Reviews for the Dell XPS 13 9315 2-in-1 Core i5-1230U
The XPS name is held to higher standards than your typical Inspiron or Vostro machine. The XPS 13 9315 2-in-1 mostly hits it out of the park even if it doesn't really offer all that much over the competing Surface Pro 8.

The Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 may not have the most mind-blowing specs and performance, but it’s an overall solid machine that serves its purpose well. Sure, I would have liked a few more ports and longer battery life. But if you want a relatively affordable computing device that’s equal parts tablet and laptop, you can't go wrong with the XPS 13 2-in-1. With that said, if you want a 2-in-1 with a bit more power, the Microsoft Surface Pro 9 is a Windows device worth considering. The iPad Pro 2022 with the Apple Magic Keyboard is pricier, but it’s a good alternative for those who want an Apple product.

The Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 comes with a price tag of Rs 1,39,900 which definitely makes it a premium product. The tablet comes with powerful and well-rounded specs which makes it a direct competitor of the Microsoft Surface Pro 8. The device comes with 12th Generation Intel chipset and Intel Graphics for better performance. Its sleek design and long battery life will also be liked by many.

The Dell XPS 13 9315 2-in-1 proves that the best way to do a convertible laptop is to be a tablet. With its detachable form factor and a lightweight folio case, the Dell XPS 13 9315 2-in-1 is very easy to carry and it makes not many compromises on the practicality side. The folio keyboard isn't quite as comfortable as a standard laptop keyboard but for most people, it does the job well. You will also like the display as well as the overall performance from the 12th Gen Intel U-series processor. Battery life could have been better but considering that the OS is Windows 11, Dell has done a good job of extracting decent stamina. At Rs. 139,990, the Dell XPS 13 9315 2-in-1 is quite expensive for a 2-in-1 and it competes directly with the Microsoft Surface Pro 9 with the 12th Gen Intel chips. The Surface Pro 9 is as good a performer as the Dell but the folio keyboard experience is worse. The 12.9-inch iPad Pro with the Magic Keyboard is another great option in this bracket with an superb display, longer battery life, and better speakers but its iPadOS 16 isn't as capable as Windows 11. Hence, the Dell XPS 13 9315 2-in-1 is easily the best 2-in-1 laptop you can buy today and becomes our top recommendation.

Dell's 2022 rework of its XPS 13 2-in-1 is a well-made, broadly useful detachable Windows tablet in the Surface Pro vein, with just a few quibbles keeping it from top marks.

The Surface Pro 9 isn’t the perfect Windows tablet. Frankly, such an animal doesn’t exist. But the Surface Pro 9 ends up being a better overall device than the XPS 13 2-in-1. The latter is a fine detachable 2-in-1, but it doesn’t provide any reason other than the price to choose it over Microsoft’s tablet. The XPS 13 2-in-1 isn’t as comfortable to use in tablet mode or with the keyboard attached, and it’s slower with less battery life. If you’re buying a tablet primarily for inking, then the Surface Pro 9 is a better experience there as well. Then again, price does matter. At the same $1,000 price, you get four times the storage with the XPS 13 2-in-1 than the Surface Pro 9, and when configured with 16GB of RAM and a 1TB SSD, the Dell is $700 less. That’s hard to ignore. But in the final analysis, the XPS 13 2-in-1 isn’t inexpensive enough to make up for its weaknesses, and the Surface Pro 9’s being so expensive doesn’t hand Dell’s tablet a recommendation.
