Since its debut in 2015, Dell XPS 13 has been a preferred laptop of many possible users because of its classy design and competent performance.
However, some new laptops running on Windows 10 were introduced in the market this year, taking away the spotlight from the Dell XPS 13. Hence, Dell came up with an enhanced version of the XPS13, a 2-in-1 version that can compete well in the convertible laptop’s league.
Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 is just as dependable as the popular Dell XPS 13. Its main advantage is it is versatile enough to function both as a laptop and as a tablet. It is Dell’s big bet in a tough competition with other convertibles such as the Yoga line of Lenovo and x360 of HP.
Thinnest and Lightest XPS Gadget
Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 is the lightest and slimmest among the XPS product line of Dell. In comparison with the compact Ultrabook, the XPS 13 2-in-1 is significantly lighter and thinner, making it a portable device that is accessible to the car.
When it comes to the overall look, however, there is nothing extraordinary about the design of Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 at first look. The 2-in-1 gadget does sound like a typical laptop. It has checkered keyboard surface made of carbon fiber, keyboard backlight feature, glass-protected trackpad, and lustrous aluminum screen cover and bottom. This design makes the XPS 13 2-in-1 look a lot like the forerunner XPS 13. But because it is a 2-in-1 device, this Dell gadget boasts of sleek hinges that support its dual screen feature. The hinges not only act as a sturdy support for the screen but also give an elegant appearance to the entire device.
Efficient Processor Without the Noise
When it comes to using the XPS 13 2-in-1, there is no need to worry about annoying propeller-like sounds usually made by overworked laptops. Even when used for long hours every day, its processor does not create unnecessary noise. This makes it a perfect device to use when working in public places like a library or a coffee shop. However, when used straight for many hours, this gadget has the tendency to heat up.
Reliable Battery Life
One of the most important aspects that should be considered in a device is its battery life. The XPS 13 2-in-1 gadget proves to be competent in this area. With a 7-8 hour battery life, XPS 13 2-in-1 is a reliable device for those who have heavy workloads and are always on the go. In case the battery gets drained and there is no power outlet nearby, Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 has a USB Type-C port where the gadget can be charged with the external battery.
Laptop and Tablet in One Awesome Package
The most appealing feature of this gadget is its capacity to transform from a fully functioning laptop to a handy tablet and vice versa. Thus, Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 can be used in the corporate setting for moderate to heavy workloads. At the same time, it can provide the convenience a tablet gives when the user just wants a laid back time for web surfing, video watching or playing online games.
