The Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 is an incredible convertible laptop, and as such, you're going to want to keep it safe with a laptop case, hard shell, or protective bag. While it is some extra money that you probably don't want to spend, you'll be glad you spent it when you inevitably drop the laptop by accident and it ends up being perfectly safe instead of in need of repair.

It can be difficult to know which type of protection you should go for, as there are tons of different kinds available and each one offers something unique and beneficial. Overall, though, our favorite choice is the Alapmk Protective Cover Case. Not only is its leather design durable, it's also pretty stylish, too, and you can even use the device with the case on.

If you're looking for a traditional sleeve case, the Tomtoc Protective Sleeve is an excellent choice that balances durability with pricing excellently. The rubber corners of the case are a unique anti-shock feature that no other case on the list has, giving it an edge over the other laptop sleeves when it comes to handling hard impacts.

If you need something that's basically a suit of armor for your Dell XPS 13 2-in-1, both the Pelican 1805 Laptop Case and SwissGear Laptop Backpack are ideal options. These two cases will safeguard your device in a way that no other on this list can, and while they are pricier than the other choices, the drastic increase in protection may be worth it to you.

If you want more for your new Dell convertible, you should also consider picking up some accessories like microSD cards or a docking station to go along with it.
