Dell Bends Over Backwards To Improve The Ultrabook

You get a fair amount of choice with the new Ice Lake powered XPS13, though of course it will cost you a fair amount to get the best of everything.  You can choose between two touchscreens, a 1920×1200 or a 3840×2400 model, the processors range from a Core i3-1005G1 to a Core i7-1065G7, between 4GB to 32GB LPDDR3 and between a 256GB to 1TB PCIe SSD.  Regardless of those choices you will have Intel Iris+ Graphics, Killer Wi-Fi 6 AX1650 (2×2), Bluetooth 5 and a pair of Thunderbolt ports all wrapped up in a 2.9lb package.

Ars Technica took it for a spin, testing both the performance as well as the overall physical design.  Check out the full review here.

However, the XPS 13 two-in-one doesn't unseat the HP Spectre x360 13 as our favorite Windows convertible. Both machines hover around the same premium price point, but the Spectre x360 13 has USB-A ports, an IR camera in addition to a fingerprint reader, a webcam kill switch, optional LTE and privacy screen, and an even longer battery life than the XPS 13 convertible.
