Dell XPSIn converting a powerhouse laptop into a hybrid machine you actually want to use as a tablet, Dell turned to Intel’s new Kaby Lake G processors to deliver discrete-level graphics on a single chip. This 15-inch performance machine also introduces Dell’s new magnetically driven keyboard and innovative cooling system to further reduce weight and compress the size of this convertible notebook. For $1,299, give or take, you can get a 15.6-inch Full HD touch display, 8th-gen Intel Core i5-8305G processor with Radeon RX Vega M GL graphics, 8GB of DDR4 memory and a 128GB solid-state drive (SSD). Cool.

Dell XPSFor a 4K screen on the XPS 15 2-in-1, you’ll need to spend at least $2,099 and upgrade to a configuration starring the Intel Core i7-8705G processor with the same Radeon RX Vega M GL graphics, 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. You get the silver-colored anodized aluminum lid and base with the carbon fiber keyboard rest with aluminum hinges that allow for 360 degrees of rotation. The thing that’s truly unique to this laptop’s exterior is the rear vent that looks a bit like a reverse air scoop. This is where the laptop expels a lot of its heat.

Dell XPSDell claims this machine to be the smallest and thinnest 15.6-inch 2-in-1 laptop available today at just 0.35-0.63 inches (0.9-1.6cm) thin and 13.9 inches (35.4cm) wide. The laptop also weighs 4.3 pounds (1.97kg) to start, with higher-end options likely to add a few ounces. Comparatively the Dell XPS 15 measures in at a larger 14.06 x 9.27 x 0.45-0.66 in (35.7 x 23.5 x 1.1-1.7cm), but is surprisingly 0.3 pounds lighter than its hybridized version.

Dell XPSDell has managed to make available within the XPS 15 2-in-1: two Thunderbolt 3 and two USB-C 3.1, all of which support charging and DisplayPort, a microSD card reader and a headset jack. Considering today's standards, that's all you need during a working day. Dell’s next-generation InfinityEdge display with a new 1,500:1 contrast ratio is something your eyes will be thankful for. All said and done, the XPS 15 2-in-1 can be compared only to Apple MacBook and that's enough to say.
