Dell XPS 13 2-in-1

   The Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 is the follow up model of the Dell XPS 13 2015 model. What they did to the new edition is that they added a hinge that allows the user to bend the screen to a full 360 degree and make it look like a tablet. The entry model starts at $1000. What we have here is the configuration of the $1300 model. These are the important specifications: The Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 has a 13.3 inch display screen. The resolution is 1920 x 1080 touch display. It comes with a 1.3GHz Intel Core i7-7Y75 processor. The Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 has a 128MB Intel Graphics 615. The internal storage is 256GB SSD. For connectivity purpose it ha a 80211acWI-FI and a Bluetooth 4.0. The dimensions are 0.32-0.54 x 1i.98 x 7.8 inches. For audio purposes, it uses the Max Audio Pro 1W x2. The Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 uses the 4 cell ( 46 Whr ) battery. The Operating system is Windows 10 Home ( 64 Bit ). It weighs 2.7 pounds.
  The Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 has a snap on keyboard that makes it more of a laptop than a tablet.  This hybrid convertible laptop has all metal body design.  It is thin and It is tightly packed. All the space has been properly used. The Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 has high grade features such as: a fingerprint sensor, Thunderbolt USB C-ports, dual lens IR webcam. It also has a microSD card slot and the display is just so nice. The power button is located on the right side edge. You can use the fingerprint sensor to log in to Window Hello. The Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 keyboard travel speed is 1.3 millimeters, and is just a bit short than the 1.5 millimeter standard.. Once you get used to it, it won't bother you.The i7 chip is a lot faster and better than the i5 chip on the standard model. I would choose the $1200 model than the $999 model. The styling of the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 looks so good. There were some concessions that were made but it still looks better than the previous model.
   This 2-in 1 laptop uses the fanless “Y” series processors.  ( It used to be called Core M ). The Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 uses the Kaby Lake 1.3GHz 7th generation.  This is performs better than the Skylake 6th generation chip. On the Geekbench  4  CPU . The user will get 15 to 20% more effective performance with the Kaby Lake processor on the single core and multi-core performance. This can vary depending on applications wherein the delta is larger or smaller. Intel is more fixed and concentrated on battery life with the Y series. Remember that this is a fanless 2-in-1 convertible and of course it cannot be compared to laptops that have fans. A fanless machine will be slower than others that have fans. It works well as a traditional laptop. You can use this like a tent and in standing mode. The Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 will give you steady performance when you are working at home or even in your office.. It is suitable to use for business purposes. The battery can last for a full 8 hours. I do not advice to use this 2-in-1 convertible for games or running your browser on more than 10 tabs. This will kill your battery life. The Dell XPS1 3 2-in-1 is still better than the previous model.
