A couple of years ago, Dell announced the XPS 13, which was an excellent laptop that had an edge-to-edge display. Now, Dell is bringing the same display to its latest XPS 13 model, which is a 2-in-1. The laptop was leaked yesterday, but they have since made the laptop official.
The laptop brings over the same design as the last XPS 13 model, but it now has the inclusion of the 360-degree foldable hinges that makes it a 2-in-1. It also brings over the “InfinityEdge” design, which has a mere 5.2mm bezel around the 3.3-inch screen. There are two display resolution configurations, one is a 1080p panel, while the other is a QuadHD+ (3200 x 1800) panel. It also comes with either an Intel Core i5 or i7 processors, up to 16GB of RAM and a 1TB SSD.
Dell also made the computer fanless, so it’ll stay quiet even during heavy workloads. However, some performance might be lost when it gets hot, although Dell didn’t specify if that is the case. It measures in at 2.7-pounds and 13.3mm thin, which is smaller than HP’s latest Spectre x360, which weighs in at around 2.85 pounds and 13.8mm thin.
There are also 2 USB 3.0 ports, one of which is Thunderbolt 3.0 compatible. You can also charge the laptop or power two 4K monitors at once thanks to the Thunderbolt port. There is also a USB-A to USB-C adaptor included free of charge, so you’ll be able to connect older accessories.
The XPS 13 2-in-1 will go on sale starting on January 5th for $1,000, which is a bit more expensive than the non-convertible model which is retailing for $800. Stay tuned to TechDependent as we will be covering more of CES 2017. To read all of our coverage so far, click here.
