Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 is a recently launched laptop, released by the makers o a strong and affordable brand of laptops, Dell. Folks have long been waiting for this one for a long time. A 2-in-1 version of the Dell XPS 13? Why, that would be the best of both worlds.[the_ad id=”2430″]
In spite of its amazing portability however, in areas where it really counts, like performance and longevity, not so much. Largely, this is due to a lower-power Intel Core Y series processor inside combined with a smaller-than-average 46Whr battery.
This is a beautiul 2-in-1, and I must say, the design o this laptop is obviously impeccable. I am not just impressed about its not-too-good battery life. Well, i you stay in a place with a constant power supply, this laptop is a good choice of a laptop to buy.
Enjoy a better view.

Apart From the not-too-good battery, hat else do I disagree with?
Webcam at the bottom of the screen:
If you Skype a lot, you should know by now that the webcam is a particular weakness of borderless displays like on the XPS 13. Since there’s no space at the top for a camera, Dell’s put it beneath the screen’s chin, which means the camera looks up at your chin instead of at your face. ￼
A webcam that looks up at you is inescapably unflattering. It’s not as bad as the off-angle, side camera in the normal XPS 13, but it’s still a big problem with this laptop. That said, at least you have some recourse with the 2-in-1: just put the laptop in tent mode with the webcam at the top, and it’s good enough in a pinch.
It’s also a little frustrating to me that Dell swapped out the XPS 13’s full-sized SD card slot for a microSD one instead.
Apart from these ‘flaws’, the dell-xps-13-2-in-1 laptop is good to go!
