Dell XPS 13 (2 in 1) – Five Pros & Cons!

by birtanpublished on September 21, 2020

If you've been following the channel for quite some time now you know that I have reviewed the normal version of the XPS 13 about a year ago and I really liked it especially for its near perfect balance between performance and portability Dell announced the new XPS

13 featuring the seventh gen Intel CPUs as CES this year alongside the new two-in-one option which is the one we're taking a look at in this pros and cons video so without any further ado let's get into the pros the Dell XPS 13 2 & 1

Is like all other XPS computers very well built and sturdy it's got aluminum panels on the outside making the device sturdy and plastic on the inside with a carbon fiber soft touch coating which makes a computer lighter than one made

All out of aluminum the hinge is robust the keyboard and display has no flex to them and overall the XPS 13 to in one feels like a tight and well-built package I really like Dells displays lately they have very small vessels

Which in turn makes the entire device smaller great touch functionality and responsiveness and they're also on top in terms of color accuracy and quality the one I have here is just a 1080p model which still looks good but it's

Also a qhd+ model available personally though I would prefer a display with a three by two aspect ratio as that would give you more screen real estate something like the display found in the surface book from Microsoft this PC is

Dells most portable one yet it's small and lightweight yet it's still very well built as touched on before it comes down at only one point twenty four kilos or two point seven pounds which is fantastic for such a well-built device

Dell is together with Apple and others on the USB type-c Thunderbolt 3 bandwagon and that's great it's such a powerful and versatile port for example you can connect this Cal digit dark to it with just one cable and charge a

Laptop at the same time as getting access to a whole plethora of other essential ports such as 2 USB type ace audio jack Ethernet DisplayPort and another USB type-c the laptop has no full-size USB port so the Cal digit dock

Is recommended although not essential in this case as they do include an adapter for one USB type a port in the box which is great to see something you won't find on a normal XPS 13 is a fingerprint scanner

Although there is one on the two-in-one model I am not sure as to why it's apparent here but not on the bigger model but nevertheless it's a great feature to have the scanner is quick and it's never failed to recognize my finger

So with the pros done let's take a look at five not-so-good things because of Dells very tiny bezels there was no place up top to put the webcam and therefore they have to put it below the Dell logo which basically

Renders it unusable if you're going to be faced calling anyone on this laptop they'll be looking up your nose you'll look like you're staring at something far away and if you're using the keyboard at the same time you'll just

Block the view yeah not a good placement so another con is the performance sure it's got this boost mode which significantly helps it through some of the more Hardware taxing things like watching high-resolution video or lights

Photo editing but it's not going to be able to edit your next you know 4k text video without stuttering and getting very very hot it's handled easier tasks like note-taking video watching emailing and browsing though like a boss but not

Anything more than that if you're looking for a better performer in the two-in-one space take a look at the Microsoft Surface book I have made a video about it just like this one so go ahead and check that out in terms of

Battery life it will last long enough for most people around 6 to 7 hours but to the surface book from Microsoft exist which gets around 10 hours of use the Dell XPS 13 2 & 1 has a very very awkward tablet phone and although the

Feature is there the laptop just doesn't feel like it was intended to be used as a tablet it's just too heavy and you're constantly touching the disabled keyboard which just feels weird and makes it hard to find a comfortable way

Of using it my last con is kind of a nitpick but it's been frustrating the hell out of me over these past two weeks and that's opening the laptop there's no way of doing it without just looking like a dumbass so there you go those

Were my main five pros and cons with the Dell XPS 13 2 in 1 what do you guys think of the laptop let me know in the comment section down below and also make sure to like or dislike this video and off to you guys in an
