Dell is ready to launch a 2-in-1 PC with Infinity Edge display

The Dell XPS series will be enriched by a new 13-inch 2-in-1 laptop with an almost bezel-less screen. Launch in Las Vegas?

Nothing is certain yet, just speculation and an image found in the pages of the manufacturer's U.S. site. It would be the XPS 13 2-in-1 model (9365), but given the success of Dell's laptop family, it is very likely that the time has come for a convertible version.

The first to unearth the image on the manufacturer's site was Windows Central and the rumors about the imminent launch of this new member of the XPS family at CES 2017, scheduled in a few days in Las Vegas, have begun to make the rounds of the web. The technical specifications are shrouded in total mystery but the image suggests that this 2-in-1 notebook will show up at the appointment with an Infinite Edge display, that is, a screen with very thin bezels to make it very similar in look to a tablet.

The future is convertible

When Dell launched the XPS 13 in 2015 it was a very cutting-edge model. Microsoft, since then, has given manufacturers more reasons to build touch-friendly modular computers thanks to technology on its Surface Studio such as the Surface Dial, an innovative peripheral you place on the screen that activates a set of tools specific to the application in use making workflow much easier and smoother. And it seems that Microsoft is willing to allow other manufacturers to use it in addition to other possible innovations related to Windows. Convertible computers are, in fact, a perfect tool to exploit the full potential of Redmond's operating system. At least in the near future.
