Re: Question about Dell XPS 12, opinions...

For most tasks, the Dell XPS 12 will feel faster than your existing machines. But it has Intel HD 4000 graphics and no dedicated graphics, so it's not really a gaming machine. You'd have to go with low settings and 1366 x 768 resolution to get just 30 fps in several of the games you listed (particularly Skyrim and Need for Speed newer titles).

12.5-13.3" Ultrabooks rarely have dedicated graphics, and if they do (like the Asus Zenbook Prime UX32VD), they're fairly low end. You'd have to look at a larger laptop like the 15.6" Samsung Series 7 Chronos to get a touch screen and decent midrange dedicated graphics for gaming.
