a Rafflecopter giveaway


  1. Well, I like minimalism and I like streamlining my life. If I can have ONE thing that does two things — like this — which would be perfect for WORK and play, I would be one happy geek.

    I do a lot of work in Office, but I also love watching movies. The iPad is alright, but I want something with a keyboard. I want the power of a PC. I want a tablet when I want it. The Dell XPS 12 sounds ideal.

  2. I need a laptop that can actually use Photoshop and play games at the same time. The Dell XPS 12 will be perfect

  3. My 2 in 1 life is trying to be a teacher and a daughter to my elderly father. A 2 in 1 device would help me keep on top of both, and ease the time crunch I continually feel.

  4. My laprop is ancient and could use for school and work- as for now I use it when I am out but have to find an outlet because it just does not hold a charge- its 6 plus years and 5th battery- My 2 in one is actually many in one both mom and dad to my kids-worker and player

  5. My 2 in 1 lifestyle involves streaming content and browsing the web. A 2 in 1 device would help me for back-to-school, by having the best of productivity and entertainment right at my fingertips.

  6. My son is the one who best explained the 2 in 1 lifestyle:

    In tablet mode, you quickly keep up with your lifestyle (mail, posts, music, games, etc) and the laptop mode is for getting real work done (homework, papers, etc).

    He’s going into High School in the fall and really wanted the XPS12 but I couldn’t afford it and got him a Surface RT. If I could win this my as Dad/god would be cemented (and my younger son would get the Surface)!!!

  7. This would definitely help me seamlessly switch from working on various presentations to just sitting back and enjoying myself when I’m not working. And it would replace my laptop that’s currently being held up by duct tape (wish this was a joke).

  8. I want this for my husband. He has a two hour commute every day (each way) and won’t buy himself anything other than his cell phone for entertainment/productivity. He keeps buying *me* new computers and taking my old ones. It would be awesome for this selfless man to have something that was his very own from day one.

  9. 2 in 1 lifestyle is managing work and home life. I could use the device at work, then in the car to occupy me while waiting to pickup my kids, then hand over to my kids so that they can explore and play games. In the evenings I can search for and make great recipes in the kitchen with ease! At night, I can relax and watch a movie in bed.

  10. My 2 in 1 lifestyle is being a mom and being my own boss. I love them both and they go hand in hand for me sometimes. Having something like this would make my life more organized in such an easier way.

  11. I’m an IT manager and a soccer coach. I need a machine that can handle presentations to the board room and the 8 yr olds running on the grass field.

  12. the little guy needs it for his homework his teacher always always give him tons of home work and he would need his own laptop in order to do his online help classwork this laptop is perfect for him

  13. As a busy mom, and attorney, I always have work to do. Shifting from a laptop to a tablet would be great for when my hands are full, I can still work. The portability would allow me to take my work into the courtroom.

  14. It just makes sense to have and use one piece of technology that can be used several different ways depending on what you are doing.

  15. I am going to school and working this would help me be able to multitask and do some of my school work at home.

  16. My 2 in 1 lifestyle would involve heavily on me and my kids. With the different lifestyles we live this would be perfect to keep them separate. We could use the laptop around the house and the tablet on the go.

  17. My 2 in 1 lifestyle would involve heavily on me and my kids. With the new laptop, I would help keep the family’s different lifestyles separate. While keeping peace with everyone. The laptop feature would be taken advantage of more at home, while the tablet version would be extremely helpful during vacations. This would be a great fit in my household.

  18. My 2 in 1 lifestyle is a dad and a computer programmer; sometimes I have my hands full and need a tablet, but sometimes I need the speed of a keyboard!

  19. m 2 in one lifestyle is being a Customer Service Rep, and taking care of at least 3 dogs most days.

  20. My niece is the 2 in 1 person;she loves to play and create things on the computer AND she likes to draw on the driveway.So creative.

  21. My two in one lifestyle is work and home, like most people. I need something portable and reliable so I am always connected in the most versatile way. A PC is the most versatile and easiest way to work and play.

  22. I’m a full time event planner and part time blogger, working and writing on an old 2006 Dell Inspiron. I love my laptop, but it has lived. The tablet is perfect for quick note taking during meetings or while jotting down ideas for a post, and the full keyboard is ideal for emailing clients, writing full posts or general life activities. This is the best thing, and from Dell? I know it will last for many years to come!

  23. I’m a student. So this device would be perfect for me. I will be using the tablet mode for light work and entertainment such as checking emails, web browsing, music, videos, gaming, and what not. The laptop mode will be used for heavy work that requires or easier on a full PC environment which would be mainly school work. So yeah I hope I win this as it would be a great device to get my hands on. Thanks so mcuh!

  24. I’m a student and I take care of my parents. A 2-in-1 device could help me with schoolwork and keep me entertained in my down time.

  29. Being a college students, this 2 in 1 device would really help me bigtime for all the school works, browsing, and surfing the net. It is really a necessity for every individual. My parents cant really afford to buy a new one just for me, so I kept on using our desktop pc which is used by everyone in the house 24/7. Having this Dell Ultrabook, it will be a life changing experience 😉

  30. I have 3 girls one in college, and one going into High school, and one in Middle school. Projects need to be done, papers need to written, and just one computer in the house is not enough.

  33.

I love the versatility that the XPS 12 offers!

  36. In our case we have separate but common needs for the Dell XPS 12 Ultrabook. My wife, a teacher, requires the power/memory of a laptop for data entry to spreadsheets and lesson plans. I have simpler needs. I need the capability to maintain the functioning of our tablets and smartphones via OS updating and data backup. I can visualize us flipping and swiveling the Dell at the kitchen table for our different tasks.

  37. I do a lot of photography and I want a laptop with photoshop and one thats also good for gaming!The Dell XPS 12 sounds ideal.

Back to School for me is Real Estate School, and then afterwards I will need a device that can allow me to assist clients. The flip monitor is perfect for when I am at a table or desk researching properties and then flipping the screen over so the clients can see what I want to show them. The 2 in 1 Dell XPS 12 is perfect for tabletop/desktop, in the car, or in tight spaces.

  42. My 2 in 1 lifestyle is Mom and Teacher to my kids. The 2 in 1 device would help my kids with school work, and recreation!

  43. I use my laptop for notes and ebooks. It would be great to have the keyboard out for notes and then be able to flip it around for books. It might also be easier to use for notes in tablet mode in classes that are in auditoriums. I’m a broke college kid. Help me out and send some tech my way please.

  44. This would be perfect for my son. He likes to stream music while he is doing his class work. As a busy college student he would be more mobile with this Ultrabook.

  51. I have work to get done, I am a working mother but I also like to write. A 2 in 1 device would help me find quick and healthy recipes while in the kitchen, medical advice when someone gets a scrap or a bruise, then could transform into a extension of my mind when I type all my ideas for stories. The portability and different modes would make its uses invaluable. A 2 in 1 device would uncomplicate my sometimes complicated life.

  52. Ooo, I’d love to win this! I’ve been experimenting with Win8 convertibles, and from what I’ve read and researched, this one is the one to get!

  53. Well, This would definitely help me in school, I would get more work done, and be more productive in my life. I would also be more organized. Winning this would mean a lot to me.

  59. My two in one lifestyle consists of balancing being “mommy” and just being “danni”, as best I can.
