While TechSpot's review is still pending, we liked what we saw from Dell's XPS 13 convertible during CES. First reviews started popping up confirming our initital impressions: the XPS 13 2-in-1 is a solid convertible laptop that inherits most positive traits from its standard laptop sibling, including those ultra thin bezels and great build quality. The judge is still out there on whether it surpasses HP's excellent Spectre x360, but it's hard to go wrong with either if you want a solid Windows laptop that can also perform as a tablet.
