DELL G5590-7176BLK-PUS REVIEW
Thanks to the durable hinge on this system, It was able to open up with just one finger – Not something you get in most systems nowadays.

The bezels on this 16:10 display are charmingly thin; it also comes with a Windows Hello-enabled fingerprint reader that acts as the power button.

Despite what it shows during the tests, the XPS 13 2-in-1’s panel was not so colorful as I was expecting. The display covers 113% of the sRGB color spectrum, which is decent enough. Still, it doesn’t achieve the premium laptop average of (131%). Although the Dell XPS lacked accurate color, it makes that up with its screen brightness. This system display reached an average of 516 nits of brightness, beating down the category average of 348 nits, if you ask me, this would be the best compensation for the lack of accurate color.
About the XPS 13 2-in-1’s keyboard, It seems a bit shallow, and while it offers some nice clicky feel, it also feels a little sticky. It is similar to the MacBook Pro’s keyboard. But for a fact, the typing experience is much comfortable on this keyboard.
As for the sound, at high volume, the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1’s bottom-blasting speakers were not as loud as I expected the sounds to be, although they sounded decent enough.

At the same time, Spotify also ran in the background. Also, on the Geekbench 4.3 overall performance test, the Dell XPS 13 2 in 1 had a score of 19,225, which is over the premium laptop average of 16,234.

On looking at the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1, you would notice the system’s lack of multiple port configuration. However, Dell manages to fit in the necessary port selection for an average user’s needs. On the left side, you get a microSD card slot one Thunderbolt 3 port, while the right side, you’ll see room for a headphone jack and another Thunderbolt 3 port. Not forgetting to mention that the system does come with an included USB Type-C-to-Type-A adapter. You might want to have a USB Type-C hub or a docking station to expand the number of ports.
it’s dual-channeled slots with 16GB DDR4-2666 SDRAM, can be upgraded to a maximum of 32GB.
Even as this system has a big screen and a higher resolution display, the XPS 13 2-in-1’s battery life extraordinarily remarkable, during continuous surfing on the web over Wi-Fi at 150 nits of brightness, the battery endured for about 10 hours and 57 minutes, exceeding the average premium laptop battery life of 8Hrs.
The Dell XPS 13 2 in 1 comes in its thin design and is packed with fantastic performance, also with a bright 16:10 display, and an outstanding battery life. Although users might not like the keyboard build and maybe would prefer more number of ports.
