Dell XPS 13 Latest News: 2-in-1 Hybrid Laptop Goes On Sale On January 5; Specs, Features, Price Revealed – Mobile & Apps
Many agree that the consumer laptop model from Dell, the Dell XPS 13, is a great buy because of its overall design, impressive performance, and long-lasting battery. But this flagship laptop has been given another version, which will be sold on the official website and Best Buy online on Jan. 5.
Dell XPS 13 hybrid laptop was introduced at the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show. It will be available at a starting price of $999. The convertible device is not just a refreshed version of the previous model but a device given a slightly thinner design that makes it a tablet that is more convenient to use.
The 2-in-1 laptop is similar to the regular Dell XPS 13 in which one cannot tell the difference when placed in the room, Laptopmag noted in its review. However, the significant change is the presence of the hinge and the fact that it can be rotated to take on four display modes.
Inside, the Dell XPS 13 has the Intel Core i5 and i7 series of processors on board. The Gorilla Glass display is in full HD or 1800p resolution. The convertible laptop also has fewer ports compared to its regular brother. Dell has also adopted the USB Type-C ports, with two of them used for display output and charging. There is also a Thunderbolt 3 port to allow users to charge and power up to 4K displays.
The Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 hybrid also has a USB-A adapter that is included in the box so it can support regular USB accessories. A microSD slot has replaced the full SD card reader and as noted by The Verge, this will surely disappoint many photographers. The webcam position of the hybrid is one of its downsides as it is awkwardly located beneath the display.
Overall, Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 convertible laptop is a capable device. The battery life may not be as powerful and long-lasting but the device offers comfort and portability. It would make a great option for those who like to go for hybrid devices. Meanwhile, check out the hybrid in the video below.
