Dell Unveils the XPS 13 Convertible Laptop at CES 2017

The Dell XPS 13 and XPS 15 are some of the best laptops out there in terms of design. These laptops come packing the latest specs but are well known for their very thin bezels, something we do not see on many laptops on the market.  This almost bezel-less display has helped Dell position the XPS line as the Laptop line to get if you want a modern looking device that is not just about performance but looks good as well.

With the success of the XPS 13 and 15, Dell is back again this year with the XPS 13 2-in-1 convertible laptop. The company unveiled this device a couple of days ago at the Consumer Electronics Show 2017 (CES). The company says that this is the smallest 13-inch convertible laptop you can get right now.

Just like previous models, the XPS 13 convertible laptop has a InfinityEdge display that the company says is ‘virtually borderless’. The previous model of the XPS 13 was amazing and now the 2-in-1 model takes things to an even higher level. We are seeing this new craze that manufacturers are embracing bringing more convertible devices to the market and Dell doesn’t want to be left behind. These devices make sense as not very many people will want to get a laptop and a tablet at the same time, some want one device that can do both.

The XPS 13 convertible has a QHD+ display that promises a better experience from the previous model. The company also says that this device will be able to last for up to 15 hours per charge. This is the absolute maximum and in real life scenarios you will get a couple of hours less depending on your usage.

A few other specs on the XPS 13 convertible include a 7th generation Intel Core processor, up to 16GB memory options, 256GB SSD and Intel HD graphics. This is a fan-less device that means you get quiet times when using it. The device supports Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth, comes with stereo speaker and a 720p widescreen webcam with integrate dual array microphones.

Besides the XPS 13 2-in-1 convertible, Dell also announced the updated XPS 15. This model comes with updated hardware including the new 7th-generation Intel Core processor, NVIDIA Pascal architecture and a fingerprint reader just to name a few.
