With a starting price of $1,099, the new XPS 13 2-in-1 has a lot to offer, including a Core i3-1115G4 processor, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of solid state memory. For added oomph, you can upgrade to a Core i7-1165G7 CPU, 32GB of RAM, 1TB of SSD, and a 3840 X 2400 display (of course, you’ll pay more, with that upgraded version coming in at $2,249.99). If looks matter to you, you can slap down an extra $50 for the white (“frost”) version. And while we’re talking about extras, add an extra $60 and get the Windows 10 Pro upgrade.

The XPS 13 2-in-1 offers a 16:10 display and a battery that will last all day. It also comes with Intel’s newest 11th Gen “Tiger Lake” mobile chips and Intel’s best-in-class Iris XE CPU with integrated graphics. The laptop is EVO certified—a certification from Intel promising that the computer meets the needs of everyday home or office use. And if you’re a gamer, no need to worry. The laptop is up to meeting your needs as well. The 2-in-1 is built on an aluminum chassis and comes with Gorilla Glass for the screen.

It offers four ports (two USB-C with Thunderbolt, a DisplayPort, and a Power Delivery, as well as a headphone jack and a microSD card reader). The new webcam supports Windows Hello and the touchpad has been updated to a quieter version. All these features plus its slim design and premium build quality make the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 a worthy heir to the XPS 13 legacy, and a true contender for even the best laptops on the market.
