  • When Dell introduced the XPS 13 laptop in 2012 it was a revelation—the first Wintel product to successfully take on and in most instances, surpass, what many considered the industry's best and lightest laptop—Apple's MacBook Air.Moreover, since then, Dell...

  • Good: Long battery life, Edge-to-edge Infinity display, Terrific Wi-Fi connectivity, Fast performance, Great connectivity,

    Bad: Non-touch, non QHD display in base versions

    Powered by the latest generation Intel Core processors, the Dell XPS 13 is available in a variety of configurations to meet almost any budget or performance requirement. Battery life is exemplary, and the Infinity display lets Dell squeeze a 13-inch clas...

  • Good: Excellent build quality, Thin, light, portable chassis, Good input devices, Great IPS screen with extremely high brightness, Presumably good battery life on the FHD version

    Bad: The system can't utiliza the full performance of the SoC, Aggressive (1 kHz) PWM up to 120 cd/m2 (our Health-Guard profile takes care of that), The QHD+ version has subpar battery life, Rather limited I/O

    In the end, Dell was able to port all the cool features about the good old XPS 13 with fewer trade-offs than we expected. The build quality is superb – it feels tight, light, thin and premium. The input devices are comfortable to use and will definitely g...

  • Aiming their sights at a slightly different corner of the market, this year Dell unveiled the XPS 13 2-in-1, a convertible tablet with a 360-degree hinge. However, instead of just putting a new hinge on the existing XPS 13, Dell has designed the all-new X...

  • Good: Powered by an Intel Core i7-7Y75 (7th Gen CPU – Kaby Lake), 512GB SSD storage, Phenomenal disk performance, 13.3″ Touchscreen, USB-C and Thunderbolt, Windows 10

    Bad: Pricey, No video or HDMI out ports, Final Thoughts, If you're after a high performance, premium Windows based 2-in-1 device, then the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 is definitely worth considering. Use it as a laptop or a tablet, in tent or stand mode, the choice is...

    If you're after a high performance, premium Windows based 2-in-1 device, then the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 is definitely worth considering. Use it as a laptop or a tablet, in tent or stand mode, the choice is yours. It's compact and fairly light-weight with exc...

  • I've recently been testing out a few Dell laptops, including the new XPS 13 2-in-1, a model Dell boasts is the smallest 13-inch, 2-in-1 laptop on the planet It also brought home a bunch of hardware from CES 2017, including a CES Innovation award Does this...

  • Dell has capitulated to HP and Lenovo by producing a convertible version of its well reviewed XPS 13 Windows laptop. The entry-level version costs $999.99, which puts it $200 above the base-model XPS 13. After using the convertible for the past few weeks...

    Good: Attractive, very portable, wellbuilt chassis. Highquality, slimbezel display. Great keyboard and trackpad

    Bad: Direct competitor HP Spectre x360 beats it in performance, battery life, connectivity and price in essentially the same form factor

    Every major player in the Windows PC business has a 2-in-1 laptop these days. Lenovo's Yoga line has been very successful, the HP Spectre x360 I recently reviewed is an excellent product, and now Dell has hopped on the train with the XPS 13 2-in-1. Announ...

  • Good: Thin-bezeled design is still eye-catching and futuristic-looking two years later, Even lighter weight and smaller footprint than the original XPS 13, 16GB RAM and PCIe SSD options, Standard touchscreen plus a convertible hinge and pen support make it more...

    Bad: Y-series Core i5 and i7 processors are better than they once were, but not as good as the 15W processors in slightly larger laptops, 4GB and 128GB SATA hard drive in the $1,000 base model are both weak; the 8GB/256GB $1,200 model is the minimum you should...

    Despite its foibles, Dell's 2015 redesign of its XPS 13 Ultrabook was our favorite PC laptop for a long time. Its super-thin bezel was visually striking and dramatically reduced its footprint, and it was solidly built. It had a good keyboard, Microsoft Pr...

  • Dell's XPS 13 is one of the best laptops on the market. We like it so much, we even made it one of our top picks for both 2016 and 2015. This year, though, Dell is changing things up a bit with an all-new model: The Dell XPS 13 2-in-1.Yes, Dell has turned...

    Good: Solid build quality, Great keyboard, Smooth trackpad, Bright, sharp display

    Bad: Terrible power button, Unpredictable sleep behavior, Difficult to open, Awkward as a tablet, Limited port options

    Dell's XPS 13 has been one of our favorite laptops for the past couple of years because of its sleek, trendsetting design, great keyboard, and solid performance. When it debuted back in the spring of 2015, it was one of the first Windows laptops that real...

    Good: This new version of the XPS 13 adds a hybrid hinge and thinner body. The edge-to-edge, nearly bezel-free display makes maximum use of space, and the starting price is extremely reasonable

    Bad: Standard USB ports get swapped for USB-C ones, the Intel Y-series processor isn't as fast as those found in more traditional laptops and the power button can be tricky to hit

    Despite a few trade-offs in ports and processing power, this slimmer hybrid version of the XPS 13 is an excellent full-time laptop and part-time tablet...

    Bad: CPU and GPU throttling when under stressful loads, smaller battery capacity than XPS 13 9350/9360, key feedback could have been firmer, no integrated USB Type-A port, suboptimal camera placement, relatively narrow color gamut, no side volume controls, po...

    Why purchase the original XPS 13 when its more versatile 2-in-1 alternative is available?Despite the almost identical appearance, there are still several reasons to consider the standard XPS 13. Firstly, the original XPS 13 is ever so slightly thicker and...

    Good: Same solid-metal design, slim bezels as XPS 13 laptop, Includes IR camera and fingerprint reader, Bright, attractive screen, Fanless cooling

    Bad: Battery life, while good, can't match some competing 2-in-1s, 4GB RAM on base model, No full-size USB ports, SD card slot, Camera still below the screen

    Dell keeps what's great about its flagship consumer laptop—solid frame, bright screen—in its convertible version, without adding weight or bulk. But competing 2-in-1s from Lenovo and HP are tough to top in this $1,000-plus price range. Read More...

    Bad: Limited connectivity options, May require additional dongles and accessories, Awkward webcam angle when used in Laptop mode

    With the XPS 13 2-in-1, Dell marries the strengths of its ultraportables with the flexibility of a convertible laptop. You'll probably need dongles, but strong performance and ultimate portability make it a worthy contender...
