Ok, so based on these findings, I wouldn’t expect these Tiger Lake powered Dell XPS 9310 models to feel significantly different than their predecessors in daily use. Although the 11th-gen processors are able to run at higher-clocks, that’s hardly something that will impact your daily experience with these products, or have a significant impact on demanding loads that you might occasionally want to run. In fact, if that’s what you’re after, an AMD Ryzen powered configuration would be my recommendation instead, as those are significantly more capable in multi-threaded loads even in the basic Ryzen 5 variants. As for the choice between the two XPS 9310 models, I’d still go with the standard model for the matte screen option, the slightly nicer keyboard, and the more affordable price (especially if I can get it with a smaller SSD and upgrade it myself). At the same time, the 2-in-1 has its advantages with the form-factor and touchscreen, as well as the more capable thermal implementation, so it’s both of them are solid buys, just cater to slightly different needs.

This 2-in-1 has everything a great hybrid laptop needs: it’s light but well-made, it has one of the best non-4K screens going, and Intel’s new Xe GPU is even fit for some challenging games. Just make sure you're fine with a shallow, clicky keyboard before buying. Oh, and the 2-in-1 mechanism adds a significant premium too.

As always, Dell's XPS 13 2-in-1, just like the rest of the XPS lineup, is a winner. It's so compact and portable and it focuses on a range of use cases. My two biggest complaints are the MagLev keyboard, which you should really try before you buy, and that there's no 4G LTE option. And as I mentioned earlier, it's hard to cut Dell a break on the MagLev keyboard since no other OEM has to do it like that.

Unboxing the new Dell XPS 13 2-in-1, which gets an IR camera, slims down the bottom bezel, and comes with Intel's Tiger Lake processors.

Dell didn't do much to update the XPS 13 2-in-1, but then again it really didn't need to. It was already a great convertible laptop and now it has better performance and battery life than its predecessor. The one other small change -- the addition of an IR camera -- adds to the appeal since it means you can sign with face recognition when the fingerprint reader is inaccessible in stand or tablet modes. Just make sure you get all the storage and memory you need up front.

A few generations ago, the XPS 13 was nearly flawless, earning a five-star review. Both the 2-in-1 and the clamshell versions remain exceptional, offering class-leading performance and battery life in a sleek, compact, and sturdy chassis. But competitors have closed the gap significantly, even with models that cost less. This is especially true when it comes to performance, as is clear from the Ryzen-equipped Envy x360 13. The Dell's shallow key travel is also more of an issue than it once was, now that Apple has implemented a more comfortable keyboard design in its MacBook lineup.

I'll keep this simple. The XPS 13 2-in-1 is an excellent 2-in-1 laptop. I'm not quite ready yet to declare it the best on the market, but it certainly earns a spot among top rivals, like the Spectre x360 13 and Yoga C940.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.
The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
