This 2-in-1 has everything a great hybrid laptop needs: it’s light but well-made, it has one of the best non-4K screens going, and Intel’s new Xe GPU is even fit for some challenging games. Just make sure you're fine with a shallow, clicky keyboard before buying. Oh, and the 2-in-1 mechanism adds a significant premium too.
Take a look at the Dell XPS 13 9310. You won't be disappointed with its solid design offering desktop-class performance made better with Intel Xe and Thunderbolt 4!
Sleek, powerful, and flexible, Dell's latest XPS 13 2-in-1, now packing "Tiger Lake" silicon, is our top pick among premium convertible laptops.
The Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 9310 gets Intel’s 11th gen Core i7-1165G7 chip, meaning gaming is actually conceivable on this sub-three-pound laptop.
If you’re deciding whether to buy the XPS 13 or the XPS 13 2-in-1, the differences are simple — but they’re also significant and worth thinking about. The convertible form factor is the most obvious distinction, but I would argue it’s not the most important one (unless your job requires tablet use). You’ll be using the keyboard a lot, so you’ll want to figure out which one you prefer (if you’ve used MacBook butterfly keyboards and other MacBook keyboards, those are a rough approximation).
Under the hood, Dell’s Tiger Lake update to its XPS 13 2-in-1 convertible makes it the best iteration of the line yet. But an unreasonably shallow keyboard makes using it as a laptop a chore.
Dell's XPS 13 2-in-1 brings Intel 11th Gen brawn to a fantastic convertible that flaunts a premium, ultrathin design, long battery life and a bright display.
At the same time, the 2-in-1 has its advantages with the form-factor and touchscreen, as well as the more capable thermal implementation, so it’s both of them are solid buys, just cater to slightly different needs. David’s video below should shed a bit more light on the two.
A trim-to-the-max chassis, a beautiful screen, and a cutting-edge Intel "Tiger Lake" processor help the latest Dell XPS 13 affirm its status as today's top high-end ultraportable.
