Dell is preparing a refresh of its popular XPS 12 laptop-tablet convertible, something that WinFuture is saying could be an ASUS Transformer-like device powered by Intel's new Skylake processors.




The current XPS 12 features a swiveling 12.5-inch display, but the new slate could separate the display and keyboard into a dockable, Transformer-like hybrid. If Dell did this, it would make the XPS 12 a much more versatile device, and could compete directly against the likes of the ASUS Transformer, and Microsoft's Surface line - including the upcoming Surface Pro 4.


We can expect a 12.5-inch 4K display, but there will be a cheaper 1080p model, too. Inside, there should be an Intel Skylake-powered Core M processor, up to 8GB of RAM, a 30 watt-hour battery, and optional LTE. The new XPS 12 will feature two Thunderbolt 3-powered USB Type-C connectors, USB 3.1 connectivity, and stylus support. There should be two keyboard docks, with the thicker one featuring more connectivity in the form of HDMI, and USB ports.
