Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 features and specifications

Dell has redesigned the XPS 13 2-in-1 and added the latest hardware that will deliver higher performance on the machine. The device sports Dell’s InfinityEdge display (essentially, thin bezels) in a 16:10 aspect ratio and seven percent larger screen real estate. Dell says that its most innovative and smallest laptop webcam has been added to the top bezel after customer feedback.

The display has an HDR400 certified UHD+ panel and it also supports Dolby Vision. Dell’s EyeSafe display has been implemented in the machine that apparently reduces the emission of blue light and still manages to retain the colour gamut.

It features a premium design with an aluminum body with a “black carbon fiber” or “arctic white woven glass fiber” palm rests. Users also get Gorilla Glass 5 on the screen, larger touchpad, Dell’s MagLev keyboard, and new hinge design.
