Mine is thinner than yours: the new Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

Do you remember back in the day when people compared mobile phones, and all the rage was to have a truly small, lightweight phone that could fit in literally any pocket? Though not a phone, we have retained the idea of creating ever-lighter and sleeker devices, while increasing power, performance and permanence.

Enter the XPS 15 2-in-1 – “impossibly thin, improbably powerful”. Yes, we’ve done it! The brand new XPS 15 2-in-1 deftly brushes all previous generations aside and boasts true powerhouse performance with its quad core, 8th generation Intel® Core™ processor. Whether creating, editing or mega-tasking, the XPS 15 2-in-1 delivers balanced performance to experience what the future holds.

A few choice features:

  • CinemaColour, CinemaSound and CinemaStream work together to provide vibrant colours, studio-quality sound and a seamless, stutter free viewing experience.
  • The display is 18% thinner than previous generations, and the optional 4K Ultra HD display has a 100% Adobe RGB colour gamut and 1500:1 contrast ratio for clarity and accurate colour rendition. The view is spectacular from any angle!
  • The built-in infrared camera recognises your face, and the optional fingerprint reader integrated in the power button lets you log on with just a touch, so you only need you to log on.
  • The XPS 15 2-in-1 is far-field Cortana capable and responds to your voice from up to four metres away.
  • Dual fans made of liquid crystal polymer that are both the biggest we have ever put in a laptop (21x21cm) while also the thinnest, offering increased air flow and the silence of a one-fan design.
  • Customisable with quiet mode, ultra-performance mode, cool mode and optimised mode.
  • Graphite heat spreaders and remote heat exchanger that help diffuse heat while GORE™ Thermal Insulation protects you by directing the heat out of the device rather than through the case. The adaptive controls also detect when you are in laptop or desktop mode and adjusts accordingly, so you can run your new XPS 15 at even higher levels of performance.

Bits and bobs

The XPS 15 2-in-1 comes fully loaded with the most popular software, among them Microsoft Office 2016, McAfee LifeSafe to keep it safe from cyber-attacks, Adobe for file conversions, Dropbox for online storage, and Windows Hello – the friendly way to sign in to your computer.

The XPS 15 2-in-1 also comes with a range of optional accessories from the Dell Premium Active Pen – PN579X compatible with all Dell Windows based 2-in-1 notebooks, Dell Premier Wireless Keyboard and Mouse – KM717, Dell UltraSharp 25 Monitor – U2518D for a fab 25” screen, Dell Thunderbolt™ Dock – TB16 to charge and connect to a single data and power source – to the Dell Premier Backpack and Sleeve to keep your Dell products organised and protected while on the move.

And best of all? The packaging we use is eco-wise: 25% of the material consists of collected ocean plastics, while 75% is made up of other recycled plastics. Not only that: 90% of the XPS 15 2-in-1’s parts can be easily recycled or reused.
