Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

One year after Dell introduced a convertible model for the XPS 13, the company launched the first 2-in-1 version of the XPS 15 in connection with CES 2018. Along with its 360-degree hinge for folding the 15.6-inch display, the laptop offers differences including a form factor that is 5 percent thinner (0.63 of an inch thick). Dell says that makes the convertible XPS 15 the thinnest 15-inch 2-in-1 on the market. Even with that thin profile, Dell has managed to include quad-core Intel CPU options (eighth-gen Core i5-8305G or Core i7-8705G) that are integrated with discrete AMD graphics (Radeon RX Vega M GL) -- one of the first deployments of a processor integrating Intel CPUs and AMD GPUs. For the display, the XPS 15 2-in-1 comes with options for UHD (3,200 x 1,800) or FHD (1,920 x 1,080) resolution, with brightness of 400 nits. In addition, the XPS 15 2-in-1 offers up to 15 hours of battery life and features GORE Thermal Insulation, which works to remove heat more effectively in order to support improved performance.

The Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 will be available in the spring with a starting price of $1,299.99.
