Dell Modern portfolio is difficult to imagine without Dell XPS 13. Although his title only notebook in the world with a thin frame device has lost a few days ago, the company compensates for the loss, using a small trick. A novelty presented at the exhibition, has become Dell XPS 13 2-in-1, is positioned as the most compact 13 “convertible. But here there is one small problem, which we discovered when we first met with a novelty.
Essentially the equipment has changed. The main point remains 13,3 “Infinity display with an extremely thin bezel, allowing XPS February 13-in-1 looks very compact He was even smaller than the standard model of transformer dimensions are 304 x 199 mm 13.7 (Dell XPS 13:.. 304 x 200 . x 15 mm) Weight transformer remained the same – about 1.2 kg.
One of the major differences between the two models is the hinge. It allows you to fully open the screen and turn the laptop into a tablet. Demonstrated devices opened flawlessly, but in the name of such mobility had to sacrifice performance – it is the presentation of Dell maintained silence.
After all, while a standard laptop Dell XPS 13 is equipped with a full processor generation Core-i Kaby Lake, XPS February 13-in-1 content with just chips Core-m – although scheme names (Core i5-7Y54, Core i7-7Y75 etc. .d.) points to something else. First, the transformer is losing fans, and secondly, quickly becomes a loss of performance.
Initially, the market will be three configurations XPS 13 2-in-1 with 8 GB of the RAM, connector USB Type-C, Thunderbolt 3, card reader, Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth. Entry-level model for 1.399 euros will receive Core i5-7Y54, 128 GB SSD and bar Full-HD. The top model of 1.649 and 1.899 euro got screens with a resolution of QHD +, PCIe-SSD capacity of 256 and 512 GB and a processor Core i7-7Y54.
The battery life is up to 15 and 11 hours – the first digit corresponds to the model Full-HD. The body is made of aluminum and carbon fiber, the quality of materials and workmanship has made a good impression on us.
The novelty price higher than the price of the standard XPS 13 to 150 euros. Given the fact that it uses less powerful processor, we believe that the choice in favor of the XPS 13 2-in-1 is justified only if the user really need a tablet mode. Sales have already begun, customers will receive their transformers in a week.
