Dell’s XPS: the smallest 2-in-1 laptop

There'll be no bezel here


Dell is bolstering its XPS line of laptops and two-in-one computers that easily transform from a laptop to a tablet. The new Dell XPS 13-inch two-in-one is the smallest of its kind ever made. The display is beautiful and virtually bezel-less on the top and the side of the screen. The webcam has been placed at the bottom of the screen so it’s less hassle when transformed to a tablet and gives the display more real estate.

The XPS 13 two-in-one packs a seventh-gen Intel Core processor (i5 or i7), a quad or full HD display, Intel’s 615 graphics chip and a promise of 15 hours’ battery life. RAM options range from 4 to 16GB, storage space starts at 128GB and ends with a 1TB SSD. As thin as it may be, it comes with a Thunderbolt 3 port (doubling as an AC power port), a USB Type-C port, a headphone jack and a microSD card reader. There’s no USB-A port, but Dell does ship a USB-A to USB-C adapter with every device.
