Dell XPS 15 2-In-1 is the world’s smallest and thinnest 15.6-inch Convertible Laptop. It’s also one of the first to feature an Intel CPU paired with an AMD Radeon Vega M GL GPU, giving you some pretty decent graphics muscle for a superslim two-in-one PC.

This Dell Latest Laptop provides customers with flexible use, like folding the screen all the way back to look like a tablet or propping it up in tent mode as a kitchen counter companion.

You might think that high-performance components fitted into a body that’s only 0.63 inches (16 mm) at its thickest might not be the best idea and, well, you’d be right. Dell developed a special cooling system for it that will help protect your lap from heat.

This premium laptop is not all about the design, it features captivating features from within, Which allows it works well together, offering up performance to handle everything from office work to content creation and gaming.

Display

The XPS 15 2-in-1 15.6-inch laptop continues the XPS display tradition featuring a 4K display which brings an excellent viewing experience. It’s bright, colorful and extremely sharp.

The panel covers an awesome 160 percent of the sRGB color gamut.  The XPS 15 2-in-1 comes with plenty luminous nits of 387, bringing a brighter display compare to laptops within the same price range.

Keyboard and Touchpad

Dell calls the XPS 15’s keyboard “Maglev,” short for “magnetic levitation.” The short version is that it reduces the thickness of the keyboard but uses magnets and a metal plate to create resistance. The Maglev keyboard on the XPS 15 2-in-1 has just 0.6 millimeters of travel, with 71 grams of actuation required to press the keys. The keyboard is spacious, at 4.1 x 3.1 inches, and because it’s a Windows Precision Touchpad, it had no issues responding to Windows 10 gestures like two-finger scrolling and swiping apps down into the taskbar.

Performance

The new Intel-meets-AMD processor inside the XPS 15 2-in-1 is a force to be reckoned with. Dell promised the new Kaby Lake G processor a speedy 8th Gen Core Intel CPU with AMD’s Radeon RX Vega M graphics on board which would deliver Nvidia GTX 1050-equivalent performance.

The Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 delivers 100-500 point higher scores in 3DMark and CineBench than the regular XPS 15 equipped with a Nvidia GTX 1050.

The Laptop comes with a sensor hub which works in tandem with software on the processor to monitor the device’s cooling and power to make these decisions for you, so, its less of a tweakable overclock and more of an automatic performance boost.

Armed with an Intel Core i7-8705G CPU, 16GB of RAM and a 1TB PCIe NVMe SSD, the XPS 15 2-in-1 is definitely not a pushover.

Battery

The Battery life comes up a little short at 6 hours and 46 minutes in video streaming, which is likely due to the 4K display since Dell rates a full-HD configuration at nearly 16 hours of runtime. The XPS 15 2-in-1 does charge pretty fast, though, and Dell’s Power Manager app lets you quickly prioritize performance and cooling for your needs.

Other features

Because of the superthin bezels around the sides and top of the display, Dell put the webcam below the screen. It’s an awkward position for video calls and for using the IR camera to sign into the PC with facial recognition. There’s a fingerprint reader built into the power button if you want to use that instead.
