The Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 is said to have a comfortable keyboard, vibrant infinity edge display, impressive audio and dynamic power mode boost speed when you need it. But the battery life isn't as long as on other 2-in-1 laptops in the competition. Also, the camera is still beneath the display and Intel Core U machines are faster. Find out the review to prove that Dell XPS 13 2 in 1 is really a hybrid laptop and tablet In 1.

Dell XPS 13 2-in-1: A Hybrid Laptop And Tablet In 1

The regular Dell XPS 13 has been consumer's favorite laptop for more than two years. This is because of its luxuriously lightweight chassis, gorgeous InfinityEdge display and a long battery range. Now, Dell has taken all the slim carbon fiber goodness from its flagship ultrabook and applied it to a brand new hybrid, which goes on sale Jan. 5 on Dell.com and at Best Buy online.

According to Laptop Mag, unveiling this week, for a starting price of $999, the new Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 will be recognized as a machine with a distinct design and features that make it a mostly satisfying convertible among the others. The body frame is thinner than the one on the XPS 13 clamshell, which makes it easier to use as a tablet. Additional to that, this laptop is a totally fanless affair, so you can curl up with an episode of Black Mirror and not have to worry about getting confused by noise.

Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 Review

On the outside, the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 looks like the XPS 13 laptop, but the company has changed the hinge connecting the keyboard base and screen. Take note that the screen can be rotated up to 360 degrees to turn the device into a tablet. Indeed, it is a hybrid laptop and tablet In 1.

The XPS 13 2-in-1 weighs 1.24 kilograms and is surprisingly thin and light, thanks to the people who did its intelligent design. With its 13.3-inch edge-to-edge screen, the device fits in a typical frame of an 11.6-inch laptop. As per PC World, there’s more screen to work with and less border surrounding the monitor or screen display.

Another plus points on the screen is the 3200 x 1800-pixel screen, which is the maximum resolution. The colors were bright and vivid, and videos played smoothly. A 4K option won’t be available, unfortunately. You do get fewer ports than on the regular XPS 13, and the battery life could be longer, but overall, the XPS 13 2-in-1 is a remarkable hybrid laptop and tablet In 1.
