Dell XPS 15 goes 2-in-1 with CES 2018 refresh

Dell XPS 15 goes 2-in-1 with CES 2018 refresh”

It's certainly not unusual to see big tech companies claim various unique achievements, firsts and records for new products unveiled at major trade shows like CES, but whether or not the Dell XPS 15 is one-of-a-kind, its state-of-the-art features can not be ignored. Since it's just 1mm less than the clamshell XPS 15, the new hybrid didn't strike me as noticeably skinnier than before, but it's still a pleasant device to hold and behold. The setup uses opposing magnets instead of switches or membranes to push buttons back up and makes for very thin keyboard designs.

The XPS 15 2-in-1 will doubtless be welcomed by those who found the XPS 13 2-in-1 lacking on the performance front, and this new convertible machine is certainly powerful.

It's a feeling you'll probably get used to over time, and it didn't affect the accuracy of my typing.

Behold, Dell's new XPS 15 convertible. We'll keep you posted once Dell has more information regarding the laptop's arrival in Malaysia.

In addition to slimmer profiles, the Intel processor is supposed to provide graphics prowess that's comparable to systems with discrete GPUs. Being a 2-in-1, you can now use the XPS 15 in four different modes, much like every other 2-in-1 device in the market. The star of the show is likely to be the XPS 15's 15.6-inch 4K display, which boasts 100% Adobe RGB color spectrum and might just drain that battery faster than the quoted life would have us believe. Thanks to Adobe RGB support, the XPS 15 2-in-1 is flawless for creatives who need the images and videos they produce to look the same in the real world as they do on their display. The narrow bezels also added to its appeal, making the screen look more visually arresting. Like many other active pens, this one has 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity and tilt functionality, allowing you to take notes and sketch like you were using a pencil and paper.

As continuation to a prior collaboration on the Dell Inspiron 15 5000 series laptop in 2017, commercialization of Goodix's innovative fingerprint solution on the latest XPS 13 signifies an even stronger bond between the two companies.

Dell will launch the new XPS 15 2-in-1 sometime this spring, and configurations will start at $1299.99. The new device is apparently the world's "smallest and thinnest 15.6-inch 2-in-1" device, too.
