Shortly after Dell accidentally leaked details of the XPS 13 on its Canadian website, we get to hear about what’s inside the latest offering from the tech manufacturer. The price tag is steep for a 2-in-1, but after hearing about the internals, you’ll probably agree with the approach that Dell has taken.

Dell’s XPS 13 2-In-1 Sports Core M Processors – Company Promises More Than 12 Hours of Battery Life on These Products

While Dell XPS 13 does sport Intel’s Kaby Lake Core i5 and i7 lineup of processors, the model names of these chips have become a little confusing so allow us to remove that gap for you. The XPS 13 is still rocking the Core M lineup of chips, which was a necessity because then you would not be able to experience the 15-hour battery life that the company is boasting about its latest product (this is for the notebook with the 1080p resolution; the QHD resolution model’s battery will obviously be less). The machine also uses a fanless approach, which is probably why the company is able to reduce the thickness of XPS 13.

Thankfully, the 2-in-1 returns with the InfinityEdge display with a 5.2mm border. Additionally, you can purchase an optional Dell Active Pen for stylus input and there’s also a Thunderbolt 3 port included, so now you will be able to hook up to two 4K monitors and also transform the machine into gaming rig with a GPU enclosure, though you will be limited by processing power thanks to the Core M chips. The good thing about this is that Dell will also bundle a USB-A adapter in the box so people with regular USB accessories can still use them with the XPS 13 2-in-1. Dell has also removed its full SD card reader and opted for a MicroSD slot, and even though a slot is included, this is not going to make professionals happy when they hear about this.

The price for the XPS 13 2-in-1 is quite steep, coming in at $999; $100 higher compared to the regular XPS 13 that could not become a convertible. Do you think that the price tag is justified for a product like this? Tell us your thoughts right away.
