2-in-1 convertibles are tablets with the ability to rotate, fold, or slide the keyboard behind the display. On most devices, the hinge is situated at the display and keyboard junction.
However, the Dell XPS Duo is unique in that the display sits in a frame that allows the screen to be spun. A 2-in-1 PC, also known as a 2-in-1 tablet, 2-in-1 laptop, 2-in-1 detachable, laplet,tab-top, laptop tablet, or simply 2-in-1, which is a portable computer that has features of both tablets and laptops.
The XPS (Xtreme Performance System) name dates back to 1990 when Dell was more focused on corporate business than consumers. Gateway was number one in the high-end consumer market at that time. Because of this, In early 1993, there was a staff meeting to address how to pursue this emerging market.
In this article, Dell let a host of lofty goals when it set out to develop the XPS 13 2-in-1 laptop. It aimed to create a slim but powerful laptop that could go toe-to-toe with MacBooks. Well i guess we’ll find out how that worked out soon enough.
Design & Display
The XPS-13 2-in-1 is one of the first in the line-up to be offered with a 10th generation 10nm Intel Ice Lake processor with Intel Iris Plus integrated graphics. It has a new 13.4 inch screen with aspect ratio of 16:10, and it was launched in August 2019.
The XPS 13 2-in-1 laptop comes in a box that sets the tone for the laptop’s design experience. The box is sleek, feels well crafted, and looks great. Dell didn’t just mimic Apple; it created its own design and unboxing experience.
Buyers have a choice of two interior colors: arctic white or black. Still, carbon fiber is used in the black color scheme, which not only enhances the look but also the durability of the machine. The white model, while more striking to look at, is made from a woven glass fiber.
From the shape to the weight to the font on the keycaps, the XPS 13 2-in-1 laptop has a real Mac feel to it—and I mean that in the most positive sense. The 16:10 aspect ratio screen pushes the boundaries of the body. The bezels are incredibly thin.
The keyboard, too, is pushed to the edges of the chassis. This gives it a very natural feel. However, the keys themselves are MagLev. This allows it to be much thinner than typical keyboards—24% thinner to be exact—but the feel might turn off some users.
On the display side,the 1920 x 1200 resolution display is bright, crisp and so true to color that professional photographers could happily use this machine regularly.
Not only is it bright and incredibly detailed, it’s also a touchscreen.
Performance & Camera
The camera is really great and it also has good enough resolution for Skype video calls. The onboard camera focuses relatively quickly. It doesn’t present much blurriness, but it also doesn’t demonstrate deep focus or impressive crispness.
It’s suitable for video chats, but little more.Armed with a 10th-generation Intel Core i7-1065G7 and coupled with 16GB of LPDDR4X memory, the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 has more than enough power to deliver when tackling everyday computing tasks.
It’s more than just a productivity laptop, though. While the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 is only equipped with Intel Iris Plus graphics, this little laptop that could has proven that it’s quite capable of handling casual gaming as well as light photo and video editing.
Dell rates the battery life of the XPS 13 2-in-1 laptop’s 4-Cell, 51WHr battery at 16 hours 58 minutes when using Word or Excel. That number drops to 10 hours 50 minutes while streaming Netflix. As a general rule of thumb, with mixed use, the battery last’s eight to 10 hours— on a normal workday. This included mostly word processing but some YouTube video streaming and some photo editing. For the screen brightness, resolution, and the size and heft of this 2-in-1 laptop, I consider that battery life strong.
