Dell makes improvements on XPS 12 and XPS 27 Windows 8 PCs

Dell announced on Monday its plans to release the XPS 11, an all new Windows 8 notebook-tablet hybrid, later this year. However, before that happens the company will launch new versions of two of its first Windows 8 PCs.

Microsoft's Windows Experience blog has the details on the changes being made to the two Dell PCs. One of them is the XPS 12 notebook-tablet hybrid. The device with its unique display hinge will soon be getting Intel's fourth generation Core processors, also known as Haswell, that will increase the 12-inch convertible's performance by 63 percent.

The battery life on the XPS 12 has been increased by over two hours, which Microsoft claims will give it up to 8 hours and 43 minutes of battery life. Microsoft adds, "It also gets location aware capabilities, and Near Field Communications (NFC) for tap-to-share and tap-to-pair capabilities.

The XPS 27 all-in-one touchscreen PC, also launched in late 2012, is getting a hardware boost to Intel's Haswell chips, according to Microsoft. It will also soon come with " ... a Thunderbolt port, an Adobe RGB Quad HD display, and discrete graphics and SSD options. It also now comes with enterprise features such as TPM."
