2-in-1!! Had issues w previous ultra books (Yoga 910, dell xps 13, hp spectre 13, etc) and the touch helps when the laptop is spazzing out. Plus, we’re conditioned to use intuitive touch via our smartphones. Just makes sense to have 2-in-1
it should be an obvious answer since a 2 in 1 - hybrid is a superior device that can do more compared to a traditional laptop. The only problem would be the added cost but it is worth it in my opinion. Just think about it: having a 13-14 inch 2 in one slim ultrabook that has the required horsepower and versatility but at the same time allows you to carry it with ease anywhere? Sounds like a complete, proper device to me.
Great video @Matther Moniz! I found your channel specifically because I'm considering these two laptops.
Quick note on charging: The new Dell XPS 13 has a traditional charging plug, but it *can* also charge through the USB-C (Thunderbolt 3) port as well!
Great review. I am wondering why you did not make the comparison between Dell XPS 13 2in1 with Yoga 920. BTW, I just returned an HP Spectre X360 2in1 because to over heating (i7 8th, 16 GB RAM, 512 GB SSD). I liked its performance and design but the overheating was not tolerable. Now, I'm wondering with the same configs which would be the best choice: Microsoft Surface, Dell XPS 13 2in1, or Lenovo Yoga 920. Any feedback?
Russia_HM I have not made my mind yet. I noticed most of 2 in 1 laptop have overheating issue (the worst is HP spectre 360). The only models I found are more reliable are Microsoft Surface Book 2 and Toshiba Portege X20W-D.
Quite bit impressive.. The way you compare between both is clearly enjoyable and very telling.. I was, for one, confused and hesitant between both, and you clarified the path for me as a customer.. Thank you for your helpful efforts.. Keep it up!
I am really confused know there is the blade stealth the yoga 920 the spector 360 and asus zenbook delux all had the 8th gen upgrade but i dont knwo which one is the best for the money according to the features that they provide can you help me with that i need a good battery life with good performance and great keyboard for coding
I just returned a Spectre x360 (i7 8th generation, 512 GB SSD, 16 GB RAM) due to over heating. It's a nice laptop but I don't tolerate to pay over 2000 CAD to have a burning machine when you watch YouTube! So disappointed by HP.
The funny thing about the Lenovo is that with the 13.9" display and a wide aspect ratio, the usable area actually feels smaller than my 13.5" Surface Book's display.
In my opinion these are the best ultrabook out there, and I personally wouldn't go back to using a "regular" laptop without 2-in-1 capabilities, but the Surface 3:2 aspect ratio is the way to go and I will not look elsewhere unless it is adopted by other OEMs...
Nice, well laid out. I would go 920 with this info. BUT (DUM DUM DA!!!! "crash of lightening") Would the 8th gen core allow the 920 to work with MS mixed reality? Or do you need a dedicated graphics card along with it?
Hey Matt, I'm really in love with this new comparison videos. It's so much more intuitive and fun to watch. Btw, do you think we'll be able to see a comparison video between the 15 inch versions of this laptops? :)
Hey Mathew. I just have a small question. According to other laptop reviewers like Dave Lee etc the 8th gen XPS 13 doesn't have this much color coverage 98% SRGB and 78% ARGB in FHD model as you are saying can you please give it another try for color coverage or you can clear me out here as you like? I would really appreciate that.
abrahamnextel I know I'm responding pretty late, but they won't update the xps 15 until the new 45 watt 8th gen Intel CPUs become available. They are supposed to be unveiled in early 2018. They are rumored to be 6 core/12 thread, so performance should see a nice boost.
The i7-8550U is a kaby lake refresh. so they're calling it 8th gen but really it's using last years processor but adding two more cores. Coffee Lake which is the true 8th gen will be on the more powerful laptops that have 6 core cpus.
