Dell’s new XPS 12, a Surface-like tablet hybrid that leaked out back in September, is now available to purchase. The 12.5-inch device is powered by an Intel Core M processor and attaches magnetically to a physical keyboard — and prices start at $999.99.

As standard, the XPS 12 ships with a 1080p display, a Core M5 processor clocked at 1.7GHz, 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of solid-state storage. Like Apple’s new MacBook, it uses the new USB-C standard, but offers two ports as opposed to just one. Its keyboard is also included.

There’s also a second model priced at $1,299, which is almost identical — with the same processor, RAM, graphics, and ports — but it has a sharper 4K display and 256GB of solid-state storage. Both machines are manufactured out of magnesium alloy like the Surface, and they use Gorilla Glass.

Dell also includes a folio case and a USB-A adapter with these devices, which both come with Windows 10 pre-installed. You can order yours today from, and shipping starts in 13 to 17 business days.
