Last year at CES in Las Vegas, Dell mades the XPS 13 into a 2-in-1. This year, it's giving its larger sibling, the XPS 15, the same treatment. The XPS 15 2-in-1 will launch this spring starting at $1,299.99.
It's powered by Intel's latest Kaby Lake-G processors, the Intel Core i5-8305G and Core i7-8705G, both of which include an integrated Radeon RX Vega M GPU for photo editing, video editing and even some light gaming.
You'll be able to choose from a 15.6-inch 1080p or 4K display, as well as up to 16GB of RAM and up to 1TB of storage.

Dell claims that the XPS 15 is the smallest and thinnest 2-in-1 of its size at 13.9 x 9.3 x 0.6 inches, or 16 millimeters thin, and it weighs 4.3 pounds. The company is also promising that the battery will last 15 hours on a charge.
The XPS 15 also includes a new internal thermal solution, which Dell says will keep the laptop cooler for speedier performance. A stylus will be sold separately and attaches to the base of the laptop with a magnet.
We'll give the XPS 15 a full review when it hits our lab this spring.
