Following a bit of an early leak, Dell has officially taken the wraps off of the 2-in-1 version of its popular XPS 13 notebook. Sporting the same edge-to-edge "Infinity" display that made its predecessors a hit, this new XPS 13 throws a convertible hinge that lets you fold the display back 360-degrees.
Aside from its new convertible skills, the XPS 13 2-in-1 comes with Intel's latest Kaby Lake chips on board, and is said to fetch up to 15 hours of battery life. The 13-inch display is also available in up to a QHD+ (3,200x1,800) resolution with support for displaying vibrant HDR10 content — if you have it on hand. The laptop also throws in a fingerprint reader so you can easily unlock Windows via Windows Hello. An infrared camera will also be Windows Hello-enabled "at a later date," dell says.
Overall, the 2-in-1 XPS 13 looks to offer a pretty similar experience to its non-convertible counterpart. But if you've been aching for an XPS 13 that you can contort to your liking, this looks to be a solid option. The Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 is set to go on sale in the U.S. on January 5 starting at $999.
