CES 2017: Why The DELL XPS 13 Won Best PC Of The Year
Look as if there are two big ways to get some attention for your new desktop at CES 2017. One is to make a dynamic powerful gaming system like the triple-screen Project Valerie from Razer we've seen from the event. The other is to bring a new two-in-one hybrid that darkens the line between laptop and tablet. This flipping, folding and transforming touchscreen laptops were everywhere at the show in different variants, from inexpensive to high-ends.
The Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 has everything we want in an ultraportable, a whole complete package. It preserves the refined style of the previous XPS 13, which was the best Windows laptop of both 2015 and 2016. it's more powerful than similarly thin machines and Dell's most popular XPS 13 Developer Edition line has become recognized for one thing bringing a "just works" Linux experience to the Dell's Ultrabooks.
The Dell XPS 13 Specs And Features
Boasting 7th generation Dell XPS 13 DE uses the same wonderful InfinityEdge display that sports a 13-inch screen into a body that looks and feels like an 11-inch laptop. Powered by i7-7500U Kaby Lake chip with 16GB of RAM and a 512GB solid state drive. As configured, the whole would set you back $1,799. The lowest model which has the 1920x1080 display comes with an i5 chip, 128GB SSD, and only 8GB of RAM-can be had for only $975. For an extra $375, you can step up to the higher resolution screen and with a 256GB SSD. There's also a new variant for what Dell calls a "Rose Gold" exterior. A tiny stylus comes tucked away in the base, thus the real winning feature here comes from the close partnership with Google to make this a showcase for new Chromebook features.
The Dell XPS 13 Verdict
The XPS 13 DE is a grotesque machine (webcam aside) regardless of what OS it's running. If you want a machine that's stylish, arguably powerful, light in your bag, and to run Linux without a hitch, the Dell XPS 13 DE continues to be the best choice. If you've been waiting for the ideal convertible laptop, you'll want to seriously grab this one.
