Not too slippery, and it isn't glossy black and prone to attracting fingerprints.
The touch screen attracts less fingerprints than I'd expect as well.
Of course we were eager to get a system in for a full review, but with pent-up demand for the machine and a couple of small production delays, the product that was originally announced way back in October just before Dell World 2015, took this long to land on our test bench for a proper prodding.
The configuration we’re looking at here is one of Dell’s best setups with a 4K IPS display, a 6th gen Intel Core i7-6700HQ Skylake quad-core processor at 2.6GHz with turbo boost to 3.5GHz, 16GB of DDR4 RAM at 2133MHz, NVIDIA’s Ge Force GTX 960M 2 GB mobile graphics engine and a 512GB NVMe PCI Express Solid State Drive.
What we'll be looking at in-depth and with vigor on the pages that follow is probably Dell's best foot forward with their new premium 15-inch machine.
Whether you're a gamer, a designer, a student or parent, a writer, a dealmaker, or a Jack or Jill of all trades – at the Microsoft Store you'll find the perfect PCs for all that you do.
The touch screen responds very well, and the display quality (1080p) in a 12.5" environment is surprisingly readable, and looks gorgeous. I did not expected the Dell XPS 12 screen to make my existing desktop monitor look so apallingly terrible when placed side by side. This doesn't always happen, but when it does it is irritating.
