Dell xps 13 2

Not only is the Dell XPS 13 one of Dell’s best-known laptops, but it’s one of the best-known laptops, period. If you know anything about Windows laptops, you’ve probably heard its name. It’s great in pretty much every way, and it just keeps getting better.

So it’s forgivable lớn hear about a “Dell XPS 13 2-in-1” & assume it’s a run-of-the-mill XPS 13 that you can flip around. But the XPS 13 2-in-1 is very much a máy tính xách tay of its own, with a different mix of trade-offs và considerations from its clamshell counterpart. In some areas (lượt thích graphics performance), the convertible is a step ahead of the standard XPS; in others (lượt thích the keyboard), it’s compromising a bit. The best Model for you depends on the type of tasks you’re looking lớn vì chưng.

Edge-to-edge keyboard, large touchpad — the works.

This year’s 2-in-1 starts at $1,099.99 for a Chip Core i3-1115G4 processor, 8GB of RAM, và a 256GB SSD. You can spec that all the way up lớn $2,249.99 (listed now at $1,999.99) for a 3840 x 2400 display, a bộ vi xử lý Core i7-1165G7 CPU, 32GB of RAM, and a 1TB SSD. You can also pay $50 extra for the white (“frost”) color rather than the silver & blaông xã mã sản phẩm & $60 extra to lớn nâng cấp to Windows 10 Pro.

The ports support up to two 4K displays và data transfers up khổng lồ 40Gbps.
Apart from that, the new 2-in-1 has largely the same look as its predecessor và the clamshell XPS, complete with a slyên and sturdy aluminum chassis, a 19trăng tròn x 1200 (16:10) Gorilla Glass screen, and four ports (two USB-C with Thunderbolt 4, DisplayPort, & Power nguồn Delivery, one tai nghe jack, và one microSD card reader). Dell has made a few tweaks as well: the webcam now supports Windows Hello, there’s a new “frost” color option, RAM has been bumped from 3733MHz to 4267MHz, the touchpad is quieter, and there’s an updated microSD reader that Dell says will deliver better performance. That’s all well & good, but the processor is the star of the show here — và it is a star.

For general performance, the 1165G7 handled my office workload, which includes a dozen-ish Chrome tabs, a few other apps lượt thích Slaông chồng & Spotify, và some downloading, file copying, and other office-y stuff in the background, with no problem. I never heard the fans spin up or felt any heat unless I was running an intense program. This is the experience you’ll have with any machine with an i7, but you certainly aren’t sacrificing any performance for this convertible size factor.

Heavier media work is where this system starts lớn stvà out. The 2-in-1 took 10 minutes và 5 seconds khổng lồ export our 5-minute, 33-second 4K video clip in Adobe Premiere Pro. That’s 38 seconds faster than the regular XPS 13 — effectively comparable. Both systems are faster than any 10th Gen Ice Lake máy vi tính with integrated graphics, & they beat the Asus ZenBook 14 with the same processor (which took 11 and a half minutes). They also both chiến bại out lớn the Arm-powered MacBook Air (which doesn’t even have sầu a fan) và Apple MacBook phiên bản Pro, which finished the job in 8:15 & 7:39, respectively.

Where the 2-in-1 really differentiates itself from the clamshell, though, is gaming performance. You can actually play a fair number of games on this máy tính xách tay without needing lớn bump the resolution down. The 2-in-1 smoked the clamshell on Rocket League’s maximum settings (an average of 120fps, lớn the clamshell’s 111fps) và League of Legends (226fps to lớn the clamshell’s 205fps). You’ll only see 60fps on either XPS 13 since that’s the maximum their screens can display, but those results show how much higher Dell has clocked the 2-in-1 over the standard XPS.

The display covers 100 percent of the sRGB spectrum và 78 percent of AdobeRGB, and it reaches 469 nits of brightness.

The hinge is sturdy và doesn’t add too much lớn the bottom bezel.
The 2-in-1 is putting up such impressive numbers that there are actually games where you’ll see better performance than you will on the clamshell. It breezed through Overwatch’s Ultra settings, averaging 71fps. That beats the standard XPS 13, which averaged 48fps on the same premix — a difference you’ll notice in gameplay. It also beats Lenovo’s IdeaPad Slyên ổn 7 with AMD’s eight-core Ryzen 7 4800U, which put up 46fps & actually isn’t too far off a system I tested with the most powerful Tiger Lake processor (the bộ vi xử lý Core i7-1185G7) which averaged 89fps.

