Intel has introduced their Haswell processor in “Computex 2013” which is a 4th generation processor and now it is used in latest computers and laptops. There is another concept that is the production of hybrid of convertible laptops and people like to use such type of devices. Here we have two laptops having Intel Haswell processor and they are “Dell XPS 12” and “Sony VAIO Duo 13”. Both of the laptops have superb hardware and have their own features. Let have a look that which laptop is better one.
Dell XPS 12 is made with full touch screen display which is provided with aluminum frame. It has thickness and weight of 20.06mm and 1.15 KG whereas Sony VAIO duo 13 has thickness and weight of 19.55mm and 1.32 KG respectively. So Sony’s hybrid is more thick and light weight then Dell’s hybrid. This thing made it attractive against XPS 12.
Both of the devices have touch input screen but their screen sizes are not same. Dell has given a screen of 12.5 inch which gives 1080 pixels sharp display. But the other product has a screen of 13.3 inch providing 1080 pixels HD display. Sony provides a bigger screen with dual digitizer that makes its product effective.
Both of the devices may be provide with core i5 or core i7 processor that is depends on consumer’s choice. In the case of core i7, Dell gives 3.3GHz (4650U) processor but Sony supplied 3GHz (4500U) processor. But in core i5 chip, both of the devices have 4200U processor model with CPU speed of 2.6 GHz. So Dell XPS 12 beat Sony VAIO Duo 13 here.
Webcam and Audio:
You will find some difference in webcam and audio of the both devices. Sony provides two speaker system and 2.07 megapixels webcam. So you can enjoy better audio quality and 1080p recording. But Dell gives 1.3 megapixels webcam for 720p recording along with single speaker. So here is a little difference between both.
Graphics and Memory:
Both hybrids have same graphic processor of “HD Graphics 4400” which is given by Intel. You can choose the RAM memory of your choice till 8GB but basic RAM is 4 GB for both laptops and you can choose storage within 128GB to 512GB. So Dell and Sony are same and equal in this state.
Color Range and Price:
Dell XPS 12 is available only in black color but Sony has provided VAIO Duo 13 in Black and white colors. XPS 12 start price is $1199 but VAIO Duo 13 has basic price of $1399. Difference of the price is due to Sony’s large screen and light weight because this thing made it comfortable to bring somewhere and larger screen has its own value. Dell has also valid price according to the specs of the device and you can choose it also.
