XPS 12, a high-performance Ultrabook™, features an elegant flip-hinge design. Whether you’re browsing your favorite blogs in tablet mode, or answering emails and preparing presentations in laptop mode, XPS 12 is built around your life. The unique flip-hinge design couples an elegant transition with premium materials and craftsmanship. The hinge is tested to 20,000 cycles.
