Best Ultrabook of the year?
Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 (7390)
This 2-in-1 has all the right specs to make it truly awesome
Dell's XPS 13 2-in-1 used to have a weak processor, but that changed for 2019. The new XPS 13 2-in-1 (7390) brings Intel's 10nm 10th Gen Core-I processors, a 4K 16:10 display, and a gorgeous arctic white woven glass fiber design to make what looks to be the ultimate 2-in-1 PC. Toss in a MagLev keyboard and new speakers that sound great, and we think this is going to be the killer laptop this year.
