Reviews for the Dell XPS 13-9365 2-in-1

87% Dell XPS 13 9365 2-in-1 Convertible Review | Notebookcheck
Finally, a 2-in-1 InfinityEdge. Dell has successfully translated its award-winning XPS 13 notebook into a convertible with many of its original features intact including the design and display. Users will have to sacrifice some performance and features along the way when compared to the latest Ultrabooks.
The Dell XPS 13 2-in-1: Flexing Different Muscles
Source: PC Perspective English
Overall, I am left feeling pretty conflicted and confused about the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1. I've always admired the standard XPS 13 as a high bar for great PC notebooks, and I have become a fan of 360-degree hinges through the Lenovo Yoga series.

Hands-on with the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 convertible notebook (Updated with local pricing!)
Source: Hardware Zone English
Dell’s XPS 13 notebook is easily one of the best 13-inch notebooks available now. It has a wonderful display, it is supremely compact and portable, and it offered decent performance and battery life. There is really very little not to like about the XPS 13.

So, if you want an attractively styled, nicely slim 2-in-1 computer with a good pen (albeit as an option) for general use, go have a close look at the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1.

Dell flips its lid to create the XPS 13 2-in-1 [Review]
Source: Beta News English
The standard XPS laptop is already an impressive package and Dell has managed to add 2-in-1 functionality without sacrificing any of its attractions. There are some minor annoyances but really the only thing that lets it down is the high price, still if you want a premium product...

80% Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 review
Source: PC Advisor English
The Dell XPS 13 was already excellent, and it’s a smart move from Dell to release this hybrid edition without compromising the design and functionality of the original vision. The XPS 13 2-in-1 is an ultrabook that will likely fit in to any home or work environment better than many other laptops out there. The thin bezels, excellent keyboard and thoughtful design are marred only by a high asking price.

100% Dell XPS 13 2 In 1 Review – One Of The Best Just Got Better
Source: Toptenreviews English
To say that Dell has smashed it out of the park with the Dell XPS 13 2 in 1 Review is an understatement. The XPS 13 was already a winner, but the latest version now has incredible battery life and is fully convertible, making it one of the most desirable ultraportables on the market. Bennett Ring.

This review started with a primer about how the XPS 13 2-in-1 avoids some of the annoying parts of today’s trendiest laptops. The keyboard isn’t too shallow, the screen not too small and there’s a memory card slot, even if it is a tiny microSD one.

Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 review: The convertible king?
Source: Pocket Lint English
The Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 is a laptop you'll enjoy using, but probably won't like to pay for (in the UK at least). It's very slim and light, avoiding using one of those annoyingly shallow keyboards, which makes day-to-day use ideal. Its 360-degree hinge design is far subtler than most too, in particular the bling watchband hinge of the Lenovo Yoga.

Dell XPS 13-inch 2 in 1 — Review
Source: Ausdroid English
There’s a lot to like about this and I’m really impressed with the specs, performance and the looks of the XPS 13-inch 2 in 1. The review unit is the top of the line i7 with 16GB of RAM and the larger SSD so unsurprisingly there wasn’t any performance issues. For the average user though, the i5 with 8GB is going to fulfil your needs with grunt to spare and save you a significant chunk of coin in the process.

Source: V3.co.uk English
Value is the only major issue, though, and in this growing crowd of ultra-slim, low-connectivity laptops, the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 is probably the model we'd choose if we could pick any of today's selection. It's incredibly portable but is still a joy to work on, thanks to its high-quality keyboard and trackpad.

Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 (2017) Vs. 12-inch MacBook (2016): Smackdown Review
Source: Forbes English
It's so close that I'm going to put it this way: I have a longstanding preference for light laptops. The lighter the better (as long as the functionality isn't compromised too much). In this respect, I favor the MacBook. As I said, there's a big difference between 2.7 pounds (XPS) and 2 pounds (MacBook). That said, the XPS' faster performance, touch display, 360-degree hinge, carbon fiber palm rest, fingerprint scanner, and MicroSD card reader may appeal more to certain consumers and businesses.

So the choice is simple really. The Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 is slower, features less battery life, has a worse collection of I/O, and its best area – its design – isn't that much better than the Spectre. And this is all in a package that’s more expensive. Sorry Dell, but in such a competitive market, that’s just not going to cut it.

The XPS 13 2-in-1 is a beautifully built machine, but better rivals mean it isn't a sensible choice. Expensive and slightly flawed, the XPS 13 2-in-1 is a rare miss from Dell.

85% Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 review: A compact, solidly built convertible
Source: Zdnet.com English
The Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 is a compact and versatile convertible laptop with a great screen and solid build quality. The use of an Intel Y-series processor should not put mainstream buyers off, and battery life is good enough to get most people through a working day. The repositioned webcam is welcome too. The only downside is a relative paucity of (USB-C-only) connectors.

Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 review: The best laptop around learns a new trick
Source: Yahoo English
Using the XPS 13 2-in-1 as a tablet is a bit odd at first, though. The slate is pretty wide in portrait mode, which makes holding it feel a bit uncomfortable when you’re not resting it on your lap or a table. I did, however, like flipping the display over and using the keyboard as a stand to watch movies while making dinner.

Dell XPS 13 2-In-1 Review: Portable And Flexible Living On The Infinity Edge
Source: Hot Hardware English
And let's just come out and tell it like it is - if you were considering a 12-inch MacBook, the Dell XPS 13 2-In-1 is a better option in just about every measurable way. Or, if you're considering the current 13-inch MacBook Air, Dell's standard XPS 13, now with Kaby Lake, eats it for lunch. That may be just our not completely humble opinion, but that's what we do here, offer opinions. It's refreshing to see Windows 10 device OEMs like Dell leading the charge and the XPS 13 2-In-1 is on point.

Intel HD Graphics 615: Integrated graphics card in some Kaby Lake Y-series processors (4.5 Watt TDP) with 24 EUs (GT2) and no dedicated graphics memory. Clocks with Update to 1050 MHz depending on the CPU Model. Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  
7Y75: Extremely efficient ULV-SoC (System-on-a-Chip) for tablets and fanless notebooks based on the Kaby Lake architecture. Includes two CPU cores clocked at 1.3-3.6 GHz with Hyper Threading support as well as a graphics adapter and is manufactured in a 14 nm process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
13.3":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

1.228 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.


Dell: Dell Inc. is a multinational technology corporation that develops, manufactures, sells, and supports personal computers and other computer-related products.

In most countries, the laptops are directly sold to consumers by Dell and each notebook custom-assembled according to a selection of options. In 2014, the global market share of Dell laptops was 12.3% and it is 14% in 2016.
82.23%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