The really exciting news is that you can actually play Shadow of the Tomb Raider on this machine at 1080p. The 2-in-1 averaged 36fps on the game’s built-in benchmark (at the lowest-possible settings). That’s just two off from the newest MacBook Air with Apple’s M1 chip (38fps), which has been outperforming 1165G7 systems across the board. Now, you may very well not want to play demanding titles lượt thích Shadow of the Tomb Raider at 38fps, but you can play them on this machine without feeling lượt thích you’re watching a flipbook. That’s a big accomplishment for these integrated graphics, especially considering that the standard XPS 13 only averaged 22fps on the same benchmark.

Agree to lớn Continue: Dell XPS 13 (2020)

Every smart device now requires you to lớn agree to a series of terms and conditions before you can use it — contracts that no one actually reads. It’s impossible for us to lớn read và analyze every single one of these agreements. But we started counting exactly how many times you have sầu lớn hit “agree” to lớn use devices when we đánh giá them, since these are agreements most people don’t read và definitely can’t negotiate.

To start using the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 (2020), you’ll need lớn agree khổng lồ the following:

A request for your regionA request for your keyboard layoutWindows 10 license agreement và Dell Terms of Sale / License AgreementMicrosoft accountPIN

You can also say yes or no lớn the following:

Wi-FiWindows Hello face and fingerprint recognitionPrivacy settings (speech recognition, location, Find My Device, sharing diagnostic data, inking & typing, tailored experience, advertising ID)Tell Microsoft how you plan lớn use your device for customized suggestions (you can choose between gaming, schoolwork, creative sầu, entertainment, family, và business)Connect an Android phoneOneDrive sầu backupOffice 365Allow Microsoft khổng lồ collect information including location and location history, contacts, voice input đầu vào, speech và handwriting patterns, typing history, tìm kiếm history, calendar details, nội dung & communication history, messages, và appsSign up for Dell’s Support và ProtectionMcAfee security subscription

That’s six mandatory agreements & 16 optional ones to use the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 (2020).

Similar to lớn that of the clamshell XPS, however, the convertible’s cooling system (including two fans, hidden vents in the hinge, và what Dell calls “an ultra-thin vapor chamber”) is being pushed khổng lồ its limit during these high-intensity tasks. During the Premiere Pro export & my gaming sessions, the CPU spent some time in the high 90s (Celsius) và even hit 100 a few times. This may cause problems for the XPS form factor down the line if Hãng sản xuất Intel doesn’t make significant gains in efficiency. On the plus side, the keyboard & touchpad never got hot at all. (The keyboard got toasty on the clamshell.)

So the 2-in-1 gives you better graphics performance than the standard XPS (as well as a convertible khung factor) for just a slightly higher price. What’s the catch? There are two worth considering.

The Dell hình ảnh is slightly larger than it was on the last 2-in-1.
The first is battery life. I averaged eight hours and 50 minutes using the 2-in-1 as my primary work driver with the screen at 200 nits of brightness. That’s quite good amuốn the Tiger Lake systems we’ve seen so far, & it means you should get a full workday from one charge. But it’s a bit worse than the standard XPS, where I usually saw nine hours và 15 minutes — a small difference but one that could be important khổng lồ students or frequent business travelers who are looking for every ounce of juice they can get.

The second trade-off lớn consider is the keyboard. The standard XPS 13 has one of my all-time favorite laptop keyboards; it’s snappy, quiet, và comfortable, with a really nice texture. The 2-in-1 has a different keyboard that Dell calls the “Next Gen MagLev keyboard.” It has wider keycaps with just 0.7milimet of travel. It feels similar to lớn using the old low-profile butterfly keyboard on the 2019 Apple MacBook phiên bản Pro. Personally, I hate this. Typing on the convertible feels lượt thích slamming my fingers onkhổng lồ flat plastic. But I begrudgingly acknowledge that some people (including Verge deputy editor Dan Seifert) prefer these kinds of keys.

Overall, the XPS 13 2-in-1 9310 is an excellent Windows convertible. It keeps the slim, sturdy, premium build chất lượng that makes the XPS line the best of the best while also delivering some of the best performance you can get from an ultraportable máy tính xách tay. It’s a formidable competitor to lớn Apple’s groundbreaking MacBooks, especially if you’re looking for a touchscreen và a convertible form factor.

If you’re deciding whether to lớn buy the XPS 13 or the XPS 13 2-in-1, the differences are simple — but they’re also significant & worth thinking about. The convertible khung factor is the most obvious distinction, but I would argue it’s not the most important one (unless your job requires tablet use). You’ll be using the keyboard a lot, so you’ll want to figure out which one you prefer (if you’ve used MacBook butterfly keyboards and other MacBook keyboards, those are a rough approximation). You should also consider the sorts of tasks you’ll be putting your system through và whether a significant increase in graphics performance (especially with demanding games) is worth giving up a bit of battery life. And of course, there’s the price difference.

Anyone who’s considering an XPS 13 & thinks they might prefer a convertible should definitely consider the 2-in-1. Just don’t assume they’re the exact same package.
