sure that 4GB RAM difference makes a difference but how much of a difference? Does the XPS 11 has palm rejection? worse battery life? 4400 IHG vs 4200 IHG? anyone?

This is the FIRST Windows tablet or hybrid available in the US with a retina display!!!! The Dell is 253 ppi vs. 264 on the iPads and 208 in Surface.

I'm after a slate myself, but good going Dell!!

I currently own the top of the line 1st gen XPS12 and love it - except for my 8GB RAM limitation (I do ESXi/vSphere and Hyper-V training on it for our staff). The 4GB limit here is a complete deal breaker here - I don't understand what they are thinking here at all.

I'm looking forward to in-hand reviews of the Venue 11 Pro. It seems to be the best surface 2 pro clone so far and has a ton of accessories.
