Update: Dell has just confirmed that the XPS 13 2-in-1 convertible will go on sale in the US starting Jan. 5 on the company’s web site as well as BestBuy.com. It does indeed have the “Infinity Edge” display and can be ordered in either 1080p and QuadHD+ resolutions. Inside it can have either Intel Core i5 or i7 Kaby Lake processors, along with up to 1TB of SSD storage and up to 16GB of RAM. Battery life is supposed to last up to 15 hours and the notebook weighs 2.7 pounds. The starting price for the laptop will be $999.
Original story: Fans of Dell’s XPS lineup of high-end Windows 10 notebooks may be getting a new version of a popular model that will have a much-requested feature. This weekend, Dell posted up a page on its site that showed an image of the XPS 13, except it had a display that could move 360 degrees, turning it into a 2-in-1 convertible notebook.
The page, which was first spotted by Windows Central, shows the Dell XPS 13 with its “Infinity Edge” display, which almost completely ditches the normal bezel. It also shows the display in three different positions, including a tablet mode. Aside from the image and the name, the Dell web page has no other info on this new XPS 13 2-in-1, but it’s likely that it will come with Intel’s “Kaby Lake” seventh generation Core processors, like the current non-convertible version of the notebook.
The company could officially reveal this new notebook this week as part of the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. The company may also be planning to announce a refreshed version of its larger XPS 15 notebook at CES as well. It leaked, and then removed, a page showing the notebook earlier in December, and its published specs include a 4K display, Intel’s “Kaby Lake” processors and even a dedicated NVIDIA GTX 1050 GPU.
